Are sustainable and cost effective.

Though, magstripe keycards are cheap but are prone to demagnetization and therefore hoteliers are driven towards RFID (radio-frequency identification) keycard systems, which by the way, are very expensive. Mobile keys fit just right! Mobile keys give a positive return in comparison to RFID.

When we consider the environmental cost that both magstripe and RFID plastic key cards have, it’s striking to see that, statistically speaking, about 12,000 keycards are disposed of every year by a 200 (approx) room size hotel. The mobile key technology drastically reduces environmental footprint and is preferred by eco-conscious travelers.

Trend alert! Eco-conscious travel is on a rise!

The usage of smartphones is changing the way we see the world, as we are using our phones for almost everything. It has become an integral part of our lives. The mobile keys are slowly yet steadily becoming mainstream since it elevates the guest experience and saves hoteliers time.
