DALLAS—OpenKey and Kaba have signed a letter of intent to create a preferred partnership between the two companies. The strategic partners will initially focus on integrating OpenKey’s mobile entry service with Kaba’s new BLE locks.
“This represents an evolution of OpenKey’s strategic relationship with Kaba,” stated Brian Shedd, OpenKey VP of sales and marketing.
OpenKey is a mobile app that allows authorized and secure keyless entry to hotel rooms via a guest’s personal smartphone. Funded by 12 established hotel owner groups, OpenKey’s technology provides a solution for both hotel guests and front desk staff.
Global Business Owner Lodging Systems of dorma+kaba Group, Alastair Cush, said, “Establishing OpenKey as a preferred partner will build on our quality product offering for hotel operators. Together, Kaba and OpenKey will enable properties to implement Kaba’s mobile key platform and will make the convenience of mobile access available to guests at properties of any size.”
