The Hague, Hilversum – The brand new Hilton The Hague hotel has selected NEC Philips Unified Solutions as its strategic solution partner for telephony and all its other hotel communications.

Over the coming months – prior to the hotel’s opening which is foreseen for the end of April 2010 – the hotel will not only be equipped with the leading edge IP communications server UNIVERGE SV8300, but also with an integrated mobility communication solution. This solution will consist of NEC Philips’s robust and award-winning IP-DECT platform fully integrated with peripheral solutions such as rapid response and fire-alarm systems.

Interfacing with the Hilton Worldwide PMS On-Q is guaranteed by the integrated solution offered, which provides significant business benefits such as:

- Improved GOP, thanks to higher efficiency and lower operational costs as a result of the tighter integration achieved

- Increased guest satisfaction and higher RevPAR, due to the fact that the system set-up enables hotel staff to react to guests’ needs in a swift and personal manner.

Kees van Donk, Director Hospitality EMEA at NEC Philips Unified Solutions states “We are extremely proud and honoured that the leading brand of Hilton Worldwide has selected NEC Philips as their solution provider of choice, particularly as this is the only 5***** hotel to open in The Netherlands in 2010.”

Jan van der Putten, Cluster General Manager of Hilton Schiphol, Rotterdam & The Hague, adds “Our decision to select NEC Philips is based on their in-depth knowledge of the hotel-Industry in combination with a can-do approach; we are looking forward to a smooth and successful implementation and use of the system.”

John van Vianen, managing director of Getronics ICS, is very pleased that Hilton The Hague has selected Getronics and NEC Philips for this project. Van Vianen states: “There is a long-established relationship between these three parties and that gives full confidence regarding the implementation of this project”.
