Flyte Systems tapped its parent company, Industrial Television Services (ITS), for an expanded product line of digital signage solutions for hospitality and related businesses. At HITEC in New Orleans, June 20 – 23, Flyte Systems will showcase a family of advanced display services that go beyond hotel flight information to smooth the travel experience. Topping Flyte Systems’ innovation list is the Mobile Message Manager, which lets authorized staff update digital signage guest messaging anywhere, anytime from any mobile device.

“Flyte Systems is coming to HITEC 2016 with a new lineup of digital signage services and systems,” said Vice President Scott Triphahn. “We deliver much more than airline information today. We drew on our parent company ITS to create display solutions that meet the information needs of virtually any hotel or related business.” The first innovation is Mobile Message Manager. This enables hotel operators to instantly change and create digital signage messaging remotely and in real time from a handheld device so meeting information, wayfinding, and events are always current. Managers can provide guests with the most up to date information without having to divert staff from guest facing duty. Applications include informing guests of last minute promotions and specials, shuttle schedules, welcome messages, and weather and travel related events to name a few.

Transporting guests to offsite locations can only be effective if guests give you enough time to get them to their destination. This issue is most important at hotels taking travelers to the airport, where guests need to be conscious of flight times and potential delays.

In hotels where this is pertinent, companies such as Flyte Systems, a provider of digital signage that tracks the status of airline arrivals and departures, can be of assistance, in particular for hotels that are frequented by flight crews. These crews run on a tight schedule that relies on strict travel times, and ensuring they are aware of where they need to be at all times can keep hotels out of hot water.
