VSi Offers Business Center Packages to Mirror
Brand’s Budget, Design and Standards Needs
Individual Hotels and Brands alike can now select from Silver, Gold, or Platinum Automated Business Center packages complete with hardware, software, HSIA and furnishings
SUNNYVALE, CALIF.— NOVEMBER 20, 2007 —  Vertical System inc. asks: “Does your automated Business Center provide your brand’s guest-service and guest-computing initiatives?” If not, VSi is taking the hassle out of business center implementation by introducing three simple, affordable, and pre-packaged solutions designed to exceed guest expectations, regardless of brand segmentation.

VSi’s Silver, Gold, or Platinum Business Centers address the growing needs of business travelers and mobile users while meeting the budget, design and standards needs for hotels of all sizes and brand affiliations. The Silver package mirrors the needs of Economy and Limited Service hotels; the Gold package meets the needs of hotels in the Full Service and Upscale sectors; and the Platinum package provides Large Convention Center Hotels and Luxury brands with the ultimate in solutions available today for automated, self-service business centers.

“Our new three-tier approach to providing automated business centers will make buying decisions much easier for general managers or whoever is assigned the confusing task of implementing this in-demand guest-service solution,” said Saeed Kazmi, VSi President. “Most hoteliers can’t afford the time to keep up with the rapidly changing technology needs of the traveling public – they just know they need to offer their guests reliable 24/7 computing services with remote support. VSi’s bundled packages make picking-and-choosing the right solution simple.”

Private, Professional, Proven Solutions

Vertical Systems inc. is committed to providing comprehensive and innovative guest-services solutions that meet or exceed hotel guests’ expectations. Each of the solutions in these packages feature user privacy and security, 24/7 guest access, and live customer support via toll-free telephone. This provides hotels with a competitive advantage and an opportunity to generate additional revenues while building customer loyalty.

“VSi is a leader in Automated Business Centers, with more than 1,000 installations in the United States, Canada, Mexico and nine in European countries,” Kazmi said. “While there are many suppliers who can provide hotels with a piece-meal solution—Internet kiosk or lobby PC only—VSi is the only partner which offers this three-tier, comprehensive and automated package approach, including PCs, laptops, printers, copiers, fax machines -- even furniture. Not only are our solutions effortless to operate, but we offer a unique business model in which all equipment is provided with no upfront cost or need for additional hotel staff. Our revenue-share model will instantly turn a business center into a profit center.”
