Using Vikey’s contactless technology, hosts can accept all reservations (even last minute), increasing the occupancy rate, while saving time and costs, if compared to traditional check-in procedure.
Vikey has developed a hardware and software solution for hotels and apartments intended for hospitality use, to open the accommodation’s door directly via smartphone.
Their system manages all aspects of check-in and check-out, including sending documents and paying for upselling services.
Vikey has recently signed national and international partnerships with major players in the hotel and alternative hospitality sectors, such as Altido (owner of 1,800 real estate properties, which is now affiliated with Vikey in 25 European cities).
