"The team at KEYPR really connected with the vision and partnering with them really accelerated the project. Technology is always a conversation within the FF&E space and we have made great strides towards combining aesthetics with functionality and look forward to further pushing boundaries with both design and technology."REMi is highly customizable; hotels will be able to purchase the smart mirror on its own or the complete package which features a mobile app, in-room tablets, keyless entry and GEMS (KEYPR's proprietary back office Guest Experience Management System)."The team at Mirror Image has a fabulous reputation within the industry for their product quality, breadth of offering and customer service. When they came to us with this idea, we didn't hesitate.
