Virgin Hotels has turned to the Velimo connected infotainment platform. The mobile IT solution provides digital content, smart room control options and interactive services for a new travel experience.
In view of the dynamic development of mobile technologies, the project partners chose to go with the Velimo infotainment system at the flagship hotel in Chicago. The guest service portal connects mobile devices, televisions and the room’s control system. A Virgin Hotels branded app called Lucy, acts as a user interface, allowing hotel guests to transform the most common smartphone models into their personal hotel assistants.
Guests can use the Lucy mobile solution to operate the television, change the room’s temperature, book services or request amenities from reception. Hotel staff can use the app to inform guests. Velimo was developed with tourism in mind and tailored to Virgin Hotels’ processes as part of the project. Velimo’s architecture is designed for flexible expansion as needed.
