MiniMax Premier Hotel Shanghai Hongqiao has launched mobile key from OpenKey. The hotel is supported by the OpenKey China office in Shanghai.
Similar in many respects to the well-known OpenKey mobile app used around the world, the OpenKey China version includes several innovations to address specific needs in the Chinese market. This includes the ability to request an invoice required for reimbursement of business expenses and most significantly the ability to access a hotel room using the ubiquitous social platform WeChat—akin to LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter all in one social network and used by 70 percent of the Chinese population.
“The guests of MiniMax Premier Hotels expect the latest in hotel technology, it’s part of our brand positioning and the promise we deliver on for our loyal patrons,” MiniMix Premier Hotel Shanghai Hongqiao GM Kerry Li. “Partnering with OpenKey China was the simple choice for us to improve the guest experience and deliver the most secure and convenient guestroom access in the market.”
