Virdee, a SaaS company delivering digital check-in and virtual concierge services to the hospitality and commercial real estate industries, has achieved Oracle Validated Integration with Oracle Hospitality Expertise that allows communication with OPERA, the global leader in hotel PMS systems. The partnership empowers hotels running on the OPERA system to leverage Virdee’s unique functionality, bypassing the front desk, marketing room upgrades and early check-in/checkout, assigning rooms, and verifying guest identity with reservation data during the check-in process.

Virdee provides a full contactless check-in experience, empowering 100% of hotel guests to check-in either via kiosk or their mobile device, receive a digital or physical key and head straight to their guestroom without ever standing in line at the front desk.

Expertise is a core tenet of the modernized Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) program and allows Oracle partners to highlight their capabilities in a focused area. Ultimately, Expertise is designed to make it easy for customers to identify partners who can deliver quality solutions and minimize risk for their specific needs.

In order to achieve the Oracle Validated Integration with Oracle Hospitality Expertise, partners like Virdee must meet a series of qualifiers, including demonstrating that the integration performs as documented. Learn more about Expertise, including viewing the complete Expertise Catalog, at www.oracle.com/partnernetwork/expertise.

Through the OPERA integration, Virdee's identity verification module will securely connect user profiles with reservation data. Prior to completing the check-in process, Virdee will collect a payment method for incidentals and current charges, auto-assign a room, deliver a mobile key or a key card to the guest, and mark the guest as checked in on the Oracle Hospitality OPERA platform.

“We are excited to announce this milestone partnership with Oracle/Opera,” said Virdee Co-Founder Nadav Cornberg. “The demand for a contactless check-in experience skyrocketed during the COVID pandemic and we are proud to partner to offer solutions that keep guests and staff safe while making the process more efficient for both parties. Via the new integration,  hotels around  the world can now utilize our best-in-class, end-to-end product for the complete digital check-in experience, including ID verification, payment collection, access control and remote support.”

“Achieving Oracle Validated Integration with Oracle Hospitality Expertise gives our customers the confidence that the integration of Virdee Virtual Reception is functionally sound and performs as tested,” said David Hicks, vice president, Worldwide ISV Cloud Business Development, Oracle. “For solutions deployed on premise, in the cloud, or both, Oracle Validated Integration applies a rigorous technical review process that helps to reduce deployment risk and improves the user experience of the partner’s integrated offering.”
