Microsoft will be attending this year’s HITEC, a conference that caters to the hospitality industry. It’s a platform for solutions providers like Microsoft to show off how their products and services can improve the industry.
At the conference, Microsoft will show off its futuristic Connect-Room demo, which visitors will need to boot for in advance, as well as show off new Windows 10 experiences. Speaking of Windows 10, the company will have a range of Windows devices running the upcoming operating system and detailing how they can be used to provide advanced hotel room experiences.
“You’ll be able to step inside and experience an advance look at Windows 10 and the real potential of voice and touch technologies to enhance in-room guest experiences.” – Microsoft
Some of the highlights at the Microsoft booth include getting some hand-on time with Monscierge, which is a suite of connectivity and hotel management tools that run across a number of different devices, as well as digital room solutions to control room lighting and climate, solutions tailored to customer-facing staff so that they are always well equipped to meet customer needs, as well as other solutions based on Microsoft Dynamics CRM and Microsoft Azure.
“And that’s just the beginning” says Microsoft, as the company plans to show off a lot more solutions that can help this fast growing industry thrive and reach its full potential.
