NEC Introduces Scalable, Software-Based Communications Solution for Hospitality
NEC Unified Solutions (NEC) this week launched an affordable, purely software-based IP communications solution designed to provide hotels with basic and advanced communication solutions that support hotel staff efficiency and productivity while enabling self-service voice applications to the guests they serve.
UNIVERGE Sphericall for Hospitality, a 100 percent software-based solution built on the Sphericall enterprise softswitch platform, offers substantial ownership cost savings and productivity benefits.
Additionly, Sphericall for Hospitality allows for the integration of advanced features seldom made available in an economical and cost-effective communications solution for small- and medium-sized hotels. The solution integrates out-of-the-box with many existing Property Management Systems (PMS) and third-party hospitality in-room telephone handsets providers, and provides a rich, service-oriented architecture to integrate to a broad range of business applications.
“Operators and developers of small- and medium-sized hotels have been asking us for an IP communications solution which does not require new devices, scales to support their changing requirements, can be easily implemented and is easy to manage,” said Jay Krauser, general manager of portfolio management at NEC Unified. “With the introduction of Sphericall for Hospitality, hotels will be able to take advantage of the latest innovations in communications previously unobtainable in an integrated bundle, even in today’s challenging economy.”
