Qooco boosts mobile learning in China’s hospitality sector
Qooco and East Sunnet Technology have entered in to a partnership that will see Qooco’s mobile learning solutions promoted throughout East Sunnet Technology’s hospitality clients in China.
With over 4 million members, and 6,000 hotels, East Sunnet Technology works with some of the leading hospitality companies in the country, as well as over 300,000 hospitality students.
Qooco will provide its language leaning solution, Qooco Voice, as well as its vocational solutions Qooco Pro and Qooco Upsell, for a partnership of seven years until 2023.
“As China becomes more developed, and business and tourism grows, its hospitality sector will become more competitive, with hotels differentiating themselves through higher quality service” says David Topolewski, CEO of Qooco.
“Classroom-based tuition has much less impact on students today, rather, mobile learning has been proven to produce better results, in a shorter amount of time, and much more cost-effectively,” said Topolewski. “Mobile learning is scalable, meaning hotel chains can easily scale the learning program across multiple properties and countries, and results come in real-time, so that training managers can view progress, providing relevant support and feedback where necessary.”
Yi Qiao, founder and CEO of East Sunnet Technology, said mobile infrastructure and mobile penetration in China is already high, and is growing. “The majority of employees in China’s hospitality industry are young, tech savvy, and are heavy users of their smartphones, and mobile learning is clearly the preferred tool.”
The Qooco mobile learning solutions that will be on offer are already in use by hundreds of hotels around the world, ranging from large, brand-name luxury hotels to resorts and boutique properties. The vast majority of hotel employees have smartphones, and are more comfortable learning from a screen than they are from a book.
East Sunnet Technology will be offering Qooco’s mobile learning solutions to its hotel clients, as well as hospitality colleges, and full support will be provided by the Qooco China team.
