Once the order is received, Zaplox invoices a start-up fee and an ongoing monthly fee per door is added once the solution is in operation. The Mount Airy Casino Resort is forecasted at approximately SEK 424,000 if the mobile key solution remains in full operation for seven years (which is an average lifespan of a hotel lock).

Mobile check-in and mobile keys hot topics at CYBER HITEC as hoteliers focus on pandemic recovery and welcoming guests back

 

Zaplox AB (publ) (“Zaplox”), which offers hotels, casinos, and vacation home rentals a contact-free mobile guest journey for a safe and engaging guest experience, announced that the company has signed an agreement to implement its mobile key app at the Radisson Blu Mountain Resort & Residences, a luxury ski-in/ski-out resort with 369 rooms and apartments, located in in Trysil, Norway.

Radisson Blu Mountain Resort has partnered with Zaplox to offer guests a smoother and more efficient check-in experience that adhere to social distancing guidelines by delivering a mobile key, directly to the guest’s mobile phone. At arrival, guests do not have to wait in line or handle physical key cards, but can go straight to their room or apartment and open the hotel room door by holding the phone against the door lock.

Zaplox’s mobile key app has been integrated with the resort’s electronic door locks from ASSA ABLOY.

Because of Zaplox’s mobile key solution, Radisson Blu Mountains Resort will be able to streamline the check-in process, which is especially important at peak times, during weekends, when most guests arrive and depart around the same.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is especially important to prevent long lines and crowds gathering in the lobby. For that reason, technology, such as Zaplox’s mobile key app, is becoming a critical tool to ensure that the hotel can continue to deliver the same high level of service while minimizing physical contact with the staff.

“We are very proud that Radisson Blu Mountains Resort, one of Scandinavia’s most popular ski resorts has chosen Zaplox’s mobile key solution,” said Even Frydenberg, Zaplox’s CEO. “For many hotels, the check-in process already presented a challenge, but the current safety requirements for social distancing and sanitation add further complexity. Zaplox simplifies that process and helps hotels create a safer environment without compromising the hotel’s service quality. We look forward to helping more hotels create a safer and more guest friendly solution.”

Zaplox’s mobile key app will be rolled out at Radisson Blu Mountain Resort & Residences in the fall of 2020.

Partnership with Agilysys results in yet another premium U.S. casino deploying mobile keys based on Zaplox SDK

Mobile guest app helps improve guest safety while providing in-app access to luxury amenities and concierge services.

Zaplox AB (publ) (“Zaplox”), which offers hotels, vaccation rentals, and casinos a mobile guest journey for a safe and engaging guest experience, announced that GrandLife Hotels that operates SOHO Grand Hotel and Roxy Hotel in the iconic SOHO and Tribeca neighborhoods in New York City has signed an agreement to offer Zaplox’s mobile guest journey. The agreement includes both properties with a total of 554 rooms. Zaplox’s guest app will be integrated with the hotel’s property management system, Opera PMS from Oracle, and lock systems from ASSA ABLOY. In addition, the Zaplox guest app has been integrated with the Alice hotel operations platform to enable direct communication between staff and guests.

GrandLife Hotels selected Zaplox’s mobile guest journey in order to be able to offer a safer stay with contact-free mobile check-in, checkout, and payment. Guests can skip the lines in the lobby and use their phone to unlock the door with a mobile key.

As a result of the integration with the Alice platform, guests will also be able to use the app to communicate with staff via chat to resolve issues, request room service, make dinner reservations, and book gym appointments. The hotel can also leverage the app to communicate special promotions at a time when guests are more receptive.

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed how hotels and guests look at guest safety, and the need for contact-free guest solutions has increased. Zaplox’s solutions allow hotels to offer a cost-efficient and contact-free digital alternative to the manual check-in/checkout process with plastic key cards.

“Zaplox’s mobile guest journey is ideal for hotels like SOHO Grand and Roxy Hotel because it provides a cost-efficient way for guests to minimize in-person contact but still enjoy their hotel stay,” says Magnus Friberg, CEO at Zaplox. “With our contactless solution, hotels can comply with the industry safety guidelines while providing the high quality services guests want. We are proud to work with GrandLife to offer guests a mobile guest journey.”

After being closed for several months in the spring, SOHO Grand and Roxy Hotels are now open for business again.
