, a boutique hotel development company with nine properties currently flagged under several major hotel brands, has implemented VingCard Essence at two of its properties. As new construction projects, both the Aloft Fort Worth Downtown and Holiday Inn Express & Suites Plano East implemented Essence to present guests with a secure and convenient hotel environment along with a modern and enticing lock design.
To maximize guest safety and security, VingCard Essence utilizes the most advanced encryption technology to eliminate the threat of unauthorized keycard cloning. It is also designed to be future-proof compatible, providing hoteliers with the ability to seamlessly implement Mobile Access the moment that brand requirements or guest demands change. In addition to ensuring guest security and convenience, VingCard Essence accentuates the chic style of both locations through its minimalistic design, encasing its electronic components within the door itself and exposing only a sleek RFID/BLE compatible reader on the door exterior. Sava was further able to enhance each property's unique aesthetic with the ability to choose from an array of door handle options.
"Having previously worked with ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions, it was a straightforward decision to partner with them again for the recent installations as we were already familiar with the company's industry-leading expertise in hotel security," says Suhas Naik, Principal at Sava Holdings. "From start to finish, ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions ensured a seamless implementation process that not only met individual brand standards, but that also ensured conformity with our own management company identity. With Essence now equipped, this means that we are simultaneously able to bolster guest and staff safety, enhance the attractive design of our locations and ensure future compatibility with Mobile Access as more of our properties seek to make the technology a standard feature."
While providing guests with the ability to go directly to their guestrooms and immediately begin enjoying their hotel stay experience, Mobile Access also ensures their safety at all times. With ASSA ABLOY's patented Seos technology, all digital keys and room number details are fully encrypted and transmitted to guest devices using a secure communications channel. Once received, the information is then stored within a digital vault located within the mobile app. When a guest presents the device to the appropriate door lock, Seos again transmits digital key data via a secure channel, ensuring that only those authorized are ever able to gain access.
