Zaplox AB (publ) (“Zaplox”), which offers hotels and casinos a contact-free mobile guest journey for a safe and engaging guest experience, announced that the company has signed an agreement to deploy Zaplox’s contactless kiosk solution at the Best Western Solhem Hotel and Best Western Strand Hotel with a total of 223 rooms in Visby, Sweden. According to the agreement, the two privately owned Best Western hotels will now be able to offer the convenience of contactless check-in and checkout via Zaplox Kiosk. In addition, guests will be able to use the kiosk to print their own key cards and look up information about the hotel. Zaplox Kiosk features a web-based touch interface with integration to the hotels’ property management system from VisBook and electronic locks from dormakaba.
With easy access to the Zaplox Kiosk in the hotel lobby, guests can skip the lines and manage their own check-in and checkout process. The kiosk, which has been customized and branded to align with the hotels’ brand, makes it easy for guests to print their own key cards by placing the card on an encoder next to the kiosk. After check-in, guests can go straight to their hotel room, thus avoiding close contact with the hotel staff and other guests. Not only does the Zaplox Kiosk meet the safety requirements for contactless check-in, but it also streamlines the check-in and checkout process by enabling guests to manage many of the steps themselves.
“We are proud to be able to offer the Best Western Strand Hotel and Best Western Solhem Hotel the opportunity to welcome guests in a safer and more efficient way. Zaplox’s kiosk solution enables the hotels to offer guests the benefits of a digital guest journey while reducing staffing costs and allowing staff to be reassigned to more revenue generating tasks. Today, guests expect hotels to offer smart and contactless solutions, regardless of the hotel size and destination,” says Even Frydenberg, CEO of Zaplox.
