Zaplox AB (“Zaplox”), a developer of mobile guest-engagement solutions for hotels and casinos, announced that the company has signed an agreement with Guldsmeden Hotels. The agreement includes Guldsmeden’s 12 hotels, which together comprise a total of 977 rooms in several countries. In the first phase, the Zaplox solution will be installed at six hotels, with a total of 753 rooms. Guldsmeden Hotels will use the Zaplox SDK to add mobile check-in and checkout, with mobile keys to the hotel’s mobile guest app. The solution will be fully integrated with Oracle Opera PMS and ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions locks.

The agreement includes all of Guldsmeden’s 12 hotels, and in the initial phase Zaplox will be deployed at six hotels, a total of 753 rooms; these include Axel Guldsmeden, Copenhagen (212 rooms); Babette Guldsmeden, Copenhagen (98 rooms); Manon les Suites, Copenhagen (87 rooms); Eyja Guldsmeden, Reykjavik (65 rooms); Lulu Guldsmeden, Berlin (81 rooms); and Bryggen Guldsmeden, Copenhagen (210 rooms), which is scheduled to open in mid-2019.

The Zaplox solution will enable Guldsmeden Hotels to offer guests a completely mobile guest journey, with mobile check-in and checkout and mobile keys that enable a guest to unlock the room door with his or her phone. Guests will be able to skip the lines at the front desk and go straight to their rooms. Digital keys allow the hotel to save money spent on plastic key cards and to benefit from more efficient handling of room keys, leaving more time for hotel staff to spend on revenue-generating guest services.

Magnus Friberg, CEO of Zaplox, says: “Our agreement with Guldsmeden validates that the Zaplox mobile guest journey is an ideal fit for small and medium-sized boutique hotels with a focus on sustainability. It is particularly gratifying that Guldsmeden so quickly realized the benefits of a mobile guest journey and signed an agreement that includes the deployment of Zaplox at all its hotels. Zaplox SDK makes it possible for Guldsmeden Hotels to add new services, such as mobile check-in and checkout and mobile keys, and keep their current mobile app. The agreement with Guldsmeden Hotels is linked to Zaplox’s successful partnership with AK Techotel, which is the company behind Picasso PMS, and we look forward to delivering a modern guest experience to Guldsmeden Hotels.”

The contract with Guldsmeden Hotels includes approximately SEK 170,000 ($17,705) of nonrecurring revenue for the first six hotels in the first quarter of 2019 and approximately SEK 340,000 ($35,484) in nonrecurring revenue when the six remaining hotels start the installation of the system.

It is currently hard to predict when all 977 doors will be up and running, and there is no guaranteed volume or specified duration in the agreement. If the system remains active for at least seven years, which is the normal lifetime of the locks, it would translate into monthly revenue totaling approximately 3 million kronor ($313,095). However, no guarantees or commitments have been made regarding this.

About Guldsmeden Hotels: Guldsmeden Hotels was established in 1999 and consists of 12 sustainable boutique hotels in Copenhagen, Aarhus, Oslo, Reykjavik, Berlin, Bali and Menton. The Guldsmeden Hotels concept has been organically developed over the past 18 years, and today the hotel chain is strongly linked to sustainability and design, with the goal of providing guests a wonderful stay with as little negative environmental impact as possible.

– Installs mobile check in and check out at another four hotels

Zaplox AB (publ) (”Zaplox”) – listed on Nasdaq Stockholm First North – has signed an additional agreement with Danish hotel chain Arp-Hansen Hotel Group (”ARP Hansen”) regarding a continuous roll out of the Zaplox solution for check in and check out – the so called mobile guest journey. The new agreement includes Wakeup Copenhagen’s four hotels with 1,900 rooms in Copenhagen and Århus. The solution implies that the guest will be able to check in and check out using the mobile phone, which will also serve as hotel key.

Last year Zaplox signed its first agreement with Arp-Hansen Hotel Group for the hotel and luxury hostel Steel House Copenhagen.

The agreement with Arp-Hansen Group confirms the strength in our solution where collaborations often are initiated with one hotel to later comprise all hotels within the group. When the hotel chain notice you get lower costs and increased revenue, and more content hotel guests that don’t have to stand in line at check in and check out, then you want to offer all guests what we call the mobile guest journey”, says Magnus Friberg, CEO Zaplox”

With Zaplox’ solutions, Wakeup Hotels’ guests can book their room, check in, get a mobile key, check out and pay their bill, using their phone. Except the mobile solution Wakeup Hotels offer their guests to use Zaplox Mobile Kiosk where the guest can check in and out at a kiosk in the lobby and retrieve a key card for hotel rooms not having BLE enabled locks.

Today about 50% of all hotel guests book their rooms using the mobile phone and it is a natural step for the guest to continue using the mobile to check in, open the door with the key in the mobile and to check out and pay their hotel stay.
