Keeping Guests Happy and Coming Back — With Better Wireless

Wireless is no longer just another amenity at hotels. It’s become a prerequisite for doing business. Hotels aiming to increase Revenues Per Available Room (RevPAR) and maximize profitability are jumping on the wireless bandwagon, as:

  • Wireless point of sale (PoS) systems can allow staff to take orders for foods and other amenities at poolside and around the property
  • Wireless voice communications between hotel employees can help keep everything running smoothly
  • Handheld devices can be used to check-in guests at valet
  • Hotels can offer WiFi in guest rooms and common areas for free, or bundled in a communications package
  • Guests can use WiFi for their high definition audio and video devices, such as iPods
