StayNTouch Inc., provider of the PMS Mobile Overlay Platform, is pleased to announce the implementation of their solutions at the YOTEL New York.

Innovative, affordable luxury hotels such as the YOTEL New York are integrating mobile devices into the everyday

operations of their business. The result? Increased upsell revenues, increased customer service and a more connected experience for guests. This 669 "Cabin" Times Square hotel began the implementation of the StayNTouch's solutions with both Rover Front Office and Zest Web. Staff can now assist guests away from the front desk (Mission Control) using tablets or smartphones. Guests are invited to check out via their smartphone through a simple mobile web experience, fully integrated with the hotel's current PMS. In addition guests are offered the opportunity to stay a little longer through dynamic "late check out offers".

"We implemented StayNTouch to build upon our ongoing digital strategy to find the right balance between

technology, efficiency and service with focus on enhancing our guest's experience and giving them more options and control at their fingertips". The StayNTouch Platform will be a game changer," said Claes Landberg/General Manager at the YOTEL New York. "We expect that we will see more than 20% of our eligible guests opt to check out via their smartphone and that will grow significantly".

"We're very proud to have YOTEL New York as a partner. YOTEL's vision of embedding technology on all guest service

touch points is very much in line with our product strategy, enabling hotels to offer the choice of mobile or staff assist check-in and out services" said Jos Schaap, CEO and Founder at StayNTouch.

Industry veterans Jos Schaap and Tim Kinsella co-founded StayNTouch Inc. in 2012.
