Intelity, designated as the Official Forbes Travel Guide Mobile and In-Room Technology, was named a 2018 TechOvation Award Semi-Finalist by Hospitality Technology Next Generation (HTNG) this week. The award program recognizes companies for innovative products new to the marketplace from 2017 or coming in 2018. Intelity is one of 10 semi-finalists vying for this top honor. Intelity’s Voice Request video submission was ranked among the Top 3 “Most Liked” by the public. Semi-finalists will present their products at HT-NEXT on March 14. A judging panel will select three finalists, and the audience will then vote for the 2018 TechOvation Award Winner.

Intelity Voice Request enhances the in-room experience. Utilizing Amazon’s Alexa, hotel guests can talk to their room with voice-activated commands. Intelity Voice Request acts as a virtual concierge, allowing guests to make requests, adjust room controls and more all with just a few simple voice commands. Voice Request also extends the power of voice command to the conference space. Meeting planners can conduct business with a constant connection to their staff through the tool. Voice Request examples in the meetings environment include: “Tell the hotel that we would like more coffee,” “Tell the hotel that we would like more water,” or “Tell the hotel that we need more chairs.”

“We are thrilled that the Intelity Voice Request video is so popular with viewers on HTNG’s YouTube channel,” said Gregg Hopkins, Intelity chief sales and marketing officer. “This tool is changing the way today’s hotel guests interact with their rooms and meeting planners are interacting with event spaces. Since we launched the product in mid-December, everyone we talk to is loving the customization of Voice Request. It uses any phrase or command the hotel desires to let guests request services, set alarms, select music, get weather information, inquire about flights and more. With Voice Request delivering a fun and easy way to connect with guests and heighten guest service, we feel it’s a shoo-in to win the 2018 TechOvation Award. We look forward to presenting Voice Request to HT-NEXT attendees and its distinguished judging panel next month.”
