with Intelity Technology

 
Orlando, FL – February 4, 2011Intelity, an innovative and pioneering hospitality software solution company, has arrived at The Plaza and deployed its award-winning ICE Touch (Interactive Customer Experience ™) software on iPad. This revolutionary guest-facing technology makes hotel services and local information available at guests’ fingertips while significantly improving operational efficiencies in the back of the house.
 
Plaza guests will encounter “luxury – redefined” with access to anything they need or desire using ICE software on in-room iPads. This gives customers 30 guest services that range from ordering in-room dining; making dinner reservations; arranging beauty and spa appointments to coordinating transportation; getting tickets to the hottest show in town; making housekeeping requests and much more. Whatever The Plaza offers, it is there for guests at the touch of the screen. Additionally, the Intelity ICE software will allow guests to browse for local information such as maps and directions, flight and airline information and local offers and discounts.

“The implementation of ICE technology at the world renowned Plaza hotel is a milestone for Intelity and a clear indicator that a technological revolution for the hotel industry is in full swing,” said Intelity CEO, David Adelson. “By giving customers the three C’s – convenience, control and content - the hotel is able to greatly enhance its value as a luxury service provider while dramatically increasing its efficiency and ROI,” he added.  
 
Intelity’s ICE Technology – A Hospitality Revolution
As the world’s first full interactive guest service interface with full, real time backend management tools, ICE was designed by and for hoteliers to generate higher revenue, reduce operational costs and increase guest satisfaction. ICE software does this by monitoring guest requests in an easy-to-read format which allows hotel management to identify strengths and weaknesses and streamline services. As a result, hotels are reporting a dramatic increase in areas such as in-room dining checks; hotel restaurant reservations; guest service efficiency; activities revenues; and direct marketing revenue. 

ICE - Choose What Will Serve You Best
ICE technology for hotels is available in five different versions. These include ICE Touch (on in-room touch screens and iPads); ICE Mobile (on smartphones); ICE TV (on in-room TV’s); ICE Lobby (on touch screens) and ICE Connect (on laptops). No matter which version(s) a hotel chooses, ICE is custom branded and designed with the hotel’s guest service content.
 
Intelity – On the Fast Track
Having only opened its doors in 2007, Intelity is expanding at a fast pace. The hotel service technology leader has already grown from 3 to 30 employees and doubled its office space in September 2010. With this type of growth it is clear that the company is fulfilling a real need and providing solutions to the hospitality industry’s present-day challenges. Intelity’s ICE technology will serve over 500,000 guest rooms throughout North America, Caribbean and Latin America by mid 2011.
 
Despite being a fairly young company, Intelity has already begun to make its mark with hospitality and technology industry leaders.
