– Yanolja Cloud and Samsung Electronics target the global hospitality market with first collaborative product
– Aims to drive operational and resource efficiency in the global hospitality sector with its innovative technologies
Yanolja Cloud, an AI-based cloud solution (SaaS) company, is making significant strides in its global business expansion with the introduction of ‘Y KIOSK,’ a cutting-edge solution tailored for the global hospitality market. Co-led by Jongyoon Kim and Junyoung Lee, the company has been actively acquiring global B2B solution companies to bolster its growth.
Yanolja Cloud unveiled the ‘Y KIOSK’ as its flagship collaborative product developed in collaboration with Samsung Electronics. Leveraging Yanolja Cloud’s solution expertise and Samsung Electronics’ advanced kiosk technology, this innovative kiosk solution comes as part of the ongoing B2B business agreement between Yanolja Cloud and Samsung Electronics to digitally transform the hospitality industry and provide innovative solutions that converge property solutions and smart appliances.
The newly launched cloud-based solution takes a tailored approach, optimizing the solution according to the individual characteristics and operational environment of each property. Notably, property owners will benefit from real-time software upgrades and remote maintenance and management capabilities, ensuring cost-effective access to the latest version of the solution.
Furthermore, the kiosk supports real-time synchronization of reservation statuses from various online and offline booking channels, allowing properties to achieve a more systematic and efficient approach to customer management and on-site staff operation. Walk-in customers will also be able to enjoy convenient contactless check-in/check-out experiences regardless of their arrival time or pre-booking status.
Moreover, the new kiosk incorporates enhanced identification verification capabilities which utilize deep learning-based optical character recognition (OCR) technology and pinhole cameras (CCTV) to ensure a safe and secure guest experience. Property owners will have the option of choosing between sleek stand-alone and table-top models, depending on the operational requirements of their establishments.
Jongyoon Kim, CEO of Yanolja Cloud, expressed his enthusiasm for the new launch, “By combining Yanolja Cloud’s unique hospitality solutions with Samsung Electronics’ technological expertise, we are proud to offer a smart kiosk optimized for the global market.” He further added, “Leveraging our diverse strengths, we aim to enhance the operational and resource efficiency of both domestic and global small to medium-sized business and boutique hotels, which often face challenges providing high-quality front-end services with limited resources.”
Meanwhile, Yanolja Cloud will participate in the “2023 Korea Hotel Show,” the largest hotel industry exhibition in Korea, which will be held from June 14 to 16 at COEX in Gangnam, together with Yanolja Cloud member companies, SanhaIT and Yanolja F&B Solution. The exhibition will provide an opportunity for industry professionals and the general public to explore and experience the new ‘Y KIOSK’ as well as the transformative potential of a travel environment empowered by hospitality solutions.
