Traveling has changed dramatically in just a few years. Gone are travel agencies, we are all booking our plane tickets and hotel rooms online or on smartphones. Now even getting access to your hotel room can be done on your iPhone or Android phone.
Since 2013, Scandic Hotel’s guests have enjoyed the possibility to check in online. Now, to make it even easier to manage the entire hotel experience, Scandic is testing digital check-in and mobile room keys at selected hotels in Stockholm.
Guests will be able to check in quickly, choose their room and pay for their stay as well as use their mobile phone as a key instead of a traditional keycard.
– By offering digital check-in and mobile room keys, we will be able to provide smart and simple services for our guests, says Thomas Engelhart, Chief Commercial Officer at Scandic Hotels Group.
The new solutions, which have been tailor-made for Scandic, have been developed together with Ariane Systems and Assa Abloy Hospitality. Initially, Scandic plans to roll out online check-in at all hotels in big cities during 2017.
