San Francisco Hotel Adds Mobile Access App, Electronic Door Locks

Guests can use the app to unlock their rooms at Hotel VIA in San Francisco.

Hotel VIA in San Francisco has successfully implemented several innovative technologies including ASSA ABLOY Hospitality along with KEYPR.

Hotel VIA is using ASSA ABLOY Hospitality's VingCard Essence electronic door locks, Visionline locking system and the ASSA ABLOY Hospitality Mobile Access solution, which is available to Hotel VIA guests through KEYPR's customized mobile concierge app.

"As a new hotel, we wanted to seek out hospitality technologies that supported the contemporary and innovative aesthetic we were trying to create," said Barbara Perzigian, general manager at Hotel VIA. "With these cutting-edge technologies from ASSA ABLOY Hospitality and KEYPR, we have created a one-of-a-kind experience for our guests."

Hotel VIA's 159 rooms are now equipped with ASSA ABLOY Hospitality's VingCard Essence door locks, which feature mobile access compatibility to allow guests to use their smartphones to access their room. With the Visionline wireless locking system, hotel management can remotely monitor and control lock access and activity in the hotel.

Hotel VIA has also deployed KEYPR, which includes a custom Hotel VIA mobile app, in-room tablets, and its Guest Experience Management System (GEMS®). KEYPR gives staff and management visibility into guest needs throughout their stay, the ability to offer targeted services, and the ease of monitoring operational KPIs. Hotel VIA also has KEYPR's digital marquees installed at guest room doors, which offer workflow management for staff and the ability to add marketing messaging, as well as privacy and service indicators through an integration with INNCOM.
