Virdee, a SaaS company serving the lodging, multifamily and commercial real estate industries, announced it has entered into the Certified Partner program by ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions, a global provider of access solutions, to deliver a robust contactless check-in and Mobile Access solution to joint hospitality customers and third-party integrators.

Virdee’s secure, contactless check-in flow allows ID-verified users to obtain keys for building access either at an in-lobby check-in station and/or digitally through its mobile app.

  • Expands Virdee’s electronic hotel locks portfolio: By equipping properties with Visionline’s access management technology, ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions provides properties with the ability to manage both offline or online-based locks. The integration of this leading manufacturer’s access solutions into Virdee’s virtual reception platform provides customers, and their guests, the efficiency of a self-service check-in experience.
  • Provides secure, mobile key accessibility: The transition to contactless, self-service and user-friendly access is quickly becoming a must have across real estate verticals, especially at hotels. By partnering with industry leaders such as ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions, Virdee demonstrates its commitment to providing its customers with the latest in contactless experiences.
  • Industry-leading data encryption: Mobile Access by ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions also utilizes the latest in data encryption protocols to prevent unauthorized access. This includes the use of secure communication channels to deliver digital keys and room number information to guest devices which is then stored within a digital strongbox on a guest-facing mobile app.

Branigan Mulcahy, Virdee co-founder, said: “We couldn’t be more thrilled to work with ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions as a Certified Partner moving forward. The hoteliers, asset owners and property managers who rely on ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions and its VingCard products can now use Virdee to bridge the gap between contactless check-in and contactless access when they want a self-service experience.”

This collaboration ensures our joint customers have the type of contactless experience needed to provide flexibility for guests and owners.”
