With the acquisition, Uniguest expects to immediately add five full-time employees. It also brings Uniguest’s client list to over 2,500 customers and 4,000 self-serve kiosks under management. In fact, odds are that most travelers have used a self-service kiosk managed by Uniguest while staying in any major hotel brand throughout the U.S.
“DDD has been a successful niche digital signage company specializing in solutions for restaurants in the Nashville area,” states Jeff Pennington, Uniguest’s new Director of Business Development – Interactive Signage. “As we looked to expand nationally, our immediate thought was to partner with someone. That is where we found a perfect fit with Uniguest. Uniguest’s national presence in the hospitality industry is already there. By adding our product line it helps both our customers by them being able to turn to one company to add value to their business.”
