Eleven Wireless Announces New Business Center Computer Solution
NEW YORK, New York (PRWEB) November 18, 2005
Eleven Wireless, a leader of software for managing public-access hospitality broadband networks, today announced ElevenBC, a new lobby and business center computer solution. ElevenBC offers hotels the ability to deploy an elegant all-in-one computer that guests can use to access email, applications and the Internet, as well as print in high-quality color and black-and-white.
ElevenBC is the first business center solution that caters to both Windows and Mac users.
ElevenBC runs both Microsoft Windows XP and Apple Mac OS X, and includes generally used applications including Microsoft Office. Guests pay for computer use and printing by swiping their credit card. Broadband Internet access is included. ElevenBC is a turnkey solution that ties into Eleven’s on-demand broadband billing software, ElevenOS, thereby enabling centralized reporting, management, troubleshooting and updates.
“We have been working for quite some time to standardize our business centers and lobbies with computers for guest access,” said Andrew Furrer, Director of IT for Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants. “ElevenBC fits the description of what we were looking for, and we look forward to deploying the product as a standard at all our properties.”
The ElevenBC product is based on an Apple 20” iMac G5, and runs both Mac OS X and Windows XP Professional. Users can switch between the two operating systems while in a paid session. Microsoft Office applications are available for use with both operating systems, in addition to games and other entertainment programs. Included in the offering is an HP 2550 color laser printer, available to use for a fee on a per-printed-page basis. Hotels can deploy ElevenBC in their existing staffed business centers, or put the new solution in other areas of the property that are not staffed.
ElevenBC is the next step in Eleven’s product strategy and takes advantage of the company’s software expertise in the hospitality industry, states Josh Friedman, co-founder and VP Marketing for Eleven. “By listening to our customers, we realized that there is a vast untapped opportunity to deliver a well-integrated, flexible and reliable business center computer.” He continues, “ElevenBC was developed with hotels in mind, and is integrated with our existing on-demand broadband billing and management product, ElevenOS. This means that network service providers can deploy this product and integrate with existing broadband networks.”
“Eleven has made strong progress in the hospitality industry with their software in 2005,” said Skip Rafferty, Director of Strategic Partnerships, RoomLinX, Inc., a leading hospitality network service provider. “The ElevenBC product, in conjunction with ElevenOS, provides NSPs with a complete broadband solution for guests traveling with or without laptop computers. Their solution fully addresses this market need, and we are happy to be working with them.”
ElevenBC is immediately available directly from Eleven, or through its partners. Please contact Eleven for more information.
