1Check was conceptualized in 2011 by Virginie LAFON as part of the Best Craftsmen in France competition, where she emerged as the winner in the Hotel Services Governess class. With the participation of Pierre LAFON, an expert in new mobile technologies, a prototype was developed and implemented in the Radisson Blu hotel as a beta version.
The purpose of this solution is to digitally transform work procedures related to cleanliness, maintenance, and quality control, aiming to improve communication between three main services: reception, housekeeping, and maintenance. Quickly adopted by other accommodation-related sectors facing similar challenges, 1Check is also used in outdoor hospitality, tourist residences, theme parks, cruises, rentals, health, and facility management.
1Check is designed for teams working in interaction throughout the day. Communication and action tracking are immediate and seamless.
As a mobile application, information exchange occurs in real-time among all collaborators, enhancing responsiveness and productivity by reducing movements within the establishment.
Connected bidirectionally to PMS (Property Management System), the 1Check solution automatically retrieves real-time room statuses and facilitates direct mobile terminal status changes.
This enables direct communication with reception teams, real-time room status visibility, and better informing clients about room availability.
In this manner, 1Check also collects reservations, providing access to various predictive modules that facilitate operational management (linen management, schedule management, etc.).
1Check offers a SAAS (Software as a Service) solution, adapting to business-specific needs.
It is an ergonomic, easy-to-deploy solution that equips all staff through a mobile application and an online-accessible software.
