Owners of Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide have unveiled a software application known as Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) that would empower travellers and guests to book and check into any of its 1200 hotels around the world with ease. The application will assist travellers in each stage of their journey, until they get to their final destination. In a statement signed by its Nigeria Public Relation Manager, Mr. Tyem Nanji, in Abuja, said the new application will help travellers leverage on the emerging technology platform, adding that this is a way to get closer to its guests all over the world.
The application, Nanji disclosed, was built and designed entirely by Starwood’s IT team with the goal of delivering an exciting seamless experience for its guests. He said: “Starwood’s new SPG app for Google glass demonstrates the company’s continued leadership and first adopter approach to offering an enhanced guest experience through the latest digital technologies. “This is the first ever hospitality Google glass application and is the only one currently available that enables booking a stay of Starwood’s hotels around the world.”
According to the statement, travellers are more tech-savvy than ever before, explaining that the wearable application provides information in an easy to access way to support the needs of its guests while enhancing their travelling experience. It stated: “Our goal is to explore these new technologies and learn from our guests’ interactions with them so we can continue to deliver the best experiences at every point in their journey, from when our guests are dreaming about next destination to when they walk in our front door and beyond. “The personalized interface of the SPG app for Google Glass is ideal for any explorer, whether; the guest is searching for upcoming business trips or for long summer vacation.
That application provides users with critical account information, including numbers of Starpoints and upcoming and past stays to help tavellers make the most of the SPG membership.
