A Revolutionary Digital Solution for Premium Hotels. Tapendium is an exciting, new hospitality solution that replaces printed compendiums in hotel rooms.Through a multi use tablet based solution, operators can consolidate some key hardware into an easy to clean and sanitise, solution allowing the guest to fully engage with the wide range of services that the facility has to offer.
An Australian owned and operated start-up, Tapendium was created in 2018 with its founders recognizing that the static nature of guest communication and printed processes in hotels were extremely limiting.
Locking in Samsung as their technology partner, market leading tablets became the hardware platform for Tapendium and the company set to work on a software solution to complete the package. Within two years the goal of developing a user friendly, cloud based, scalable, customizable solution was achieved.
With the declining number of phone calls made by hotel guests, Tapendium has consolidated the full functions of the guest room phone within a multi use tablet based solution aimed at improving the guest experience for Hotel and now also Aged Care providers. Tapendium have developed a Phone module leveraging the Rainbow SDK and APIs which connects the Tapendium tablet and presents as a fully functioning telephone
Through a multi-use tablet based solution, operators can consolidate some key hardware into an easy to clean and sanitize, solution allowing the guest to fully engage with the wide range of services that the facility has to offer.

We have developed a further Telephony Android APK which can make calls between Rainbow to Rainbow as well as Rainbow to PABX accounts.
