Runtriz™, a leading developer of innovative mobile and digital technology solutions for hotels, resorts, and casinos, today announced a new strategic partnership with Glympse, the pioneer of real-time location technology, to bring smart shuttle tracking capabilities to hotels and their guests.

Courtesy shuttles have long been a favorite amenity among guests, but with the convenience and low cost offered by ride-hailing apps, hotels risk losing their competitive advantage if they can't make the experience convenient and frictionless. Not to mention, some reports indicate that as much as 40-70 percent of calls to the hotel front desk are inquiries about the status of the courtesy shuttle. The collaboration between the two technology innovators will take the Runtriz mobile app to the next level by using location data to create end-to-end guest experiences, taking the frustration and guesswork out of the hotel transportation services. Hotel guests will know exactly when their shuttle will arrive and hotel staff will know when the guests will be arriving at the hotel.

"Our goal has always been to develop solutions that help our clients maximize revenue, optimize productivity and enhance guest experiences at every touchpoint," said David Millili, CEO of Runtriz. "Hotels rely on the Runtiz technology to provide guests with frictionless 24/7 mobile access to a wide variety of hotel services and local information, so partnering with a best-in-class provider like Glympse was a natural extension of our offering. We couldn't be more pleased to provide our clients with smart shuttle tracking technology as a significant added value platform enhancement."

Benefits of the enhanced smart shuttle tracking features to Runtriz hotel app clients:

"Hotel shuttle services are a major brand differentiator to drive guest satisfaction and loyalty," explains Chris Ruff, CEO and president of Glympse. "Unfortunately guests are very often frustrated because of the uncertainty they face trying to predict when their ride will arrive. Integrating our smart tracking technology within the unrivalled Runtriz mobile functionality helps address this challenge, providing a more positive guest experience while reducing operational costs."
