Hotel concierges are usually just a phone call away, but Slate is looking to make hospitality of the future brighter by introducing the Slate Concierge app.

Slate Concierge is an in-room service that turns a suite's TV into an interactive touchscreen portal via an app. Upon opening the app, guests are greeted with a personalized welcome that features their name. From there, hotel guests are able to order room service, book a restaurant table, schedule a wake-up call and more from within this interactive interface. Hotels are also given the ability to program special promotions, products or services as needed with the Slate Concierge.

Slate's solution can be retrofitted to existing TV systems, which is a cost-effective alternative to having to buy large-scale touchscreen devices.
