HeadsUp FD Goes Live at World's Largest Hyatt Hotel and Hyatt's "Gateway to Silicon Valley" Property at the San Francisco Airport Hyatt Regency

Hospitality leader and technology innovator Hyatt Hotels adds HeadsUp FD to another two of its Regency properties.

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) April 18, 2013

This week when Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport and Hyatt Regency Chicago purchased HeadsUp FD for their front desk IT environments (Chicago also added it to concierge and PBX departments), it marked the next two in the current phase of properties which includes Grand Hyatt New York, Hyatt Regency Mexico City, Hyatt Regency Trinidad, Hyatt Regency Waikiki, Hyatt Regency Indianapolis and several others who have already added the proximity badge PC access solution to their front desk environment.

HeadsUp FD is a computer access solution which uses proximity badges and RFID (radio frequency identification) readers to securely access a computer without manually typing a user name or password.

One of the top ten airport hotels in the country*, business travelers and conventioneers staying at Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport will certainly appreciate the convenience and reliability that HeadsUp FD offers. Further, the Hotel’s location as the gateway to Silicon Valley is perfectly suited to extend cutting-edge services for today’s traveler.

“We are honored to have HeadsUp FD at Hyatt, our long standing customer and leader in the hospitality industry. Hyatt is a trend setter and innovator when it comes to technology.” said Neal Berz, President and Chief Executive Officer of MIS Computer. "Our HeadsUp FD solution enables hotels to enhance the quality of guest service giving front desk agents more heads up time with their guests, improve agent satisfaction and workflow efficiencies, and facilitate agent compliance with security and privacy regulations such as PCI. Our customers also report that it helps them decrease security risks associated with 'piggy-backing' (two agents sharing the same computer session). HeadsUp FD replaces the need to manually log in and log out multiple times per day with an easier and more convenient, secure tap of the badge for quick access to their own unique user session."

As reported by Hotel Management Magazine, Hyatt Regency Chicago, the largest property Hyatt operates worldwide, is preparing to unveil its $168M renovation this month, and HeadsUp FD will be among the technologies deployed in what is being called a “technology-driven oasis”.

"We couldn’t be more pleased that Hyatt Regency Chicago, right here in our home city, is implementing HeadsUp FD as part of their fabulous renovation. Our HeadsUp FD sign on solution frees up front desk agents and other users of shared computers to spend more time interacting personally with guests and less time interacting with their computers," said Peggy Clark, VP of Sales and Marketing at MIS Computer. "It handles the authentication, login, and logout and gives the users secure, immediate access to their own unique session with the quick tap of their proximity badge."

Clark continued, "It has dramatically increased user satisfaction, helping promote widespread compliance of security regulations, which in turn helps our customers meet PCI compliance."

The HeadsUp FD solution was born out of the healthcare industry as a sign-on solution for doctors and nurses accessing an EHR (electronic health record) system. HeadsUp FD was officially launched by MIS Computer in 2012 and is currently available worldwide.
