A mobile and tablet charging solution for hospitality operators has been launched by Call Systems Technology (CST).

Discgo is a portable device that charges at 1% a minute – the same rate as plugging into a wall – and can charge more than one device at a time. The product can also be used by operators to advertise regular promotions, products and events within the cover screen of the discs themselves, or sell the space to sponsors.

Available on both Android and IOS, the Discgo app will notify consumers when their battery life drops to 30%, whilst also advising them of the nearest Discgo location in their surrounding area to recharge.

Ashley Sheppard, commercial director, Call Systems Technology, said: “Today we live in a world where for many, not having the means to charge your phone and stay connected can at the very worst instill panic. Initial trials of Discgo showed that customers stayed longer, typically for up to two more drinks, with many making regular returns, simply because they were continually charged and connected.”
