Acentic Partners with Bose to Add High Quality Audio to Product Portfolio

By Miguel Leiva-Gomez November 28, 2012

Hotel entertainment is generally not something you look forward to. Usually, it consists of a mediocre flat-panel screen with a remote control. Nothing's really all that impressive about it. Acentic is one of those companies that fixes these problems, providing hotels with the means to entertain their guests in new and dynamic ways. You still get the TV and remote, but the system is meant to ensure that your senses are properly catered to. And now, Acentic is planning on getting busy with your sense of hearing with its new Bose Pro partnership.

Bose is a company that creates extremely comfortable headphones with a vibrant sound that sends a tingling sensation through your brain. Acentic plans to use Bose's highly productive experience in audio to add some kick to its entertainment system offering. Bose's technologies will be seen in Acentic's hotel TVs, digital entertainment systems, and information solutions for conference halls, rooms, and shared recreational areas. The company currently provides smart TV and high-speed Internet access to 230 thousand hotel rooms in large names like Accor, Hilton, IHG, Marriot, and Starwood.

"Acentic was chosen to join our European Pro Partner network because of the similar business ethos to Bose and its commitment to quality," said Sue Harrison, Bose's business development manager, in a statement. "Acentic will receive regular specialist product training and access to a wide range of tools and technologies in return for its commitment to the brand, and we look forward to developing the relationship."

Acentic has already rushed the installation of Bose-enabled entertainment systems within Novotel and Ibis hotels in London. The product is known as "Ambient," and now incorporates Bose's sound and control technology, delivering the best in high quality audio.

Richard Robinson, chief executive of Acentic, also commented on this new partnership adding, "Bose sets very high standards for accreditation of its Pro Partners, so this is testament to the quality of our work and the passion and dedication of our teams. The partnership with Bose comes at an exciting time of growth for Acentic, which is strengthened by having a worldwide brand behind us, and we are looking forward to working together."
