KViHotel Deploys ASSA ABLOY Hospitality Mobile Access Solution for Convenient Keyless Guestroom Entry

Newly opened Budapest hotel selects leading provider of hotel security technology for installation of keyless entry with advanced RFID lock technology

Stockholm - April 10, 2018 - ASSA ABLOY Hospitality, innovator of security technologies for the hospitality industry, announces the successful implementation of several of its advanced security and access solutions at KViHotel in Hungary.

Located in Budapest, KViHotel has implemented ASSA ABLOY Hospitality Mobile Access, VingCard Allure electronic door locks and the Visionline software platform to maximize security and enhance the overall guest experience. The new 40-room property is among the first smart hotels in Europe to offer a complete mobile experience through the use of its mobile app, TMRW Hotels, which as an ASSA ABLOY Hospitality certified partner includes the added feature of Mobile Access keyless entry.


After researching several locking system providers, KViHotel opted for the ASSA ABLOY Hospitality solutions based on excellent customer service and the company's ability to provide an all-encompassing solution to meet staff and guest demands. With the installation of ASSA ABLOY Hospitality Mobile Access and VingCard Allure locks, guests can quickly and conveniently enter their room immediately upon arrival with a quick swipe of their mobile device.
"As a new hotel, we knew that a main focus of the design needed to reflect modern industry and guest trends through the adoption of innovative technologies," says Péter Palicz, general manager of KViHotel. "Keyless entry is undoubtedly evolving the hotel guest experience, and with ASSA ABLOY Hospitality's longstanding history of delivering exceptional service and its position as a leader in hotel security technology, we knew its Mobile Access solution was exactly what our hotel needed to appeal to today's tech-savvy guest expectations."
ASSA ABLOY Hospitality Mobile Access is an advanced solution that allows guests to use their mobile device as a digital room key. Operating through secure Seos technology, an encrypted key is delivered securely to a guest's smartphone, which they then use to open their guestroom door, as well as accessing other onsite amenities and secured areas. Using advanced RFID technology, the VingCard Allure electronic lock features a unique interactive and customizable LED panel that is housed on the wall adjacent to the guestroom door, rather than on the door itself. An additional feature available to KViHotel guests is the ability to post 'do not disturb' or 'make up room' notifications to allow hotel staff to easily know when they are able to freely enter a guestroom for housekeeping and other services. Though the use of the Visionline system, hotel staff can remotely control who has access to certain areas on property and when. Since the installation, KViHotel has experienced positive feedback from guests enjoying the benefit of being able to bypass the front desk and enter their room immediately upon arrival with their own smartphones. Hotel staff has also benefited greatly from ASSA ABLOY Hospitality's customer support, as the team was committed to ensuring that all needs of the property were met to create a streamlined and convenient service for hotel guests and staff.

BASICS OF HOTEL BRANDING: WHY? WHAT? HOW?

14 March 2018

You may be the best property in town, but unless you’re able to pitch this to your customers in a manner that will break through the clutter and attract their attention, you cannot grow. This in a nutshell is why you need branding.


Let’s start at the beginning. What is branding? Why you need it?

A brand is the image and identification of a company or entity that tells the consumer all about the company. A strong brand is vital for encouraging direct bookings, along with dozens of other benefits. It is a trigger that will help people choose you over the unknown. Think of the Marriott ‘M’ versus another property. If rates and other comparatives are same, which one are you more likely to go with?
Branding allows you to drive more direct bookings, compete more strongly against competitors on OTAs, and take control of your message and your online presence.

How to build a successful hotel brand?

The key to branding is to have a very distinct and unique selling proposition that will appeal to a targeted audience. Let’s break this into easy tips for brand building.


What’s your story?

What sets you apart from the others? Is it your design, a historic tale or your service style? Put on a guest’s hat and see what your point of difference is. Build your brand around this unique story. Connect with your users on an emotional level in order to create an environment that is interesting and engaging.

