MediaConcepts' mobile application integrated with SALTO's Access Control System
The fully customisable app offers hotels the flexibility to add functionality as required.
MediaConcepts, an innovative provider of integrated digital solutions for global hospitality organisations, has integrated its mobile application, Priscilla, with SALTO System's access control system.
Already a feature-rich application that offers hotel guests a more intuitive way to access information and services throughout their stay, Priscilla's latest integration allows guests to use their smartphone to gain access to their rooms fitted with SALTO's Bluetooth Low Energy enabled electronic escutcheons.
"In a world where people expect to do everything on their mobile devices, hoteliers have a great opportunity to optimise their guest experience through a single app," said John Bowen, Founder and CEO of MediaConcepts. "Nobody likes to download multiple apps when they only need one, which is why this collaboration is so important in our vision to continually enrich the guest experience."
Priscilla allows guests to manage their stay through their own mobile devices - from check-in, to opening doors, controlling room lights, ordering room service, requesting for concierge or housekeeping services, finding their way around, receiving relevant promotions, all the way through to check-out.
SALTO Systems Vice President Hospitality Access Solutions, Rob Zijl agrees. "Guest demand for the use of smartphones and apps as part of their hotel experience is increasing so more major hotel chains as well as individual boutique properties are looking to embrace this smart technology.
The integration of our two technologies combines the benefits of SALTO's Bluetooth Low Energy platform with MediaConcepts' Priscilla app. This delivers a richer, more personalised hospitality experience for the guest and more business opportunities for hotels."
