News for the Hospitality Executive
|DENVER, CO – August 4,
2009 – Roomlinx,
Inc. (OTC: RMLX), the innovative supplier of hospitality in-room
products, today announced that they have recently installed Roomlinx
Interactive TV at seven hotels over the past eight weeks.
Roomlinx Interactive TV is an entertainment
and business solution geared towards increasing revenue and brand
hotels while offering a highly integrated media platform for customers.
Over the eight week span, Roomlinx spent time in Chicago installing six hotels, including theWit, a 4-star Doubletree hotel. The Bohemian Hotel in Savannah, GA also installed Roomlinx Interactive TV during the eight week period and is the second Kessler Collection (www.kesslercollection.com) installation for Roomlinx.
“We’ve spent time in Chicago building our customer base as part of a targeted U.S. expansion,” said Roomlinx CEO Mike Wasik. “The continued rapid growth of the Roomlinx platform serves as a strong validation for our business model and the value that a converged media platform can add for hotel customers.”
Using Roomlinx Interactive TV, hotel guests can access Hollywood and specialty movies, high speed internet, traditional free-to-guest television, high-definition content, business tools, world radio and TV, and property information with the click of a button. For hotels, the Roomlinx Interactive TV product provides an effective strategy for new revenue streams, value-addition, brand loyalty and e-commerce.
Roomlinx’ proprietary ad platform gives hotels a powerful tool for generating advertising revenue while at the same time offering guests a portal to local restaurants, services, attractions, maps and more from the comfort of their rooms. Hotels can also use the space designated for the ad platform to build brand loyalty and drive guests towards on-premise restaurants, gift shops, room service, reservations and event planning.
Chicago’s newest 4-star hotel, theWit, recently implemented the Roomlinx Interactive TV product as part of their strategy to stay on the cutting edge of technology.
theWit CTO, Darrin Pinkham, commented: “The Roomlinx team has demonstrated the utmost care and professionalism in making the in-room media installation as smooth as possible. Roomlinx is clearly the product hotels will need to stay competitive; Roomlinx understands that guests demand not only on-demand movies but access to internet services as well as the ability to connect their own mobile devices. We look forward to a long relationship here together at theWit and hope to have Roomlinx included in every new project we do together.”
The rapid expansion follows closely on the heels of Roomlinx’ positioning as an approved supplier of interactive TV for InterContinental Hotels Group and IBM’s “Hotel-in-a-Box” solution, which offers a suite of technologies to hotel managers.
Roomlinx is the hospitality in-room expert providing in-room Interactive TV products designed to increase revenues and brand loyalty for hotels, resorts, and other properties, utilizing premium content and applications demanded by today’s traveler.
