FlyteBoard digital signage and hotel flight information make life easier for business travelers

“Most of our guests are experienced business travelers and our goal is to provide services that make their trip easier. Our new FlyteBoard with KCI Expo Center events and airline information will save them time,” said Irma Causevic, Director of Sales and Marketing at the Holiday Inn KCI Expo Center. “With FlyteBoard our guests will not have to open their tablets or handhelds to check flights or events. Hospitality is about offering service to travelers. This is why we are here.”

The modern 141-room Holiday Inn is directly connected to the KCI Expo Center, one of Kansas City’s premier meeting and event facilities. The property is near Kansas City International airport and is undergoing a multi-million dollar renovation that includes its newest outlet, Burger Theory. A chic hamburger experience that features local craft beers and a fun outdoor patio area for relaxed dining.

“Flyte Systems worked with the Holiday Inn KCI to develop a display that delivers a spectrum of visual information its guests will value,” said Scott Triphahn, Flyte Systems vice president. “”We smooth the travel experience for people on the go. In addition to hotel flight information and events for the KCI Expo Center and the hotel, we will display an inset box for Burger Theory specials that will drive business – and incidental revenue – to the property’s bottom line. FlyteBoard will combine all the important information on one screen for maximum cost effectiveness.”
