MokiMobility and Uniguest Unveil Strategic Partnership at HITEC 2013 in Minneapolis Companies hoping to advance mobile and tablet device management to help hospitality brands engage with guests
MINNEAPOLIS, June 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- HITEC 2013 -- In Minneapolis this week during HFTP's HITECH 2013 – the largest hospitality technology event of the year – MokiMobility, an emerging purposed mobile device management start-up, unveiled details behind a strategic partnership with Uniguest Inc., a total content and device management leader, to collaborate on leveraging mobile and tablet technologies to enhance the experience of hospitality consumers across the globe.
For more than 27 years, Nashville-based Uniguest has been elevating customer satisfaction by providing guests at the world's top hotels with access to important, timely and useful information through guest-use lobby computers, digital signage and boarding pass printing devices, along with providing localized intelligence on restaurants, entertainment venues and tourist attractions. Uniguest clients include many of the leading global hospitality brands, such as Hilton Worldwide, Marriott International and Choice Hotels International.
"Together, Uniguest and MokiMobility can deliver a turn-key solution for company's looking to deploy purposed devices as a means of enhancing the customer and guest experience," said Joe Moore, Uniguest Chief Technology Officer. "Through this alliance, Uniguest can leverage MokiMobility's cloud-based mobile device management platform to complement its underlying content and device management technology, Unicore, while MokiMobility gains a full, end-to-end capable supplier to round out its leading software and management platform."
MokiMobility has been very active during the first half of 2013. In April, the Utah startup announced it secured more than $2 million in seed funding in conjunction with a partnership with Revel Systems to provide the first mobile point-of-sale application to meet the PCI Security Standards Council's newest set of compliance guidelines.
MokiMobility's relationship with Uniguest represents a positive strategic move for both companies, at a time when the hospitality, retail and health-care sectors are seeing increased demand for advanced mobile and tablet consumer-facing technologies.
"We're thrilled to be working with the folks at Uniguest," said Brad Hintze, Vice President of Marketing at MokiMobility. "Together, we feel our combined approaches to mobile and the guest experience will bring game changing technologies to the hospitality industry. We're eager to get to work and see what the next few months can bring."
Based in Lehi, Utah, MokiMobility is the first and only cloud platform for managing, monitoring and securing purposed mobile devices as mobile point-of-sale solutions, kiosks, digital signage and more. Independent software vendors (ISVs) and solution providers can integrate the management and monitoring features of MokiManage directly into their own tablet solutions running on the iPad, iPod Touch and Android devices. As a result, tablet solution customers have greater control over the complete experience, enabling more engaging and new customer experiences leveraging iOS and Android tablets in new ways.
