New Business Center Computers, Complimentary Guest Access and Additional Monthly Revenue for Hotels

If you have ever been in the offices of a hotel, behind the desk and behind the scenes, you have seen the hallways in the back are unfinished and the offices are pieced together with mismatched furniture and hand me down computers. This is not because the hotel overlooks the admin, this is because every penny of the hotel’s revenue is focused on the guest rooms, amenities and experience. The dedication of a hotel lies in guest satisfaction.

So how do the hotels come up with extra capital for amenities such as business center computers? Working in the hotel tech industry for a decade, I have witnessed the struggle that this can be. With so many expenses, every dollar is precious.

Programs like SurferQuest’s revenue sharing were created to alleviate this burden and help hotels to provide their guests with access to brand new machines and that much appreciated extra revenue.Without any investment required, SQ will upgrade the hotel business center to brand new computers, services, apps and printers.

In the past, revenue sharing required the hotel to charge guests for business center access. As more and more hotels are offering complimentary access this is no longer possible, thus not allowing hotels to profit or enjoy the benefits of such programs.

Why not have it all?

With SurferQuest’s new revenue sharing model, guests can access the computer free, while the hotel will still get a completely upgraded business center AND an additional revenue stream.

How does it work?

Simple. Guests will not be charged for computer access, but will be charged to print. With everyone carrying a smart phone these days, the largest percentage of business center traffic is generated by guests requiring a printer. Access, the computer at no cost, and print what could not be printed from the phone.

Everyone is happy! The hotel has brand new computers and printers to provide their guests while making extra money each month, and guests have free computer access.
