CHARGIFI, WIRELESS CHARGING, AT THE DUBAI DUTY FREE TENNIS CHAMPIONSHIP. ATP TOUR
Chargifi, the market leading cloud-managed wireless charging provider has set up a Technology and Business Development hub in Belfast, in a £3.6 million investment that will create 41 jobs.
Wireless charging is here. With 85% of all phones sold this year to be wireless charging enabled, it is set to become, as The Wire predicts, ‘as uncontroversial and universally embraced as Wi-Fi’. Just as Wi-Fi was a sea-change in the hospitality industry over a decade ago, wireless charging - as a service for guests and as operational technology for businesses - is making waves in hotels.
Trends in hotel decor have shifted in the last few years. From elaborately decorated spaces designed to generate a ‘wow’ response when the guest comes through the door, the move has been toward neutral backdrops that allow the individuality of the customer to shine through.
We asked over 2,000 survey respondents how their device charging needs influenced their experience and decision-making in hotels and other hospitality establishments. This is what we found.
According to a new report released today, the market leader in the cloud management of wireless charging technology, the hospitality industry has a monumental opportunity to benefit from consumers’ insatiable desire to stay connected. Chargifi surveyed over 2,000 consumers to explore how access to power has the ability to transform the guest experience and increase footfall and consumer spend for businesses.
