The App is currently being trialed by clients staying in one of the Galleria properties where Murphy’s has a substantial presence. Once feedback has been received and reviewed by the Murphy’s team, the roll out of the App will continue across their Houston properties with a target completion date of mid November 2013.
Charlie Bingham, Murphy’s General Manager, explains: “The App has been designed with the end user in mind. It should enhance the experience of our clients – whether it is by giving GPS directions from the airport to their apartment community or giving specific directions to their apartment once at the community. Once settled in, the App allows a user friendly method of establishing what facilities are in the neighborhood such as restaurants, museums, health clubs and other amenities that guests from out of town frequently want to know about.”
“We pride ourselves on being market leaders – whether it is with the biggest televisions, the best furniture, most desirable Class A properties or Guest Services Team and this is a further testament that we want to ensure our clients receive the best experience when they stay with Murphy’s. As far as we are aware we are the first Corporate Lodging company in Texas to provide this kind of service and we are so excited to give all of our clients access to the App over the coming weeks.”
