OMAHA, Neb., July 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- TiVUS, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: TIVU) today announced it is now live in 1200 rooms of the 1408 room downtown Philadelphia hotel property operated by Host Hotels and Resorts, and reports it is nearing completion of its inaugural TiVUS HD IPTV™ installation.
"I am pleased to report we remain on schedule for completion of the Philadelphia installation in late August," commented Shiva Prakash, TiVUS' president and chief executive officer. "The system itself can safely be called a 'hit' with both staff and guests at the hotel property.
"With hundreds of rooms operating since early this year, hard customer satisfaction data measured by number of guest issues and complaints with TV equipment have shown significantly above-average satisfaction as compared to the same period last year, while technical issues for the same period have been markedly below average with 86% resolved as user error."
TiVUS' agreement with Host Hotels to deploy its new HD IPTV systems in Host properties was previously announced in March of this year. Host Hotels & Resorts, Inc., an S&P 500 and Fortune 500 company, is the largest lodging real estate investment trust (REIT) and one of the largest owners of luxury and upper-upscale hotels.
"I look forward to soon announcing completion of Philadelphia, as well as commencement of our Omaha installation, and others," Prakash concluded.
