The guest information book is dead

What do guests want?

The most important thing of course is a good night’s sleep. But after that, they rely on their host to provide them with the information they need to have a fantastic stay.

Accommodation providers have struggled with this for years, penning page after page of information and creating the traditional guest directory with content such as where to go, what to see and how to operate the appliances.

Guests don’t have access to this before they arrive, and during their stay they don’t want to be wading through screeds of paper.

Give guests what they want

Nowadays, all the information guests need can be found on their phone. So why not give them the information you know they need on their own device with your own guest welcome app?

How do I do that?

Using criton for 2 to 3 hours will let you dump the traditional guest directory and give your guests a cool guest information app.

Use our app builder and chose from our range of templates and layouts and customise your app with your branding. You can change every element, from startup image, logo, colours to icons. Add your content with our pre-built pages or create your own.

You can test and publish your app directly from criton. No need to send your app to Google Play and iTunes, we take care of that for your. You can also publish your app as a web app – a solution that will suit your short-term guests.
