TraknProtect, Sonifi team up for hospitality focus

Sonifi Solutions has partered with TraknProtect to offer the company’s real-time location technology to hotels, including employee safety devices, inventory and room tray tracking as well as vendor and service contractor monitoring. In addition, TraknProtect will leverage Sonifi’s nationwide service platform to deploy its technology solution. 
Electronic safety devices are in demand as the hotel industry steps up efforts to protect workers. In response to requests from unions and local ordinances, a number of hotel companies have committed to personal security measures for staff—a core use of TraknProtect's technology is employee safety.
TraknProtect’s solutions use Bluetooth beacon technology and a software platform that tracks the location of employee badges, wearable safety devices or tagged items in real time. Sonifi’s extensive knowledge of hotel in-room technology, operations and infrastructure allows the two companies to deliver this technology reliably with minimal service disruption.
The versatility of location tracking technology provides many benefits. Employees feel safe knowing the press of a button instantly alerts security personnel and notifies nearby staff. Plus, hotels operate more efficiently. Staff easily can find items such as cribs, carts or even a food tray recently placed in the hallway. Guests enjoy receiving requested items quickly and walking through clean, uncluttered spaces. Hotels are only beginning to find ways to leverage tracking technology.
“It’s always our goal to connect clients with technology that makes it easier for their businesses to succeed,” Roy Kosuge, Sonifi's chief commercial officer, said in a statement. “We’re excited to team up with TraknProtect to offer hoteliers the needed solutions for elevating staff safety as well as improvements to hotel efficiency and guest satisfaction.”
