March 12, 2018 – Provenance Hotels announced today its partnership with Eleven Software and Blueport Inc., both leading hospitality technology providers, to enable seamless casting from guests’ mobile devices to in-room TVs at its award-winning Hotel deLuxe in Portland, Ore. The solution brings together secure personal area networks (PANs) from Eleven and Blueport’s deployment of X2 cutting-edge casting capabilities to create an at-home experience in the guestroom.
“At Provenance Hotels, we are focused on creating guest experiences that are unique and personalized,” said Klaudio Simic, vice president of operations for Provenance Hotels. “By leveraging Blueport’s network design expertise and the ElevenOS central authentication platform, our guests can now easily stream and cast their favorite shows and content for a customized stay.”
Designed with an open architecture, X2 eliminates the cumbersome steps of downloading apps, manually pairing devices, and managing extra mechanisms imposed by other hospitality casting solutions. With X2, guests simply log onto the hotel Wi-Fi, and ElevenOS automatically connects the guest’s device to the in-room PAN. This at-home experience drives loyalty by providing guests with effortless casting.
“The X2 solution enables network discovery proxying and filtering,” said Ed Neipris, president of Blueport. “When paired with Eleven’s PAN, hotels are empowered with differentiating technology that was once costly or impossible to implement.”
“Provenance Hotels has an unwavering desire to satisfy guests and create an unforgettable hotel experience,” said Peri Pierone, Eleven CEO. “Eleven and Blueport have partnered for more than 15 years to deliver relevant technology for today’s travelers, and we’re pleased to leverage our combined solution at the Hotel deLuxe.”
As the bring-your-own-content (BYOC) trend continues to grow, giving guests an easy and secure way to binge watch their favorite shows while on the road is a true differentiator.
