The agreement is set to strengthen IRIS’s position in the Middle East and introduce the IRIS Valet solution to the region along with the required support.
“Earlier this year we launched the Personal Valet System at The Hotel Show 2007 in Dubai. The feedback we got on this innovative device from the industry gurus that attended the show assured us that the Middle East region will be a vital market to us,” said Ashley Murdoch, managing director IRIS Software Solutions.
“We are glad to be working with a professional company such as eLinear, which will maintain our standards and will ensure the best delivery of a world class device that meets the ongoing demands of the hospitality sector in the region.”
The new product, a wireless touch screen device, is set to revolutionise the in-room service approach by offering a highly efficient and cost effective tool for hotels and a personalized high quality service for guests.
“The hospitality sector is moving towards more sophisticated, yet simplified in-room services. Fueling this move, recent studies have revealed that automated in-room services can boost hotel sales significantly, while enhancing the guest experience. We are glad to be introducing the IRIS Valet system which will definitely set new standards in the hospitality sector in the region,” said Ramzi Nassar, president of eLinear Solutions Middle East. “We are looking forward to this partnership with IRIS to add value to our rich portfolio and to deliver best practices to our end users.”
Personal Valet system provides ‘self-service’ features to hotel guests in the language of their choice thus preventing inconveniences that occur between customers and hotel staff due to miscommunication. This is an interesting new concept and an area of guest services that several IT vendors are looking at worldwide, however IRIS has both the hand-held state of the art devices with personalisation features for hotel guests and the back-office solution to make the solution complete.
