Situated between Seattle and Portland on the U.S. west coast, Arena Del Mar Hotel was looking to maximize guest safety and convenience while boosting efficiency. The hotel decided to adopt mobile access via integration with Vostio Access Management by ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions. Together, ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions and Certified Partner, Zaplox AB helped the hotel integrate digital key functionality with the access management. 

Arena Del Mar Hotel’s decision to integrate mobile access comes from its goal to provide guests with instant check-in convenience while reducing germ risks from close physical contact and shared surfaces. By adopting Mobile Access by ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions through the integrating of Zaplox’s guest-facing app technology with Vostio Access Management, the property can now provide each guest with the ability to check-in digitally using personal smart devices. Further eliminating the need for guests to wait in line at the front desk where germs may be present, is the additional ability for guests to use personal devices as a secure digital key to gain instant access to guestrooms and other hotel areas.  

The integration also serves to combine the benefits of digital key technology with cloud-based security access innovation. In contrast to traditional access management platforms, Vostio Access Management’s cloud-based design removes the need for costly onsite servers while providing hotel staff with the ability to oversee security access operations from anywhere with an internet connection. Significantly, the elimination of physical servers also translates into no onsite maintenance and instant software updates.
