DJUBO, a SAAS platform for hotels, has launched an innovative initiative – The DJUBO MarketPlace (http://market.djubo.com) – A curated selection of products and services integrated with DJUBO.
The first such partnership under the DJUBO Marketplace umbrella is with i2e1 – a leading Wi-Fi management platform.
Seamless and reliable Wi-Fi experience is a major ask across every hotel today and a poor Wi-Fi experience of guests immediately leads to guest dissatisfaction.
Hotels who use a regular Internet Service Provider, without any Wi-Fi management platform, always feel that no matter how much they spend on their bandwidth access, the guest experience is always sub-optimal and their broadband plan runs out before the end of the month and they end up topping up their broadband plan with higher expenses but no improvement in guest experience.
The issue lies in lack of awareness about Wi-Fi bandwidth management and control. With the partnership between DJUBO and i2e1, DJUBO client hotels can now control or block pornographic content, block heavy streaming websites, prevent their Wi-Fi misuse due to password theft, block unwanted staff users, allow limited Wi-Fi to non-room guests, throttle bandwidth allocation and equally distribute it among guests and to top it all allow seamless Wi-Fi connectivity to guests who are already checked in through DJUBO’s platform.
It addresses a hotel’s Wi-Fi hassles forever to ensure that the hotel’s room guests get superior Wi-Fi Experience. Another major issue this partnership solves for hotels is that providing Public Wi-Fi without verification of users is legally non-compliant as per TRAI norms. This partnership helps hotels ensure that they follow legal requirements for Public Wi-Fi as well.
Rajan Nanda, AVP Sales & Marketing at DJUBO commented during the launch “DJUBO Marketplace is an effort to evolve and trigger innovation in the hotel tech ecosystem by providing cutting edge products and services to DJUBO’s client hotels through integrations with DJUBO’s core product offerings for hotels. While as DJUBO we have our own tech road map for building an integrated tech platform for hotels to help them CONNECT – ENHANCE – MAXIMISE their revenue and yield through a bunch of sales management, channel management, reputation management, rate intelligence and yield maximization offerings. We keep coming across other exciting startups in the hotel ecosystem that are solving specific pain points for hotels. i2e1 is the one such company that solves seamless Wi-Fi management for hotels to enable superior guest experience.”
Gaurav Bansal, co-founder, i2e1 added” Seamless Wi-Fi at the hotel is the top ask from travelers and guests. It has direct impact on customer experience and feedback. Hotels with good Wi-Fi experience get 30% higher rating compared to those without it. However, there has not been a product which could cater to the growing demand of hoteliers. It required a futuristic solution with best in class technology and affordable price point. This partnership brings all these and much more. There were strong synergies between DJUBO and i2e1 as both are leading cloud based players in their respective category. We are happy that our joint product would solve problems of millions of hoteliers out there.”
