Intelity has integrated its platform with BluIP, a provider of cloud-based connectivity and communication solutions. This integration removes the need for analog phone solutions in guestrooms and the back office by making BluIP’s VoIP services available to guests and staff via Intelity’s tablets. 

Intelity and BluIP now allow users to place external, guest-to-guest and guest-to-staff calls through in-room tablets. By implementing this technology, properties can replace outdated landline phones, which helps streamline and declutter guestrooms, minimize system maintenance and reduce costs. In addition to cost reduction, using VoIP tech provides carrier-grade communications from the back office into the guestroom and allows properties to bring all their communications onto a single, unified system. 

“The industry is ready to move to all-in-one devices rather than a traditional phone in the room,” BluIP CEO Armen Martirosyan said in a statement. “This integration is a step toward that reality and combines functions for guests into one device, still giving them the ability to communicate within the property by leveraging Intelity’s in-room tablets and BluIP’s carrier-grade global platform.”
