Canada: Vancouver-based Operto Guest Technologies and SolutionInc Technologies Limited have announced their strategic partnership.
The alliance unites their respective market-leading guest technologies and cloud Wi-Fi services that address the rapidly expanding vacation and short-term rental industry.
The vacation rental market is experiencing significant growth, with investors and property management companies increasingly seeking experienced technology providers to address their enterprise needs across their wide portfolios. Operto and SolutionInc, leaders in their respective markets, have combined their years of experience in hospitality and vacation rentals, making this partnership both unique and of the highest value to property managers, owners and their guests.
Through the partnership, Operto’s customers now have the option to add SolutionInc commercial grade Wi-Fi management and installation services, providing them with a full Smart Stay package enabled by the best possible Wi-Fi. When Smart Stay technology is implemented into a property to help managers run their business, a properly configured Wi-Fi network becomes increasingly important.
SolutionInc director of new business ventures, Robin Veinotte, said: “Wi-Fi is the backbone of smart home technology and without it, your business may struggle, making continued growth a challenge.”
SolutionInc has provided Internet gateway and managed services for more than 20 years, boasting 14 of the world’s 25 largest hotels as customers, and currently provides Wi-Fi services in more than 700,000 hotel rooms across 50 countries.
By teaming up, Operto and SolutionInc are improving guest experience by providing professional set-up, administration and management services, while reducing the frustration and complexity typically experienced with deploying smart home technologies on a large scale. The partnership allows customers to concentrate on their core business while being assured that important guest technology is being managed, without consuming internal resources.
Operto and its Smart Stay solution for professional property management, is already making waves by solving the operational issues facing property managers.
Operto CEO Michael Driedger said: “Wi-Fi is an important part of the business of hospitality. Having a consistently reliable internet connection is repeatedly coming up as the number one requirement for guests across all customer groups. Having a solid Wi-Fi infrastructure also ensures that all of our technology runs smoothly giving our property manager clients the very best offering for their guests and owners.
“SolutionInc, with its track record for supplying many of the world’s hospitality businesses with commercial grade Wi-Fi is the perfect fit for our technology,” he added.
Operto’s Smart Stay solution is currently being used by vacation rentals, hotels, serviced apartments and niche accommodation in North America, Europe, Asia and the Caribbean.
