Diamond Resorts

Diamond Resorts International® wanted new technology to heighten customers’ experience in the lobby. What they implemented would enhance the entire journey of their guests - before, during and after the trip.

Diamond Resorts International® desired a lobby system to improve the guest experience in reception areas and expedite the arrival process. They wanted to promote merchants and attractions near each resort, and synchronization of content across multiple guest-facing platforms was a key requirement to avoid unnecessary data re-entry. Having over 300 properties, Diamond wanted an partner experienced with launching worldwide on a similar scale. Maintaining brand integrity meant a cloud-based framework was crucial for content creation at both headquarters and property level. Monscierge had the infrastructure and features of the initial vision of DRI, and a mobile application for accessing the lobby and other travel information from a smartphone device.

Industry Vision

While Diamond Resorts International® expected cutting-edge products from their vendor of choice, they also wanted a partner with a voice in the industry. Monscierge creates resources to progress and empower hospitality staff beyond the implementation of technology.

As the World’s fastest growing timeshare organization, the flexibility to add new resorts as soon as they come on board without having to republish mobile apps was critical. Utilizing Monscierge’s patented technology, integrated partners, and hospitality resources, DRI progressed the relationship between time-share owners and brands by strengthening the service connection. What began as a way to improve the check-in process would come to revolutionize DRI’s guest satisfaction strategy.
