Generation Flight Stats for Hotel Travelers
Nashville, TN – February 18, 2009. Nashville-based Uniguest™ and Ohio-based Com-Net Software announced today a strategic alliance that will provide hotel travelers with next generation flight stats.
“Having quick, real-time flight departure information can save hotel guests from missing flights and being stuck at the airport for hours,” said Shawn Thomas, CEO of Uniguest™. “We sought the most accurate data available to integrate into our line of information/Internet kiosks and Com-Net was the easy choice as the recognized leader in their field.”
Real-time flight information is one of many requested amenities from hotel guests, especially for airport hotels. “Providing guests with real-time departure information can mean the possibility of additional room nights sold or increased food and beverage revenues”, said Troy Carver, Assistant General Manager of The Nashville Airport Marriott. “In today’s economy, most hotelier’s budgets cannot support purchasing stand-alone flight displays that can cost as much as $3,500 upfront and fees of $300 or more per month from most suppliers. That is where Uniguest’s Concierge Station™ brings value and a lower total cost of ownership”, Troy continues.
“We created a custom application that can feed real-time flight data directly into Uniguest’s Concierge Station™, eliminating the need for hoteliers to purchase additional equipment,” states Chance Fultz, Com-Net Senior VP Sales/Marketing. “Com-Net provides information display systems for airports, airlines and mass transit in the US and (other places). It was a natural fit for us to provide Uniguest™ with this data in a way that increases value for Uniguest’s customers and minimizes total cost of ownership.”
The Concierge Station™ by Uniguest™ is a powerful Internet kiosk that provides industry-standard business center applications, Internet access, printing, customized local information for restaurants and attractions, and now, real-time flight information powered by Com-Net.
Hoteliers seeking to reduce operating expenses are turning to Uniguest’s Concierge Station™ to meet their business center or LobbyPC needs as well as provide their guests with needed local information and real-time flight data all in one application.
