As travel restrictions start to ease up and guests are returning in larger numbers, guests staying at the Park Regis Birmingham, will soon have the option of a contactless mobile guest journey. Guests will be prompted to download the hotel’s mobile guest app and can after that use their phone for contactless check-in and checkout with mobile payment through the app. Once check-in the guests can use their phone as a mobile key to unlock the hotel room and access other hotel facilities.
Zaplox Mobile Guest App – Premium 3 will be integrated with the OPERA property management system from Oracle as well as with the electronic lock system from dormakaba, providing a streamlined and seamless mobile guest experience. Integration with the hotel’s payment system from Planet enables guests to pay the hotel bill directly from their phone.
With access to the mobile guest app, guests are no longer limited to, or dependent on, the hotel staff to help them with the check-in process. From check-in and distribution of the room key to checkout and payment – the mobile app empowers guests to manage the entire process. Thus, guests can skip the lines at the front desk at go straight to their room and with less pressure on the front desk, hotel staff can be reassigned to other tasks that have a greater impact on the guest experience and generate more revenue.
Via the app, guests have mobile access to up-to-date information about the hotel’s amenities, services, and things-to-do in the area. With information at their fingertips, guests have easy access to hotel services and can better plan their stay. In addition, the hotel can use the guest app to communicate special offers and promotions to increase auxiliary sales and profits.
“Park Regis Birmingham joins a rapidly growing number of hotels that leverage Zaplox’s mobile guest journey to deliver on the guests’ demand for a safer and more convenient hotel experience while increasing operational efficiency and reducing cost,” says Even Frydenberg, CEO at Zaplox. “The sudden travel interruption caused by the pandemic, has triggered people’s appetite for a smarter and more personalized hotel experiences.
