The Park Plaza Arena Pula, an Arenaturist-owned hotel situated within Croatia's Istrian Peninsula, has upgraded existing VingCard Signature RFID and Classic RFID guestroom door locks with Assa Abloy Hospitality mobile access, allowing guests to skip front desk lines and use their own smart devices as a digital key. With the ability to offer full compatibility with previously installed VingCard door locks, Assa Abloy Hospitality mobile access is a cost-effective solution that allows hoteliers to seamlessly add mobile phone-based guestroom access.
Park Plaza Arena Pula staff was able to quickly begin leveraging the solution's benefits due to the rapid and professional response of installation teams. Soon after the decision was made as a result, guests could begin enjoying their hotel stay experience immediately upon arrival, without having to wait for assistance at the front desk in order to gain access to their rooms.
A flexible solution that provides hoteliers with the ability to implement digital key functionality in the manner that best suits their property needs, mobile access offers three options for implementing a guest-facing mobile app. This can be accomplished either through a property's existing app, via a third party vendor in the Assa Abloy Hospitality Certified Partner Program, or by leveraging Assa Abloy Hospitality's standalone solution for a quick and straightforward roll out.
In opting to integrate mobile access into its own mobile application, the Park Plaza Arena Pula was able to increase the potential of guests downloading the software, due to its enhanced value in saving time and minimizing hassle.
Operating with award-winning Seos technology, Assa Abloy Hospitality mobile access delivers unmatched security by working with a hotel's property-management system to allocate a guestroom and generate a digital key that is encrypted - and securely delivered to a guest's smartphone. The smartphone, in turn, places the key in a secure key vault within the hotel's mobile app. When presented to the appropriate lock, the app then transmits the encrypted key via a secure-communication channel via Bluetooth , thus ensuring that only authorized users are able to receive digital key information and gain access.
