The New York Helmsley, a Starwood Hotel, Provides Real-time
Flight Information for Hotel Guests

New York, NY - July 27, 2011
— TTI Technologies, the hospitality industry’s leading provider of ID / Driver’s License / Passport Scanners, Business Centers, Concierge Services and other hotel solutions, was selected by The New York Helmsley to implement the microFIDS Flight Information Display System.
Through a partnership with ARINC Incorporated, TTI Technologies is now making the microFIDS system available to the hospitality industry as a turnkey solution, enabling hoteliers to provide convenient in-hotel flight information to guests without additional IT or maintenance burdens.
The microFIDS system provides up-to-the-minute flight information in display formats that can easily be placed in hotel business centers and other common areas.  For a customer service-centric brand such as The Helmsley Park Lane New York Hotel, microFIDS offers guests not only convenience, but the comfort of waiting out any flight delays, or spending additional nights in the luxury of the hotel rather than at the airport.
“The microFIDS system and the other solutions we rely on TTI Technologies to provide, offer our guests the ability to make informed decisions, access business services and enjoy a higher level of guest satisfaction while they visit our property, said Maurizio Bonivento, General Manager at The New York Helmsley Hotel,. “We cater to luxury travelers, and having this information at the hotel will let them relax and stay with us rather than waiting for a delayed flight at LaGuardia, JFK or Newark.”
The microFIDS displays are available in a variety of sizes and in sleek, professional looking design—a priority for luxury hotels such as The New York Helmsley Hotel. The displays can also be branded for the individual hotel, and configured to display promotions for in-hotel services or third-party advertising.
“We continue to develop and partner when it makes sense to deliver new and innovative technology for our clients.  We are excited about the microFIDS solution and thrilled that The New York Helmsley Hotel will be using this technology,” said Steve Blidner, President at TTI Technologies. “microFIDS rounds out our business center and scanning solutions,, making for an incredibly flexible system that can be deployed in a variety of ways—from a full-service boarding pass scanning kiosk in the hotel business center, to a discreet iPad at the front desk. We believe this solution has something to offer a wide range of lodging providers.”
