TabitHotels integrates guest charges into the hotel ecosystem by name and room number, including mobile and contactless ordering at the hotel restaurant, pool, casino, resort and more.

“Tabit perfectly complements Stayntouch’s approach to delivering a seamless and comprehensive mobile customer journey,” said Reid Webster, Stayntouch’s vice president of strategic growth. “Guests who prefer completely contactless check-in and check-out can now also enjoy the convenience of a fully mobile dining experience during their stay. Restaurant staff will also benefit from increased efficiency, as they will be able to manage all hotel restaurants under one centralized system.
