SAFLOK, OpenWays Partnership Facilitates Cell Phone-Based Locking Solution

Global electronic hotel lock provider SAFLOK announces its collaboration with OpenWays, a global provider of mobile-based access-management and guest-service solutions for the hospitality industry. Through this alliance, SAFLOK and Openways have developed an interface that enables SAFLOK locks to read a "key" that is delivered by an OpenWays-enabled cell phone.
This interaction between the two solutions enables the guest to securely receive his or her room number and room key via cell phone, thereby streamlining the check-in and check-out process by allowing the guest to bypass the front desk.
OpenWays interfaces with SAFLOK electronic locks regardless of the card technology being used. The solution interfaces with a hotel's PMS, CRS and CIS, and can facilitate mobile bookings and mobile confirmations, mobile upgrade offers, e-payment/e-ticketing vouchers, e-concierge, and more.
Additionally, with the introduction of this interface, SAFLOK customers who wish to adopt mobile-access technology no longer have to rely on the availability of NFC devices to realize this convenience. SAFLOK and ILCO were among the first providers to introduce NFC-compatibility with its locks. The OpenWays-SAFLOK integration is available to new customers and customers with already existing magstripe and RFID installations.
SAFLOK has a reputation for its operational efficiency, affordability, and ease in enhancing the guest experience. This collaboration with OpenWays is a natural extension of the unique and cutting-edge solutions that is part of SAFLOK's commitment to developing customer-centric innovation.
