Overall, Canary Tablet Registration has modernized our check-in process. It’s seamless, sustainable, and saves us time and money.

The solution: Modernizing the front desk with Canary

Mr C Coconut Grove transformed its check-in process with Canary's Tablet Registration solution. Guests now complete digital registration forms on tablet devices at the front desk.

No more wasted paper.

Staff have time back to focus on hospitality rather than manual data entry. Additionally, storing guest data in the cloud ensures easy retrieval in the event of chargebacks, and saves on storage costs.

"Canary's Tablet Registration has been crucial in our sustainability journey, significantly cutting down paper usage," he said. "With Tablet Registration, we've eliminated 700-1,000 sheets of paper per month."

Front desk agents appreciate the legible, organized digital records that integrate directly into their property management system. Guest feedback has been positive as well.

“It’s helping us enhance the guest experience,” he said. “Typing information out instead of writing everything is easier for guests. As a result, our guest information collection has improved significantly, which is a key point for us.”

The results: A leaner, greener operation

Implementing Canary Tablet Registration came with a host of benefits for Mr. C Coconut Grove:

  1. Significant paper savings. The hotel saved 700-1000 sheets of paper per month, cut ink usage by 50% and reduced costs on paper, ink, and pens.
  3. Faster check-ins. Tablet Registration reduces guest check-in time, enhancing guest experience.
  5. Streamlined front desk. Staff no longer spends time on manual data entry. With Tablet Registration, all guest data is automatically stored in the cloud and easily accessible.
