The hospitality industry moves fast and mobile forms can help you keep pace with the ever-changing medley of demands that need to be met. From hotel room inspections to employee training, mobile forms help your team collect, share and organize information, faster. Additionally, because data collected using mobile hospitality forms is digital, supervisors can manage project progress, operational needs and employee training, straight from their device.
Digital hospitality forms can also host powerful new data types that traditional paper forms can’t handle. For example, if a hotel staff member needed to report room damage, they could include a photo in a mobile maintenance Work Order, leveraging their device’s native camera feature. The staff member could then annotate the captured Image using a Sketch field, highlighting important areas of the photo. Once completed, the maintenance Work Order would be instantaneously available for review, and could even be Auto-Emailed to maintenance personnel. This Automated Workflow reduces delays, resulting in improved responsiveness and more thorough communication.

Hotel Facility Safety Checklists
Your guests are trusting your team to keep them safe and comfortable. Mobile Hotel Facility Safety Checklists empower your team to collect more detailed, timely safety information –– resulting in optimized risk management and a more thorough understanding of emergency procedures.
Digital Facility Safety Checklists simplify the confirmation of specific safety features being met. For example, inspecting fire extinguishers, fire alarms, pool or exercise equipment and exit signs. Leveraging instant data routing, hospitality management can easily monitor and address safety needs in real-time.

From changing sheets to reporting damage, hotel housekeeping is a detailed task. Using digital Housekeeping Checklists and mobile turndown service forms, allows housekeeping personnel to record the completion of specific, vital tasks, without disrupting their workflow.
Digital Housekeeping Checklists can feature Checkboxes noting the completion of each task. Checkboxes can also be equipped with simple logic, alerting supervisors to facility damage, missing items and more. Digital Housekeeping Checklists can also be designed to pre-fill current user information (e.g. a staff member’s name, employee number, etc.) eliminating the need to re-enter the same employee information with each room serviced.
Restaurant Food Safety Checklists

Digital Food Safety Checklists can also leverage simple business logic within their fields, allowing restaurant personnel to quickly alert management to pressing issues. For example, if an employee were to select a Checkbox noting that pests were present within the facility (an extremely time-sensitive issue) the mobile form can be instructed to Alert managers, who can then address the issue immediately.
