Hotel guests now able to use their smartphone as a secure room key with the new Mobile Access solution for independent hotels
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C., Feb. 12, 2019 – No more waiting in line at the front desk after a long journey. Fuel Travel announces a significant upgrade to its industry leading white label app for independent and boutique hotels by successfully integrating its Fuel Mobile App with ASSA ABLOY, the Global Leader In Door Opening Solutions.
The integration of ASSA ABLOY Hospitality’s Mobile Access solution into Fuel’s mobile app allows for safe, secure hotel mobile key access for guests. The keyless entry functionality adds to the rapidly expanding features set of Fuel’s hotel mobile app, which already includes the capability to check-in or out without visiting the front desk, the ability to book a future stay, the option to order room service from your mobile phone, and the flexibly to communicate with the property in real-time.
In a recent research study conducted by Fuel Travel (owner and developer of the Fuel mobile App), FlipTo and StayNtouch, hundreds of hoteliers and suppliers were asked where the industry could improve from a technology perspective. There were many encouraging results from this study, none more so than the fact that both suppliers and hospitality managers are keenly aware of the importance of leveraging technology to improve the guest experience.
“With the integration of ASSA ABLOY Mobile Access solution into the Fuel Mobile App, independent hotels can now meet the demands of the increasingly tech-savvy guest and can compete directly with corporate hotels in terms of mobile app functionality,” said Stuart Butler, chief operating officer of Fuel. “We learned that improving guest experience with technology is a top priority in the hospitality industry and truly believe that this will be monumental in doing just that.”
The Mobile Access solution from ASSA ABLOY Hospitality will help to address these needs by making VingCard RFID locks at the property operable with mobile devices through Bluetooth Low Energy technology. It is a highly advanced mobile phone-based keyless entry solution developed specifically for the global hotel market. This solution adds great value to the guest experience by removing queuing for check-in and keycard encoding.
Starting at $200 per month, Fuel Mobile App & Digital Key is the most feature-rich and cost-effective custom mobile app for independent hotels. For more information on the solution, visit fueltravel.com/app
