FlyteBoard is 'easy to install and came up perfectly'
“The majority of our hotel guests and conference attendees travel through Dulles International Airport. When I observed FlyteBoard installations at other properties, I knew our guests would value its accurate, real-time flight data. Flyte Systems’ reliable information takes the stress out of airport travel plans,” said Richard Valero, director of rooms and operations at The National Conference Center. “FlyteBoard was easy to install. The company sent the equipment, told us how to set it up, and put us in touch with an engineer if we wanted help. We plugged the FlyteBoard in and it came up perfectly.”

The National Conference Center is 12 miles from Dulles International Airport and 35 miles from Washington, D.C. It is one of the largest and most comprehensive conference centers in the nation with 917 guest rooms and over 250,000 square feet of meeting and group function space, including the West Belmont Place catering complex with its 16,500 square foot ballroom.

More Will Be Revealed
“We are humbled to have been selected to serve The National Conference Center,” said Scott Triphahn, Flyte Systems vice president. “We continue to enhance our offerings to benefit those we serve. Stand alone or integrated meeting displays, amenity and promotional displays, and “accessorizing” our existing lineup all maintain a common theme of making life easier. Whether guiding guests, properly arming people with facts for better decision making, or generating interest and a call to action, Flyte Systems will continue to expand its solutions to boost profits, reduce burdens and bring comfort to travelers, visitors and staff.

FlyteBoard shrinks service kiosk line, frees front desk team
“The FlyteBoard is a valuable guest service and it helps our operation be more efficient,” Valero said. “Before we had FlyteBoard in the lobby, guests would line up at our service kiosk or question our front desk team about their flight’s status. Now they have all their airline information clearly visible. No need to pull out their handheld, open an app, select an airport, and search for their flight on the small screen. FlyteBoard is more convenient and always accurate.”
