New York (PRWEB) June 13, 2005 -- Hospitality industry innovators, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants has selected New York-based Coyle Hospitality Group (CHG) to assess quality in its growing and diverse collection. CHG provides quality-assurance consulting and mystery shopping exclusively to hotels, restaurants and spas worldwide

Coyle Hospitality Group has created quality metrics that are both applicable to Kimptonís diverse brand today and able to scale with Kimpton as it grows the Monaco and Palomar brands in North America. With modifications designed specifically for Kimpton, CHG has employed its InnsQore software model.

InnsQore is a user-friendly SQL database program developed and hosted by CHG to meet the unusual mystery shopping needs of the hospitality industry. Hoteliers, restaurateurs and now spa managers are able to fully customize their mystery shopping program, and immediately receive the benefit of being able to action their data. Reporting is dynamic and made-to-order for the client.

Kimptonís unique operating standards reside online at InnsQore, allowing all Kimpton stakeholders to remotely access mystery shopping data and disseminate the information with the click of a mouse. InnsQore is interactive, allowing management not only to immediately identify trends and cross section the data to their needs, but to also leverage their know-how without the burden of static reports and paper.

ďThe data tools are exceptional," remarked David Martin, Vice President of Hotel Operations for Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants. "With InnsQore, we can now instantly spot global and micro trends, create action plans, and use the data fully in concert with our other CRM programs. The integration has been seamless, and the quality of the data has been excellent. Everyone at the corporate and property level can get what they need without being bogged down with paper."
