Gordon Brown founder and CEO looks back to the beginning of TeleAdapt and reflects on evolving in a changing world.
For any company 25 years is a major milestone and TeleAdapt has seen many changes in the hotel industry in this time. As a bedroom start up in 1992 our focus was supporting the business traveller then connecting their laptops by modems to the telephone dialup network – dealing with the myriad of telephone sockets that exist in the world.
This was a time when hotels simply did not assist the guest. Travelers were on their own and were classed as ‘road warriors’ or mostly ‘road worriers’! Today, hotels are very much judged by their guests on the connectivity they provide for internet, entertainment and charging for the multiple devices they are bringing into the hotel rooms.
Since its beginning TeleAdapt has always focused on anticipating trends and providing solutions that meet the needs of hotel guests. We initially provided internet connectivity solutions when high speed internet access first became available in the early 2000’s. We then provided our MediaHub panels to the newly-installed flat-screen TVs ready for the BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) phenomenon. Next, we provided a variety of audio and charging solutions to meet the ever growing demand for more power outlets and mobile phone docking, responding to the guest complaints of ‘never enough outlets, always in the wrong place’!
