Operations Director - The Vincent Hotel Group
13th October 2017
Six Star have supported TVHG for over a year now and GMs that have moved on to other businesses have made the choice to useSix Star's services which is probably the highest commendation they can have.
I was shocked how we were left exposed by the previous support company in numerous ways, and in today’s era of having to focus on PCI and GDPR Six Star have quickly assessed our weak points and resolved this. It has cost me money to fix the issues but this is immaterial in comparison to what goes wrong if servers are full, networks are open or guest information isn’t wiped when required.
Of course a concern in the early days was could an English based company support the Netherlands but again looking at the issues we had when they took over, today there are minimal.
In summary, they provide 3 levels of support for me:
- Critical - in the early days a reception key encoder broke down at one hotel, no back-up solution in place. Within 2 hours six star had the hotel up and running using their network of resources compared to the nightmare we were originally faced with by the supplier of delivery next working day of a new encoder which would then need to be configured.
- Tactical - support and resolve issues where required to agreed SLA timeframes. With the exception of one issue around batteries which in the end, our Account Manager personally got involved and focused his team to resolve, there have been no issues needing senior management resolution which is a good sign. They are focused on the customer and service which is different to many IT companies out in the market place.
- Strategic - provide insight into what’s happening in the world of IT for the business and provide recommendations on solutions – planning not just for the short term but medium and long term too.
I can confirm that I have no personal involvement or interest in the company other than a vision that the more hospitality companies that use them the more their buying power the better deals we all can get and greater efficiencies that can be offered.
