How does the Panic Button System find the closest room?


Our Panic Button System utilizes Bluetooth Low-Energy Beacons in order to locate the closest room. We customize our client's BLE Beacons in order to fit their specific hotel. Once one (1) beacon is placed in each room, the Panic Button Smartphone Device is ready to find the closest room. Our application uses proprietary code that scans and filters REVLAB Beacons in order to only find the Bluetooth devices we approve. The Panic Button application constantly provides updates when the user's location changes to a new room within the property.




Why is a Panic Button System neccessary for my property?


Many states / cities have mandated that system be in place to protect lone-workers from harassment while on the job. A Panic Button System cuts down the response time tremendously by providing room-based location!

My hotel has been around for a long time and has steady business. What more can be done to improve upon my business?


We've seen many hotels in the industry have a steady flow of customers. Maybe gaining new customers shouldn't be your main goal at this point. Building your brand's identity and fortifying the relationship you have with your existing customers will likely be your best bet. Some businesses feel once they've had a customer once, then that customer will likely return. In actuality, there is a ton of competition out there that your customer might choose next time instead of you. The way to address this problem is to maintain a digital relationship with your customers through Social Media and Email Marketing. Keeping your hotel in the minds of your existing customers is how you maintain a steady stream of business.




How would you go about bringing in new customers to my business (Hotel / Restaurant / Bar)?


REVLAB has a ton of experience in the hospitality industry. Our team has insight into the industry and experience on what works best. Bringing in new customers really depends on your business itself. For example, when it comes to restaurants, we would suggest showing off the food people come there for. Getting your dishes out there on Social Media and growing a following will greatly improve customers likelihood of spreading the word about your business. Once a customer comes in and eats at your restaurant, they should want to come back before they even are served their food!
