That’s why the imagery you choose should be as strategic as the written message behind it.

Hospitality is a customer-focused industry, with a hotel brand’s reputation and ultimate success dependent on the quality of the experience of its guests. It is no surprise then, that digital transformation efforts within the hospitality sector are focused on technologies that improve the guest experience, from check-in to check-out and everything in between.

They expect a high-quality connection throughout the property and the ability to perform certain tasks from the hotel’s app, such as checking in and choosing their own room. They expect in-room entertainment beyond basic cable and in-room digital devices they can use to order food, book a massage or control the lighting, for example.
When evaluating the pros and cons of DSL and cable modem Internet access, enterprises should factor speed, cost, installation, consistency and security into the decision-making process. While the right access choice is a function of location, availability and service offerings, DSL is often the better option for remote workers, satellite offices and traveling employees.
For today’s businesses, fast Internet access is more than a competitive advantage. It is an operational necessity. Changes in the way companies are working – and the tools they are using – have created the need for high-speed connections to services and individuals off-site. Across the country, in-house servers are rapidly being replaced by cloud-based infrastructure. Videoconferencing is helping businesses cut travel costs. Mobile devices – with easy links to work-related content – are enabling more employees to be more productive, from any location. All of these applications have one factor in common: they require bandwidth. And plenty of it. Download this white paper to learn more about high-speed internet connections.
