Hotels Enabled to Put iPhone5 on ICE
Intelity's ICE software is fully compatible with the new iPhone 5, allaying any
apprehensions about expensive necessary upgrades by existing hotel clients.
ORLANDO, Fla., September 26, 2012 – Many hotels balked at the news that the all-new, highly
coveted iPhone 5 requires a new eight-pin, all-digital “Lightning” connector instead of the older 30-pin
connector that worked with other iPhone models. Fortunately, hotels will have no issues with using the
iPhone 5 with software from hospitality technology provider Intelity.
The company's ICE (Interactive Customer Experience™) Mobile enterprise platform, which allows guests
to access all of a hotel's guest services from Android or Apple smartphones and tablets, is fully
compatible with any version of the iPhone. Existing Intelity clients are not required to upgrade any ICE
Mobile technology. Hotels that are interested in installing ICE also will not have to decide whether to
select software that is only compatible with the a particular iPhone model.
The ICE Mobile interface will use adaptive user interface design to accommodate the larger screen size of
the new iPhone, running in a letterboxed frame. The framing is virtually unnoticeable and will not
interfere with guest access to hotel services via mobile. Guests using legacy iPhones with smaller display
screens won't see any difference in the appearance of the ICE Mobile software.
Intelity CEO and President David Adelson said, “With Intelity software, we aim to make our software
compatible with a broad range of devices, whether it's from Apple, Android or any other company. The
focus for us is providing quality software that doesn't depend on the hardware, but rather can
accommodate the needs of all of a specific hotel's guests.”
