New technology partnership integrates InnSpire’s industry-leading IPTV guestroom entertainment controls with Bodhi’s advanced room control platform.
STOCHKHOLM & WASHINGTON DC – InnSpire, leading provider of a comprehensive technology suite that helps drive a seamless, world-class guest experience for some of the world’s most iconic hotels and brands, announced a strategic partnership with Bodhi, a cloud-based, fully integrated, property-wide building management platform purpose-built for hotel guest rooms and amenity spaces. The new partnership integrates InnSpire’s industry-leading guestroom IPTV solution with Bodhi’s advanced room control platform. This allows hoteliers to elevate the guest in-room experience, while driving ancillary revenue through the guestroom TV, providing guests with access to a host of property services such as in-room dining, spa reservations, marketplace, merchandise, experiences and gifts.
InnSpire’s award-winning IPTV in-room entertainment solution provides full TV remote control with optional smart TV connectivity for standard televisions, as well as Chrome casting and video on demand for IOS and Android devices. Additional features and capabilities available via the TV system include mobile check-in/out, room service ordering, hotel commerce, guest requests, concierge, Wi-Fi connectivity and authentication, promotions and payments.
Through the integrated GRMS (Guest Room Management System) hotel guests have the ability to control climate, lights and shades, connect to housekeeping, valet, and reservations, and use a chat bubble for hassle-free communications with property staff.
The new integration with Bodhi adds the ability to automatically trigger guestroom systems to provide the perfect welcome scene, including climate, lighting and background music when guests first enter the room. This process can be streamlined through a simple method of powering up the TVs to display a personalized video welcome message. In addition, Bodhi provides substantial energy savings via occupancy-based setbacks of climate, lights and other systems, including the ability to power down the TV when rooms are not occupied.
Through the integration with Bodhi, InnSpire clients can now add:
- Full-property integration
- Energy savings of up to 45%
- Welcome scenes
- Event scheduling
- A multi-platform dashboard
- Predictive maintenance
- Expanded OMS and device integration
“Our exciting new partnership with Bodhi allows our hotel clients to create the ultimate guestroom entertainment offering for their guests, while enjoying significant energy savings and streamlined operations,” said Martin Chevalley, InnSpire CEO. “The combined solution also enables unprecedented personalization features and cloud-based mobile convenience for both staff and guests. This helps our clients to stand out and stay ahead through the most advanced technologies.”
