EventBoard Merges Property Information with Weather, News, and Real-Time Airline Flight Schedules in One Flat Panel Display
Flyte Systems, the leading provider of airport travel information displays and digital signage content for the hospitality industry, digital signage, convention centers and related businesses, announced the HITEC launch of its new EventBoard digital display. EventBoard uses only one flat-panel to display property event information along with FlyteBoard real-time airline flight information, plus weather, news, and other notices or promotions, with attractive property graphics. Flyte Systems enables hotels to provide guests with an array of valuable travel information in a single reasonably priced system.

“EventBoard meets the needs of operators who want a single cost-effective, easy-to-use, reader-board display that utilizes the same flat panel as our FlyteBoard airline flight information system,” said Scott Triphahn, Flyte Systems vice president. “EventBoard, blended within our FlyteBoard, provides guests with valuable travel information along with property meetings, way finding, weather, and traffic updates. Flyte Systems can even provide content services to insert information regarding local restaurants and other local attractions. This could clearly generate revenue for the property.”
Flyte Systems will demonstrate EventBoard in booth 816 at HITEC 2012, June 25 – 28 in Baltimore.
No other digital signage company offered what Flyte Systems delivered
“No other company offers what Flyte Systems delivers,” said Joseph Sullivan, director of engineering and security for Aimbridge Hospitality at Embassy Suites Boston Logan Airport. “Our new EventBoard is much more attractive and delivers more information than a standard reader board. We provided professional property meeting room photos and graphics to Flyte Systems and they customized our EventBoard with Embassy Suites and Aimbridge Hospitality logos. Flyte’s airline flight information is absolutely essential to our guests; this saves our front desk staff time and enables us to run a more efficient guest service operation.”
EventBoard enables operators to display and update hotel events securely from any browser. The system can be used to display property photos as a background to market meeting rooms, and professionally recognize guests and visitors. “EventBoard is ideal for today’s hotel market because it saves money and enhances guest service,” said Triphahn. “It uses only one flat panel for multiple data displays; and it frees property staff from confirming airline flight schedules while providing a great deal of property information to guests.” Flyte Systems is the only full service flight information display solution that provides real-time departure information.
