(PRWEB) June 11, 2005
EthoStream, LLC, a Milwaukee-based high-speed Internet solution provider, announced today its acquisition of HSIA operations from St. Petersburg, FL-based Powerlinx, Inc. The acquisition will transfer all existing customers and new sales to EthoStream for both installation and ongoing support. In addition, each property will become a member of the EthoStream Hospitality Network, with access to all of its benefits including the RMC, support statistics, and monthly updates.
"With the hospitality industryÂs rapid addition of HSIA as a guest amenity, EthoStream has created a comprehensive solution for property owners. We are happy to extend our EthoStream Hospitality Network to Powerlinx properties and look forward to providing them with our exceptional service and support." said Jason Tienor, President & CEO of EthoStream. "With this new addition, we continue to strengthen our position as a leading HSIA vendor in the hospitality industry."
Powerlinx Inc., a power line technology company, has delivered high-speed Internet services to hotels since 2004. "EthoStream has a proven track record for excellent service and support. At the end of the day, itÂs all about service,Â said Powerlinx CFO Douglas Bauer. ÂEthoStream was head and shoulders above the other providers we evaluated.Â
As guests demand quality Internet access, EthoStream continues to be the vendor of choice as its EthoStream Hospitality Network has mushroomed to greater than 275 properties in early 2005. With its comprehensive offering including centralized printing, integrated reporting, centralized web-based management over all properties and industry-leading support, EthoStream is able to provide property owners with complete project ownership from initial site survey through 24/7 support. The EthoStream Remote Management Console (RMC), which can be seen at http://www.ethostream.com/demo_console.php, provided owners with true value in its centralized reporting and property management. This web-based console also integrates well with EthoStream hospitality products including online video surveillance and VOIP for hospitality.
