Great for anyone working in hospitality
The app is a fun way to remind yourself (or employees) of the common sense items we should be doing at our properties every day! The layout is easy to use, and I like that Educational Institute updates the tips. Like one of the other reviews said, there really aren’t any other apps that provide this sort of information for hotel and restaurant workers.
Sure, the app has some marketing information included, but, hey, it is free!
I really like this app. I use it to give myself a quick check up, and coach myself on how I can continue to grow in this industry. Some tips may seem obvious or common sense based, but I look at them as a reminder that the basics are very important. I also use it to remind myself of the other areas in my hotel, I get so involved in my responsibilities that i don't always think of the other departments.
Way to GO!
Keep going Educational Institute, there are many of us out there that really need to continue to learn and grow. You know who you are!
