Jason Hope is an avid entrepreneur from Scottsdale, Arizona. According to him, the hospitality industry is prepared to benefit from the Internet of Things.
The Internet of Things commonly known as IoT is a technology that heavily relies on the internet and satellite to facilitate communication between two computing devices. Furthermore, the benefits of IoT include improved internet connectivity and enhanced reliability and speed of operations in the hotel.
Jason cited that as IoT becomes more pervasive and as consumers get more accustomed to these amenities, they end up demanding for similar amenities while traveling. He added that consumers would be expecting an amenity like an A/C units in their rooms.
Internet of Things can be used in the facial recognition software. This software alerts the front desk receptionist of a returning visitor. Moreover, the hotel is able to deliver personalized service based on the visitor’s preferences.
