Now the new IACBOX version is already a few weeks old and ready for the first patch level. Today we want to let you know what is new in terms of ARM, in addition to the usual improvements, and what trend is currently on in the hotel industry. Our guided tour through the brand new Login Page Editor will also be repeated in May - more on this below.
At the beginning of 2020, our technicians succeeded for the first time in porting the IACBOX to the ARM platform, with the aim of making our product fit for the ARM market. The RaspberryPi4 model fulfills the necessary requirements in terms of price, size and performance. With V21 (patch level 21047) we have now released a beta version of the IACBOX, which is the basis for further development towards ARM architecture. As for the sales team, this makes a great portable all-in-one IACBOX for presentations off-site.
We would like to invite all interested partners to try out the beta version on a RaspberryPi4 and give us feedback. Contact us by email or phone and we will activate the menu on your test box or send you a test version. Please note that the beta version try-out is not eligible for the regular manufacturer support of customer projects and not intended for productive use.
We chose this model because, on the one hand, it is the most prominent representative of ARM devices and well suited for tests, and on the other hand, price and performance are right. On the picture on the right you can see our prototype with its own IACBOX housing and heat sink. This 148 x 64 x 45 mm (L x W x H) small housing with a stylish cooling fin is currently reserved for internal purposes, but we still wanted to show it and are curious to hear your opinion. Initially intended as a test and demo box for the sales team, will it be a small series?
A new trend on the hotel market is the combination of work and vacation, the home office is being relocated to the hotel, with all the amenities of a vacation and all the must-haves of an office.
Whether at the workstation in the room or working on a laptop by the pool - good and stable WiFi is the be-all and end-all.
We have taken a short look on how the Holiday Office model can be supported by the IACBOX system and summarized some tips and tricks for the most important WiFi-related aspects in our blog, from the design of the login page to the creation of ticket templates.
Let us show you on Tuesday, May 11th at 11 a.m. how easy it is to adjust and adapt the standard login page with the new Login Page Editor to the needs of your customer. In this short webinar we explain how to change colors, images and fonts, create different designs for each VLAN and much more.
