Marc Frauenholz, CEO at roompad GmbH says: “Speech control and artificial intelligence will be the next level of the digital hotel. Hotel guests are going to be able to communicate directly with intelligent personal assistants in the hotel room. Despite the fact it is a virtual assistant it feels much more natural to give voice commands.

Booking a table in a restaurant, ordering room service, requesting information about the hotel or giving feedback – all of these things are possible with our roompad Skill of Amazon Alexa. Controlling lights, thermostats, window blinds or TVs by voice commands gives hotel guests a completely new impression to use hotel services, smart home devices, and entertainment. The roompad Skill is available in English and German.

Currently we are working on advanced features we are going to release on Amazon Alexa and roompad is going to bring these features to the national and international hotel industry.

And according to Gartner, 3.3 percent of the world’s households will have by 2020 an intelligent virtual assistant.
