SuiteLinq(TM) Launches Windows Phone 7 Application
EXTON, Pa., June 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — SuiteLinq, Inc., provider of digital content, commerce, and connectivity solutions to the hospitality industry, today launched its newest mobile product developed specifically for Windows Phone 7. Designed to seamlessly extend the intuitiveness and functionality of the SuiteLinq Digital Host into the hands of hotel guests, SuiteLinq’s Windows Phone 7 will be demonstrated for the first time to attendees at this week’s HITEC 2011 conference in Austin, TX.
Featuring interactive hotel information, room service ordering, property way-finding, human or data-triggered alerts and more, the mobile product aims to help hoteliers connect to, inform, and engage in commerce with guests both on-site and in-transit. As with SuiteLinq’s Desktop and IPTV / IPVOD products, the mobile product can be customized with content and branding specific to individual properties, creating a new guest touch-point that is consistent and familiar across all SuiteLinq devices.
Offering a mobile product for the Windows Phone 7 platform expands the reach of SuiteLinq’s services while facilitating systems integration with the company’s existing product portfolio, all of which is built and deployed on the Microsoft stack of software and applications. SuiteLinq’s CEO, Joseph Mustilli, states that, “Our clients are increasingly in demand for solutions that reach their guests in a meaningful way on their personal mobile devices. Specifically, they are embracing the need to engage in a two-way dialogue with their guests when they are on the way to the property and during their stay, opening the door to all kinds of service enhancement and revenue generation opportunities. For example, SuiteLinq’s Windows Phone 7 product enables a guest on the golf course to order room service for later and bill the charge to their room. Likewise, hotel staff can message the guest with data-driven and customizable communications — maybe about a special on that vintage wine they enjoyed during the last visit. Putting such functionality in the palms of guests’ hands is a significant service enhancement, but being able to integrate those same interactions across the array of digital devices that we provide is unprecedented. With anchored SuiteLinq devices in the guestroom and public areas, we’ve turned our focus to the mobile segment as an appropriate and valuable complement to our product portfolio.”
