Smart Hospitality: How D-ID Agents is Shaping the Future of Guest Services

When people travel, they want to feel pampered without a care in the world. As a hospitality business, you want to give every guest in your care that personal touch. In the wake of the temporary slowdown caused by COVID, the hospitality sector is experiencing a rapid increase in post-pandemic demand. There is also a growing need for technological advancements to enhance guest experiences by ensuring they are seamless, safe, and highly satisfying. But can hands-off customer service really fit into one of the most hands-on customer experience funnels out there? 

With D-ID Agents, it can. AI video avatars are helping the hospitality industry bring guest experiences to a new level of modernity, innovation, and customer-centricity.

What Customer Service Challenges Does the Hospitality Industry Face?

Hospitality management has its fair share of challenges. You want every guest to feel like a VIP, right? That means personalized greetings when they check in, and maybe some tailored recommendations for dinner spots or attractions in town. But it’s not just about making guests feel special. You also have to make sure you’re meeting and even exceeding their expectations all the time. Excelling at guest engagement is a lot of work and requires much training!

And that’s just one aspect of the day-to-day operations in hospitality. Handling check-ins, answering inquiries, and providing guest services – all of these need to be done efficiently to minimize wait times, maximize customer experience, and keep your staff productive. But how do you make operations more efficient without compromising the quality of service? Keep in mind that your guests could need assistance at any time of the day or night. How do you provide round-the-clock service without overworking your staff? 

And on top of all that, there’s the question of cost. You want to offer high-quality, personalized guest services, but you also need to keep an eye on your bottom line. Can you give your guests your all, or will something have to give?

Guest Service Businesses Can Overcome These Challenges With AI

Nowadays, AI conversational agents are used in a variety of frontline services in the hospitality industry. Designed for greater profitability, they reduce the number of human staff needed in a shift while improving operational efficiency and productivity by allowing employees to focus on more complex tasks. Chatbots can guide customers through the booking process or act as travel partners, providing written responses with simulated human language, offering a new entry point for customer relations and assisting operators.

These and other AI solutions combine technologies like RAG (Retrieval-Augmented Generation) and LLM (Large Language Models) to search knowledge bases for relevant information and use large-scale models to understand and generate language, respectively. Together, they create service experiences that feel personal and attentive.

Conversational AI uses NLP (Natural Language Processing) to understand and respond to what guests say or type, acting as a virtual concierge service. With AI avatars and AI videos, guest support becomes much more engaging, life-like, and interactive, as guests feel like they’re speaking to a human.  The AI Avatar experience fosters greater customer loyalty and trust than a traditional chatbot and is therefore a greater tool for guest service providers.
