Wyndham Hotels & Resorts recently announced that it is all set to launch a new mobile application for iOS and Android users. The company hopes to combine best-in-class design with personal experiences, account management, gamification and much more. The new Wyndham app will provide travellers with a reimagined user experience to inspire upcoming getaways and 2021 travel plans.
The app, which prioritises low-contact in-stay features, comes at a critical time as both travellers and hoteliers look for innovative, digital solutions to help navigate the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic. The features and functionality that simplify the hotel booking process is the major among the key offerings in the new app. It would allow mobile check-in, increased speed in bookings and digital room keys.
Jessica Davidson, Senior Vice President, Digital, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts said in a statement that at present travellers are seeking drive-to accommodations and Wyndham offers the power of established brands that they know and trust. She shared that the app would be a game changer for everyday travellers, especially those travelling during the pandemic and deliver features guests expect today alongside a robust foundation for the future.
She added that the app could not have arrived at a more critical time and mentioned that the pandemic has propelled digital adoption and hence travellers now expect streamlined, low-contact experiences. She stated that the app allows thousands of Wyndham franchisees to help deliver upon those expectations, while providing the easiest and fastest possible path to booking direct. It’s a win-win both for guests and for the franchisees.
