Mitel Offers Keys to Boosting Hotel Revenue With Improved Guest Experience and Increased Operating Efficiencies

Brings Purpose-Built Platform for Hospitality Communications and Collaboration to North American Boutique and Select Service Hotels

OTTAWA, June 26, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE)
  • MiVoice Office 400 provides affordable, all-in-one solution designed for North American hotels with 40-150 rooms.
  • Delivers operational efficiency to exceed guest expectations and increase average daily rate (ADR).
  • Mitel is trusted by hoteliers in over 30,000 properties across the globe.

Mitel® (Nasdaq:MITL) (TSX:MNW), a global leader in enterprise communications, announced today the North American launch of MiVoice Office 400 hospitality package, an all-in-one solution that facilitates real-time guest and staff communications to give 40-150 room hotels a powerful foundation for driving operating efficiencies, increasing guest satisfaction and boosting ADR.

As travelers increasingly look to the mobile and social world for trip planning and hotel selection, online reviews carry significant weight when it comes to independent hotels. A recent TripAdvisor survey reveals online reviews are one of the most important decision making factors when choosing a hotel destination, second only to price. This correlates with a report by the Center for Hospitality Research at Cornell University that finds a one-point improvement in online reputation, such as moving from three stars to four stars, can yield a bottom-line increase of 39 percent in revenue. For a hotel with 100 rooms, an average daily rate of $125 and 90 percent occupancy, this could translate to more than $1.6 million per year.

While guests are more likely to post online if the experience was at odds with their expectations - whether favorable or not - the technology supporting a hotel's guest experience can mean the difference between complaints and five-star reviews. With the MiVoice 400 platform, hotels can deliver personalized guest communications, efficiently address operational and maintenance issues, and exceed expectations beginning with the very first impression.
