JOINGO and Zaplox Team Up, Adding Contactless Check-In and Mobile Keys to Leading Casino Apps

JOINGO, a leading mobile technology provider for the casino and gaming industry in the United States and Zaplox, the market innovator of the contact-free mobile guest journey for hotels, casinos and vacation rentals, jointly announced that the companies have signed a partnership agreement to add contactless check-in and mobile keys to JOINGO’s casino app functionality.

JOINGO will integrate Zaplox’s contactless check-in/check-out and mobile key functionality into their white-labeled customized casino app by using the Zaplox SDK. By adding these features, properties will be able to offer their customers no hotel waiting lines, a safer guest experience, and an enhanced resort stay. The Zaplox integration enables casinos to provide a safer environment with less physical contact between staff and guests. Meanwhile, the streamlined check-in process allows casino operators to reduce the cost for front desk staff, and players can spend more time on the casino floor instead of waiting in line.

Zaplox’s mobile guest journey comes with integrations to leading electronic lock systems and to Oracle OPERA and Agilysys property management systems, which significantly reduces the implementation time while providing a seamless exchange of data across platforms.

“Solutions such as contactless check-in and mobile keys have become “must-haves” for many of our casino clients and we are seeing a steep increase in requests for this type of solution,” said Kirk Olson, COO at JOINGO. “By partnering with Zaplox, it accelerates our goal of delivering a mobile app that guests use resort-wide as well as helps deliver a safer and socially distanced mobile guest experience that leverages the JOINGO casino app that they are already using.”

“This year, Zaplox’s solutions have been implemented at several large casinos, including one of the largest casinos in Las Vegas with over 7,000 rooms. By teaming up with JOINGO, Zaplox is expanding its reach into the U.S. casino market even further, at a time when the demand for a contact-free solution is at an all-time high,” explained Even Frydenberg, interim CEO at Zaplox. “The partnership with JOINGO is a perfect match that will benefit properties that are looking to create a safe and profitable business that extends well beyond the pandemic.
