leading provider of cloud-based PBX telephone and Internet solutions
San Jose, CA – June 26, 2017 – Angie Hospitality, creator of Angie, the world’s first voice-activated hotel guest room assistant, purpose-built for hotels, announces the completion of a successful integration with Fourteen IP’s EVOLUTION Voice, a leading cloud-based PBX solution powered by BroadSoft. Among other functionality enhancements, this new technology integration will allow guests of hotels equipped with both Angie and the EVOLUTION Voice system to make and receive calls using voice-command through Angie’s built in telephone and integrated Bluetooth speakers.
Fourteen IP’s Managing Director, Neil Tolley, commented, “As an industry leader in cloud-based telephony for hotels, we are always looking for ways to improve and enhance our offering. Angie fit directly into our sweet spot of both telephone and internet, allowing us to offer our clients even more interesting capabilities, such as a voice-based in-room service agent and room controls, as well as guest and group engagement.”
EVOLUTION Voice is designed to replace existing on-premises telephone systems or PBX with a virtual phone system that is hosted remotely in secure data centers, offering enhanced business continuity, flexibility and scalability. It offers a comprehensive feature set for both guests and staff, including call center and mobility applications and works with most existing bedroom telephones.
Ted Helvey, CEO of Angie Hospitality, commented, “Now more than ever before, technology is having a dramatic impact on the hospitality market and changing how hotels communicate with and serve their guests. Innovation is fundamental to both our companies, so we are delighted to partner with Fourteen IP. Through these types of partnerships, we intend to propel the industry forward in combining the powerful functionalities of telephony and Wi-Fi-based services to enhance guest satisfaction and operational efficiency.”
