Selected over many global competitors, Miami’s Unified Technologies recently serviced Swire Hotels’ “EAST, Miami” branch in Brickell City Centre, initiating an immense core technology system to sustain the structure’s complex IT needs.
"We know there are numerous choices for the services that Unified Technologies provide, but it's [of] the utmost importance for us to support the economies in which we build," Mihai Bote, IT director for Swire Hotels, said. "By working with Unified Technologies, we're confident we will have the necessary backend technology to run our systems and that we are in good hands to receive top-level customer service wherever it's needed."
Among its tasks, Unified Technologies counted creating Cisco Data Centers, LAN switching, data storage and power systems. Brickell City Centre was designed with high-end condos, retail and office space in mind, along with a luxury hotel. Architecturally it encompasses several towers requiring top-of-the-line connectivity.
Unified Technologies took a modular approach, carefully selecting products and vendors to maximize the system’s potential. Thanks to established relationships with Cisco and others, the company was able to create secure, reliable connections for Swire Hotels’ latest project.
"To best provide our clients, like EAST, Miami at the Brickell City Centre, with the exact system they are looking for, we evaluate numerous best of breed vendor's products so our clients can then make the final choices for their technology needs based on solid recommendations,” Tony Silva, Unified Technologies CEO and president, said. “Our architectural approach allows us the ability to guarantee the systems will work seamlessly together while providing the necessary customer service at any given time.”
The project is expected to stimulate local economy with millions of dollars. Swire Properties Inc. employs thousands worldwide, managing “soulfully individual” hotels in Hong Kong, mainland China and the U.S.
