JURYS hotel group is rolling out new technology across its network of 32 hotels in Ireland, the UK, and the Czech Republic - a new online check-in service at several UK hotels, an upgrade of its wi-fi network and improved high-speed fibre power internet services that will boost connectivity.

"We have seen the number of visits to our website from mobile devices grow by over 85pc between January 2012 and January 2013, and our mobile revenue double in the same time period.

The new systems will allow us to cater much better for these business and leisure travellers, who are using smartphones and tablets to book our room and meeting facilities," said group IT manager Shane Doyle.

Many of the hotel chain's three million annual guests now travel with up to four wireless devices.

The group is also rolling out a cloud-based reservation system that will allow it to centrally manage bookings, hotel inventory and billings for all of its hotels.
