Kube Systems and Gimbal Partner to Offer Guestroom Beacons

Kube Systems said it partnered with Gimbal to bring location-based marketing to the guestroom via the Kube Essentials multi-device charger. Hotels can leverage Kube Essentials together with Gimbal to engage customers by offering promotions and other contextual notifications to their mobile devices. The service allows the hotel to drive revenue by vastly improving the consumer journey, both inside and outside the hotel room.
Kube Essentials with Gimbal built in will be on display in Booth 2435 at HITEC, to be held June 26 to 29 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
Since 2011, Gimbal has helped brands across a range of industries reach their mobile advertising and marketing goals. In the hotel environment, Gimbal will deliver custom content to guests’ using a smart combination of mobile apps, beacons, and geofences.
According to Kube Systems, no hotel today is using beacon technology in the guestroom. So it approached Gimbal to see if it would embark on an integration partnership to embed its beacon into Kube Systems' newest in-room charging solution. With some major hotel brands now using beacons in public spaces, Kube wanted to make available a unique solution that would enable the same technology to be deployed in guestrooms. Any hotel running the Gimbal beacon in conjunction with its mobile app can place Kube Essentials in its guestroom. Not only will it add location-based marketing services to the room, but it will give guests a place to charge ALL their mobile devices, including laptops.
Kube Essentials offers built-in charging cables – one Apple Lightning and one Micro USB – that are upgradeable to next generation charging formats. For example, the Micro USB cable can be upgraded to USB Type-C (reversible plug capability). It also features two USB Ports and an optional wireless Qi charging pad that enables guests to drop and charge their compatible mobile device on a large four-inch surface.
