CW Business launches new cutting-edge platform at industry event at the Blue Haven Resort

PROVIDENCIALES, TURKS AND CAICOS ISLANDS – November 21, 2017 – The face of television is changing with Cable & Wireless Business, as the region’s leading telecommunications provider has unveiled a new product specifically geared towards TCI’s leading industry.

C&W Business launched its new cutting-edge integrated Next Generation Hospitality Interactive TV in Turks and Caicos at an industry event hosted at the Blue Haven Resort, aimed at making the hospitality sector more globally competitive to meet the demands of the “connected guest.”

A bespoke solution, C&W Business Hospitality Interactive TV can be tailored to an all-inclusive resort, business hotel, luxury, or small property. It can be fine-tuned for the guests the property most commonly serves: whether families, young travelers, adults only, or business travelers.

The present demands of today’s travellers in this vast industry with an expanding cluster of world-class luxury hotels deserves a world-class solution, and Cable & Wireless is here to deliver,” said Flow TCI, Country Manager, Delleriece Hall.

CW Business Sales Manager, Joanne Missick added: “We are very proud of where we are today and we are very much excited about where we are headed. As an organization, we have the vision, the knowledge, and the experience to pave the way to the future.”

With a larger selection of channels, inclusive of high-definition content, integrated digital signage that encompasses every screen on the property, and a dedicated hotel channel to guide visitors to restaurants, bars, and other on-property amenities, the solution can be delivered via analog, digital or full end-to-end Internet Protocol Television (IPTV).

Basic packages comprise either 29 or 65 channels, whilst Add-On Packs enable the guest to stay connected with the latest sports, movies, or news, or provide entertainment for the family, by signing on for Movie Pass, Fox Pass, Kids Pass, Sports Pass, or Global Pass.

Additionally, the new Interactive TV solution comes with 24/7/365 proactive monitoring and support by a team of Cable & Wireless technology experts, which allows them to remotely troubleshoot any potential issues.

Vice President, B2B Sales Operations, Boris Kluck, remarked: “The Hospitality industry is an incredibly competitive marketplace and while there is no doubt about the natural beauty of the Turks and Caicos, it is critical that you differentiate your properties in order to stand out from the many other choices that travellers have.”

Kluck further stated that, “Increasingly, what our research tells us is that your guests’ digital stay is becoming just as important as their actual physical stay – ensuring that you have the right technology solutions to meet the digital demands of your guests will be an important factor of differentiation when they are making the important decisions about their next vacation. C&W Business continues to invest in the hospitality sector as we recognize its importance to economic growth in the region.  We are committed to providing world-class technology solutions that will help you deliver an unparalleled guest experience.”

The workshop today saw a number of key representatives from the hotel sector, including Director of Tourism, Mr. Ramon Andrews who provided a positive and encouraging overview of the status of the hospitality industry following the passing of the recent hurricanes.

Andrews stated, “It is no secret that we are definitely blessed in Turks and Caicos despite everything that we came through, as it relates to two storms, Irma and Maria. We find faith witnessing people put themselves aside and focus on the goal of understanding that there is a much bigger picture here. I think if we continue to approach everything the way we have approached this devastation, I think that we will continue to be successful in Turks and Caicos.”
