Samsung Electronics and AccorHotels Group announced a partnership to roll out Samsung’s SMART Hospitality Display technology across AccorHotels’ properties, spanning 92 countries. “We are excited to partner with AccorHotels to transform the hotel experience and provide our innovative hospitality solutions to even more global consumers,” said Seog-gi Kim, senior vice president of the Enterprise Business Team, Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics.
“AccorHotels is committed to offering all of our guests – whether they stay with us for business or leisure – a hotel experience that meets their expectations and needs, particularly when it comes to technology and connectivity,” said Vivek Badrinath, deputy CEO for AccorHotels.
As the preferred display provider for AccorHotels, Samsung’s UHD displays will be available in guest rooms and common areas, including lobbies, bars and restaurants. This technology upgrade will provide AccorHotels’ on-site staff with all-in-one tools and extended flexibility to deliver a tailored and visually compelling guest experience.
This partnership also enables AccorHotels’ properties, including the Sofitel, Pullman, Novotel, Mercure and ibis global brands, among others, to have access to an array of intuitive and premium hotel solutions.
Among them is Samsung’s LYNK Hospitality Management technology, which creates a more convenient guest experience through home automation. Through the LYNK Hospitality Management platform, guests and staff receive greater control over different aspects of hotel and in-room environments, ranging from room lighting and energy use to personal services and workflow management.
Additionally, the partnership will facilitate the implementation of a cloud-based wireless printing solution as well as digital content including video-on-demand (VOD) and streaming platforms.
The preferred supplier agreement further extends AccorHotels and Samsung’s partnership to introduce modern and technologically-connected hotel concepts across the world. The two companies announced plans to design and build an experimental hotel in Seoul, South Korea, featuring state-of-the-art technology and multi-point connectivity for a more interactive guest experience.
