A world first in luxury room service
30th May, 2014 – London.
EVRYTHNG, the Web of Things software company that makes products smart by connecting them to the Web, today announces that it’s teamed up with Dom Pérignon, to launch the Press for DP service at The Savoy.
Press for DP is a connected device that allows Savoy guests to order Dom Pérignon in a beautiful and elegant way, via the push of a connected button. The concept takes inspiration from the actress and singer and loyal Savoy guest Marlene Dietrich, who would invariably request a dozen pink roses and a cold bottle of vintage Dom Pérignon to be delivered to her suite on her arrival.
The smart product is a premium, matt black, anodised aluminium unit, built with our product design partner Centreline, which contains a Flyport embedded device from OpenPicus to communicate in real-time over cellular networks with the EVRYTHNG IoT platform. The order data is converted into a voice-recorded message, alerting The Savoy’s butler to which suite has just ordered a bottle of Dom Pérignon. Further details such as what time the order was placed are also provided automatically to ensure a chilled bottle can be delivered to a respective suite within 15 minutes of the button being pressed.
Because the transaction has to be turned around within a certain timeframe, both the order details and transaction timing need to be tracked to make sure the service has high reliability and availability. EVRYTHNG’s software provides the intelligence to do this, along with the analytics to track overall engagement and sales, with the enterprise scalability and reliability needed to rollout the service in thousands of luxury hotel rooms across the world. The platform and APIs also give Dom Pérignon the flexibility to extend into other connected luxury experiences and physical/digital service propositions.
Andy Hobsbawm, CMO and Founder at EVRYTHNG commented: “Dom Pérignon and The Savoy are two brands synonymous with luxury and outstanding service experiences. We live in an age of beautifully designed consumer electronic products and experiences with elegant, simple interfaces and Press for DP manifests those principles, showing how connectivity can be put at the heart of a modern brand experience. The EVRYTHNG platform means that the data from every interaction can be applied to other consumer electronic products and digital experiences across the customer’s entire luxury travel and leisure journey.”
