Guest-Tek Ltd., a leader in delivering broadband Internet access for mobile users in North America, is expanding into the European hospitality market by partnering with Locatel, the leading French supplier of audiovisual and interactive screen-based services to the European hospitality and healthcare markets.
“From the beginning, we recognized that Locatel would be the ideal partner for us. They share our philosophy of delivering high-quality solutions and providing excellent customer service,” says Guest-Tek CEO Paul Sullivan.
Sullivan adds that Locatel has an extensive customer base in Europe, which will be a tremendous advantage as the two companies target the vast European hospitality market. Locatel customers include such prominent names as ACCOR, Sheraton Group, Radisson, and Holiday Inn. Locatel`s interactive entertainment and audiovisual technologies have been installed in 182,000 guest rooms in France alone.
Guillaume Deguerry, export sales manager at Locatel, says Guest-Tek`s success in North America demonstrates the company has a reliable, proven product to offer European hoteliers. “Guest-Tek has a 97% success rate for connecting guests, which is the highest in the North American hospitality industry.” Deguerry says Guest-Tek also has a strong customer base, and was recently selected as the preferred provider of in-room high-speed Internet access for Hyatt Hotels Corporation in North America.
Guest-Tek and Locatel are demonstrating GlobalSuite? 3, Guest-Tek`s high-speed Internet access software for the hospitality industry, at Equip` Hotel 2001 this week in Paris-Nord Villepinte (Booth 5M168).
