Emerging Markets

In 2018, Uniguest is expanding its solution offerings outside of our hospitality heritage into new and promising markets. This business is defined as “Emerging Markets” to appropriately depict areas in which we find there to be similar needs as the hospitality market we have been serving for more than three decades.

While Uniguest will continue to serve and address the needs of its hospitality customers, the Emerging Markets segment will continuously evolve to address the differences in client expectations. Our team is incorporating new processes and customized offerings while leveraging and extending our existing solutions to serve more industries.

Uniguest is already serving clients in retail, apartment and senior living sectors. The retail sector is seeing a great opportunity to provide their customers with public-use kiosks as revenue-generating print and on-the-go work stations. In senior living and apartment communities, there is a need for simplified mobile print and internet access as well as the opportunity to redefine the user interface and resident requirements.

Today we are just scratching the surface with installations in over 1,500 community living and retail locations, and we look forward to exploring opportunities across new and emerging industries.

There’s Tech Support, and There’s the UCrew

UCrew LogoGet familiar with our best-in-class technology support team

Imagine one of your many devices goes down. When you call for support, the phone is promptly answered, and you are greeted by a live person who is extremely knowledgeable about the situation. No long holds, no run around. This is the type of tech support Uniguest had in mind when we structured the UCrew, our best-in-class technology support team.

Based in Nashville, Tennessee, the UCrew fields questions and requests, assisting guests and customers in all facets of computer use. To make it as easy as possible to connect with a technician, the UCrew is available via phone, email, and chat messages on the Uniguest website. The team coordinates the activities and technical requirements of dependent technologies, such as networking, internet access, and manufacture warranties. Should you need to speak with your other vendors, a member of the UCrew is able to join the call so that any questions can be resolved on the front end.

In an effort to provide even better support to our customers, we are expanding our commitment to new technologies that will help us resolve issues prior to being reported. Our proactive monitoring system has been developed to notify us when computers do not appear to be working properly. With this added functionality, our team is able to begin working on the problem often before you even realize that there is one.
