Fuel Mobile App Offers Keyless Entry via Partnership with ASSA ABLOY Hospitality
Fuel Travel announces a significant upgrade to its white label app for independent and boutique hotels by successfully integrating its Fuel Mobile App with ASSA ABLOY.
The integration of ASSA ABLOY Hospitality's Mobile Access solution into Fuel's mobile app allows for safe, secure mobile key access for guests. The keyless entry functionality adds to Fuel Mobile App's rapidly expanding features set that 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.
