Free business seminars to inspire your successAdvertorialFeatureDespite the challenging economic conditions hotel technology continues to evolve at a rapid pace. Hotel IT professionals are demanding that their technology not only solves business problems, but delivers real business value, and at the same time they are looking to benefit from converging and integrating multiple technologies. Marc Budie, technology director at Quadriga explains the driving forces behind these changes and how the company is working with hotels to meet these needs.Connectivity, integration and IPTV The need for hotels to provide a robust and reliable internet connection for both guests and walk-in customers is critical, especially as it is a key determinant of guest satisfaction. With an ever-increasing demand for bandwidth hotels need a flexible internet service. Our investment in this area has resulted in a flexible solution that includes tiered bandwidth services, enabling hoteliers to provide differentiated internet access based on different bandwidth speeds and time, with commercial viability as well as the ability to support multiple hardware vendors. The convergence of services over a single network is a growing requirement as hotels seek to run multiple services and applications over one network to .drive business efficiency, by optimising existing solutions and minimising costs. As the whole of Europe gradually moves to full digital TV, customers increasingly seek advice on how to navigate through the myriad of channel selections and encryption requirements - driven by the need to provide their guests with a home-from-home TV channel choice combined with a superb digital quality TV experience. At Quadriga we specialise in seamlessly integrating all of these technologies; internet, network requirements and IPTV, into our Sensiq and Genesis solutions. With over 120,000 guest rooms across Europe providing wired and Wifi solutions over coax and cat 5/6/7 networks, IPTV installed in multiple hotels across Europe and network consultancy and advice core to our offer, Quadriga responds consistently to hotels' evolving requirements in these areas. Specific competencies include: . Multiple network support including coax, cat 2/3/5/6/7 and fibre - and consultancy related to network convergence and optimisation. Supporting multiple network environments. Advising on network standards and security issues. Providing robust and flexible internet solutions to meet evolving connectivity requirements. Designing appropriate IPTV solutions to meet the needs of different guest profiles. Maintaining and supporting TV equipment guest communications Layered on top of this, Quadriga's guest communications platform, Sensiq, opens up valuable commercial opportunities for hotels, where a hotel can create its own unique information and entertainment portal. They can also use the TV to promote and drive sales of hotel facilities and services, drive additional business value through increased brand awareness and loyalty as well as drive down costs. Customers have access to a whole host of tools, such as dedicated prime spot menu options, promotional tickers, advertising pages and multimedia opportunities, to personalise the solution to reflect their individual needs.Quadriga, your trusted partner We work in partnership with our customers to provide a single solution from one source providing everything from network design, internet connectivity, IPTV and the provision of a fully customised guest communications solution via the TV and laptop.
