iRiS Software Systems to Unveil Strategy with Suite of
New Applications at HITEC 2013

June 4, 2013
- iRiS Software Systems, the specialist hospitality software applications developer whose hotel guest services applications include the award-winning iRiS Valet and its hugely successful F&B application, is set to reveal their new vision and strategy as well as a number of exciting new applications previously unseen and unspoken of, at HITEC 2013 in Minneapolis.
iRiS recently launched their Lobby application following a surge in demand from hotels already working with the iRiS Valet application. Interactive, multi-lingual and intuitive are key to its success, and it has been designed to work on any size screen. iRiS will have a giant 40” interactive version displayed on their stand at HITEC and this is sure to capture the imagination of any hotelier. The impressive functionality offers hidden secrets to be revealed only to hoteliers who visit the stand.  
iRiS will be giving away a free iRiS Lobby application plus giant 40” touchscreen kiosk with tailored content to one lucky hotelier attending the show to display in their hotel.  
Since HITEC 2012, iRiS has commenced working with more major brands including Marriott, Ritz Carlton, Renaissance, Starwood, amongst others as well as a number of independent hotels across the globe including The Houstonian in Texas, USA. Key to iRiS Software Systems’ rapid success has been their focus on interactive, intuitive apps combined with their integration into third party systems.
“Seamless integration into PMS and POS is crucial to the hotels we work with, and we have expanded that quickly into other systems such as Room Management, Services Optimization, Music, IPTV and more” commented Jason Jefferys, CEO of iRiS.
Through the Palais Hansen Kempinski Vienna, iRiS has helped the hotel to be probably the most technologically advanced in the world. iRiS’ award-winning Guest Valet and Mobile Valet are being used, with integration into the IPTV supplied by Quadriga and the room management system to control lighting, temperature and more. In addition, the hotel is using iRiS F&B for their wine and drinks lists, turning them digital and removing paper and associated costs. The hotel has also adopted iRiS’ Lobby app and the recently launched iRiS Spa app.
With all iRiS’ apps being controlled by iRiS Manager, the central content, communications and language management system, ease of use has been taken into account for hotels. Updates can be done on the fly as can language management too, essential selling tools for the hotel.
During the HITEC show, iRiS will be presenting their full suite of applications to hoteliers who have pre-arranged meetings. This includes revealing their strategy and unveiling a selection of new apps that are being worked on. To arrange a meeting, the developer has set up an email contact: – this allows hoteliers to gain a full insight to both the guest facing side and iRiS Manager.
