RICHARDSON, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Enseo® experienced a record year of explosive growth in 2016. In the process of more than tripling its portfolio of hotels that have chosen Enseo as their technology services provider, the company set an impressive pace that is continuing into 2017.
Enseo provides a suite of technology-based services into commercial locations such as hotels that include in-room entertainment, wireless network solutions (Wi-Fi /HSIA), and digital signage to more than 30 brands from the world’s largest hotel chains. Starting with over 100 properties as of the end of 2015 for TV or Wi-Fi services, Enseo increased installations by 300% to more than 400 hotels by the end of 2016. With hundreds of additional hotels already contracted in Q1 so far, Enseo is only getting started.
Enseo’s network reached more than 20,000,000 people throughout 2016. During this time, hotel guests consumed over 4.7 million hours of OTT (streaming Over-The-Top) entertainment through Enseo’s platform, proving unequivocally that guests prefer to watch their own content that they bring into the room with them.
Enseo’s rapid growth also extended internally to align with the company’s vision for the future. With major investments in staffing, systems, development, and expanded hospitality product lines, Enseo is prepared to meet the growing demands of 2017 and beyond.
“This growth did not take us by surprise,” said Vanessa Ogle, CEO and founder of Enseo. “We have been working hard to plan for success. My team at Enseo has taken a disciplined approach to consistently invest and deliver the best technology and service to the hospitality market for almost 2 decades. It is gratifying to see those hotel brands, the owners and managers of those properties choose Enseo time after time. We must keep our eyes looking forward to continued execution on innovation both in technology and service.”
2016 also marked important relationships with Enseo. In August, the company announced its expanded agreement with Netflix as an approved in-room entertainment integrator to offer the Netflix® app to any hotel in the world where the Netflix service is available. Millennium Hotels and Resorts® also completed a nationwide upgrade to all technology services, including HSIA, Wi-Fi, and guest room entertainment in all US-based hotels through Enseo.
Enseo is the fastest growing technology services provider with a 17-year history of delivering sustainable innovation for the world’s largest hotel groups. The Enseo solution includes free-to-guest content, hotel branding, remote monitoring and management, robust guest features, Wi-Fi, digital signage and more. Enseo enables hotels to engage more deeply with their guests by providing them with more unique content choices such as Over-The-Top (OTT) applications, on-screen weather and flight data, and Bluetooth® connectivity all through the guest room TV. Enseo is the first hospitality integrator to license and deploy Netflix®, Pandora®, YouTube®, Hulu® and Crackle®.
