A Blockchain solution
IHG recently announced that it had partnered with VeChain and third-party DNV GL certification. To develop a Blockchain system, which allows your guests to inspect the cleaning history at your hotel.
Guests will be able to scan QR codes located throughout the hotel, to verify when that area was last cleaned.
In fact, Yang Lu, VeChain co-founder for Guangming Daily, said: “Blockchain technology will become an important guarantee for multiparty cooperation and mutual trust“
Similarly, the InterContinental Shanghai is also incorporating delivery robots for room service. This is to ensure that there is as little interaction as possible between the guest and the hotel staff.
