Quadriga Worldwide announced today it has completed its integration of the NXsystems business and has officially converted the NXSystems and NXTV brands into Quadriga Americas effective March 1, 2013. This completes the UK-headquartered company‟s effort to align itself with its corporate hotel brands and their efforts to partner with a single technology partner to enhance the guest experience across multiple continents. Quadriga is now uniquely positioned with operations in the US, EU, Africa, Middle East and Asia.
Quadriga brings more than 30 years of experience in the hospitality sector to the US market. The company has long been known outside the US for its large installed base of IP over Coax hotel rooms, its proven track record with major brands like Accor, Starwood, IHG and Marriott, and its strong financial performance and strength which includes no external debt.
NXTV has operated since 1999 when it installed the first IPTV system in a U.S. hotel. NXTV serves major hotel brands throughout the U.S. and Asia, including Four Seasons, The Atlantis, and Rosen Hotels. The company is known for its cutting edge solutions for delivering content on-demand to its hotel partners, and was one of the first providers to introduce IPTV services to the U.S. hospitality market.
Quadriga Worldwide, based in the United Kingdom, purchased NXSystems and its assets in September 2011. The integration completes a 18-month process to integrate sales, marketing, finance and operations into Quadriga‟s global operations under the Quadriga brand. “We are very excited about the future of our U.S. and global operations,” said, Chris Sophinos, CEO of Quadriga Americas. “Quadriga is keenly positioned to bring new services, business models and expertise to our hotel partners to help them expand their networks and guest services and better future-proof their operations. Our new Personal Media Network™ mobile application is a prime example of our ability to think strategically when it comes to enabling new guest services that ride on an optimized network design.”
Quadriga‟s Personal Media Network™ mobile application was awarded HTNG‟s „Most Innovative Technology Award 2012‟ at this year‟s HTNG North American conference, which just wrapped up last week in Atlanta, GA. (See separate release: QUADRIGA’S PERSONAL MEDIA NETWORK™ WINS HTNG’S MOST INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY AWARD 2012.) Quadriga, the hospitality industry‟s leading integrator of network applications and in-room entertainment systems, with offices in the USA and throughout Europe, services hotel properties in more than 50 countries. The company introduced its Personal Media Network™ (PMN™) solution at Hitec 2012 in Baltimore, MD, USA. PMN was jointly developed by Quadriga‟s US and EU teams and is testimony to the strength of the company‟s combined efforts and operations.
Said Quadriga‟s Group CEO, Roger Taylor, “Quadriga and NXSystems share common traits of introducing industry firsts like IPTV and IP over coax solutions. Combining the skill sets of both companies and employing the best of the best will be a tremendous resource for our hotel partners. We look forward to sharing our combined efforts with our U.S. partners.”
Although the formal name of the company is effective March 1st, customers will not be impacted and emails and telephone numbers will remain in effect until the company transitions its full communications during the next few months.
“Each of our customers will receive correspondence from us outlining the specifics of the name change,” said Sophinos. “This will be a seamless transition that will enable us to enhance our products and services and better position our global Internet and network services, TV and mobile platforms, multimedia and content products and professional services, which are the core groups our global brand encompasses.”
