Wayport Distributes Wireless Voice Communications Systems

Wayport and Vocera Communications have entered into a reseller agreement to distribute and support the Vocera Communications System on Wayport’s Wi-Fi networks at hotels and other locations.
The Vocera solution enables in-building mobile workers to instantly communicate with one another through a combination of the Vocera Communications Software and the wearable Vocera Communications Badge which operates on Wi-Fi networks such as Wayport’s. Using basic voice commands, the System instantly connects staff to the resources they need, so they can get information, make decisions, and act quickly.

“Wayport continues to expand support for mission critical applications and technology on our network that greatly benefit our venue partners and their customers by increasing productivity and at the same time reducing costs of both voice and data communications,” said Dave Vucina, CEO of Wayport. “Vocera’s voice communication system is a great fit to run on Wayport’s distributed enterprise network and there is strong interest in a solution like this from many of our venue partners.”

Wayport will promote and support the Vocera solution in both existing and prospective Wayport hotel properties and other select venues. The combined solution will provide hotels with the ability to be always connected to key staff members including the front desk, concierge, facilities, housekeeping, health club, dining and other hotel groups cost-effectively.

“Hospitality organizations are looking for ways to improve communication in an effort to enrich guest experiences,” said Brent Lang, vice president of marketing, of Vocera Communications. “By teaming with Wayport, we are in a position to deliver to hotel and retail customers Vocera’s streamlined communication solution that leverages Wayport’s Wi-Fi infrastructure to increase staff productivity and ultimately improve guest satisfaction.”
