FoneKey “Goes Live” With Minister of State Mr. Baba Siddiqui Participating In The World’s First Deployment of The FoneKey Hospitality Suite


Friday October 19, 2007, Farmingdale, NY-FoneKey, Inc. is pleased to announce the debut of their FoneKey Technology at “FoneKey Live” on October 22, 2007 in Mumbai India. Baba Siddiqui, Minister of State, Government of Maharashtra, INDIA, will become the world’s first to use FoneKey Hospitality Suite. He will become the first ever hotel guest to remotely check in at Hotel Regal Enclave, Khar, Mumbai, get a room assigned to him, and then open that room door, all using his mobile phone, and without having to wait or see anyone at the hotel reception.

In presence of the media and dignitaries from the industry the “FoneKey Live” event is organized to take place simultaneously at the Regal Enclave and sister hotel The Hotel Executive Enclave, Bandra, Mumbai, barely a year after the accolades FoneKey’s patent pending technology received at the Global Hospitality Industry’s premier event, HITEC-2006 Technology Conference in Minneapolis, MN USA. Both of these Mumbai hotel properties become the first hotels in the world to be installed with this revolutionary new technology.

Donald Mossman, President of FoneKey is quoted as stating, “Never before has a hotel guest been able to use the same wireless hand held device to make a hotel reservation, check-in, open the hotel room door, and check-out remotely and pay his hotel bill. The guest can also operate the guestroom safe and minibar, and remotely adjust Guestroom environment in the room with his FoneKey enabled mobile phone. As a result the guest enters his room to the ambience and mood of his preference without ever having to stand in line at the front desk, or use a physical key, or a physical switch. Guest’s room preferences get stored automatically in the database with the first hotel registration. FoneKey Suite presets the ambience of the room to guest’s profile, including preferred room temperature, preferred room illumination and even the TV and music channel of guest’s choice. No more fumbling for a physical key; no more searching for the favorite channel, thermostat setting or the light switch. Additionally we will eventually be able to pay the hotel bill, keep soft copies of bills and keep track of reward points all with the same device. It is a boon for the busy executive who can eliminate one more line, one more thing to carry or keep track of. This type of technology is about to revolutionize the hospitality industry, making it easier for guests to get in and out of the hotels all the while being more comfortable while they are in the room. For worldwide hospitality chains FoneKey is a comprehensive approach to compliment today’s mobile life style of hotel guests. Maintaining a global loyalty was not so easy and amazingly effective. Attracting more and more guests to its loyalty program is a built in benefit hoteliers worldwide.”
