Our real-time airline information keeps guests on property longer. But Flyte Systems provides much more than just flight information.

Flyte Systems, a division of ITS, will arrive at HITEC 2015 with three new digital signage solutions to improve guest service and increase property revenue. Hotel operators at HITEC will get the first look at EventDisplay and AmenityBoard. These affordable, high-definition flat panel displays present property events and way finding combined with a hotel’s promotions and special offers. EventChannel broadcasts hotel events and announcements to guest rooms. Travelers can access instant meeting updates, VIP acknowledgements, and airline flight information, if desired. Flyte Systems also added a property ‘message tape’ at the bottom of its widely-installed FlyteBoard. Hotels can enter their own promotional reminders to prompt guests as they check flights.

Flyte Systems is the leading provider of cost effective airport travel information displays and digital signage content for the hospitality, corporate training center, digital signage, and convention center industries and related businesses.

AmenityBoard marries real-time flight data with promos to increase guest spend
Scott Triphahn, Flyte Systems’ vice president, said, “Each of our new solutions drives revenue for property operators. Our AmenityBoard marries our real-time airline flight data with property information. We are giving operators an attractive, easy-to-use, multi-purpose message center. Properties can use AmenityBoard to offer F&B specials or other promotions, recognize VIPs, or make announcements that increase guest spend.” Triphahn noted that hotels can include property maps, weather and local traffic on AmenityBoard to attract guests' attention.

Travelers consult EventDisplay for meetings, venues, time, and weather
EventDisplay is an easily understood reader board that includes locations and way finding. “Our new EventDisplay shows property events with breakouts, meeting rooms, and venues in a variety of formats. Local time and local weather also appear at the bottom of the screen,” Triphahn said.

EventChannel raises awareness of hotel profit centers with in-room convenience
“We will also present EventChannel at HITEC," Triphahn continued. "Like our popular EventDisplay installed in the public space, EventChannel provides meeting information and other announcements in the convenience of the guest room.” He noted that properties can offer EventChannel as a dedicated guest television channel or integrate its content with other property programming.

“Our real-time airline information keeps guests on property longer. But Flyte Systems provides much more than just flight information,” Triphahn said. “Now our solutions generate revenue and stimulate guest awareness of multiple hotel profit centers such as spas, gift shops, and food and beverage outlets.”
