Hotelier members of Hotel Technology Next Generation (HTNG)
during its 2012 Most Innovative Hospitality Technology Award ceremony last week in Atlanta at the global trade association's North American Conference. OpenWays' MOBILE KEY TRIO with Triple Play Reader was named a Runner-Up from among 22 entries in the annual award contest that recognizes outstanding new technology development.
OpenWays MOBILE KEY TRIO with Triple Play Reader combines OpenWays CAC™ (Crypto Acoustic Credential), Pure NFC™ and RFID card reading capabilities enabling hoteliers to upgrade their existing locking systems with Mobile Key for guests and Mobile Master Key for staff. When hotels choose to retrofit their existing locks or deploy new lock systems integrated with the OpenWays MOBILE KEY TRIO Triple Play Reader solution, they are investing in a truly deployable, secure, mobile-based room key solution that is 100% compatible today with all mobile phones, 100% future proof, and 0% mobile carrier dependent.
“The shift toward mobile devices, especially in the guest entertainment arena, has been the biggest emerging issue of the past year," said Douglas Rice, HTNG's executive vice president and CEO. "The winners have shown that the vendor community has risen to the challenge and developed important new products to address the rapidly changing needs of hotels and guest.”
