Solution

HOTEL CLASSIFICATION (see Chart 3)

Establish a new Rating System for high quality/new-technology-Hotel standards


based on the conventional rating symbolism with stars classifying quality of Services and Hotel characteristics + Hotel Contents

  • Implementation of a new hotel standard rating system + definition of a new criteria system
  • categorizing system ranks Hotels and Services regarding their media Infrastructure and technical Instruments,  Media Services etc.
  • gives information about given Communication Technologies of Hotels

benefits

  • me and all Hotels is the first to establish a future standard in new technologized houses
  • me and all Hotels is the benchmark for other high technologized hotels to come
  • me and all Hotels communicates its role as pioneer in this area by creating new rating system
  • me and all Hotels gives the guideline of classification names the new  evaluation criteria

Rating Criteria / Rating System (see Chart 4)


More and more upper star category houses get rid of the model of categorizing their high standard level by hotel stars. Legislative novelties or industry sector specific guidelines (for example the PharmaCodex disables Pharma companies to book luxury segment hotels (5stars) for medical conventions etc.) are just some reasons turning the rating system using stars out to be a competitive disadvantage.


Solution: New ways of categorization


It´s time to create new systems describing hotel standards, contents and levels

  • create new system for hotel categorization --> set/establish a new standard
  • categorization of media systems, networking facilities of future-oriented, high technology Hotels

  • me and all Inkognito takes advantage of the familiar structures, similar to those used in sozial Networks and Communities, where using pseudonyms is established habit

System / how does it work?


A Software generates the Guest-Inkognitos automatically, by using syllable components and putting them together in a random order to combine them to individual and unique Inkognitos.

The sillables are built of consonant and vowel sequences, which allow allways harmonic-sounding Inkognitos as a result. A great range of unique Inkognitos can be created with this system. (see --> Logstoff.com)
