In Minneapolis this week during HFTP's HITEC 2013, MokiMobility, an emerging purposed mobile device management start-up, unveiled details behind a strategic partnership with Uniguest Inc., a total content and device management leader, to collaborate on leveraging mobile and tablet technologies to enhance the experience of hospitality consumers across the globe.
For more than 27 years, Nashville-based Uniguest has been elevating customer satisfaction by providing guests at the world's top hotels with access to important, timely and useful information through guest-use lobby computers, digital signage and boarding pass printing devices, along with providing localized intelligence on restaurants, entertainment venues and tourist attractions. Uniguest clients include many of the leading global hospitality brands, such as Hilton Worldwide, Marriott International and Choice Hotels International.
MokiMobility has been very active during the first half of 2013. In April, the Utah startup announced it secured more than $2 million in seed funding in conjunction with a partnership with Revel Systems to provide the first mobile point-of-sale application to meet the PCI Security Standards Council's newest set of compliance guidelines.
MokiMobility's relationship with Uniguest represents a positive strategic move for both companies, at a time when the hospitality, retail and health-care sectors are seeing increased demand for advanced mobile and tablet consumer-facing technologies.
