LOS ANGELES (June 16, 2016) — SONIFI® Solutions, the leading provider of innovative guest engagement solutions in hospitality and Single Digits, the leading global provider of High Speed Internet Access (HSIA) solutions, today announced extending their existing partnership by developing seamless pairing functionality and by signing a reseller agreement that makes SoniCast™ available to Single Digits’ current and future customer base.
Seamless pairing enables a hotel guest to pair their device with TV in the room by simply signing on the hotel Wi-Fi. This integration works with existing Wi-Fi infrastructures and does not require an access point in every room. Through this new agreement, Single Digits will begin offering SoniCast – powered by Chromecast, a state of the art over-the-top platform that enables guests to cast 1000+ apps to the in-room television by simply signing onto the hotel Wi-Fi.
“We are excited to offer SoniCast to our customers. No service is more requested by hotel guests today than casting over-the-top subscriptions from apps such as Netflix, Hulu, Sling TV and MLB,” said Bob Goldstein, CEO of Single Digits. “Through our technical collaboration with SONIFI, Single Digits’ Broadband Authentication Platform software enables a solution for seamlessly pairing a guest device to their room by simply signing onto hotel Wi-Fi. This product is transforming the industry, and our partnership will help accelerate its deployment.”
“We are excited to not only have one, but two hotels in our portfolio installed with SoniCast,” said Craig Hulford, Area General Manager of The New Orleans Hotel Collection. “Giving our guests access to this feature furthers our goal of enhancing the guest experience with distinctive amenities and personalized service.
“Single Digits has been a great partner to SONIFI in providing best-in-class technology for our Internet Services platform,” said Ahmad Ouri, CEO of SONIFI Solutions. “It was natural to collaborate with Single Digits on the implementation of the SoniCast API and to welcome them as our first reseller, as their software uniquely positions SoniCast to pair without the use of an ‘app’. SONIFI and Single Digits customers will now enable a seamless over-the-top experience for their guests in one single step.”
Interested parties can witness this behavior and learn more about SoniCast at SONIFI’s Booth #1101 and Single Digits’ Booth #219 at HITEC in New Orleans June 21 – 23.
