NEC Corporation has announced the launch of “NEC Smart Hospitality Solutions,” an integrated portfolio of solutions for the international hospitality industry in response to the increasing market demand to enhance the guest experience while increasing the efficiency of hotel operations.
NEC Smart Hospitality Solutions consist of key solutions related to hotel operations, including communications platforms, Unified Communications (UC) applications, Property Management Systems (PMS), facial recognition systems, digital signage and guest room management systems.
NEC plans to continually strengthen the NEC Smart Hospitality Solutions portfolio while promoting its “Hotel IT in a Box” approach, which offers hotel solutions consolidated into a single server platform. Based on this approach, NEC launched the Application Platform for Hotels, a vertically integrated solution platform optimized for the hospitality industry, in April 2015 for Asian markets. Moving forward, NEC plans to further integrate new solutions such as PMS into the Application Platform for Hotels.
“By providing integrated comprehensive hotel solutions, NEC enables hotel owners and operators to deliver value-added services that exceed guest expectations, help gain loyal customers, enhance the efficiency of staff and their systems, and contribute to improved profitability,” said Yasunori Sakamoto, Group Chief Executive, Global Hospitality Group, NEC Corporation. “NEC has established a Global Hospitality Group at our head office that is responsible for global delivery and support of the NEC Smart Hospitality Solutions. Looking ahead, we are planning to launch regional business support centers in major international bases to accelerate the global rollout of these solutions.”
NEC Smart Hospitality Solutions belong to the lineup of NEC Global Enterprise Solutions, NEC’s portfolio of continually upgraded and expanded solutions and services offered globally to enterprise customers in retail, distribution, manufacturing and other fields.
