Uniguest, a Nashville-based provider of secure managed technology services targeting the hospitality industry, and Google have announced a partnership to offer devices powered by Google Chrome OS in hotels.
Terms of the deal, the announcement for which was made during a press conference at HITEC in Austin, were not disclosed in a release. Uniguest will install, set up and manage the following technology devices powered by Google Chrome OS:
• Uniguest Chromebase for Public-Use Computers
• Uniguest Chromebase Kiosks
• Uniguest Chromebox for Digital Signage
• Uniguest Chromebox for Meetings
“This partnership ushers in a new era in how hotels provide their guests with secure and easy access to technology at a price that is far below what is typical for this level of service,” Paul Payette, Uniguest vice president of global business development, said in the release. “We are gearing up for rapid and broad deployment of these Google Chrome solutions, as demand is likely to be very strong.”
Chris Lydle, global lead for digital signage at Google, said hotels “around the world have embraced Uniguest’s large-scale, integrated capabilities.”
“Whether end-users collaborate on Chromebox for Meetings, send emails on a Chromebase Kiosk or interact with Chromebox for digital signage, they can always rely on a secure and dependable interaction with our fully managed technology solutions — and be assured it’s always up to date,” he said.
