Itesso develops Google Glass-assisted hotel check-in functionality

Itesso is currently developing a Google Glass-assisted hotel check-in solution and will demonstrated it at HITEC 2014 next week. This new proof of concept solution is designed to maximize efficiency, functionality and convenience during the hotel guest check-in experience. Itesso's Google Glass assisted check-in leverages the technologies available, integrating them into a best-in-class solution with the potential to redefine the industry's protocol for the guest check-in operation.

Designed to be used in conjunction with the cloud-native Itesso Enterprise Lodging System (ELS), Google Glass assisted check-in allows hotel staff to recognize a guest as they walk up to the front desk. This is accomplished by simply comparing a Google Glass-taken photo with that of the individual's profile picture on file or publicly available on sites such as LinkedIn. Once the guest's identity is confirmed, a simple voice command then completes the check-in process.
