Flyte Systems offering airline information at hotels
October 15, 2008
Flyte Systems, a provider of
subscription-based airport flight information
displays and digital signage content
for the hospitality industry, convention centers and related businesses, has partnered
with interactive digital signage provider DisplayIQ to install real-time
airline travel information at two properties on the DisplayIQ
platform. Flyte Systems is the only company that provides real-time
airline departure information.
Hotels implementing Flyte Systems airline information on the DisplayIQ interactive digital signage platform are the Fairmont Chicago and the Hyatt Regency Phoenix. A third installation is anticipated at a Ritz Carlton property by year end.
“At every property where we have installed our digital signage systems, managers asked for live flight time information,” said Brian Cunningham, president of DisplayIQ, a division of RoomNet, Inc. “Hotel operators today know guests expect to have access to live airline information at any quality property. We utilize Flyte Systems’ real-time airline information in an interactive format so guests see airline flight times and may even customize the view for their greatest ease of use.”
Cunningham explained DisplayIQ also deploys property information in a unique interactive platform that takes digital signage beyond traditional informational readerboards. “Our display solutions represent the next level in hospitality signage which incorporates interactive touch for photo-realistic wayfinding, meeting information, live flight status, touch-to-dial and SMS functionality which connects guests instantly from their mobile phone to property attractions from dining to spa to golf or even the front desk.”
Brian Reynolds, president of Flyte Systems, said, “As Flyte Systems expands services to more properties, hotel companies and convention centers, it is also partnering with leading digital signage providers like DisplayIQ that incorporate our live airline data into their interactive guest information technology.” The Flyte Systems – DisplayIQ digital signage offering is an ASP-driven solution that delivers continuously updated information to ensure flight times are accurate and frees properties from system upgrade and maintenance responsibility.
