Palladium Hotel Group has once again upped their guest bracelet game adding smart payment utility with the “Smart Very Important Bracelet” (VIB).
The company that brought social media connectivity to the guest bracelet game, now hits travel where the money is, with their latest tech advantage. Not only can wearers connect in SM, now hotel patrons can access rooms, as well as pay with a fully integrated PayPal interface. The new tech goes a long way toward making hotels stays a cash free experience, on top of never having to worry about losing a room key-card again. The VIBs allow access to a multitude of facilities and services via a personalized PIN code.
The ‘VIB’ intelligent bracelets are billed as “the future of customer relationship management (CRM) in hospitality”, biometrics ever pressingly taking precident over old validation systems. Wearable tech, outside the glitsy Silicon Valley world of Google Glass and other high profile toys, is a reality already for travelers. Juan José Calvo, Corporate Director of Sales and Marketing at Palladium Hotel Group, offered this comment via the company’s press:
“As pioneers in breakthrough technology, we have collaborated with the leading companies in information technology and communication and are proud of the talented professionals who have created such a unique experience for our guests on this year-long project.”
