Leading hospitality industry kiosk supplier prepares for rapid growth as it brings revolutionary new check-in/check-out technologies to market
Ariane Systems, the worldwide leader in self-service check-in / check-out kiosk technology for the hospitality industry, today announced the selection of Plan A Public Relations & Marketing, Inc. to manage their global marketing and communications initiatives. Plan A will be responsible for increasing exposure and building brand recognition for Ariane Systems, as the company prepares to launch new technologies that are expected to spark a period of rapid growth and expansion. Since its inception in 1998, Ariane Systems has installed more than 1,600 self-service kiosks at hotel properties in 20 countries around the globe. Many of the world’s largest hotel groups currently utilize Ariane’s electronic kiosk solutions to streamline the check-in/out process, including Accor, B&B, Choice Hotels, Fasthotel, InterContinental Hotels Group, and Louvre Hotels (Starwood Capital), among others.
Cardot is already an established name in some hotel technology circles, having headed up the Hotel Technology Next Generation (HTNG) kiosk workgroup that led to the first standard release of a fully integrated PMS–kiosk interface. As a Micros-certified supplier, Ariane’s Allegro check-in / check-out kiosk solution was the first to integrate with many of the world’s most popular Property Management Systems, payment systems, locking system suppliers and other hotel technologies.
“Ariane Systems has over 12 years of experience in the international market, so they are familiar not only with the needs of hotels in various global regions, but also with local legal and regulatory requirements,” said Andrea Roland, president of Plan A PR & Marketing. “Their extensive knowledge, experience and resources position them well for global growth and expansion, and we are honored to have this opportunity to assist them in their continued success.”
Although the full details on Ariane’s new technologies have not been released, Cardot promises that the impact on the hotel industry will be substantial. “Let’s just say that we are taking guest communications and interaction to the next level,” he stated. “We plan to be a part of the next generation of travel, changing not only the way hotels conduct business, but also simplifying and streamlining the process for the traveler, making it efficient and once again, enjoyable.”For more information, please visit .
