MGM Resorts International made its reputation, quite simply, by being the best. Bellagio, Luxor, and Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas are among its properties, and the company is rapidly building its premium brand in the United States and worldwide. Its commitment to the highest quality guest experience is legendary in the industry.
Realizing that engaged and motivated employees are the key to providing that customer experience, MGM Resorts looked for the best partner to help make that possible. And they found Workday.
For any business that serves customers each day, a comfortable waiting room is essential. Service-oriented companies strive to provide all of the best amenities to guests, including coffee, bottled water, and free Wi-Fi. These amenities not only show a customer service-oriented attitude. They also serve to make the wait time more enjoyable by giving visitors something to do.
Restaurants are complex businesses with a simple aim: great guest experiences that keep customers coming back for more. In order to achieve this goal, stores must deliver on the promise of a great product and exceptional service.

There are also elements of a successful restaurant that are consistent across any operation. Restaurant executives have long been on the hunt for this elusive lever (or combination of levers) that systematically drive performance regardless of conditions.

Another must have feature of any modern Availability solution is self-service restore. Self-service restore is essentially a delegation, or granting the task of restoring files within the guest OS to users that have administrative rights. In many organizations, there are users who are responsible for the applications running within the VMs. These application owners are the primary administrators for the files and folders within the VM — so why would they have to go to a backup administrator to simply restore a file? Self-service restore allows these applications owners to log into a portal, search through the content of the backups for their VMs only and perform any necessary restores of those files back to their original or new locations.
While providing your customers and guests with Wi-Fi, you can give them pertinent information, individual attention, and special offers.

They also expect personal service. You can give them both, which can help boost your sales. And in doing so, you can gain information that will help make your venue more attractive and profitable.
