Imagine if your front desk staff never had to answer the question: “How do I connect to the Wi-Fi?” For years, hoteliers and solution providers have been working hard to develop a simple and seamless solution that would allow guests to connect to the internet as soon as they walk through the front doors. IHG Hotels & Resorts has finally figured out the perfect solution for its brand. It’s spent the last two years developing Wi-Fi Auto Connect, a new feature within its mobile app that allows IHG One Rewards members to automatically connect to the internet upon arrival at any of its hotels worldwide without needing to put in an access code or a login.
During Hotel Technology Forum, we’ll talk on-stage with Vijay Raghavan, Director, Digital Stay Experience Products, IHG Hotels & Resorts, about the development process, the rollout process, and the major success they’ve seen since its implementation. It’s sure to be a session you won’t want to miss!
