Save Time with ROLLER’s Must-Have Self-Service Guest Experiences

Save time with ROLLER’s must-have self-service guest experiences

Self-service options aren’t just a nice-to-have, they’re something consumers expect. In fact, 88% of online shoppers prefer using self-service options. So, now is the time to incorporate self-service functionality into your venue to take pressure off your staff and elevate your guest experience.

Read on to discover ways to streamline your operations through ROLLER’s self-service features. 

The value of time at attraction venues

Time is a precious commodity at attraction venues. Every moment guests spend waiting in line is a missed opportunity for fun. So, for venue operators, efficiently managing time means happier guests, which can result in an improved bottom line through positive word-of-mouth referrals and repeat visits. 

Another factor that makes time crucial for attraction venues is labor costs. Any task that absorbs staff time can be seen as costly. So, it's crucial to streamline operations in any way you can. Fewer hurdles in day-to-day operations means staff can focus on the truly important things, like ensuring your guests are having a great time. 

The benefits of self-service options

ROLLER's suite of self-service solutions is here to transform how venues operate. By integrating options like online ticket bookings, mobile food and beverage ordering, digital waiver signing, and self-service ticketing kiosk solutions, guests gain the autonomy to manage their visits with ease. 

Embracing ROLLER's self-service solutions offers a wealth of benefits for both guests and venues:

  • Staff efficiency: Automating routine transactions allows staff to reallocate their focus towards enhancing the guest experience.
  • Improved guest satisfaction: The convenience and control provided by self-service options lead to a more positive visit, encouraging repeat business.
  • Smoother operations: With reduced manual tasks, venues can operate more efficiently, accommodating more guests without compromising on service quality.
  • Enhanced revenue opportunities: Self-service options facilitate easy upsells and more efficient handling of peak times, contributing to revenue growth.

Incorporating ROLLER’s self-service solutions into your venue's operations is more than a strategic move—it's a commitment to enhancing guest experience while streamlining your operations.

ROLLER's self-service solutions

Online bookings

Long queues and fun days out don’t gel together. Given the option, many guests prefer to book their tickets ahead of time. 

ROLLER helps venues achieve this by offering a seamless online checkout process with integrated payments, allowing guests to select a product or experience and pay using their preferred method in just a few clicks. 

By incorporating smooth online bookings into your operations, you can reduce the volume of phone calls and emails you have to respond to while increasing ticket sales through online conversion. Talk about a win-win. 

We’re making money while we sleep. We get an extra $600-$700 per day from online bookings.

Mobile food and beverage ordering

What if we told you that increasing sales while decreasing overheads is on the menu? Enabling guests to order food and drinks from their smartphones could be the missing ingredient to your business’ growth. 

Through QR-based ordering, guests can place orders with just a few clicks. This self-service option is incredibly convenient for visitors and means you need less staff taking orders at POS, allowing you to save on labor costs. 

Another benefit of mobile ordering is that your guests will love it. Visitors won’t have to spend time lining up to order and will be free to browse your menu at their leisure.

Online accounts 

Plans change all the time, so make it easy for your guests to alter their bookings with online accounts. With ROLLER, your guests can create their own account during the online checkout process to adjust session times, change ticket dates, add items to their booking, upgrade or reactivate their membership, and more!

Each of the above points will reduce the time you and your staff spend on the phone or reading and replying to emails. On top of saving you time, online accounts also reduce customer pain points by giving them more control. 

ROLLER’s new online accounts feature is phenomenal. Our guests have the flexibility to edit their bookings when it suits them, rather than having to get in touch with our call center. Not only is it increasing customer satisfaction, but it’s saving us time and money on labor. We’ve already had almost 1,500 guests create online accounts in just a few months.
