Stayzilla has revamped its mobile application and ensure that hosts & guests remain connected 24 x 7 in locations which has poor connectivity. The new version of app is designed to overcome data connectivity challenges in the farthest areas. As of now, most of these homestays are located in regions where there is no internet connectivity. In such areas, the booking gets no response & is lost due to its poor connectivity from the home owner or host’s end.
Commenting on the feature, Pankaj Gupta, Chief Product and Technology Officer, Stayzilla, said:
“Stayzilla has hosts and homestays spanning the breadth and depth of India. This app ensures that bookings can be realized end to end irrespective of the underlying data connectivity. We continue to work on exciting technical and product solutions to serve our mission of connecting travelers with hosts on Stayzilla.”
Sayzilla offline feature will connect the home owner by the guest by sending notifications on the app via SMS when the host is in data offline mode. The home owner needs to have a phone with cellular connectivity (even without 2G/ 3G) to receive the booking confirmation on his/ her mobile phone. Additionally, Stayzilla also ensures connectivity with the host through automated IVR, wherein he/ she is able to confirm bookings. The cognitive feature of the app predicts whether the host’s phone has internet connectivity or not and determines intuitively to reach out either via SMS or app notifications accordingly.
