18 Aug Marriott selects Otrum as a Partner for Guest In-Room Entertainment
Otrum has been selected as an approved and certified vendor for in-room guest entertainment within Marriott hotels in Europe. Otrum Enterprise provides guests with an end-to-end Marriott branded TV experience, including direct access to Netflix via the in-room TV. Marriott is the only hotel operator in Europe authorised to provide Netflix via the hotel TV, and Otrum will provide this to guests in Europe via Otrum Enterprise. Guests also want to see their own content onscreen, and via Otrum Enterprise screen mirroring they can view their own programming, movies and content on the big in-room screen.
Mr. Stein Surlien, CEO of Otrum, states “Marriott International wants the very best for their guests. They defined stringent requirements for their Guestroom Entertainment System, and vendors were subjected to an extensive evaluation and pilot process. Marriott gave particular praise to Otrum’s ability to monitor and analyse system usage in the hotel.”
Mr. Surlien continues, “Strengthening our established relationship with Marriott is a natural progression for Otrum. Our interactive software has proved to be highly successful in Marriott properties across Europe and we firmly believe that we are the ideal partner for Marriott. We look forward to Otrum Enterprise being part of Marriott’s guest in-room experience, and in addition Otrum Digital Signage becoming a focal point of public area communications.”
Otrum’s partner network stretches across Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. All partners adhere to comprehensive Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) and Service Level Agreements (SLA), in order to deliver a consistent experience throughout all areas of operation.
Otrum is the market leading hosted solutions partner to the hospitality industry, with software operating across multiple platforms including TVs, signage and smart devices. Otrum is 100% owned by the Telenor Group, and operates with a network of strategic partners throughout EMEA and Central Asia. Additional information can be found at www.otrum.com
