|Orlando – June 23, 2010 – MTech,
a leading developer of Software as a Service (SaaS) products aimed at improving
service and efficiency for the hospitality industry, recently revolutionized
the housekeeping process in hotels by allowing its Room Expeditor or REX
SaaS-based housekeeping application to run on either the iPod Touch or
iPhone via the hotel’s wireless network. To give hotels more options in
terms of carriers and network types, MTech has extended support for REX
to Android™, the new mobile operating system powered by Google. The Android
application for REX is on display this week at the Hospitality Industry
Technology Exposition & Conference (HITEC) this week at the Orange
County Convention Center in Orlando.
“At a time when technology providers are deploying solutions on the
iPod Touch and iPhone, we have already tackled those applications and are
looking at the next set of devices required to meet the needs of our diverse
client base," said Luis Segredo, MTech Founder and President. "We love
the Apple platform and are huge fans. Still, some of our customers needed
options, so we responded.”
The look and feel of REX on Android is very similar to the iPod application,
he said. Hotels that are challenged with Wi-Fi or AT&T cellular
coverage can now consider an Android device. In addition, various cellular
wireless carriers have set special REX data plans for Android devices that
are very attractive. Version 2.1 of the Android operating system is required.
“With REX, a room attendant refers to his or her Droid to be instructed
on 'the next most important room' to clean,” Segredo said. “Then the software
will look at a collection of variables from multiple systems like the property-management
and in-room energy-management systems to determine if a guest is waiting
and what his or her VIP status is, or if the next room is still physically
occupied. Because the room attendant just sees the next room, it’s simpler
than any paper process."
