Tivus, Inc. (TIVU) Success Blends Technology and Hospitality Industry

|Includes: Tivus, Inc. (TIVU)

The success of Tivus, which has been remarkable since the company’s incorporation in June of 2009, has required an intimate and comprehensive knowledge of the hospitality industry, in combination with a strong sense of applicable technologies. Identifying and bringing together a team that represents such a mix has been the differentiating factor for Tivus, and has been the ultimate responsibility of Shiva Prakash, Tivus founder and CEO.

Prakash’s efforts have resulted in a major shift for the hotel industry, transforming what has been a growing money drain, customer entertainment systems, into a sophisticated customer-targeted potential revenue source. Through the application of advanced IPTV and wireless Internet technologies, Tivus offers a dramatically improved viewer experience, together with the opportunity for revenue-generating targeted advertising.

Driving this fast-developing hospitality revolution is a management and advisory team that reflects this rare fusion of industrial and technological awareness.

• Shiva Prakash (President & CEO) is a programming industry veteran, with an extensive understanding of content distribution and ecommerce platforms, gained at IBM and elsewhere. His research led to the recognition of a vast unmet opportunity for the application of the latest communication technologies in the hospitality industry.

• Randall Francis (Chief Technology Officer) has been an innovator in entertainment electronics since 1983, and was an early pioneer in Internet based technologies. He designed the first completely integrated soft-touch controlled guest rooms in the world.

• Phil Marriott (Executive VP of Domestic and International Sales) has founded a number of successful companies and has provided financial advice for both corporations and high net worth individuals, including Coldwell Banker and ADP.

• Doug Marriott (Advisory Board) has been involved in real estate for most of his life, and founded Marriott Development, a company that forms strategic partnerships with organizations to take advantage of innovative technology having a great upside potential.
