Hospitality Technology Next Generation, the premier technology solutions association for the hospitality industry, announced in late May the four winners of its 2020 TechOvation Award competition, which brings together the latest industry innovations from hospitality technology solution providers.
enseoCONNECT allows guests to use their own mobile devices to control their TV, room lights, window shades, thermostats, and other connected devices in their room. This unified remote approach does not require guests to download an app, maintain a login or touch the guest room remote. Guests do not even have to join the hotel Wi-Fi network. Instead, guests simply pair with the TV for instant access and control of their entire connected in-room experience.

What if hoteliers had a simple dashboard that continuously interpreted the entire world of online reviews for them and their teams, and made sure any issue got flagged, quantified and fixed? An AI that relentlessly scanned, analyzed, understood and prioritized the untamed onslaught of data out there – and visualized it in simple graphs and to-do’s – and either fixed issues automatically, or assigned the right person to the job? That is ReviewMagic.AI, designed to close the feedback loop.
Nonius Cast, Nonius
Nonius Cast offers guests a homelike Chromecast experience. Guests only need to be connected to the Hotel Wi-Fi. Nonius believes this is the best solution on the market in terms of usability and compatibility with existing TVs and Wi-Fi infrastructure. Any TV or Wi-Fi is supported.
YooniK ID, YooniK
YooniK ID is an identity SaaS cloud platform that allows hoteliers to instantly recognize loyal customers with 99.99% accuracy, in full compliance with data privacy regulations, and quick and easy onboarding via mobile or kiosk. Using facial recognition, YooniK ID allows hoteliers to have truly frictionless check-in and restaurant access as the hotel environment and objects, such as room doors, front desk, and breakfast lounge can rely on AI to recognize customers.
The TechOvation virtual platform, powered by UgoVirtual and sponsored by Comcast Business and Deep Blue Communications, will remain open through June 20. HTNG encourages individuals to visit the platform to view the recorded program, access and download content from the semi-finalists, and most importantly, maintain their industry connections by networking with others.
