ADB Cites Three Features of In-Room Entertainment Every Hotel Should Budget for in 2018
October 31, 2017 12:42pm
October 31, 2017 – Geneva, Switzerland. – Today’s in-room entertainment technologies have evolved beyond providing pay-per-view movies in guestrooms. It now encompasses everything from live TV, video on demand, pay per view, and searchable interactive program guides, to pausing, rewinding, fast-forwarding live TV and streaming content from guests’ mobile devices to the TV. ADB, a company delivering advanced TV solutions for hotels across cable, satellite, and IPTV for more than 20 years, has identified the top three features every hotelier should request from their IRE provider in 2018 to meet their operational needs and guests demands.
“Times are changing, and hoteliers are finding that they can use the IRE system to do much more than provide guests with television programming,” said Chris Dinallo, CTO & General Manager of ADB vuTyme Business Unit. “Research shows a big chunk of hotels’ IT spending next year will be used towards improving digital customer engagement. As guests become more accustomed to accessing information when and where they want it, hotels must invest in technologies that meet those demands. Only then will the guest experience truly be enhanced and appreciated.”
Consider these findings:
“Hoteliers need to understand that interactive TV content – or lack thereof – has a direct impact on guest satisfaction and loyalty,” Dinallo said. “If hotels are not offering the level of in-room entertainment services that guests want – especially Millennials – they will go elsewhere.”
Here are three features that every IRE provider should offer in 2018 and beyond:
“Hoteliers with limited budgets, yet who are looking to offer the tools that today’s travelers demand, can turn to ADB and vuTyme,” Dinallo said. “Our solutions are low cost and easy to deploy via your local cable provider. Better yet, they meet the very specific demands of today’s discerning travelers – especially Millennials.”
vuTyme is offered as a managed service to hotels using the global cloud infrastructure or cable company central office. ADB offers 24/7 monitoring to ensure reliability and delivery of service. vuTyme requires no capital expenditure and hotel head-end equipment – just a compact set-back box discretely mounted behind the TV.
