Hospitality Tech

Uniquely Focused

The Ci Group aims to make it as easy as possible for customers to do business with it. This means that rather than dividing tasks between separate suppliers you can have one comprehensive service provider.

The joint venture partners behind The Ci Group have created it as a dedicated company that focuses purely on serving companies like yours. It combines expertise in areas like Audio Visual, IPTV, VOD, Digital Signage – together with other key supporting disciplines and resources – resources that are simply unrivalled for a single entity.

This enables you to have a whole range of innovative – and sometimes unique – accommodation industry solutions from one single, reliable source. Everything from Digital Signage and network installations to specially-designed hotel televisions, movie content, HSIA and even indigenous furnishings. A true ‘one-stop shop’ for ambience, infotainment and convenience. Plus you can call on The Ci Group’s service organisation for local-based support and backup wherever your premises are situated. With The Ci Group, you can also enjoy access to the most comprehensive catalogue of content available from anyone due to its strong links to the leading provider in the region.

The Ci Group is currently the only company with such a dedicated setup specific to the accommodation industry. It is therefore able to offer you that extra something to help build and boost your business.
