  • Dubai’s SB Group unveils new era of smart integrated property management solutions for hospitality industry

    Published on November 18, 2021

    The Dubai-based Sanjeevv Bhatia Group, along with its subsidiaries Netix Controls, ODS Global, and Teknoware, made waves at Dubai’s Stakeholder Conference 2021 organized by The Hospitality Network,  by showcasing their state-of-the-art smart innovations in property management.

    UAE: The Sanjeevv Bhatia (SB) Group, a leading holding company in the UAE, featured its smart property management and system integration solutions for 200 key stakeholders from the hospitality industry, as part of The Stakeholder Conference 2021 hosted by The Hospitality Network – an invite-only event that was held from 26-28th October at the Lapita, Dubai Parks and Resorts.

    The SB group gave stakeholders the opportunity to witness the revolutionary products and services brought to market by Netix Controls, a smart building management solutions provider; ODS Global, a smart systems integrator; and Teknoware, an intelligent emergency lighting manufacturer; in an exclusive “Experience Room”, set up for the event. The displayed automation solutions are implementable in both Greenfield and Brownfield projects, for seamlessly connected, monitored and managed buildings. The demo wall included a live command and control center (iICCC) – which is a nerve center for smart city solutions – for interested stakeholders that included developers, facility managers, consultants, and fit out companies. The stakeholders also included prestigious international hotel chains with a portfolio of both existing and new properties across the globe.

    Also on display were integration capabilities of various systems with the  Netix Konnect iIBMS platform. The featured solutions included state-of-the-art Wi-Fi enabled and remote operatable thermostats designs that minimize hardware dependence; and the interplay of hardware and software to achieve seamless GRMS workflow, with guests able to see utilities consumption monitored and tracked on a live screen.

    “The SB Group was able to give stakeholders a live demo of the massive integration-enabled advantages they can unlock, for their hospitality properties”, says Sanjeevv Bhatia, Founder and CEO of the SB Group. “The average hospitality property is dealing with 40 to 50 vendors, from whom they have sourced embedded systems. As opposed to many tier-1 service providers, who charge minimum $500,000 to millions of dollars to simply onboard these assets to a single platform; the SB Group’s solution for such system integration is within the grasp of even SME businesses, regardless of whether the property is a new project, or an existing one”.

    Visitors to the Experience Room were able to witness a live demonstration of the Netix Konnect platform’s real-time alarm generation, as well as utility consumption and energy monitoring capabilities; in addition to features that enhance asset lifecycles. Also showcased were the Netix iICCC – a single window access to real-time smart city data with energy management, data analysis, security, fault detection and diagnostics, and many other capabilities – which enables business intelligence, Big Data analysis, and IoT integration for an entire city, using powerful analytical dashboards.

    In the context of the hospitality industry, Netix Controls is not only able to integrate GRMS, BMS, but also program it to remember a particular guest’s preferred settings – including energy consumption, real-time usage, preferences, and more – which are automatically shared whenever the guest checks in next. This makes it possible to anticipate and manage energy usage, in addition to providing highly personalized services. Likewise, the Teknoware emergency lighting systems that the SB Group has introduced in the region, are the first brand that can be seamlessly integrated with any BMS; as well as having the capacity to be implemented as a self-contained system. The emergency lighting system includes assets that vary from stylish designer components, to robust emergency lighting that can withstand the harshest environments and conditions.

    “The opportunity to demonstrate Netix Control’s connected approach, ODS Global’s Multi-source Service Integration (MSI), and Teknoware’s revolutionary lighting systems, live, for the crème-de-la-crème of the industry was a brilliant opportunity for the SB Group”, Sanjeevv adds.

    “We have already been inundated with enquiries and strong interest from the visiting stakeholders and their organizations, I strongly believe that The Stakeholder Conference 2021 will be a turning point, for the hospitality industry, as well as sustainability and smart services goals set for the region”, Sanjeevv Bhatia concludes.
