The Future

The Future of Technology in the Hospitality Industry


Hotel Trends Poland & CEE is a one of a kind two-day event specified for the hotel industry. It brings together all the decision-makers of the industry – stakeholders, representatives of development companies and investment funds, as well as leading suppliers of products and services for the hospitality and tourism industry in one place. The topics discussed in the panels and sessions revolve around issues such as the current situation on the market, strategic changes, new trends, concepts, opportunities and challenges, recent trends encroaching on the global market and revenue and profit maximization.

This year, the conference took place on November 28 and 29 in Sofitel Warsaw Victoria, and Hossam Megahed, Founder and CEO of IPMagiX, was a guest speaker. He spoke during the session about new technologies in the hospitality industry; their present and future. He discussed the latest trends in guest experience using a digital infrastructure like Wi-Fi, HSIA and IPTV. “Not only is Wi-Fi a demanded service, but Wi-Fi is the most important feature a hotel can offer their guests and the best way to encourage them to come back over and over again, especially if it’s good”, Megahed commented. He also talked about solutions and indoor location-based services, which his company IPMagiX develops, and how these platforms gather and analyze statistics that improve service and guest experience. Guests could now receive personalized offers depending on preferences and location, or loyalty points for service use. They become more engaged, and this closes communication gaps, effectively serving all stakeholders of the industry.

Hotel in Egypt's New Administrative Capital

Hotel in Egypt's New Administrative Capital

A hotel that is currently in development at the New Administrative Capital in Egypt will be taking up approximately 10 acres of land that accommodates 750 rooms. Further planned developments include 100 more acres, accommodating 30,000 residential units, 400 villas and 120 townhouses, in addition to a mall, conference hall, and lake area.

The Challenge

The biggest challenge was to accommodate to the broad vision of this project, which is to create a global city with a smart infrastructure and take advantage of the sustainable technologies of today, as well as be adaptable to future technologies while supporting a healthy lifestyle.

The Solution

Our solution was to roll out IP Telephony, IPTV and Mobility solutions for IoT readiness, and to expedite day-to-day services like Smart parking, location awareness, entertainment and in-house guest services, regardless of the interface used by the guest (Mobile, IPTelephone or IPTV)

The Challenge

After a huge hacking incident, security became the #1 demand as the first step to accommodate to the broad vision of the project, which is to create a global network, securely binding and facilitating the communications of 3,000 users distributed across the sphere.

The Solution

Using a smart infrastructure and today’s UC technologies, we virtually converted their global network of embassies into one office. The solution consisted of a scalable MagiXOffice solution built on Cisco IP Phones including DX (Android) range, featuring Secured Phone Lock, IP Paging, Single-Sign On, and HyperDirectory.

A survey established among the entire organization has shown that 92% of people had acknowledged a dramatic improvement in the overall quality of communications, and 95% of the customer’s IT administrators accredited the elevated level of security that they needed. The survey also reflected an enhanced level of employee collaboration by an astounding 150%.


AL GOUNA Integrated Hospitality Community

AL GOUNA Integrated Hospitality Community

Lying north of Hurghada on the west coast of the Red Sea, el Gouna was founded twenty five years ago by Orascom Hotels & Development (OHD). The town stretches over 10 km of beach and embraces 18 spectacular hotels and 24,000 residents spreading across islands and lagoons. Boasting a superb infrastructure, excellent array of services, sandy beaches, ideal temperatures to welcome visitors all year round with a short flight from Europe, the town was once a popular destination before 2011.

The Challenge

After the fall of tourism in 2011, OHD decided to cooperate with technology and go the extra mile. Helping the tourism industry became a cause and OHD decided to positioned itself as an “Environmentally friendly community” and become one of the world’s top green destinations. The idea was to turn it around into a full community that will both attract and fully satisfy vacationers, residents and business travels as well, to contribute and play a major role in reviving the industry again.

The Solution

Phase I: IPTV

 

Phase II: Mobile Solution Coverage

Achieved Goals

Created a competitive advantage, guest comfort allowing customer loyalty. El Gouna has been recognized as Egypt’s most environmentally friendly holiday destination. In addition, hotels were able to increase their rates from £75 (in 2014) to £100 per night.
