How EarthBend Distribution Can Help

EarthBend has partnered with key vendors to deliver cutting-edge hospitality solutions across a broad array of technology categories, including:

  • Call Accounting:  Hospitality call accounting systems can automatically post call records to property management systems, allowing properties to track phone calls, bill guests for phone usage, reduce telecommunication costs and increase guest satisfaction.
  • Cordless/Wireless Communications:  Wireless communications solutions can provide hotel personnel with fast reliable communications that improve mobility and guest service.
  • Firewalls:  Most hospitality organizations have deployed Wi-Fi, but it is critically important to ensure a secure and reliable Internet connection for all users.  Installing and properly maintaining a firewall network security system can help protect hotels and their guests from malicious intruders and attacks.
  • Hospitality Phones:  The hospitality industry has unique needs when it comes to telephones.  Contemporary and classic phone styles can complement a range of interiors, while innovative, user-friendly features and technologies accommodate a variety of business models, property needs and other special requirements.
  • Interactive Voice Response:  Interactive Voice Response (IVR) is an automated telephony system that interacts with callers, gathers information and routes calls to the appropriate recipient.  When deployed in a hospitality environment, these solutions can provide wake up call service, concierge services, reservation support and much more.
  • Internet/Bandwidth Management:  Internet access and bandwidth management solutions allow hotels to control the amount of bandwidth available to guests. Used effectively, these solutions ensure that each user receives a fair share of bandwidth, leading to an improved guest experience.
  • Wired and Wireless Networks:  In today’s world, hotel guests regularly use video and web conferencing tools, streaming video and music applications, VoIP devices and e-mail.  Delivering a premium wireless service experience requires a high performance network, ease of access, reliability and performance consistency. It is important that organizations maintain the highest industry standards necessary for deploying a network in the hospitality market.
  • Video Surveillance:  Ensuring guest safety and protecting properties against loss are crucial concerns for the hospitality industry.  Deployment of a video surveillance system can improve hotel guest and staff safety, prevent theft and vandalism, deter employee dishonesty and reduce overall business liability risk.
