Mobile technology provider Joingo and Zaplox—a developer of contact-free mobile apps for hotels, casinos and vacation rentals—have signed a partnership agreement to add contactless check-in and mobile keys to Joingo’s casino app functionality.

Joingo will integrate Zaplox’s contactless check-in/check-out and mobile key functionality into its white-labeled customized casino app by using the Zaplox software development kit. By adding these features, properties will be able to avoid check-in lines and promote a safer guest experience with reduced physical contact between staff and guests. 

Zaplox’s app comes with integrations to leading electronic lock systems and to Oracle Opera and Agilysys property-management systems, which significantly reduce the implementation time while providing seamless exchange of data across platforms.

“Solutions such as contactless check-in and mobile keys have become 'must-haves' for many of our casino clients and we are seeing a steep increase in requests for this type of solution,” said Kirk Olson, COO at Joingo. “By partnering with Zaplox, it accelerates our goal of delivering a mobile app that guests use resortwide as well as helps deliver a safer and socially distanced mobile guest experience that leverages the Joingo casino app that they are already using.”

“This year, Zaplox’s solutions have been implemented at several large casinos, including one of the largest casinos in Las Vegas with over 7,000 rooms. By teaming up with Joingo, Zaplox is expanding its reach into the U.S. casino market even further, at a time when the demand for contact-free solution is at an all-time high,” said Even Frydenberg, interim CEO at Zaplox. “The partnership with Joingo is a perfect match that will benefit properties that are looking to create a safe and profitable business that extends well beyond the pandemic."
