WiSuite’s technology gives us the power to accommodate guest preferences and reduce our energy usage
San Antonio, Texas (PRWEB) March 25, 2015
WiSuite, a leading provider of guest room energy management systems for the hospitality industry, announced the Hyatt Regency San Antonio Riverwalk implemented its WiSuite Intelligent Network (WIN) and WiStat-SS Smart Screen thermostats, following a review of available solutions. WiSuite’s technology helps hoteliers capture energy cost savings by monitoring guest room occupancy in real time and provides the Hyatt property improved profitability, environmental sustainability and guest comfort.
“Hyatt is an industry leader for comprehensive global energy and water data tracking across its properties,” noted Jimmy Yarbrough, Hyatt Area Director of Engineering. “WiSuite’s technology gives us the power to accommodate guest preferences and reduce our energy usage, contributing to both guest satisfaction and our Hyatt 2020 Vision of responsible environmental stewardship.”
WIN allows hotel management to monitor conditions in guest rooms in real time and make changes remotely, empowering them to proactively anticipate guest requests and minimize disruption to hotel operations. WiSuite interfaces with the hotel’s property management system, enabling the hotel to decrease energy consumption associated with heating and cooling in vacant or unoccupied rooms.
“Hyatt manages how its hotels use energy to serve their guests in a clear and thoughtful manner,” noted John Gallant, CEO of WiSuite USA. “Hotels in a climate like San Antonio’s have tremendous potential to save on cooling costs and make meaningful reductions to their carbon footprint and other sustainability measures – this investment demonstrates clear alignment between the Hyatt 2020 Vision and its day-to-day operations.”
WiSuite’s state-of-the-art thermostat also influenced Hyatt’s decision to select WiSuite. WiStat-SS Smart Screen thermostats combine sleek styling and a touchscreen interface that can display hotel logos and useful information for guests, such as outside weather conditions.
“WiSuite has consistently delivered throughout this project,” added Yarbrough. “The new design of the thermostat combined with the software capabilities made it an easy choice to alternatives we reviewed and they completed the installation on time and within budget.”
