INTELITY – Providing hotelier, residential, cruise, and other customers with the most advanced guest experience platform available


The hospitality industry is undergoing a transformative and collective change: a complete rethink of the guest experience for a world where human interactions, shared spaces and high-touch surfaces pose new risks. Of course, this effort to streamline the guest experience by reducing contact and eliminating friction is not new. Covid-19 has sharpened our focus on "frictionless" guest experiences and accelerated the adoption of contactless technology across all property types and categories. Hotels are using their digital transformation and redefining a new guest journey to fit into this new reality. Contactless features are now high in the list for guests who wish to limit the human interaction and self-service where possible. Guests also want to start enjoying the hotel experience without having long queues at check-in or the concierge desk. Technology will help hotels during this transformation. From the way guests check-in and out of a hotel, how they order food, make reservations, and obtain information on all the facilities and services available to them during their stay, all this can be implemented on friendly and innovative self-service experience.

INTELITY is one such firm that is the most comprehensive guest engagement and staff management platform for the hotel, casino, cruise, and luxury residential markets. The firm provides fully integrated solutions to connect better and manage a single platform's mobile-first guest experience and staff operations. With a total of over 15 years of experience providing the hospitality industry with some of the most advanced technology available, INTELITY has become the leader in guest experience and workstream automation. Founded by leaders with deep hospitality and platform technologies, the company built successive tech iterations around key elements of the digital traveler's journey.
