Rydges Hotels and Resorts has selected CheckMate’s guest-centric tools to personalize service and increase profits across 49 properties. Rydges is a family of hotels and resorts that accommodates over one million guests each year in Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom.

Working with CheckMate, Rydges anticipates seeing an increase in loyalty program memberships and will be able to differentiate its brand by offering the convenience of online and mobile check-in.

This equates to more than $50,000 in annual revenue that would not have otherwise been realized.Thirty to 50 percent of guests use online check-in every day.
