Leaving something behind can be a major pain point for hotel guests. Since the recovery process is often the last impression they have of their visit, it can have a lasting impact on their overall experience and satisfaction levels. Therefore it is important hotels place the same importance on the level of service delivered with lost and found as they do at the front desk.

Hotel operators unsatisfied with lost-and-found practices of the past have switched to digital methodologies, such as lost-and-found software by Chargerback. This web-based system acts as a ledger that keeps track of guest items left at a hotel, and also allows for interactions between guests and hotels as both parties seek to reunite lost items with their owners.

The bathing suit left hanging in the bathroom in Bangkok. The phone chargers left plugged into hotel room walls in San Diego, Washington, D.C. and Phoenix.

A Better Way to Reunite Lost Items With Owners

ON a business trip a few months ago, I lost a little electronic device called a Fitbit that hooks onto a belt, measures physical activity and keeps daily records online. It had cost around $100, and I realized with dismay that it was missing only after I got home. But I didn't make any effort to ask my airline or hotel if they found it. Cynically, I figured, why bother? Wrong.

The lost and found departments at most hotels can easily be compared to a piled-up purgatory, where left-behind phone chargers, keys, and jewelry await a reunion with their owners. And since the lost and found process is often such a hassle, most of those items continue to take up space in the nooks and crannies of hotels until they are deposited into a landfill. But a new company is setting out to reinvent how hotels handle lost and found procedures and help guests reunite with their personal possessions in an efficient and timely manner.
