EventBoard Provides Guests with a Convenient Single Point of Information for Property Way-finding, Meeting Schedules and Rooms, VIP Greeting, and Real-Time Airport Flight Information

CHICAGO, IL - December 17, 2013 -  Flyte Systems, the leading provider of airport travel information displays and digital signage content for the hospitality industry, convention centers and related businesses, announced the installation of its newest EventBoard service at the Houston Marriott South at Hobby Airport. The property is operated by John Q. Hammons Hotels & Resorts.  Click here to request information on Flyte Systems' airport travel and guest information services.

EventBoard is economical, cloud-based, easy to use

"I was pleased to see Flyte Systems' EventBoard launch announcement," said Roger R. Radtke, general manager of the Houston Marriott South at Hobby Airport. "We were looking for this type of system. Many of the vendors we investigated had heavy up front capital costs. Flyte Systems offered an economical cloud-based alternative that provides the same service. It was the best business decision for our hotel." Flyte Systems is the only full service flight display solution that provides real-time departure information.

The Flyte Systems' EventBoard is made up of multiple wall mounted flat-panel LCDs throughout the hotel. The screens use attractive property graphics to display event information, meeting room location and way-finding maps over HDMI video extenders. Property staff can pre-plan and enter events for display through Flyte Systems' browser-based EventBoard web portal and content is automatically updated on all EventBoard displays. EventBoard is scalable for any size property or event venue. The system can be expanded to include individual meeting room displays and hotel maps to further enhance the customer facing experience.

"Flyte Systems made it simple to deploy EventBoard and the graphics they produced are very professional," said Radtke. "The displays blend in well and complement our property motif. Not only does EventBoard save our staff time, it provides a valuable way-finding service to our guests."
