Volara Provides First Voice-Based Guest Engagement Solution for the Hospitality Industry

Residents of the new senior independent living community known as Whitehall at Lady's Island will have Amazon's Alexa at their beck and call. Whitehall at Lady's Island has selected Volara's conversation management solution and secure integrations hub to seamlessly manage voice-based resident engagement in a manner that is consistent with its commitment to guest privacy and data security.

Whitehall at Lady's Island, a new project of Whitehall Development Group & Phoenix Senior Living, will be the first senior living community in the world to bring the power of voice into its residences. The solution provided by Volara - the voice hub for the hospitality industry - is managing automated voice interactions with guests at luxury hotels across the country today. While health care is central to senior living communities, just as important is quality of life — which includes providing activities and community that enhances residency. The new solution will enhance the resident experience with interactions like:

"Alexa, what time does Yoga start today?"
"Alexa, can you recommend a place for dinner with friends?"
"Alexa, can you find something for my grandkids to do today?"
"Alexa, can you ask the nurse to stop by?"

"We're thrilled to announce our partnership with Volara and the deployment of Amazon's Alexa into our properties," said Thomas Schipper, Managing Partner of Whitehall Development Group. "Making sure our residents are inspired and engaged during their time with us is our top priority. Providing a senior living solution is not just about brick and mortar. It's about building a community and improving quality of life. Our collaboration with Volara is enabling us to achieve this objective."

"Volara is proud to be partnering with Whitehall Development Group to bring voice-enabled experiences to the residents of Whitehall," said David Berger, CEO of Volara. "Alexa provides a natural and frictionless interface that can improve the quality of life for all who use it."
