Vivonet at HITEC 2017: Day 2 Re-Cap

Yesterday was the first full day of the open trade show floor at HITEC Toronto 2017. As our multi-departmental team at Vivonet anticipated, it was a lively day of meeting people and talking about transformative technology for the hotels industry.

On the first day of any show, one common priority is to try to catch the buzz. Among all of the technology offerings on display at the show, what are some of the common themes to the conversations we're having? Well, that just what we asked a selection of members from our team, and captured their responses on video. Here's what they said.

 
 

It came as very little surprise to us that attendees at the show wanted to talk about the cloud, and about how to connect their operations together in a more accessible, and more manageable technological environment.

In the video above, Joshua mentioned the idea of guests being able to skip lines, and make purchases according to their own schedules, not necessarily dictated by a line, or even if there's a staff person on duty.Graham talked about how cloud-based platforms allow for a greater ease of integration that enable companies to scale more easily and quickly and to enhance guest experience. James mentioned a more pervasive willingness in the hotel industry to embrace technology solutions, rather than relying on outdated processes. And Andrea talked about cost-savings, which is hardly a new thing in the industry. But the way to get there is a much clearer path.

Passionate about the cloud

It's the cloud that enables hotel industry leaders to invest in the gamut of the latest technology, unifying functionality into a working whole. This includes many of the things we're featuring at our booth, including cloud-based POS, kiosk, and mobile insights. But it also includes many types of technologies that are currently making inroads outside of our specific offering, including various forms of automation. We have seen some amazing examples of that at the show this year, and we've started some fascinating conversations around the possibilities of what Vivonet's offering can become in the near future.

All of these points are vital to understanding how the industry is changing, and indicates the paths that hotel brands will take to make sure they ride the wave of that change into the future.

This is why shows like HITEC are so important to the direction of the industry. Coming together like this and sharing ideas allows industry leaders to form new visions for the directions of their brands.

New technologies

New technologies supported in the cloud allow a shift in thinking on the part of leaders to better strategize around creating a superior guest experience. That's what it's still all about; serving the guest in the most efficient, and friendly way possible. If there is another common theme at this year's HITEC and throughout the rest of the year, that's surely the most important.

Today, we'll be hitting the trade show floor again, and having more discussions. This time, it will be with some of our fellow attendees. We'll be asking them for their impressions of the show, and about some of the conversations they're having about emerging technology in the hospitality space.

Come see us at booth 1109

In the meantime, we'll still have representatives from Vivonet working booth 1109. If you're at the show, we'd love to talk to you. We're having a great time at HITEC 2017 so far!

Come on by for a chat and share your impressions with us.
