A single source for Guest Engagement and the Network that powers it, increasing guest satisfaction and growing hotel revenue – See it at HITEC booth 1029

CHICAGO (June 21, 2017) — Cloud5 Communications, hospitality’s #1 communications technology and services platform, is partnering with Volara to offer WiFi powered voice-based guest engagement for hotels and resorts. The partnership is a natural extension of Cloud5’s holistic hospitality communications platform designed to deliver an exceptional stay experience for today’s always-on hotel guests. Cloud5 will be showcasing Volara in booth 1029 at HITEC 2017 in Toronto next week. To schedule an appointment, click here.

Automated guest engagement is disrupting guest services, demanding hotels and management companies to rethink how they connect with and serve clients on the guests’ medium of choice. 

“Cloud5 provides the backbone of the hotel engagement infrastructure,” said David Berger, CEO for Volara. “Together, Volara and Cloud5 provide a streamlined solution for hotels to service guests and build loyalty.”

Imagine the convenience and cost savings of handling guest requests, inquiries and greetings automatically on the prompt of your guest’s voice. Volara provides device agnostic guest engagement software running on hardware like the Amazon Echo that is fully customized to each property. For guests who want immediate answers simply without calling into the front desk, Volara offers a quick and frictionless guest-aware solution. 

Service applications include:

  • Personal greetings from the hotel general manager or host of an event
  • Curated recommendations directly from the hotel concierge
  • Requests routed directly to the appropriate member of hotel staff
  • In-Room controls powered by voice

  • JW Marriott, San Antonio, TX
  • Hotel EMC2 by Marriott, Chicago, IL
  • TheWit Hotel by Hilton Doubletree, Chicago, IL
