SuiteLinqTM and Swisscom Hospitality announce a strategic global alliance in which Swisscom Hospitality will serve as an integration partner and distributor of the SuiteLinq enterprise-wide, digital guest-services platform.

Under the agreement, Swisscom Hospitality will sell, service and maintain the SuiteLinq product set in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia-Pacific. The alliance also creates a framework for Swisscom Hospitality to provide service and support to SuiteLinq customers in the Americas.

"After careful evaluation of a number of potential partners, SuiteLinq is confident that Swisscom Hospitality is the best company to assist us with building awareness and expanding distribution of our Q multimedia platform," said Craig Ziegler, SuiteLinq president. "Over the past 10 years, Swisscom Hospitality has established a market share of more than 2,000 hotel partners in over 40 countries. They are hotel technology specialists, proficient in building and managing integrated network infrastructures that enable hoteliers to provide guests with differentiating service."

As a distributor of the Q platform, Swisscom Hospitality is adding a comprehensive suite of digital guest amenities to its portfolio, including: free-to-guest IPTV and IP Video-On-Demand, private / public-area guest interactive devices, mobile applications, and in-room / on-floor gaming. These hospitality technology products are the perfect complement to Swisscom Hospitality's existing suite of hospitality-centric solutions.

"The Suitelinq Q family of products represents a unique approach to unified guest-facing device management and content distribution,” said Rick Sternitzke, Swisscom Hospitality VP global services and CTO. “Suitelinq software brings the notion of write-once-view-anywhere to the hospitality vertical market while fulfilling each client’s bespoke brand and affinity requirements. This technology approach works for current generation in-room and mobile devices while allowing for the flexibility to extend the concept to new devices and display technologies as they reach the marketplace.  We look forward to adding Suitelinq to our Managed Services Portfolio.”

Swisscom Hospitality also announces that it has become a member of the LINQ360 Innovation Center, Powered by Microsoft. This consortium of hospitality technology companies, investors, academic institutions, and others brings together thought-leaders from all sectors of the global technology market in a dedicated collaboration center in Las Vegas, where truly integrated solutions can be developed and demonstrated for the benefit of world-class brands. Select LINQ360 members, including SuiteLinq, will be on hand in Private Meeting Room 329 at HITEC to demonstrate the benefits of the integrated concept.
