Mobile   The worldwide explosion in smartphone and tablet sales over recent years presents a huge opportunity for the hospitality industry at large and the F&B operation in particular. Xn protel has harnessed this technology to help our customers provide a superior service experience to their guests.  

Waiter service Superior battery life, state-of-the art wireless connectivity, low price and high usability mean that smartphones and tablets are the perfect devices for waiter service at the table or on the move. xnPOS offers a simple but functional module for use on the Android platform, with alternative options available for platforms such as Windows.  

Room service Although still in its infancy, demand is growing rapidly for in-room self-service using mobile technology, whether on the guest’s own device or supplied by the hotel.   Amongst the various hotel services available to the guest by this method, room service heads the list and offers the most significant opportunity to maximise revenue. Intuitive, well designed and easy-to-use screens guide the guest through the hotel’s menu, providing ample upsell options along the way. Orders are sent directly to the POS system and charges posted to the room account in the PMS. For more information, please contact your local office.
