Assa Abloy Hospitality launched a cloud-based access-management system called Vostio. Designed for the hotel space, Vostio is a maintenance-free and universally accessible system that requires no local servers, providing staff with a user-friendly solution that allows them to efficiently manage all areas of a property from any location.

Designed to maximize operational efficiency and enhance the guest experience, Vostio works to ensure that all properties across a hotel chain are equipped with the same high standard functionality and that all corporate guidelines are uniformly followed.

With a focus on enhanced security and data privacy, Vostio is General Data Protection Regulation-ready and built on the latest industry standards, ensuring total data confidentiality, integrity and traceability through the use of its encrypted system. As a cloud-based platform, Vostio also receives automatic software updates to ensure that properties are always fully protected against the latest threats and vulnerabilities.

“We’re in a new era of security technology, with hotels and businesses in general moving away from traditional hardware to incorporate cloud-based solutions to streamline operations and increase property and data security,” said Christophe Sut, EVP and head of the global technologies business unit for Assa Abloy Hospitality. “With this in mind, we knew that, to continue the evolution of security technology, that we needed to develop a new groundbreaking solution that still offered the traditional services we are known for, while creating an entirely new experience that ensures security and peace of mind for everyone.”

Since Vostio is accessed through the cloud, hoteliers can now leverage the ability to securely oversee and manage their access management operations from anywhere, with features that include:

  • Control staff and guest access.
  • Instant activation or deactivation of mobile keys.
  • Coding of RFID keycards when used in conjunction with an encoder.
  • Monitoring of system health.
  • Reviewing events such as access attempts and keycard creation.

With no need for on-site servers, hoteliers using Vostio can also avoid both costly hardware expenses and time-consuming maintenance issues. Further reducing costs, Vostio's also offers standardized monthly license subscriptions. Developed as a future-proof system, Vostio is equipped to seamlessly integrate with new property upgrades and is also compatible with existing door hardware. Vostio's scalable platform allows it to meet the needs of any property, regardless of type or size, and can integrate with other cloud-based solutions to additionally improve efficiency and reduce costs.
