Zaplox AB and Via Systems are happy to announce that they have entered into a partner cooperation. The partnership means that Zaplox solution is integrated with Picasso PMS and that Via System will market and sell Zaplox solution to its customers in Scandinavia.

Via System will offer Zaplox Mobile Guest Journey as an integrated solution to the approximately 850 hotels currently using Picasso PMS.  Zaplox and Via System now offer Via Systems connected hotels, estimated at approximately 60,000 doors, check-in, mobile keys and check-out via the mobile phone.

Mobile check-in, mobile keys, and mobile check-out are central to a Mobile Guest Journey. Today, approximately 50% of all travel bookings are done via mobile phone and it is a natural step for the guest to continue to use the mobile to check in at the hotel, open the door with the key in the mobile phone and to check out and pay their stay.

Zaplox accelerate our presence in the Scandinavian market and expand our offer with Via System as a sales partner. Zaplox integration to Picasso PMS creates new business opportunities for both parties as Via System will also actively sell Zaplox’s solution directly to the hotels using Picasso PMS”, says Magnus Friberg, CEO Zaplox.

Klaus Ahrenkilde, CEO, Techotel says: ’we are very happy about this collaboration with Zaplox. We believe access control via mobile phone is the future standard of the hotel business and we are excited to be a part of the transition in Denmark and ultimately Europe. The incorporation of Zaplox into Picasso Digital complements the digital experience we want our Scandinavian hotels to have with Picasso. Our objective is to offer our customers the most comprehensive hotel software and within the near future to be among the best providers of hotel software in Europe with the most digital solutions.
