Piloting at Valamar Riviera d.d Sales Department, Dubrovnik-Babin Kuk

Piloting for sales managers at Valamar Riviera d.d. Dubrovnik-Babin Kuk

 

On 20 August 2015, I prepared piloting the project KeySkills4EUHotelStaff at Valamar Riviera d.d. Dubrovnik-Babin Kuk. I mainly focused on the FrontDesk programs and the mobile apps as the presentation was for sales managers for people who will mainly use it in the hotel sector.  Therefore, I showed them how the FrontDesk programs work and how to use them on the tablet. I presented the smartphone app with the help of David’s PowerPoint presentation but also on my smartphone. All participants of the presentation had been sent the apps and FrontDesk programs to install them on their tablets and mobile devices so that they could start using them.

The evaluation sheet asked for general information and more specific information regarding the presentation. Nine participants of the presentation filled in the evaluation sheet. All of them gained useful information on the project. One found the presentation of the project very useful, whereas seven thought it was useful and 1 quite useful.

Regarding the smartphone app all of them answered they gained useful information. Eight of them use Android OS and one of them IoS, none of them use Windows nor Others OS. Six of them evaluated design of the app very good, one of them excellent and two of them good. Two of them said it was very easy to find the information in the apps they were looking for, five of them easy and two of them quite easy.  If the apps were available on their device two of them would use it very likely and two of them likely, three of them quite likely and two of them not very likely.

Regarding the usefulness of the apps for their companies, two answered that the apps would be very useful, one answered useful and six quite useful. Three of them would very likely recommend the apps to others, four of them likely and two of them quite likely. Three of them answered the question about knowing any hospitality-based multilingual apps that this was the only one, two said not many and four said very few.

Regarding the FrontDesk programs all of them answered that they gained useful information, eight of them use Windows OS, one uses Apple.

Two of them evaluated the layout and design of the Front Desk programs excellent, four of the very good and three of them good.

Piloting byTuriba

Piloting of apps and the Front Desk programme at Turiba University

 

The piloting of the application programmes and the Front Desk programme was carried out at the premises of Turiba University on 8th and 9th July 2015 within the framework of the Erasmus + project “Key Skills for European Union Hotel Staff”. Both members of Turiba staff as well as students were involved in the piloting of the application programmes and the Front Desk programme. The aim of this piloting activity was to see how the two smartphone apps and the FrontDesk-2 computer program perform in practice and to suggest any improvements or additions to the content that may be considered useful or necessary. On the whole the application programmes and desktop programme were well received and participants suggested adding more creative features to the programmes in the future to make the learning process more interesting.
