Marriott International, Inc. is a leading hospitality company with more than 3,900 properties, 18 brands, and associates around the world. The company is headquartered in Bethesda, Maryland, USA.
Marriott had 199,929 employees and reported revenues of nearly $13 billion in fiscal year 2013.
Mobile is reshaping the hospitality industry. Guests use mobile for reservations, check-in, checkout, and folio services.
Printing boarding passes require connection to printers that is harder to accomplish with each guests phone. Therefore Marriott wanted to provide dedicated, low-cost boarding pass printing station to the guests.
Marriott installed custom-built Digital Kiosks that are connected to a printer. Guests enter their flight information and can print boarding passes in an instant. The kiosk wipes all personal information at the end of guest’s session. This has delighted Marriott customers and increased brand loyalty.
