As the hospitality industry’s leading provider of digital key technology with more than 130,000 guestrooms currently using its solution around the world, ASSA ABLOY Hospitality has announced the release of a Mobile Access best practices white paper: “Staying Ahead of the Curve: How hotels and resorts can leverage mobile-access technology as a principal solution, in light of the growing emergence of a smart-device equipped world. ”

Serving as a guide for hoteliers of all types, in order to provide them with the insight needed to make informed decisions on how to best leverage the latest mobile-based access technologies, and what features should be considered when comparing solutions, the official release of the new white paper coincides with the opening of HITEC 2016, with copies and further information available at ASSA ABLOY Hospitality booth #1201.

As a revolutionary technology that presents a diverse range of options, Mobile Access technology is understandably a field where many hospitality professionals are seeking out industry expertise before making a committed investment on the solution. With ABLOY Hospitality’s latest white paper, readers can review statistics on growing trends and guest demands for mobile-compatible services to better grasp the rationale behind the surge in popularity for such solutions. By referencing the resource, hoteliers can also determine what functionalities should be offered in order to satisfy the growing guest demand for greater convenience and self-service. Since Mobile Access technology is an integral part of a hotel’s security protocol, the white paper also offers critical insight on the security safeguards that should be considered when analyzing which solution works best to protect both property and guests.

“In publishing the white paper, we wanted to provide the industry with a roadmap on what Mobile Access technology does, how it can benefit their properties and what kind of solution should be deployed to guarantee the highest level of guest satisfaction,” said Tim Shea, President of ASSA ABLOY Hospitality. “We are proud to again serve as the industry’s most trusted resource on a new technology that is changing the way hotels interact with their guests, and how they can cater to the evolving needs of a tech-savvy generation of travelers.”

In addition to information on enhancing guest convenience and safety, the ASSA ABLOY Hospitality Mobile Access white paper offers valuable insight on how to ensure that any implementation of Mobile Access is a success, leading to higher adoption rates by guests. By implementing a digital key solution that fully addresses their own unique mobile app needs, hotels can significantly improve attempts to engage its guests with promotions or make them aware of property amenities that can increase revenue opportunities.
