Westin Taipei to launch interTouchs new-generation Broadband System

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Tuesday, 9 October 2007

interTouch, a leading broadband Internet provider to the hospitality industry, has signed an agreement with The Westin Taipei to provide the hotel with its new-generation iBIS 7.0 proprietary broadband system.

We are pleased to partner interTouch to provide this service for our guests, which will allow them the freedom to roam and work anywhere in the hotel via seamless mobility from wired to wireless access in all 288 guest rooms, public areas and meeting rooms, said Mr Samuel Lee, Director of Rooms, The Westin Taipei.

Besides enhanced support of media-rich graphics, access to real-time information feeds, free sites and customised information, guests will enjoy a wider range of billing plans to fit their budgets and needs.

The benefits extend to the hotel as well. The industry-recognised (InfoVision Awards 2007 Finalist) iBIS 7.0 remains stable and robust even as hotel volumes increase, thus making it easy for future interTouch solutions to be integrated and deployed within the hotel. With a highly flexible and intuitive graphical user interface, the iBIS 7.0 allows hotels to incorporate their brand identity, as well as promote their F&B and other offers on the guest portal.

As part of the partnership, interTouch will also provide training for staff at The Westin Taipei so they are able to get the most out of the new system, as well as respond professionally to guests queries. interTouchs 24-hour multi-lingual support service is also available to all guests.

Mr Charles Reed, CEO of interTouch, said, Increasingly, todays discerning business travellers expect high speed and secured Internet services that allow them to be as productive on the road as they are in the office. With growing sophistication security has become a major priority. interTouch responded to this by engaging a global Fortune 500 company to perform an in-depth security evaluation of iBIS 7.0.
