Kaba and Intelity have established a cooperative development agreement that enables the companies to combine their industry leading technologies to make mobile key access more readily available to a wide range of hotels that include brands and independent properties. Additional mobile key-related guest services available include mobile check-in and check-out, hotel information, wake up calls, housekeeping, and flight information.
A further upgraded version of the basic Kaba-Intelity application will enable hoteliers to integrate the mobile key platform with other hotel management systems including point-of-sale and property management systems and take advantage of access, to business intelligence systems, content control and direct messaging to guests.
Kaba and Intelity will work together to deliver mobile key access to virtually any property. The companies will provide a secure seamless platform that allows guests with appropriate authorization to bypass the front desk and use their handheld or tablet device to enter their rooms.
“Whether a hotelier wants the most advanced features or prefers a minimal digital imprint at their property, they can benefit from introducing this application,” Intelity CEO & President David Adelson said. “It streamlines the guest experience and affords new conveniences to hotel staff.”
