Orlando—June 21, 2010—Worried about switching from a Vista-to-7 or XP-to-7 computer environment at your hotel?  If so, turn to TTI Technologies and the worry is over -- at least for the Business Center environment. Early next month the provider of self-service business solutions to hotels, resorts and hostels will begin offering the Windows 7 operating system on all Business Center computers to new customers.
 
“Easier to use and more secure than previous operating systems, Windows 7 is a perfect fit for hotel Business Centers,” said Alex Lerner, TTI Chief Technology Officer. “It comes with many business applications including touch-screen capabilities -- opening up a world of opportunities for hotels to differentiate themselves. Windows 7 also will mark a transition to a 64-bit operating system, for a more robust computing environment.”
 
TTI (www.ttitel.com) provides guest-computing systems that are easy to operate, require minimal staff interaction, and include design, installation and on-going 24/7/365 management and support. Solutions include: Driver’s License, Passport and ID Scanners; Business Centers; Boarding Pass Printing Stations; Self-Service Concierge and more. TTI will showcase its solutions at the Hospitality Technology Exposition and Conference (HITEC) June 22-24 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Booth No. 559.
 
“Providing a home-like environment is top of mind for most hotel companies,” said Steve Blidner, TTI President. “Tech-savvy business travelers routinely upgrade their software and expect to use the same environment when traveling. At TTI, we not only help properties improve guest service and increase supplemental revenues, we also provide the latest software development tools on the market.”
 
Because TTI owns the source code for its Business Center software, Lerner said system upgrades are easy -- whether it's to a new Microsoft operating system or interfacing our Business Center software with a hotel's property-management system. Owning the code gives TTI the flexibility to work with any hotel, unlike other companies who are at the mercy of outside partners to provide them with licensed software and perform any upgrades.
 
He explained that TTI software is modular and built on .Net technology. Therefore it's very easy for the company to modify features and elements as needed or required by its customers.
 
“Whether the hotel decides to change its revenue model for Business Center services, implement Free Boarding Pass Printing, add special features, or migrate to the latest operating system, it’s simple and cost-effective with TTI,” Blidner said. “Any hotel looking for a new Business Center solutions partner can receive the latest in equipment and Windows 7 functionality with no risk, only gain.”
