August saw the Canadian release of SmartViso, a web based application for Smartphones developed by AllViso Solutions designed to provide hoteliers with a new and innovative way to engage their guests and supply valuable information in a timely manner. AllViso supplies the hotel with a unique QR (Quick Response) scan code, when scanned by a Smartphone's camera this scan code uploads a hotel specific web application directly on to the phone. From here the guest can access property information in a format that is tailored to Smartphones. After being uploaded, this web application stays on the guest's phone even after they have left the property, making it easy for them to access the hotels information and rebook on the move. SmartViso also feeds in information from existing AllViso products like hotel conference and meeting information and local airline departures.

The Travelodge Saskatoon, the largest Travelodge in Western Canada and the second largest hotel and convention center in the province of Saskatchewan is the first property to implement this cutting edge communication solution.
