Having AVA has helped us in terms of overcoming staff shortages and improving customer experience, but what’s impressive is how fast it took off our close collaboration with local businesses and encouraged more tourists to explore Hualien.
Farglory Hotel Hualien, opened in 2002, is the first international five-star hotel in Hualien County. Together with the Farglory Ocean Park in eastern Taiwan, Farglory Hotel Hualien is among the most profitable projects by the Farglory Group.
The hotel is built 220 meters above the sea level, designed in romantic, Victorian style with stunning views of the Pacific Ocean and the Central Mountain Range.
“Farglory Hotel Hualien offers a truly dazzling experience for the guests, both new and old.”
The excellence of five-star hotels, like the Farglory Hotel, is driven by outstanding employees & effective staff management. Answering all phone calls, responding to each and every guest’s request gets truly overwhelming during the peak season.
Hotels operating at high capacity need the staff to juggle multiple things at once. This labor-intensive and expensive time calls for solutions that generate more efficiency within operations, and minimize labor costs.
Farglory is an enterprise group focused on leisure tourism. Their goal is to bring a local experience closer to their guests and tell the story of Hualien as a destination.
Farglory Hotel Hualien was searching for an attractive way for their guests to learn about the surrounding scenic spots, cultural sights and farms signature to the Hualien. The hotel wanted to be at the forefront of promoting the destination and the local experience to visitors.
AVA helps Farglory Hotel Hualien to collect data on customer behavior and guide marketing strategies.

With AVA the hotel found out that 23% of the customers ask for housekeeping service or hotel-related information. The management team can update the information they offer to their guests, based on the guest’s frequently asked questions.

“What are the best places to visit?”
“Where can I get local food?”
“Where to buy local souvenirs?”
Besides top tips for sightseeing in the surrounding area, AVA gives the guests options to visit local farms, cultural sights, or attend DIY courses, and cooking classes.
