Hoist Group listed as a recommended WiFi provider in France

ProAchat, the leading central contracting agency for independent hotels with over 1150 members in France, has listed Hoist Group as a recommended supplier for WiFi solutions. Following this decision, five Best Western® hotels in France have already entrusted Hoist Group with their new WiFi networks.

As the number of customers connecting to Internet keeps growing at an ever fast pace, reliable guest Internet services are becoming a key challenge for hoteliers. Advanced solutions anticipate the exponential growth in demand for bandwidth while giving the hotelier tools to personalise the digital guest experience.

“We are convinced that Hoist Group offers leading edge solutions to the industry also in this domain”, says Zlatan Milutinovic, director of equipment purchasing at ProAchat. “We recommend Hoist Group to all our members looking for a WiFi partner.”

In addition to WiFi, Hoist Group is already referenced by ProAchat for its Property Management System, HotSoft, and its TV solutions.

“This combination of competences is unique in our industry”, explains Antoine Trannoy, Managing Director of Hoist Group France, adding that “the recent acquisition of Swisscom Hospitality Services, a Telecoms operator specialised in the hotel business, allows us to be a complete solution provider for the hotel and the health care sectors.”

“Thanks to this acquisition, Hoist Group can now offer its innovative applications such cloud-based PMS, interactive TV and mobile guest communication in combination with network solutions and the operation of the hotel’s technical infrastructures.”

The new brand Hoist Group has resulted from the combination of HoistLocatel and Swisscom Hospitality last June. The new group has 600 employees, about 200 of them employed in France.
