Scandinavian Hotel Chain Upgrades 3,000+ Rooms With Mobile Keys
ASSA ABLOY Hospitality announced the implementation of its Mobile Access keyless entry to more than 3,000 rooms at six Nordic Choice Hotels properties in Stockholm, Sweden. The multi-property upgrade encompassed Clarion Hotel Stockholm, Quality Hotel Globe, Clarion Hotel Amaranten, Hobo, Clarion Sign and Quality Hotel Friends. Officially going live at Nordic Choice Hotels’ annual Winter Conference in Stockholm on January 19, more than 2,000 attendees used Nordic Choice Hotels’ mobile application with ASSA ABLOY Hospitality Mobile Access to check in and use their smartphone as a room key.
“With the enhancement to ASSA ABLOY Hospitality Mobile Access at six of our hotels, we can now offer guests a more convenient experience with the use of innovative technologies that not only improve guest satisfaction but also increase overall property security,” says Lisa Farrar, chief digital officer of Nordic Choice Hotels. “This installation marks an incredible feat in the world of hospitality security technology, and we are excited to see all the additional benefits that will be achieved.”
The installation of ASSA ABLOY Hospitality’s mobile key solution allows Nordic Choice staff to focus their time on the guests and their specific needs by being increasingly available for more urgent matters and to provide a more personalized guest experience. A key benefit to guests is the ability to bypass the front desk by checking in with the Nordic Choice Hotels mobile app and use their mobile device as a room key.
As a preferred and long-term partner of Nordic Choice, ASSA ABLOY Hospitality currently supplies innovative hotel security solutions at a majority of the brand’s 190 properties. Operating through secure Seos technology, ASSA ABLOY Hospitality Mobile Access generates and delivers a digitally encrypted key directly to the Nordic Choice Hotels app, which guests then use to open their guestroom with a quick swipe of their mobile device.
