As hotel automation technology develops, hospitality professionals at all levels, from owners and operators to general managers and sales directors, are automating more and more of their standard operating procedures.

They operate based on settings, rules, and parameters established by the implementing user, and continue to perform necessary hotel processes on behalf of the business, even when no managers are on-property to actively manage the systems.
