wi-Q Technologies has announced support for Media Carrier’s Media Box, a virtual library containing national and international newspapers and magazines. Venues with wi-Q or Mi-Room can now further enhance the customer or guest experience through a customisable portfolio of international and national newspapers and magazines, available to download instantly. Available titles include The Times, Wall Street Journal, Top Gear, Elle, Men’s Health and Vogue.
Like wi-Q and Mi-Room, Media Box is a web-based service and can be accessed via any Internet-enabled device. The customer does not have to install an app or register personal data. The desired publications can be downloaded with a click, in PDF format. Individual articles can even be magnified, and the pages scrolled or swiped.
Patrick King, Media Carrier UK Commercial Director said:
“It is fantastic to collaborate with wi-Q. Both companies have a clear vision on delivering an enhanced customer experience while driving revenues for the client.”
Graham Cornhill, Founder of wi-Q Technologies said:
“The ability to deliver additional services such as Media Box alongside our web-based mobile ordering really adds value to the overall experience for the end consumer. Media Carrier’s web-based solution integrates seamlessly into ours, giving consumers instant access to their favourite publications via their own device.”
Media Carrier GmbH was established in 2011 as a subsidiary of the Munich-based MELO Group, whose central divisions are built on the two pillars media and logistics. The company specialises in marketing and distributing digital content.
Through its digital media library Media Box, it supplies the travel industry with e-papers and more than 1000 hotels worldwide use the digital media library. The Lufthansa Group (Lufthansa, Austrian Airlines, SWISS, Eurowings and Air Dolomiti) as well as Oman Air and Virgin Atlantic are among the airlines offering the Media Box service to their guests.
