LoungeUp Co-Founder And CEO Statement
LoungeUp co-founder and CEO Mathieu Pollet stated, "The integration of Dmbook Pro's technology allows us to offer our hotel clients the potential to track each guest request from beginning to end. Any room-service order, spa treatment reservation or online check-in initiated by guests through the LoungeUp solutions is then processed by the Dmbook Pro solution. This ensures the request is properly followed up internally by the hotel staff. For the manager of an establishment, it's the best way of ensuring that the guest experience is of the highest standard throughout. When procedures are optimised and internal communication is improved, the quality of service becomes outstanding."
DmBook Pro Co-Founder Statement
Meanwhile, DmBook Pro co-founder Bruno Lanvin commented, "We've already worked with the LoungeUp team in the past to integrate our two products, which was greatly appreciated by our hotel clients and considerably enhanced their experience. This move seemed to us to be the natural next step in Dmbook Pro's development to a more comprehensive and better connected solution."
