InnSpire has completed the company's first foray into the Latin American market through a strategic partnership with telecommunications specialist Nimbus Networks.

The new regional reseller/distributor partnership has already resulted in Nimbus Network's installation of InnSpire's suite of networking and guest-facing technology in four hotel properties in Peru: the AC CostaVerde in Lima, the Aloft Miraflores, the Westin Miraflores and the Casa Andina Premium San Isidro.

Grupo Libertador, owner of three of the Peruvian-based properties that implemented the InnSpire solution, cited the company's innovation as well as Nimbus' reputation in the Latin America market as primary reasons for its decision.

"As the region's most important operator of Marriott properties, and the largest hotel chain in Perú, we seek to always be at the forefront of good service offered to our customers,” Juan Carlos Vega, corporate IT chief of operations at Grupo Libertador, said in a statement. “With this in mind, we set out to offer a good variety of entertainment services, as well as new ways to communicate with our guests—all depending on providers that we know we can trust."

In addition to the successful installations at the first four Peruvian hotels, Nimbus Networks and InnSpire have plans in place to continue their expansion initiatives in the region to include properties in additional countries, with a special focus on Mexico, Argentina and Chile.

InnSpire and Nimbus Networks formed this partnership out of a joint need within Latin American hotels for high-end TV entertainment and in-room sales options. As part of this exclusive agreement, InnSpire will work to train Nimbus Networks' personnel to ensure an efficient installation process, while Nimbus will provide direct support to its hotel customers.
