OTRUM Enriches Guest Experience at JW Marriott Hotel Ankara

OTRUM_logoOTRUM is proud to announce the successful installation of OTRUM Enterprise and OTRUM Digital Signage at the JW Marriott Hotel Ankara, Turkey.

The JW Marriott Hotel Ankara is the latest addition to the Marriott Group’s portfolio of exclusive hotels, offering 5-star luxury accommodation services and extensive conference facilities in Ankara’s thriving business district.

Recognising and valuing individual guests is paramount to success in high-end hotels, and JW Marriott Hotel Ankara has embraced this whole-heartedly. Through OTRUM Enterprise, each and every guest is treated as an individual and their in-room service offering is adapted to their needs. OTRUM has delivered a first-class guest experience that reflects the hotel’s own visual branding to make the guest stay a seamless Marriott experience. OTRUM Enterprise works in harmony with the Philips TVs chosen by the hotel.

Commenting in ‘SMARTreport Hotel Innovations & Technologies March 2011’, Mr. Khaled Al Jamal, Opening General Manager of JW Marriott Hotel Ankara, stated “Our decision to choose Philips and OTRUM was based on their flexibility and adaptability. OTRUM has a fantastic new line of products which offers not only entertainment and TV channels, but also allows us to communicate with our guests and employees. Both parties’ flexibility and true willingness to work together on our project made it easy to choose for these leading suppliers.”

Ms. Dana Skaustein, OTRUM’s Account Director, states “JW Marriott Hotel Ankara is set to be the best hotel in the region, and therefore needs to have first-class technology to meet and exceed guest expectations. We see our success at the JW Marriott Hotel Ankara as an important step in the development of our relationship with Marriott, and it gives confirmation of our partner status.”
