Avvio’s allora & Shiji’s ReviewPro Integration Enhances and Personalizes the Booking Experience

Partnership between allora and Shiji’s ReviewPro allows hoteliers to increase booking conversions.

 

20th of September, Barcelona – ReviewPro, a Shiji Group brand, and the leading guest experience platform, together with allora, the AI-powered hotel booking engine created by Avvio, announce a chatbot and booking engine integration that helps hotels maximize their website conversion and increase direct bookings.

Travelers researching their next holiday will use ReviewPro’s Guest Communications solution to find the information directly on the hotel website. An AI-driven hotel chatbot seamlessly collects the booking details via natural human communication, transferring this information to the allora booking engine once the guest is ready to book. This makes for a seamless and efficient experience for the guest and increased conversion rates for hotels.

This is the first in a series of planned enhancements to allora. Frank Reeves, CEO at allora, explained: “With the increased use of messaging and a growing need for efficiency and automation, it is clear that chatbots are here to stay. As the leader in AI-powered hotel booking and retention, it’s only natural that allora worked with Shiji’s ReviewPro to further improve the experience of our users. ReviewPro’s booking assistants can increase direct bookings and website conversions and also create better experiences, thanks to a simplified and personalized booking process. We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial partnership.”

ReviewPro’s messaging solution answers more than 80% of repetitive guest queries automatically and instantly. Guests receiving the right information at the right time are likely to spend longer and book on the hotel website. Any queries or requests the bot cannot answer are automatically routed to the right department whether before, during, or after the stay, ensuring the guest has 24/7 communication and resolution from the hotel anytime, anywhere, from the messaging app of their choice.

“Our latest product, Guest Communications, is a multi-layered messaging platform with an AI-driven chatbot that can make visitors stay longer on your website by offering the right information there and then when the guest needs it”, says Michael Kessler, CEO of Shiji’s ReviewPro. “However, we need great partnerships like allora to then turn those visitors into direct bookings, by seamlessly going from a conversation to a reservation”.

Guest Communications is a guest messaging platform that allows hoteliers to automate their incoming and outgoing communication by leveraging an AI-driven hotel chatbot and automation tools. The solution brings together communication from multiple channels into one inbox, including WhatsApp, WeChat, Facebook Messenger, and Instagram. Any guest request coming in is automatically routed to the relevant team member with an integrated case management system.

Benefits of the ReviewPro & allora Integration

This integration will tackle several pain points for both guests and hoteliers, including the issue of tedious booking procedures, missed opportunities for revenue, and lack of clear and relevant information.
