Scandic Hotels, the biggest hotel chain in Scandinavia, has started a hotel booking WAP service by utilising Nokia supplied equipment and Nokia's expertise in building the service. The members of the Scandic Club will have the opportunity to make and change their hotel room reservations through this WAP service, which is built on the Nokia WAP server. In order to meet the needs of Scandic and their customers, Nokia is able to offer a complete end-to-end WAP solution, which includes both WAP-enabled handsets and the Nokia WAP Server.
During spring the frequent customers of Scandic Hotels will also receive a special offer for the Nokia 7110 mobile phone, which is the first WAP 1.1 compliant phone currently available in the market. The Nokia 7110 offers a big display and an easy-to-use Nokia Navi(TM)Roller user interface, which allows for the fast and convenient access to WAP services.
"Scandic Hotels set an important benchmark with their innovative and pioneering WAP service. The hotel booking service demonstrates in an excellent way how WAP can give instant benefit to customers by integrating the WAP service with the existing customer care service infrastructure. The value of these types of services is greater than the sum of its components, and Nokia is happy that Scandic Hotels has turned to us and our partner Nocom Ab to provide this complete end-to-end WAP solution," says Pertti Lounamaa, Vice President, Nokia Internet Communications.
"We are proud to be the first hotel chain to offer our customers a concrete opportunity to access our services and special offers through WAP technology. This is the first step in our development of mobile services to our customers," says Roland Nilsson, President & CEO, Scandic Hotels.
