O-Valet app use benefits
Upon guest arrival, the valet driver greets and issues a ticket to the guest. Tickets can be SMS, paper, or re-usable plastic. From here, capture valuable data from the guest such as name and date of departure. While the guest walks inside, the driver will then log any additional data to prevent false damage claims and note vehicle condition before it is moved.
For instance, the vehicle can now be photographed for any pre-existing damages, either by the driver, or the O-Valet Eye camera system. Total accountability is maintained by logging the valet attendant's name and time to each action performed.
The driver parks the vehicle then makes his way to the keybox area. Here, the valet driver logs the location of the vehicle. For reporting purposes, the valet operator will know how quickly the driver completed parking and can compare it against other drivers in the company.
Optionally, O-Valet can be integrated with any gate arm to control access and log vehicle and parking information. This prevents the entry gate from opening unless the ticket is scanned in the system beforehand, eliminating ticket skimming entirely from your valet operation.
Guests can request their vehicle in advance via SMS, an app, in their suite, in-person, or at any kiosk on your property. Valet staff are immediately alerted and can initiate the vehicle retrieval process.
With the O-Lounge TV, guests can relax in the lounge area and hear an announcement as soon as their vehicle is at the door. Retrieval time is immediately recorded for the driver to be compared against other drivers in your staff.
O-Valet allows guests to pay however they prefer. This can be through SMS, their mobile phone, any O-Valet kiosk, or at the cashier upon requesting for vehicle retrieval. Payment can be made via credit, debit, cash, or any validation comp account you assign.
All payment history and information is recorded on O-Valet, including previously voided transactions, payment methods, and more.
