San Jose, CA – June 19, 2017 – Angie Hospitality, creator of Angie, a revolutionary voice-based hotel guest room technology solution, will be competing in the Entrepreneur 20X (E20X) competition, taking place during day one of HITEC Toronto on June 26 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. Angie Hospitality is one of 13 start-up contenders and will be pitching its innovative voice command solution with a four-minute presentation detailing Angie’s key features, as well as her significant impact on guest communications and back-of-house operation protocol for the hospitality industry.
The E20X competition features two eligible awards – the Judges’ Award and the People’s Startup Award. The Judges’ Award is given to the start-up deemed most innovative and is chosen directly by the judging panel, with a trophy and grand prize of $5,000. The E20X People’s Startup Award, also known as the crowd favorite, is chosen specifically by the conference attendees via the HITEC app.
“We are very pleased to have been selected to participate in HFTP’s prestigious E20X competition at HITEC,” said Ted Helvey, CEO of Angie Hospitality. “We designed Angie to solve multiple challenges that the hotel industry has struggled with for some time. Our solution presents an opportunity for hoteliers to advance their technological offerings to meet guest demands, while increasing operational and cost efficiencies — and we are confident that the E20X judges and attendees will be excited about what Angie’s groundbreaking innovation can contribute to the industry.”
Angie Hospitality officially announced its cloud-powered, interactive guest room assistant in April of this year. The enterprise-class solution is purpose-built specifically to meet the needs of the hospitality industry. Some of Angie’s key solutions include acting as a secure in-room Wi-Fi access point, serving as a 24-hour guest room assistant, offering convenient room control over things like lights and temperature, replacing the telephone, supplying a high-fidelity Bluetooth speaker and providing guest and group promotions through her interactive touch-screen.
“The hospitality industry has a growing need for seamless and affordable integration between technology and guest service,” adds Helvey. “With our team’s decades of industry experience, we’ve seen this growing need firsthand, and spent a great deal of time talking with and learning from both guests and hoteliers about their wants and needs. Based on the information we received from these conversations, we ultimately created Angie as a unified solution to simplifying operational processes, while advancing guest experiences and convenience through technology.”
Angie is currently being implemented at multiple hotel properties in the U.S. and will be available for general distribution in North America and Europe in Q3 2017.
