Calgary, AB – May 18, 2021 – WebRezPro property management system (PMS) for independent hotels, hotel groups, vacation rentals, resorts and inns, now offers integration with LOXE, a universal keyless entry solution for hotels, for a fully automated check-in experience and seamless guestroom access.

The LOXE solution pairs mobile key technology with a cloud-based front desk platform for automated access management. Using a Bluetooth module, LOXE mobile key technology works with a property's existing keycard locks, making implementation of keyless entry and contactless check-in easy. The LOXE app allows guests to unlock their guestroom door, check in and out, and access upsell offers, empowering hoteliers to deliver a smarter, modern hotel experience.

"Upselling provides hotels with a great way to maximize the value of every customer. LOXE mobile key maximizes the upsell," said Harold Hababou, CEO at LOXE. "By having their room keys on their smartphones, guests will enjoy more easily the convenience of additional services like early check-in, late check-out, room service, room upgrades, activities, food delivery, and more."

The integration between LOXE and WebRezPro PMS results in a completely automated contactless check-in process. Through the two-way connection, WebRezPro sends reservation data directly to the LOXE system for automatically issuing mobile keys to guests upon check-in and deactivating keys upon check-out. When a guest uses the LOXE mobile app to unlock their room for the first time, the integration automatically sends a check-in request to WebRezPro. Eliminating the need for hotel staff to update information in both systems manually and reducing the risk of manual errors, the time-saving combined solution optimizes front desk operations and ensures every guest receives their digital key at the right time for greater guest satisfaction.

“Leveraging technology to streamline and strengthen hotel operations and improve the guest experience is key to competing in our rapidly evolving industry,” said Frank Verhagen, President at World Web Technologies, Inc., the company behind WebRezPro PMS. “LOXE makes modern keyless entry technology accessible to all hotels, and our joint solution gives hotels a competitive edge by streamlining operations and completely automating guest check-in.”
