Rustington Manor Hotel offered a meal give-away voucher through local radio station, Spirit FM on the radio station's website. The trouble was that staff members at the hotel could never be sure whether a presented voucher had been previously claimed or not and management had no data to show how well the promotion was working. In this high-pressure environment, tracking voucher claims became a major challenge.
Using Vendavoucher's easy-to-use interface, Rustington Manor Hotel imported SPirit FM's voucher codes and uploaded these to our system. They also copied the terms & conditions from the station's website and attached those to the import.
They then embedded claim-form in Rustington Manor's own website. Now staff can verify a voucher with a single button-click the moment a guest presents it.
The whole process took less than half an hour.
This project's success lay in several key product features:
No change to the hotel's existing IT infrastructure or, more importantly, that of its promotion partner.
Use of the supplier's codes was essential in this business case. Vendavoucher offered this feature out-of-the-box
Staff can manage voucher claims seamlessly within the hotel's own website.
Setup and website embedding and staff training took less than 30 minutes
Staff can now validate a voucher claim with a single button-click during service
No voucher code can be claimed twice. Dates and times of claims are recorded and available to management as required.
This has been so effective that management has now instituted a new policy; Vendavoucher will be used for all the hotel's offers going forward!
