Makati Shangri-La, Manila Continues to Support the Environment with its New Paperless Check-in and Check-out System

Makati Shangri-La, Manila has recently launched its new paperless check-in and check-out system, which is a first in the Shangri-La hotels and resorts in the Philippines. With an investment totaling more than P4 million in equipment and system upgrade to accommodate this new process, the paperless check-in and check-out system is made even more seamless and cost-effective with a drastic decrease in the consumption of resources.  

In line with Makati Shangri-La, Manila’s efforts to support the environment through the company’s corporate social responsibility (CSR), this new technology easily allows guests to access their stay details with a click on a tablet computer, while checking in and out of the hotel can be done simply by signing on the tablet using a stylus. The guest receives the billing receipt electronically via e-mail for reference. This new paperless check-in and check-out system allows the hotel to save on its yearly paper consumption of more than 200 reams of registration cards and more than 800 reams of guest folios, translating to an estimated saving of P1.2 million.

As a certified ISO 14001 establishment, Makati Shangri-La, Manila ensures that the hotel upholds high quality and standards while significantly saving on its energy usage and consumption.  This new process not only supports the environment, but also provides guests with a more streamlined and seamless check-in and check-out experience.
