“Sixty percent of travelers say they are more likely to stay at a hotel that allows them to use smartphones to check in and out remotely and unlock rooms,” said Stephen Pollack dormakaba vice president marketing. “Convenience and functionality win the loyalty of the 21st century traveler. Our white paper explains how mobile access control systems work, what to look for in a secure mobile access system, and how to implement it.”
Your competition already has a mobile strategy
Secure mobile access is now a must for hotel operators. Twenty six percent of properties offer mobile access today, an additional 23 percent plan to implement it in the future. “Competition and guest demand are powering the trend to include mobile access in hotel apps,” said Pollack. “But mobile access requires more than a smartphone app and digital door lock.” dormakaba’s white paper explains why security is essential, and describes the step-by-step processes behind a secure mobile access solution.
