CUSTOMER SERVICE EXCELLENCE

Advance Unified Communications business and telephony features plus automated attendant and contact center services deliver exceptional customer service.

SIMPLIFIED EMPLOYEE EXPERIENCE

OpenTouch Hospitality Cloud lets employees easily connect to and exchange rich, context-based information without compromising security or quality - from any place and through any device. They can retrieve personal and professional features on the devices they choose, or shift between devices to adapt to the context of a conversation, delivering a superior customer experience.

REDUCED UPFRONT COSTS

OpenTouch Hospitality Cloud reduces up-front costs for a lean approach:
Hotels can take advantage of flexible licensing models based on occupancy rates paying only for rooms actually occupied on a monthly basis. They can also accelerate technology adoption and new services deployment while cutting deployment costs. Maintenance and upgrade costs are transformed into predictable OPEX via monthly fees.

RELIABILITY AND SECURITY

Expert hosting is handled externally in secure conditions that include physical security, power and cooling for the servers. Redundancies are in place making service interruptions a thing of the past. All maintenance costs are included in the monthly hosting fees. Enjoy a simple and effective solution that delivers optimal returns across multiple hotels:
The hotel solution is always running the latest software release and benefits from the latest security updates.

BUSINESS AGILITY

OpenTouch Hospitality Cloud can adjust on the fly to meet the needs of any hotel. New capabilities, or increased capacity, can be added in the network without requiring minimum or additional hardware to be installed on site. The capacity can also be decreased any time, following business changes and dynamics, without additional cost or penalties. It is a true pay-as-you-go solution that also offers a flexible subscription.
