STOCKHOLM--ASSA ABLOY Hospitality, innovator of security technologies for the hospitality industry, announces the successful implementation of several of its advanced security and access solutions at KViHotel in Hungary. Located in Budapest, KViHotel has implemented ASSA ABLOY Hospitality Mobile Access, VingCard Allure electronic door locks and the Visionline software platform to maximize security and enhance the overall guest experience. The new 40-room property is among the first smart hotels in Europe to offer a complete mobile experience through the use of its mobile app, TMRW Hotels, which as an ASSA ABLOY Hospitality certified partner includes the added feature of Mobile Access keyless entry.
After researching several locking system providers, KViHotel opted for the ASSA ABLOY Hospitality solutions based on excellent customer service and the company's ability to provide an all-encompassing solution to meet staff and guest demands. With the installation of ASSA ABLOY Hospitality Mobile Access and VingCard Allure locks, guests can quickly and conveniently enter their room immediately upon arrival with a quick swipe of their mobile device.
"As a new hotel, we knew that a main focus of the design needed to reflect modern industry and guest trends through the adoption of innovative technologies," says Péter Palicz, general manager of KViHotel. "Keyless entry is undoubtedly evolving the hotel guest experience, and with ASSA ABLOY Hospitality's longstanding history of delivering exceptional service and its position as a leader in hotel security technology, we knew its Mobile Access solution was exactly what our hotel needed to appeal to today's tech-savvy guest expectations."
ASSA ABLOY Hospitality Mobile Access is an advanced solution that allows guests to use their mobile device as a digital room key. Operating through secure Seos technology, an encrypted key is delivered securely to a guest's smartphone, which they then use to open their guestroom door, as well as accessing other onsite amenities and secured areas. Using advanced RFID technology, the VingCard Allure electronic lock features a unique interactive and customizable LED panel that is housed on the wall adjacent to the guestroom door, rather than on the door itself. An additional feature available to KViHotel guests is the ability to post 'do not disturb' or 'make up room' notifications to allow hotel staff to easily know when they are able to freely enter a guestroom for housekeeping and other services. Though the use of the Visionline system, hotel staff can remotely control who has access to certain areas on property and when.
Since the installation, KViHotel has experienced positive feedback from guests enjoying the benefit of being able to bypass the front desk and enter their room immediately upon arrival with their own smartphones. Hotel staff has also benefited greatly from ASSA ABLOY Hospitality's customer support, as the team was committed to ensuring that all needs of the property were met to create a streamlined and convenient service for hotel guests and staff.
