Did you know over most of the technology of today’s wi-fi service providers was designed and built before tablets and smart phones even existed. Service providers don’t tell you this, but it is one reason why wi-fi is so high on your guest complaint list, as their systems struggle to cope. On average, 79% of devices on a hotel network are smart devices – does your current provider allow you to communicate directly to your guest on their trusted device?
Danmagi is a new type of guest wi-fi service provider that is refreshingly transparent, honest and of high quality. Our technology has been built on a new type of platform for the new communication habits of your guests, regardless of type of device they bring.
Our vision is straightforward: Reliable quality guest internet that is easy to join and really works. We will significantly reduce guest complaints on wi-fi, increase guest satisfaction and boost hotel revenues.
Don’t have frustrated guests – come have a chat with us here at IHTF.
Danmagi is a global provider of hotel wi-fi services. We have highly professional teams and offices in 3 continents; Latin America, EMEA and Asia Pacific, but can support our clients anywhere. We are built fully redundant as standard.
