Future-proof ICT framework for Starwood
- IT Solutions
American property investment firm Starwood Capital Group acquired two properties located in the emerging London areas of Bermondsey and Earls Court, each to comprise of nearly 500 units upon completion. The units feature apartment-like amenities including full kitchenettes, living and dining rooms. In addition, the hotels will offer over 25,000 square feet of commercial and office space, including many new guest amenities such as social lobbies, lounges and gyms.
Starwood appointed QDOS as the IT and Telecommunications designer, adviser, supply and commissioning consultant for the hotels. With the properties having been built in 2008 a comprehensive technology refresh was required. Recognising that guests may be staying for longer than a single night, the in-room technology must offer a home-from-home experience, or better, and the back-office systems must meet the current demands of busy extended-stay hotels, with a flexible future upgrade path.
QDOS designed a futureproof ICT infrastructure, and arranged manufacturer pricing support under a competitive framework pricing structure that includes:
BT Installation Network Services – SIP Internet Telephone Lines and 200/1000 Leased Line & 100mb Backup
Mitel MiVoice Telephone System with Voice over WIFI Phones
Hotel IT Local Area Network

Oracle Property Management System
Micros Simphony EPOS Software & Terminals
Samsung SMART TV Solution
Ruckus WIFI Internet
Access Control System
CCTV and Cabling
