Calgary, Alberta & Winnipeg, Manitoba – November 13, 2013 – Guest-tek™ is showcasing a leap forward in efficiency and cost savings at one of Canada’s newest hotels. The recently opened Grand by Lakeview, near Richardson International Airport in Winnipeg, features Guest-tek’s OneView platform for their voice, video and data—all on a single, fully converged network.
This single infrastructure has many benefits including: less hardware, lower power consumption, savings on maintenance/operations and it eliminates the need for multiple vendors. In addition to lower operating expenses for the hotel, a converged network allows for additional services and makes upgrades and software updates easier to manage.
“We are excited to offer full convergence to the first of many hotel properties“, says Arnon Levy, CEO of Guest-tek. “Early on the Grand by Lakeview saw our OneView solution, with its numerous advantages as the right choice for their new hotel.”
The hotel also features Guest-tek’s new iACT voice solution—a versatile, cloud-based system with many high-end features in a simpler, less costly and more energy efficient design than most traditional PBX voice systems.
The Grand by Lakeview—a six story hotel with 101 guest rooms and suites, is set to offer the most modern of conveniences. For example, an iPad in each room allows guests to access a complete city guide and order room service or request an in-room amenity without having to pick up the phone.
Thanks to OneView guests can also access a personal video recording PVR service to record their favorite shows as well as pause, rewind, fast forward etc.
“Our goal is to deliver a very unique experience to our guests”, says Neil Fishman, General Manager of The Grand by Lakeview. “We want to be different than any hotel in this city by the features we offer.”
