We needed more than just automation we needed a communication revolution

The breakthrough came with Runnr.ai. Initially, Robert Wilmms: “I was skeptical, hesitant to add another layer to our tech stack during such turbulent times. But as administrative queries piled up, the need for an efficient, human-centric solution became undeniable. We needed more than just automation; we needed a communication revolution. So we embarked on a pilot with Runnr.ai, and within three weeks, we saw such a dramatic shift in our guest interactions and staff efficiency that rolling it out across all locations was the only logical step. Our guests now enjoy personalized service right from their smartphones, and our staff can focus on what they do best‚ÄĒcreating memorable experiences.”
