Initially, the agreements include a total of 794 rooms, but have the potential of 3,280 rooms as some are pilot projects and will only roll out the mobile key for use in a portion of the rooms in the first phase.
The Agilysys and Zaplox partnership deliver a contactless mobile guest journey with mobile check-in/checkout and a mobile key, available directly on the guest’s phone. As a result, hotel guests can avoid the crowds in the lobby and go straight to their room, using their phone to unlock the door.
The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the demand for a contact-free, mobile alternative to the traditional check-in and check-out process, which normally takes place in the hotel lobby. It is the focus on guest safety and social distancing that is driving the demand for a contact-free mobile guest journey.
In addition to providing a safer hotel stay, the mobile guest journey also allows hotels to provide higher quality services, regardless of when and where the guest requests the information.
“We are very grateful that our partnership with Agilysys is accelerating and generating several new hotel agreements in the United States,” said Even Frydenberg, interim CEO of Zaplox. “The American hotel industry is undergoing a rapid transformation due to the Covid-19 pandemic and our companies’ joint offering helps hoteliers to comply with the new safety requirements. Zaplox’s mobile key strengthens Agilysys’ mobile guest solution, particularly in the U.S. casino market, where Agilysys has many customers.”
