Together with partner company Connectum, specialized provider of commercial Wi-Fi-service, the telecom operator Gars Telecom has implemented a system project to upgrade the telecom systems of historic hotels “Budapest” and “Peter I”, managed by Mos City Group.
The full-cycle telecom solution was carried out for two metropolitan hotels: pre-project audit, market analysis and the formation of the service delivery models corresponding to the class of hotels, infrastructure and equipment upgrade.
“The large-scale project has become possible only thanks to the progressive views of the hotels' management,” - said Mikhail Sergeev, Head of marketing department of Gars Telecom. – “The managing company of the hotels made a sober estimate of the need for modernization of telecommunications and gave us carte blanche to make all the required changes. We have completely updated telecommunications, which includes the increase of internet speed up to 300 Mbit/sec, as well as the implement of unique and game-changing Wi-Fi service”.
"The task of creating a new wireless network in “Budapest” and “Peter I” was not quite as trivial because of the architectural particularities of historic buildings, as well as the additional restrictions associated with the previously used infrastructure,” - says Stanislav Itkind, Development director of Connectum.
One of the Wi-Fi-solution’s elements is the service platform of Connectum. The integration of platform with Property Management System (PMS) allows for the possibility of monetization of the Wi-Fi service with charging directly to the room number and paying the bill on departure.
"New facilities of telecommunications are acting as a notable competitive advantage of business hotels, says CIO of Mos City Group Sergey Podkladkin. - And, of course, confirming the traditional high level of service quality of the accommodation facilities of Mos City Group».
