Fuel Travel upgrades its white-label app for independent and boutique hotels by integrating its Fuel mobile app with Assa Abloy Hospitality. The integration of Assa Abloy’s mobile access solution into Fuel’s mobile app allows for safe, secure mobile key access for guests. 

The keyless entry functionality adds to Fuel mobile app's rapidly expanding features set that already includes the capability to check-in or -out without visiting the front desk, the ability to book a future stay, the option to order roomservice from your mobile phone and the flexibility to communicate with the property in real-time.

“With the integration of Assa Abloy mobile access solution into the Fuel mobile app, independent hotels can now meet the demands of the increasingly tech-savvy guest and can compete directly with corporate hotels in terms of mobile app functionality,” Fuel COO Stuart Butler said in a statement. “We learned that improving guest experience with technology is a top priority in the hospitality industry and truly believe that this will be monumental in doing just that.”
