Direct connection provides simple, secure in-room casting solution for hotels, improving guest satisfaction
Calgary, AB – December 03, 2019 – WebRezPro property management system (PMS) by World Web Technologies Inc. (WWT) now interfaces with i-Hotel Casting Solution by Intello Technologies, a hospitality technology provider specializing in wired and wireless secured internet access solutions for the lodging industry. The direct connection enables hotels to provide guests with a secure, easy-to-use solution for casting content from their mobile devices to guestroom TVs for an improved guest experience.
Using Google Chromecast, and leveraging Intello’s i-Hotel gateway and compatible wireless network, the simple and secure casting solution works with iOS, Android, Windows and MacOS, and doesn’t require any additional hardware other than a casting device such as Chromecast and a TV with available HDMI inputs.
“Guests will be delighted to find that our casting solution is the same experience they’d find in their own homes.”
— Samuel Schmidt, Intello CEO
Samuel Schmidt, CEO for Intello, highlights that “with streaming services now playing an integral part in guests’ habits, it was important that our solution combined both ease of use and personal privacy. Intello’s casting solution allows guests to cast all their preferred content without needing to input their credentials elsewhere than on their personal devices; all their personal info stays right in the palm of their hands. Guests will be delighted to find that our casting solution is the same experience they’d find in their own homes.”
Travelers expect the comforts and conveniences of home in their hotel room. Casting provides a convenient way for guests to continue to enjoy their preferred content while they travel, just as they do at home, boosting guest satisfaction. Using their own devices, guests can play content from apps such as Netflix, YouTube, Spotify, etc. on the guestroom TV.
Integration with the PMS supports system security and streamlines administration by automating guest authentication and billing. When a guest checks in, WebRezPro sends applicable reservation data to the i-Hotel system, ensuring only checked-in guests can connect and preventing casting to the wrong room.
“The way we consume content has changed and it’s imperative hotels keep up with the expectations of today’s guests,” commented Frank Verhagen, President at WWT. “The interface between WebRezPro and Intello’s i-Hotel casting solution makes elevating the in-room guest experience seamless and easy for hotels.”
