 All Loews Rooms in North America to Feature InnFax

LOS ANGELES, June 12, /PRNewswire/ -- AlphaNet Hospitality Systems Inc. (AHS), the leading provider of hotel facsimile and business services announced today that Loews Hotels has agreed to install its InnFax Business Center (IBC-5000) plain paper fax machine, printer and copier in selected hotels and to equip all of its rooms throughout the chain with InnFax.

Developed to address the needs of the most discriminating business traveler, the IBC-5000 combines a plain-paper send and receive in-room fax system with PC printing and copying capabilities.
