This project was designed for Domus Academy’s Service and experience Design competition and was awarded the second place prize. Easy Booking & Pre Check In, Airport Check In and Personal Closets are all part of the service set, which can be offered to regular VIP customers. Easy Booking & Pre Check In is designed to improve the satisfaction on booking and check in processes. Airport check in is designed for the viP regulars who want to go directly to a meeting right from the airport or do not want to carry their bags till the check in. And Personal closet service is the highlight of this service set and designed for the viP regulars who don't want to carry any luggage or to keep it very light. VIP regulars can leave some of their personal belongings in hotel. Projects consist of 2 personas, customer journey and 2 blue prints.

VIP Regulars Service Set It is a fact that accommodation experience in business trips is limited with late night services and sleep due to the constraints of time and busy schedules. Every business traveler especially the frequent travelers know the difficulties of packing for short trips, fitting in a small carry-on bag and carrying it with them all day for the early scheduled meetings. And also after a busy and tiring day waiting some more on reservation desk to check in can be annoying. This service set is designed to extend the limits of experience and to create new touch points for the customers to improve the accommodation experience during the business trips. Easy Booking & Pre Check In, Airport Check In and Personal Closets are the part of the service set, which can be offered to regular VIP customers. This service set is for the customers who visit a city let’s say Milano at least 3 times a month. As it is defined in the personas, our service’s target groups are professionals whose businesses highly connected to the companies in Milano. All VIP Regulars should have a “Personal Key Card” (PKC) (with magnetic stripe or RFID), which can be used as a key to enter the rooms. Easy Booking & Pre Check In: This service is designed to improve the satisfaction on booking and check in processes. VIP Regulars can call, text (sms) or e-mail directly to the numbers or e-mail addresses, which are defined for them. All they need to do is to tell / write check in and out dates. Booking Center staff will book their room and check them in as soon as the schedule of the rooms is set. After they set the room, they will assign the Personal Key Card to be used as a key for the room. Airport Check In: This service is designed for the VIP Regulars who wants to go directly to meeting or visit right from the airport or don’t want to carry their bag till the check in. After the arrival VIP Regulars can go the reservation desk or the office of the hotel in the airport. They can check in and give their luggage. If they didn’t pre checked in, receptionist will assign their Personal Key Cards to the rooms and will send their luggage to their rooms with the shuttle. Personal Closets: This service is the highlight of this service set and designed for the VIP Regulars who don’t want to carry any luggage or to keep it very light. VIP Regulars can leave some of their personal stuff in hotel. It can be anything like white shirts, reserve suits, special vegetable shampoo or razors for men and couple of shoes, underwear, cosmetics or special massage oil for women. When they are checking out, they can labor the ones that need to be clean and all stuff will be ready for the next visit in their rooms. This service set will provide a better customer experience for business travelers. Taking their luggage in airport will let them save time. Allowing customers to leave their stuff in hotel not only helps them for their next trip but also generates guarantee booking for hotel. We may call it customer engagement with guarantied loyalty. This service set also brings marketing value with higher positive visitor experience. When designing the service set I first draw the Customer Journey Map to see and analyze in detail customer’s regular experience on traveling. Then I prepared two personas to understand my target group better. And finally I prepared the Service Blueprints to show how the services work, who involves the service process and the touch points of the service. I also added; feasibility, SWAT and benefit analyses on Blueprints to demonstrate the advantages of my service set.
