The mobile guest journey offered by Zaplox and Agilysys means that hotel guests no longer have to wait in line to check in and check out, or to gain access to their hotel room key. The check-in/checkout process is handled directly in the hotel’s app and guests can instead spend more time in the casino or enjoy the hotel amenities.
