documentPercipia Early Adaptor of HTNG’s API Registry
Hospitality Technology, March 15, 2018

Chicago, IL, March 15, 2018 - Percipia, a provider of telephony solutions, software, and services to the hospitality industry, said it is proud to support and participate in the HTNG API Registry. Percipia is committed to working with hotels and other hotel technology partners to provide seamless integration and creative solutions that help each hotel property have the ability to customize their solutions.

HTNG’s API registry is the first component in a series of planned API-related projects. Each allows advanced communication and integration between products to create value in ways not currently possible.

"The API Registry will allow for HTNG-participating technology partners to collaborate more easily, and identify which companies are developing what specific new and exciting technologies that can easily be integrated with each other,” said Patrick Dunphrey, HTNG’s CIO.

According to Percipia, the API registry allows for seamless integration and effective collaboration between technology companies. In the past, this has been a reactive process initiated by a single project which would add complexity and time before deployment. However, due to the collaboration among committee members and Percipia’s commitment to making integration between various hospitality technology providers more seamless and dynamic, hotels and their technology vendors will be now be able to create a more memorable experience for the guest.

Percipia currently has three solutions listed on their API Registry page which can be found here.

  • Percipia’s Frequency PBX, is an affordable, customizable and full-featured IP phone system designed specifically for the hospitality industry.
  • Percipia’s Latitude, is a mobile and in-room application featuring extensive integration and customization. Percipia’s Latitude works with Avaya, Cisco and NEC on a SIP-based Android device.
  • Percipia’s Informant CAS, is a user-friendly call accounting which seamlessly integrates with the property management system and offers analytical call-reporting features.

The mobile app allows both Realtors and potential homebuyers to search available new homes using a variety of search terms and criteria. Summerlin is the first master-planned community in Las Vegas to launch a home finding mobile app.

Percipia Networks' newly launched Latitude mobile application product was selected to create native mobile applications for Smart Phones as well as Tablet applications in both iOS and Android platforms.

Kevin Yarnell, global director of sales for Percipia Networks states, "Percipia Networks was pleased to be selected for this game changing project. Through the collaboration with The Howard Hughes Corporation and the Summerlin team, we feel the final product launched an app that will change the way home buyers and Realtors search for new homes in Las Vegas."

Users are able to sort by neighborhoods, amenities, floor plans, and price and can utilize a map feature with driving directions to sales center locations or direct connect via email or phone to the sales agents. The application also features video options providing Realtors with the ability to review more selling features of the neighborhood and builder and with property specific differentiators.

According to Danielle Bisterfeldt, director of marketing for Summerlin, more than 90 percent of all home searches begin online. "Today, people expect to get all the information they need at the press of a button wherever they happen to be.
