InnVest Hotels and Parity Technology Solutions have signed a three-year technology services agreement for InnVest's Choice Hotels International-branded portfolio of properties throughout Canada.
InnVest Hotels is an independent owner of hotels in Canada, operating more than 80 hotel properties with more than 10,500 rooms, under franchise brands like Comfort Inn, Fairmont, Hilton, Hyatt, Marriott, Delta, and Holiday Inn.
Parity Technology Solutions recently implemented a Wi-Fi gateway upgrade in 54 Comfort hotels that are owned and operated by InnVest. Seamlessly integrating Parity's fully managed suite of IT services with each property's existing technology in just 21 days—without interruption or incident—was paramount. The integrated InnVest hotels span across Canada.
InnVest Hotels required a technology provider that was fully certified with Choice Hotels Canada, franchisor of the Comfort brand, and fully certified with Nomadix, a provider of guest-facing cloud-managed network edge devices and InnVest's preferred gateway vendor.
"Parity Technology Solutions was chosen based on many factors: their high level of professionalism, their swift and problem-free deployments, their reputation as a leading Nomadix integrator, and their presence as both a long-standing Canadian provider and a leading integrator for Choice Hotels Canada,” Mclean Xavier, VP of technology at InnVest Hotels, said in a statement. "Successfully deploying the new service to 54 of our properties in less than 21 days, without incident, assured us that we chose the right technology provider. Parity Technology Solutions now supports over 75 percent of our properties."
