Evolve Controls, a wireless, cloud-based room control and management solutions provider, announced that it will launch the "Evolve Guest Interface (eGI)", the world's newest innovation in guest-facing technology, on June 18 at HITEC Houston.

During the event, attendees will learn about eGI – a Windows/Intel-based gateway device that includes a simple and intuitive touch-screen user interface, allowing guests to control in-room climate, lighting, shading and drapery, as well as other functions to increase efficiencies for both guests and staff.

"Our customers have been asking for a sleeker design and less devices, and we've responded with the world's first gateway computer with a modern touch-screen interface, placing the power in the guests' hands," said CEO of Evolve Controls, Kristin Miller. "We strive to provide our customers the best possible experience for their guests. eGI is a breakthrough in addressing the rising demand for innovative technology, including must-haves for future-proof application integration."

According to TopHotelNews, to effectively compete in the luxury hotel market, experts say hotels must focus on providing unique customer experiences to cater to tech-savvy travelers.

The eGI addresses this need.

According to Peg McGregor, CEO of Technovation Solutions — an innovation center focused on customer experience in hospitality, "Guests want the same smart technology they use at home — in their hotel rooms. Hotels want minimalistic design, ease of use, installation and maintenance. The eGI is a game changer for both worlds, enabling the guest to operate room controls with the touch of a button, while providing the hotel with a seamless implementation, minimalist design, security, and the ability to incorporate branding elements and future applications."

Launching soon, the eGI innovation will provide hotels the appeal of:

  • Minimalist Design:
    There's more than meets the eye. Sleekness aside, eGI takes advantage of the concept of minimalist design by consolidating devices at an unprecedented level in terms of typical room controls solutions.
  • Advanced Security:
    State-of-the-art security measures, including Over-the-Air (OTA) seamless security updates protect and respect guests' privacy.
  • Enhanced Guest Experience:
    An improved guest experience offering a thoughtful application of high tech and hotel customization with branding and room configurations.
  • Increased Operational Efficiency:
    Increased operational efficiency with the only wireless, cloud-based offering in room controls technology.

The result is a cleaner, sleeker, high-tech addition for hotel guest rooms.

A completely wireless in-room system is ideal for hotel property renovations, system upgrades, and new construction. With less devices, customers save. The eGI is available in table-top and wall mounted options, based on a hotel's design requirements.
