MGM Resorts International to install mobile check-in across all properties

Aria Resort and Casino

MGM Resorts International has partnered with StayNTouch to provide an intuitive check-in and check-out process across all of its properties. To date, the StayNTouch platform has been installed at 15 MGM Resorts destinations. MGM Resorts intends to install mobile check-in capability at all properties by the end of 2017.

The StayNTouch platform is delivered using two solutions on a single cloud platform. The Rover PMS Overlay mobilizes existing front desk and housekeeping operations. Zest is a guest-centric, mobile website experience, enabling check-in and check-out, preference collection, and upsell opportunities.

Aria, a AAA Five Diamond Award winner, was the first to roll out StayNTouch’s cloud-based mobility platform, offering guests a variety of check-in and check-out options via their smartphone. Guest impact was immediate, with check-in lines and wait times significantly reduced.
