SuiteLinq(TM) Enters Into Alliance Partnership with Preferred Hotel Group(TM) for North American and European Markets
EXTON, Pa., Oct. 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — SuiteLinq, provider of integrated content, connectivity, and commerce solutions to the hospitality industry, today announced that it has contracted with Preferred Hotel Group(TM) to be its exclusive North American partner and its preferred European partner for guest-facing technology. Chicago-based Preferred Hotel Group has more than 850 best-in-class hotels and resorts in 70 countries and represents five distinctive brands: Preferred HotelsÂ® & Resorts, Preferred Boutique(TM), Summit Hotels & Resorts(TM), Sterling Hotels(TM) and Sterling Design(TM).
From the perspective of SuiteLinq’s President, Craig Ziegler, the agreement with Preferred Hotel Group further validates SuiteLinq’s marketing-first approach. “From day one, our mission at SuiteLinq was always to apply technology smartly to solve the evolving marketing challenges of the best brands in the hospitality industry,” he states. “Our perceived competitors have always approached the market from the reverse angle, leading with their technology product and trying to squeeze marketing value out of it. Limited options offering limited success. As a technology agnostic solution, SuiteLinq maximizes and adds value to the hotelier’s investment in HSIA, PMS, POS, CRM – all of the technologies and systems resident in high-end hotels. By integrating them with our proprietary Digital HostTM, we connect guests to the in-room and on-site entertainment, information, and commerce they want, when and how they want it. We are proud and honored to bring this approach to Preferred Hotel Group here in North America and Europe.”
As Preferred Hotel Group’s guest technology partner, SuiteLinq joins world-class brands such as Coca-Cola and American Express that also have the opportunity to serve Preferred Hotels’ guests. According to Thom Nulty, Senior Vice President, Preferred Hotel Group, the move to SuiteLinq demonstrates the growing importance of digital amenities in the hospitality industry. “Today, having access to exceptional connectivity and technology is a top priority to ensuring guest satisfaction and we are constantly seeking opportunities to offer innovative technology solutions to our member hotels. SuiteLinq is an ideal partner as their solution gives our hoteliers a completely customizable suite of options to meet their experience creation and revenue generation needs – now and into the foreseeable future.”
