Intelity Continues Strong Growth Trajectory with New Customers in 2017

Millennial travel is contributing to the demand for Intelity’s technologies
[Orlando, Fla. – October 24, 2017] —Intelity, the creator of the world’s first and most widely used integrated Guest Services Platform, is announcing continued record-setting performance and growth, deploying its solutions at properties that include hotels, resorts and casinos throughout North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia.
“There are several factors contributing to the continued growth and success of Intelity, the main one being our commitment to ongoing research and development of new technologies,” said David Adelson, Intelity president and CEO. “We listen closely to our customers to ensure that our solutions are meeting their needs and the demands of their guests. Millennials are a huge segment of travelers, and are having a major impact on the hotel industry – especially when it comes to technology adoption.
“One of the biggest challenges in selling to Millennials is communication,” Adelson said. “Each person in this demographic seems to have his or her own preferred way of communicating and receiving information from a hotel; some prefer email, others text messages, and still others phone calls. Intelity’s mobile solutions are helping travelers overcome limitations of the Internet, and they are supporting this do-it-yourself generation throughout their stays, from enabling guests to control the room environment (thermostat, lighting, drapes) via in-room tablets to unlocking their rooms doors via smartphone.”
Studies Shows Technology is King
According to the 4th edition Egencia Business Travel and Technology Survey (2017), travelers are looking to technology to make the corporate travel journey more productive and manageable. The report shows 66 percent of business travelers want to manage their business travel on every mobile device, not just on their smartphone. Additionally, 50 percent of global respondents would avoid human interaction on the road unless they are having a problem, and 56 percent of global respondents simply want access to business travel tools to do more on mobile in general.
In its 2017 Portrait of American Travelers survey, MMGY Global reports that Millennial families – who rely on mobile technology for a DIY travel experience – are going to spend more and travel more in 2018 than all other generational segments. The study predicts that the 9.5 million households that are American Millennial families will spend 19 percent more on vacations during the next 12 months and intend to travel 35 percent more than the previous year. To support the demands of this demographic, hotels need to invest in the technologies their Millennial guests expect to use during their stays.
According to Hospitality Technology's 2017 Customer Engagement Technology Study, 57 percent of hotel guests are expecting/demanding mobile check out (but only 24 percent of hotels provide it), 55 percent are expecting/demanding mobile check in (but its only available at 35 percent of hotels), 54 percent of guests want to control the guestroom from a mobile device, and 45 percent of guests are expecting/demanding a mobile key be sent to their smartphones so they can bypass long lines at the front desk.
