Winning the Digital Marketplace Starts with a Solid Cellular Network

RoamBOOST identifies five reasons why cellular is key to digital dominance
Boston, Mass. — March 28, 2017 — The No. 1 strategic technology goal for more than half (52%) of U.S. hotels today is to improve digital customer engagement (2017 Lodging Technology Study). While some operators are focusing on analytics to drive their digital marketing efforts, others are honing in on connectivity by using handheld tools to book faster reservations, get into their rooms faster with mobile keys and even stream personalized music and content faster from cellular devices. While these new amenities are trendy, RoamBOOST is advising hoteliers not to overlook the fundamentals – without a solid cellular network, guests won’t be happy with a slow, unreliable experience.
“Mobile technology is touching every aspect of the customer journey,” said Sarah Smith, RoamBOOST vice president of sales, Northeast. “There are mobile bookings via mobile apps, mobile marketing offers that are pushed to guests based on their location and preferences, mobile room controls that set temperature and open/shut drapes, mobile streaming that wirelessly sends audio/video content to room speakers or the TV, mobile check-out backed by mobile surveys, and so much more. We’ve become a mobile hospitality industry dictated by a digital guest experience. Given that travelers are 100% reliant on their smartphones to navigate this marketplace, it’s critical that hoteliers don’t forget that guests still need to be able to make and take phone calls. The most high-tech hotel will eventually sit empty if its guests and meeting planners can’t get a cell signal. No matter how much money a hotel invests in WiFi, cellular is an independent component that simply can’t be ignored.”
