Star Ratings Australia Partners with ReviewPro to Improve Guest Experience at Australian Hotels

20 Jan 2015 by ReviewPro in Press Releases

ReviewPro just signed an important partnership agreement with Star Ratings Australia, the country’s national accommodation ratings organization.

Star Ratings Australia undertook the partnership with the aim of improving the overall standards of hospitality and the guest experience provided at hotels countrywide. The partnership will be comprised of two phases:

In Phase One of the partnership, all Star Rated properties throughout Australia will receive free access to ReviewPro’s ORM solution, along with the Global Review Index™ (GRI), the industry standard online reputation score used by hotels worldwide as a benchmark for guest satisfaction.

With these tools, Star Rated properties in Australia will obtain deeper insight into operational and service strengths and weaknesses from online feedback, so they can increase guest satisfaction and drive revenue growth.

Phase Two of the partnership will provide ReviewPro’s Guest Rating Score™, along with Star Ratings Australia’s rating scheme, to consumers looking to book with an Australian hotel, a very important step in improving transparency and providing potential guests with the most accurate information about each Star Rated property in Australia.

The partnership is noteworthy for two major reasons:

• It will provide the majority of Australian hotels with access to ReviewPro’s Guest Intelligence solutions.
• This is the first project of its kind to incorporate guest reviews into traditional star ratings programs on this scale, and it is a vital step towards creating more transparent hotel businesses in Australia, with the objective of correctly aligning traveler expectations to provide guests with the most accurate information about each Star Rated property.

As Australia is one of the ten largest tourism destinations worldwide, and as the partnership provides ReviewPro’s solution to thousands of Australian properties, this represents a powerful new model for supporting hotel quality and improving guest experience across the country.
