Seattle, Wash June 26, 2013

Hotel 1000, downtown Seattle's premier luxury hotel and world leader in hospitality technology, announced today it has partnered with UIEvolution, a global leader in connected screen solutions, to deploy UIEvolution's cutting-edge technology platform Guest Evolution™ to hotel clients. This newly formed partnership strengthens Hotel 1000's overall goal of being the world leader in hospitality technology by connecting screens of all types - mobile, tablet, digital signs, on-premise TVs - to create an unmatched mobile guest experience.

As guest engagement continues to be center stage within hospitality, Hotel 1000 and UIEvolution begin phase one of providing solutions to enhance the overall guest experience and create memories that strengthen hotel loyalty. The partnership will provide hoteliers with a sophisticated solution that will enable them to expand their visual communications beyond public signage to in-room TV, mobile devices and more.

"Our mission at Hotel 1000 is to provide the highest level of service and state-of-the-art technology to enhance the guest experience," said Denny Fitzpatrick, general manager, Hotel 1000. "Our partnership with UIEvolution enables us to offer to our guests the ability to utilize their in-room television in a fun, interactive and engaging way, thereby enhancing the guest experience."

UIEvolution's Guest Evolution platform delivers an easy-to-use solution that will differentiate the Hotel 1000 brand, create personalized experiences for guests, and provide new revenue opportunities. A standards-based platform for managing content and information between guests' mobile devices and Hotel 1000's digital signage and on-premise TVs, Guest Evolution will connect these devices together so that the TV and signage can enable the mobile guest experience.

"Guest interaction is an integral part of the Guest Evolution solution,"says Chris Ruff, CEO and President of UIEvolution. "The hospitality vertical has always focused on the guest experience and UIEvolution understands the importance of this. The more guests engage with content, the more they connect with a hotel brand. Partnering with Hotel 1000, a world leader in hospitality technology, is a tremendous honor. It fortifies our view that digital signage in the hospitality vertical is more than stationary messaging; it is part of an overall strategy that connects digital signage, in-room TVs and mobile technology."
