LONDON, UK (PRWEB UK) 6 July 2012
Cotell International, the specialist hotel telephone manufacturer, today announced the launch of its new “small footprint” hotel phone. The latest model – the “SL” (short for “slim”) is just that, coming in at a slender 12cm wide and 20cm in length.
“Feedback from hotels - in Europe especially – has seen increased demand for a smaller hotel phone. Space efficiency is a big factor for hotel guestroom designers and is an on-going concern for hotel operators as the pressure to ‘do more with less’ increases”, says Jonathan Toni, Managing Director of Cotell EMEA.
Mr Toni continues: “Whilst Cotell could have met this need comparatively easily by building a smaller ‘de-featured’ hotel phone, customer feedback was that hoteliers did not want to lose functionality, or at least certainly did not want to be seen to be cutting back the service provided to guests. Features such as a high quality speakerphone, a full length customisable faceplate, and programmable guest service keys were highlighted to us as being essential in the functionality of the guestroom phone. As such the SL took a number of development revisions to get right, but today we feel we’ve met the need perfectly with a great looking, highly functional, hotel phones.”
The new “SL” model will share the same customisations and options available across the rest of Cotell’s Fuego Series range of hotel phones. Such features include the option of solid Acrylic or PVC custom-design faceplates, a weighted metal stand, as well as a hi-gloss scratch-resistant paint finish – a first for the industry, and something which gives hotel room designers the chance to customise the colour scheme of the phone to exactly match the décor of their hotel room.
Cotell’s Fuego Series of hotel phones has already been keenly received by hoteliers and major hotel groups, with orders placed by groups such as Marriott, Starwood’s Luxury Collection, Kempinski, IHG, Jumeirah, Trump, Accor, Meliá and many others.
