INNCOM Teams with Best of Breed Providers to Enhance In-Room Automation Services
Company’s Integrated Room Automation System ties energy-management services to IP-telephones and in-room entertainment systems for greater efficiency, satisfaction
“INNCOM has developed a system that bundles together all in-room systems for better energy efficiency and an enhanced guest experience,” said John Tavares, vice president of marketing and sales for INNCOM. “In addition to our popular tabletop units for guestroom controls, INNCOM provides a seamless user interface to VoIP compatible telephones and Internet-based entertainment systems via television remote controls that allows the guest to control all INNCOM guestroom devices.
“Whether the telephone is from Nortel (with Citrix middlewear), Teledex (with FCS Computer Systems middlewear), Cisco, Avaya, Percipia, or Nevotek [in development], guests can access weather, restaurant listings, movies and entertainment channels and more with one touch on the guestroom phone,” he added. “At the same time, the phone provides the ultimate in guestroom controls by allowing guests to turn off and on lights, raise and lower temperature, control fan functions, indicate privacy and make-up-room requests, even open and close drapes.”
Tuned into TV
Working with third-party providers gives INNCOM the ability to provide in-room control of room systems and property-wide energy management, Tavares said. Using the INNCOM USB to wireless antenna, hotels can more easily retrofit rooms and save on labor and construction costs.
Guests also can use the system while not having to sacrifice viewing time of a given TV program or in-room movie. A simple bar flashes at the bottom of the TV screen. And guests can keep watching the TV as they make changes for guestroom comfort and convenience. Best yet, guests also put the guestroom into INNCOM’s energy ‘economy mode’ to save costs.
“We are proud to be the global leader in guestroom automation systems for the global lodging industry, with proven product, applications and technologies,” said Rick Quirino, INNCOM President. “The characteristics that make us unique in this domain include patented wireless technology, seamless integration of telecommunications and control functions, advanced multi-tasking software and easy-to-use human interfaces. We believe that our new solutions with several of the industry’s best-of-breed technology providers will further reinforce our respective capabilities, delight our customers, and leverage our marketing efforts.”
