The white paper explains what a secure infrastructure means and how to get there

"The goal of our white paper is to help hoteliers make an informed business decision," said Kerry Hirschy, Kaba senior vice president of sales North America. "Mobile access is still an emerging technology. The publicity buzz often omits the most important consideration: guest and property security. That requires mobile access door locks backed by a well-designed infrastructure. The white paper explains what a secure infrastructure means and how to get there."

The Kaba white paper outlines a 3-step process to help hoteliers assess their readiness for secure mobile door locking systems:

1:  Answer two gateway questions that signal a property's mobile access readiness.

2:  Identify the motivation for going mobile. Examine both marketing and operational benefits.

3:  Understand the implementation process for a secure mobile strategy. Steps 1 and 2 are the tip of the iceberg when it comes to mobile implementation. The technology and operational steps required for a smooth, secure rollout lie beneath the surface. The white paper identifies the 6 initial elements of a mobile access decision.
