Zaplox AB (publ) (“Zaplox”), which offers hotels and casinos a mobile guest journey and kiosk solution for the convenient and engaging guest experience, announces that SkiStar AB (publ) has signed a new agreement that adds integration with ASSA ABLOY Global Solution lock systems to the Zaplox SDK. Zaplox’s mobile key solution is already included in SkiStar’s mobile guest journey and the new integration enables rental cabins that are equipped with mobile-enabled locks from ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions to be unlocked with a mobile key from Zaplox.

SkiStar has used Zaplox SDK to deliver a mobile guest journey for several years, enabling guests to use mobile check-in and mobile keys to access their cabins. Up until now, Zaplox’s solution has been integrated with mobile locks from SALTO Systems, but with the new agreement, SkiStar will be adding integration with locks from ASSA ABLOY. The new lock integration allows SkiStar to also offer mobile keys to guests staying in cabins with mobile-enabled locks from ASSA ABLOY.

“We are proud of our long-standing partnership with SkiStar and that Zaplox once again has been trusted to be part of the next step of SkiStar’s digital development. SkiStar’s mobile guest journey with mobile keys from Zaplox has provided guests staying in SkiStar’s rental cabins a popular and convenient check-in process with a positive impact on the guest experience. The new agreement expands Zaplox’s ability to support SkiStar’s digital guest journey and we look forward to continuing to deliver increased accessibility and better service to SkiStar’s customers,” says Magnus Friberg, CEO at Zaplox AB.

The agreement expands the current partnership agreement between SkiStar and Zaplox. The new agreement is forecasted at approximately SEK 3.8 million if the new solution is fully implemented for all of the SkiStar-owned vacation rentals and remains in full operation for seven years (which is an average lifespan of a hotel lock). The agreement does not have any guaranteed volume or revenue levels.
