Nadler Hotels commissioned QDOS-sbl to provide a Converged IT and Telecoms platform to meet the requirements of this leading central London hotel.

A Mitel MiVoice 3300 MXe Hospitality Telephone System was installed to provide a scalable, reliable communications platform in order to offer guests a faster, more personalised service. The system incorporates small gestures that make a big difference, like remembering guest names and preferences and providing timely service whilst protecting their privacy at all times by integrating with the innovative Guestline hospitality property management solution.

For instance the Mitel MiVoice 3300 MXe platform frees staff from their desks with mobile solutions that let them serve guests, complete tasks and stay in touch while on the move. With a mobile app that’s customised for a hotels processes and property features, staff can work and communicate in real time, no matter where they are on the property, giving them freedom and flexibility to streamline workflows, reduce staff workloads and accelerate service.

In addition, the Microsoft Office 365 Business subscription service includes access to Office applications (Word, PowerPoint, Excel) and online productivity services, as well as business services such as web conferencing, hosted email, and online storage.
