Hotel: How to encourage guests to spend more via their in-room TV?

More than ever, hotel guest experience is a key issue in the hotel industry. So why not rely on an attractive and efficient platform to attract your guests by using in-room TVs? You are probably thinking: “should we install VOD or Netflix in our hotel rooms? we got it all”. Wrong! Let’s step it up a notch! With technology constantly evolving, the demand for remote services on the rise, it’s time to take a look at these new habits that must be considered. For example, with the current health crisis and environmental concerns, we are favoring digital content and phasing out paper media.

So, are you curious to discover our offer? This article is for you!


Optimize your guests' arrival with our back-office interface : Digital Hub

Every hotel has specific objectives to attract customers to their establishment rather than to other hotels. Being far from home sometimes imposes constraints on your business or vacation. It is therefore essential to make your guest’s stay pleasant by offering them a range of entertainment and interactive activities.

At DirectStreams, we offer two solutions to equip your rooms: DS One and DS First.

With our back-office, Digital Hub, you can configure your guests’ interface and even customize it for a specific occasion (wedding, St. Patrick’s Day, Christmas, Easter, etc.). To give your guests a warm welcome in their hotel room, a personalized welcome message always makes an impact! Thanks to the PMS and its remote connection, you and your team can set up the room.

Furthermore, the interface presented in the room works in graphic tiles per heading and can be transposed to the left of the screen or to the right in a tree-like fashion. You are free to configure the layout of the menu, choose the headings or set the number of menus. To display the hotel’s content (images, videos, slideshows…), you can integrate them as a menu in the interface and make them run in a loop, for example. It’s flexible, simple and aesthetic! 

And to top it all off, we offer you new user training to familiarize you with our service.
