Kaba – OpenKey Integration Partnership Makes Convenient Mobile Access Available to Operators of Any Size

MONTREAL, QC, CANADA – August 18, 2015 – Kaba announced a partnership with OpenKey to develop and implement a full-property mobile access system, with the first installation now live at a major North American property operated by Ashford. Kaba provides its Mobile Access Solution for their Saflok™ and ILCO™ brands of electronic locks.  OpenKey provides universal front-end keyless mobile entry solutions that allow entry to hotel rooms via a guest’s smart device.  Click here for information on Kaba electronic locks.

Seamless Mobile Access live at major Ashford property

Kaba’s Vice President of Marketing Stephen Pollack said, “The collaborative Kaba – OpenKey Mobile Access solution for Ashford proves the convenience of guest mobile-key operation can be a reality for any property. Our work with OpenKey has delivered a secure, seamless platform that allows guests with appropriate authorization to bypass the front desk and use their smart device to enter their rooms. This and Kaba’s other mobile access installations demonstrate that mobile is becoming the next step in guest convenience.” 

“Travelers have come to depend on their smartphone as a necessity for travel. Restaurant recommendations, directions, transportation and more can be controlled from a phone,” said OpenKey CEO TJ Person. “Hotel guests can now control their stay from the OpenKey app in a secure and easy to use app that is available for both Android and iOS platforms.”

“Guest comfort, convenience, and satisfaction are paramount to Ashford,” said Ashford Executive Vice President Jeremy Welter.  “We are excited to offer the benefit of mobile keyless entry across our portfolio of hotels. The OpenKey solution is used by multiple brands and independent hotels, which makes it especially appealing to both owners and guests.”

The flexibility of Kaba's mobile access solutions ensure that properties can meet travelers' emerging demand for greater mobile compatibility. Guests can check-in online with their mobile device, and use it during their stay as their very own mobile room key.
