In-stay Upselling Functionality

With Oaky’s In-stay Upselling, you can now automate the upselling process throughout your guests’ stay. So how does it work?

You can either place QR codes at your hotels advertising your deals that guests can easily book just by scanning a code with a smartphone. Or you can include your deals in the check-in email that guests will receive as soon as they’ve settled in. Guests can access deals and add-ons at the most convenient times for them. They don’t have to go to reception or call the front desk to get their requests fulfilled.

The new functionality will also save time for your team. Now that all in-stay upselling-related communication takes place via Oaky, guests get quick responses to their requests. And since your team will be updated about new requests instantly, they’ll be able to provide their services without missing anything.

If you’re keen to enable In-stay Upselling for your hotel today, make sure to take advantage of the early bird discount and use the newly rolled out functionality at a reduced cost till the end of 2022.
