Wakeup Calls

With a few keystrokes, guests can schedule their own wakeup calls on their room phones. User friendly prompts walk them through the process and play a confirmation of the time and date. Guests can even set multiple wake-up calls for the same room.

Hotel staff can also schedule wakeup calls for the guests, either by touch-tone commands on the telephone set, or through InnDesk with a point and click interface on any PC on the network.

A friendly call Unlike other systems that simply ring the phone, DuVoice plays a custom wakeup greeting when the guest answers. This greeting can be changed daily if desired. Guests can even specify one or more ‘snoozes’ after the initial wakeup call.
