Sillks International Hotel Group has joined forces with hospitality technology firm Intelity to build a brand-level enterprise mobile solution for use at all of its global properties on personal mobile devices and made the company a brand standard for all its guest services technology. Intelity will custom build the mobile solution using its ICE (Interactive Customer Experience) platform that guests can use to view general information about or book reservations at each individual property. Each property will be able to offer a full menu of guest services through the app, including ordering in-room dining and viewing menus, making housekeeping requests, scheduling transportation, and receiving information about hotel activities. They can also make reservations at onsite facilities such as restaurants and spas. The app will be made available for use at all of the brand’s properties over the next three years, with plans to roll out a custom guest services technology package at each new hotel the brand brings on board. It will enable the brand to interact with guests before, during and after their stay, as well as target guests with direct brand messaging and marketing. “I knew from the moment I was introduced to Intelity’s ICE that it was a perfect solution and match for our brands and aspirations to become a world leader in the adoption of digital solutions,” said Julia Neale, VP Director of Digital Technologies and Strategic IT for Sillks International Hotel Group. “It offers us the perfect platform to manage and exceed our guests’ expectations with a memorable digital experience and seamlessly extend our brands into the digital arena whilst streamlining our business processes and helping to manage our resources incredibly efficiently. On top of this, Intelity exhibits a level of professionalism and expertise that is unmatched in their space.” Intelity President and CEO David Adelson said, “We are very enthusiastic to establish this relationship with Sillks International Hotel Group and add their portfolio to the growing list of international properties that are choosing Intelity to assist them with ensuring that their guests can enjoy a unique, flawless mobile experience. We look forward to exploring options for further enhancing in-room technology at their various properties as the brand continues to expand in the future.” James Fothergill, Intelity EMEA Sales Director, said, “Sillks International is one of the most exciting new brands I have seen enter the hospitality market. This is a perfect partnership for both the brand and for Intelity, and we are excited about developing this application for their new hotels and resorts as they come online. It’s a competitive touch that is now indispensable with the widespread use of mobile technology.”
