Zaplox Mobile Key Services integrated with SALTO Systems’ access control solution for hotels

Zaplox – a recognised market innovator when it comes to advanced Mobile Key Services for the global hospitality industry – has now integrated its solution with SALTO Systems, in turn providing hotels and their guests with “unmatched convenience” and “superior satisfaction”.

Zaplox becomes the first Mobile Key Services company to announce its integration with SALTO Systems. The new strategic global partnership formed between the two companies allows any property with SALTO BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy)-enabled locks installed to easily implement mobile access functionality for guests while at the same time experiencing the “unique operational benefits” that Zaplox Mobile Key Services provide.

Through the new technology integration with Zaplox, guests of properties with SALTO access control systems will now be able to use their smart phones for guest room access. For their part, hoteliers can offer and promote revenue-creating smart services with full customisation and hotel branding on the Zaplox Mobile Key Services app platform.

The Zaplox-SALTO Systems partnerships will benefit hotel managers and their guest residents

This wide range of ancillary services, which can be made available in the app, includes mobile check-in and check-out, room upgrades, restaurant bookings, room service and special offers.

The user-friendly Zaplox Mobile Key Services app is easily downloaded and available for all major smart phone platforms. With recent industry research indicating that more than 70% of business and leisure travellers would opt to use their smart phones as a check-in alternative, Zaplox Mobile Key Services duly allow guests to bypass the front desk altogether.

Additionally, mobile keys are highly secure since a guest’s smart phone is less likely to be misplaced than a plastic key card and. typically, is password protected. Should a guest lose their phone, mobile keys may easily be revoked and reassigned in real time by hotel staff.

Raising the bar for guest room security

In less than a decade, SALTO has become one of the world’s top five manufacturers of electronic access control systems. The company has a strong tradition of delivering the latest in guest room access technology and has launched a series of innovations since its founding, raising the bar for guest room security to new heights.

By combining SALTO smart locks with Zaplox Mobile Key Services, hotels benefit from enhanced cost efficiencies through streamlined operations and revenue opportunities, allowing front desk staff to focus on other aspects of guest service and communication.

“We’re thrilled to serve as the first mobile key app provider for SALTO Systems, in turn providing the company and its clients with an integration-ready solution that’s instantly available for commercialisation around the globe,” said Magnus Friberg, CEO at Zaplox,

“This is a very important collaboration for Zaplox as it opens up new market possibilities together with an industry-renowned partner. We strongly believe that mobile keys and the additional services included will improve both guest loyalty and enhance the guest experience by making it a smooth and comfortable proposition.“

Jennifer Stack, vice-president of marketing at SALTO Systems, responded: “Research shows guest demand for the use of smart phones and apps as part of their hotel experience is increasing. This integration with Zaplox is perfect for delivering an exciting range of benefits enabling guests to enjoy all the advantages provided by integrated smart technology designed to maximise the flexibility and enjoyment of their hotel stay.”
