Zaplox AB (publ) (“Zaplox”), which offers hotels and casinos a mobile guest journey for a convenient and engaging guest experience, announces that Zaplox will deliver mobile keys to Talking Stick Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona as part of its partnership with Agilysys. Talking Stick Resort is a AAA Four Diamond Resort with 497 rooms and recipient of several recent hotel and casino awards, including Casino of the Year” by the International Entertainment Buyers Association (IEBA). The Zaplox SDK will be integrated with Agilysys Visual One property management solution and lock systems from ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions.
It is Zaplox’s partnership with Agilysys, a leading supplier of hospitality software and hotel property management systems (PMS) to casinos and resorts in North America that has generated the new agreement, in which the Zaplox SDK is included in the Agilysys mobile guest app rGuest Express Mobile. Agilysys benefits from Zaplox’s unique capabilities and has added the mobile keys functionality to its own mobile solution. At the Talking Stick Resort, the Zaplox SDK is integrated with Agilysys Visual One PMS for hotels and with the electronic lock system from ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions.
Up until now, Talking Stick Resort has been offering 24-hour check-in and checkout service through the front desk, where guests have waited in line to check in and receive a key. The new mobile solution allows guests to check in/check out at any time of day, but without waiting in line at the front desk. Instead, guests can go straight to their hotel room and open the door with a mobile key that is linked directly to their reservation. As a result, Talking Stick Resort is able to provide guests better service and increased availability.
“It is very gratifying that our partnership with Agilysys, a leader in hospitality software with a large installed base at hotels and casinos in the United States, is now generating another contract for Zaplox. Partnerships like this, enables our partners to use Zaplox SDK to offer a mobile guest journey, thus allowing us to scale our installations in a smooth and manageable way,” says Magnus Friberg, CEO at Zaplox.
As specified in the partnership agreement with Agilysys, Zaplox receives an order for mobile keys each time Agilysys signs a customer contract for the rGuest Express Mobile. Once the order for the mobile keys is received, Zaplox invoices a start-up fee, followed by a monthly charge per door once the solution is live. The new Agilysys agreement, pertaining Talking Stick Resort is forecasted at approximately SEK 700 000 if the mobile key solution remains in full operation for seven years (which is an average lifespan of a hotel lock). The agreement does not have any guaranteed volume or revenue levels.
