With these mobile devices in our hands, and media and information up in The Cloud, there are limitless possibilities for access.
This is a game-changing development for the hospitality industry.
It is opening a variety of delivery mechanisms for personal guest services that are affordable, efficient and easy to use. Not only is it now easier to travel the world, it is also easier for hotels to operate and could change how guests interact with a hotel.
