Acquaint’s AmenityRecommender Achieves Oracle Validated Integration with Oracle Hospitality OPERA and is also Available in the Oracle Cloud Marketplace for Oracle Hospitality Cloud Customers

Amenity Recommender is A.I.-based concept for increasing hotel revenues through personalized on-property upsell recommendations.

30.11.2019. – Acquaint, a leading provider of A.I.-based solutions and data science services for hospitality and Gold level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), today announced it has achieved Oracle Validated Integration of AmenityRecommender with Oracle Hospitality OPERA 5.5. Furthermore, AmenityRecommender is now available in the Oracle Cloud Marketplace for Oracle Hospitality Cloud customers.

To achieve Oracle Validated Integration, Oracle partners are required to meet a stringent set of requirements to ensure solutions successfully and reliably meet the needs and priorities of the customers. This integration with Oracle Hospitality OPERA and external systems such as CRM, Hotel TV, digital signage, and voice technology allows hotels to consistently communicate up-sell recommendations to its guests, resulting in increased hotel revenues and improved guest experience.

”Achieving Oracle Validated Integration gives our customers confidence that the integration between AmenityRecommender and Oracle Hospitality OPERA is functionally sound and performs as tested,” said David Hicks, vice president, Worldwide ISV Cloud Business Development, Oracle. “For solutions deployed on-premises, in the cloud, or both, Oracle Validated Integration applies a rigorous technical review and test process that helps to reduce deployment risk and improves the user experience of the partner’s integrated offering.”

Oracle Hospitality Cloud customers can also locate AmenityRecommender on the Oracle Cloud Marketplace. The Oracle Cloud Marketplace is a one-stop shop for Oracle customers seeking trusted business applications offering unique business solutions, including ones that extend Oracle Hospitality Cloud Applications, and that have been fully tested by Oracle Hospitality to ensure success for our mutual customers.

“These integrations allow hotels to leverage benefits of artificial intelligence in their efforts to maximize guest experience and total guest value. AmenityRecommender is a unique solution that helps hotel employees, from marketing and sales, to operations, in recognizing and satisfying the guest’s interests, needs and wishes.” said Marko Lukičić, Director, Acquaint. “Acquaint’s participation in the Oracle Cloud Marketplace and recent Oracle Validated Integration further extends our commitment to the Oracle community and enables customers to easily reap the benefits of AmenityRecommender. We look forward to leveraging the power of the Oracle Cloud to help us achieve our business goals.”

AmenityRecommender – for each particular guest, considering many parameters (even over 10 hydro-meteorological parameters) – identifies the guest’s interests and intent and tries to match it with the corresponding products or services offered by the hotel. This results in a significant increase in total guest value and improvement in guest experience. The solution consists of a back-end platform for A.I. models, front-end application for receptionists and integration with Amazon Alexa voice technology. Integration with Amazon Alexa allows placing Amazon Echo speaker in every hotel room. By asking “Alexa, what can I do today”, guests can get personalized recommendations based on A.I. system. Optionally, it can be integrated with Hotel TV solution, CRM, tablets, mobile and web applications.
