Yesterday, YDreams and Montreal-based Green Vision Media hosted an event at YDreams’ Lisbon HQ to celebrate their new partnership and the launch of James Version 2.0 ™.
James was conceived as a personal mobile concierge service for guests to explore hotel facilities as well as the city they are visiting. Availabe in several different languages James lets you explore hotel amenities that range from restaurants and their menus to gyms and spas. You can also make reservations on the fly, send digital postcards and explore city highlights, anytime and anywhere.
The application runs on your iPhone or iPod Touch, but if you don’t have one, no worries because hotels offering the service will provide you with one to use during your stay when you check in. Furthermore, James 2.0 ™ takes the experience to another level with special add-ons that turn the iPhone into your room key!
James Version 1.0 was piloted as the first concierge service for the iPhone of its kind at the W Hotel in Montreal, Canada in December 2008. Due to its success, James 2.0 ™ the next generation of mobile concierge will be launched on October 29, 2009, and work on version 3.0 is currently underway. We’ll be sure to keep you posted.
