Intelity, leading provider of guest services technology to the hospitality industry and an Inc. 5000 company, announces the release of a new e-Book about mobile keyless hotel room entry in conjunction with ASSA ABLOY Hospitality.
“Introducing Mobile Guestroom Access to Your Hotel” provides general information for those who are interested in learning the basics about technology that allows hotel guests to securely unlock their assigned guestroom doors with a mobile device, which is currently one of the hottest topics in the hospitality industry.
According to a poll by Magnani Caruso Dutton, 62% of total travelers and 70% of business travelers said they would be likely to use such a feature on their mobile device during a hotel stay if it were available.
“We’ve received a lot of questions about mobile keyless entry from our hotel partners and the industry in general,” said Intelity CEO & President David Adelson. “This is a key opportunity to help share information that allows hoteliers to learn about new innovation that could potentially benefit both them and their guests.”
The e-book is being released with ASSA ABLOY Hospitality, the creator of the new ASSA ABLOY Hospitality Mobile Access solution that allows hotel guests to use smartphones as digital keys to access guest rooms. The ASSA ABLOY Hospitality solution has already been proven with over 60,000 Mobile Access-enabled locks already deployed to leading hotels around the globe.
The solution integrates with Intelity’s ICE (Interactive Customer Experience™) Mobile guest services platform, which enables central management of digital guest services, opens new channels for revenue and streamlines existing hotel operations. Thanks to this integration, hotels can provide guests with a single app that transforms a mobile device into a powerful tool that can be used for services such as keyless room entry, mobile check-in or –out, making concierge-level requests, looking up general information, and more.
The first e-Book in the series, “Introducing Tablets to Hotel Guest Rooms,” explores the impact of installing guest rooms with in-room tablets for enhanced digital guest engagement.
