SHR Offers Sneak Peek of WAYV, a New Location Services App, at HITEC 2014
June 24, 2014 6:48am
"By having access to guest locations, you as a hotelier can offer a better overall hotel experience for each of your guests, while increasing revenue for your hotel. You can offer a more efficient check-in and check-out process, as well as easily promote room upgrades, restaurant specials, or spa services, among other things," says Jim Whitney, SVP of Innovation for SHR. "WAYV is redefining the guest experience in a way that no other hospitality application has."
With the guest's permission, WAYV will know when the guest arrives at key locations defined by the hotel. These "place events" will trigger notifications on the guest's phone, offering remote automatic check-in or check-out, upgrades, and other offers. Using geofencing and iBeacon technology, the hotel can define and configure these locations and offerings. Geofencing allows the hotel to define larger regions on a map and iBeacons are small, physical devices that emit a blue tooth signal that can be detected by WAYV. When a guest enters a geofence, or passes by an iBeacon, the notification set for that "place event" is triggered.
For more information, contact SHR at email@example.com or stop by HITEC booth #549 at 2 pm on Wednesday, June 25 for an exclusive sneak peek of this innovative application.
