"As an innovator of hotel security solutions, we are dedicated to aligning with companies that share our vision of a future where hotels utilize cutting-edge technologies to increase guest and staff security," says Eric Thomsen, general manager software & credentials at ASSA ABLOY Hospitality. "OpenKey has made waves in the industry by supplying hoteliers with a user-friendly solution to allow guests to enter their room through a mobile application, evolving mobile access into the new standard in hotel access."
Operating through secure Seos technology, ASSA ABLOY Hospitality Mobile Access delivers a digitally encrypted key directly to a guest's smart device, which can be accessed through OpenKey's mobile application at certain properties. Instead of employing the traditional front desk check in process, guests have the option to check in remotely and enter their room immediately upon arrival by swiping their personal smartphone against a mobile access-compatible lock.
"We knew when we started OpenKey that we wanted to work with well established and highly respected companies, the best of the best," says TJ Person, CEO of OpenKey. "Through this collaboration with ASSA ABLOY Hospitality, two of the largest innovators in the world of mobile key technology joined forces to engage guests and ensure their security with an advanced and convenient solution."
ASSA ABLOY Hospitality will be able to offer its innovative ASSA ABLOY Hospitality Mobile Access solution to additional hotels by integrating it into OpenKey's guest-facing mobile application. OpenKey's solution offers the ability to be fully customized to each specific property implementing ASSA ABLOY Hospitality Mobile Access, allowing hotels to offer their guests unique experiences based on their specific brand preferences and onsite offerings.
