Hotels get more creative with digital screens
By using digital screens, hotels are displaying digital art to please customers and keep things looking pretty. What I love about the idea of using digital screens is that it’s incredibly easy to change what is on the screen, meaning you can suit up the hotel for whatever time of the year it is, and it’s nice and bright, allowing the screens to act like a source of light. It is expensive however, and a hotel will most likely already be classy enough to be on the 5 star list before installing these new digital screens into their entry room.
Grand Strand restaurants embrace new technology
By using text messaging, restaurants can not only cut down on costs, but also provide information to customers and thank them for visiting their restaurant in a new, digitally accepting way. As an example, Drunken Jacks is now taking phone numbers from their customers and sending them texts to inform them when their meals are ready. This apparently costs $50 a month, and they won’t have to worry about losing their pagers which cost $80 each and can often go missing.
