World Cinema Introduces Suite Of Smart Contactless Technology And Entertainment Features Including Mobile Web Remote And Housekeeping App For Hotels And Guests

World Cinema’s Fully Customizable WorldVue Platform Enables Digital Transformation for Hotels and Safe Contactless Experiences for Guests

HOUSTON, Aug. 12, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — World Cinema, the leader in providing innovative technology, services and connectivity to guest-centric properties, today announced a robust suite of contactless technology and entertainment features for the company’s WorldVue platform.  WorldVue is a fully customizable platform that enables hotels to offer guests the most innovative technology and entertainment services available, ultimately helping hotels to digitally transform their property and maximize revenue opportunities.

New and notable features include the WorldVue Mobile Web Remote – a contactless solution for hotel guests that puts their personal devices in control without having to touch the hotel television remote.  Guests can simply scan and connect to access the WorldVue in-room entertainment system, access room service directly from their personal device, as well as many other customizable services. 

In addition, the new WorldVue Housekeeping App provides hotels with yet another option for managing property operations.  The WorldVue Housekeeping App allows in-room notifications to guests and staff that a room has been cleaned and sanitized instantaneously.  The Housekeeping App provides the hotel staff with a wide array of customizable stats for hotel management including information on whether the room is occupied; status of the room if cleaned, serviced or sanitized; a staff code or numeric value to indicate the responsible staff for each room; instant, updated record of the time period elapsed since last housekeeping service; and the time period of when the last time the room was occupied, just to name a few.

“We are committed to partnering with our hotel customers to build guest satisfaction and brand loyalty to ensure sustained profitability.  The WorldVue platform offers guests smart, contactless technology features and functionality, as well as the latest in in-room entertainment choices,” said Tommy Fatjo, President, World Cinema. “WorldVue is truly a unique and dynamic way for hotels to safely communicate and digitally interact with their guests.”