Brand to a specific market segment.

Instead of being nothing to everybody, be something to fewer people. Build your brand with this audience in mind. For instance if you’re targeting millennials, emphasise on your cutting-edge design and digital facilities. A family property would rather focus on play areas and childcare facilities.

Build a strong visual identity.

Your brand identity should carry from your logo right down to your stationery, online ads and other branded material. Your visuals should reflect your hotel and its unique story. But remember, at the end of the day these are just visuals – your real brand is you story, not the logo.

Connect on an emotional level.

Your property is more than four walls and a bed. If you connect with a consumer’s need for romance, adventure or another emotion, you can build a longer lasting brand, even demand a premium for it.

Get smart about marketing your brand.

Not everyone has deep pockets like the Hilton or Marriott. Be selective about how you market your brand – to whom and where. A targeted approach is not just efficient, it is more effective. You may reach fewer people and at a higher cost, but the conversion will be higher.
At the same time, make it easy for your guests to market you. In the age of social media  explosion, if you have a good story to tell, your guests will spread the word for you.  

Brand building is not for a select few with deep pockets. If you create your unique story and sell it to a smaller, targeted travel market, the result will be sustainable profitability. Visit here to know more

Our Founding Spirit, Alive Today

At TOTO, we’ve always been inspired by a desire to improve everyone’s quality of life. Through almost a century rich with innovation, TOTO has changed the perception of what a bathroom can be — and how it can be used.

Our founder, Kazuchika Okura, had a vision more than one hundred years ago in 1912, before the concept of public sewage systems was widespread in Japan. After seeing more advanced systems overseas, he was moved to establish a ceramic sanitary ware laboratory to develop healthier and cleaner living spaces.

In 1917, Okura founded Toyo Toki K.K. (which became known as TOTO LTD.) to supply the market with these products. TOTO was founded on a commitment to provide a comfortable living space for people, while always protecting the planet and its water.

Japan’s rich artistic heritage in pottery and porcelain is alive in every TOTO product we create today. Throughout our expansion worldwide, TOTO has remained true to the Japanese traditions that have shaped our Company Motto and Philosophy.

TOTO Motto
created in 1962
Take pride in your work, and strive to do your best.
Quality and Uniformity | Service and Trust | Cooperation and Prosperity


TOTO Philosophy
TOTO strives to create a great company that is trusted by people around the world and to contribute to the betterment of society.

To achieve our philosophy, TOTO will:
  • Create an enriched and more comfortable lifestyle and culture built on our plumbing products.
  • Pursue customer satisfaction by exceeding expectations with our products and services.
  • Provide high-quality products and services through ongoing research and development.
  • Protect the global environment by conserving finite natural resources and energy.
  • Create an employee friendly work environment that respects individuality.

SHR Announces New CRS Product, Global PMS Integrations, and European Direct Connect


HOUSTON, TX, January 22, 2018—SHR, Sceptre Hospitality Resources, a leading provider and pioneer of advanced hotel distribution technologies, has unveiled a new CRS product, in addition to three new global Property Management System (PMS) integrations for its Windsurfer® CRS, and a powerful new direct connect with one of the largest Online Travel Agencies (OTAs) in Europe.

New CRS Product

Expanding on its legacy of innovative CRS solutions, and in direct response to market demand, the company is now offering a new CRS product, Windsurfer® CRS Essentials.

A truly new Windsurfer, Essentials is a streamlined CRS and booking engine designed to better-serve hoteliers who need a leaner way to manage distribution for their growing hotels.

In addition, the SHR flagship product, Windsurfer CRS, has been renamed Windsurfer® CRS Enterprise, and enhanced with a new look and feel geared toward hotel groups and chains that require a full-service CRS.

“To stay competitive, our clients need CRS options that can be customized to better fit their changing needs,” said Doug Tucker, Product Manager for SHR. “The new and enhanced Windsurfer products are now geared to provide this, and will serve a fuller range of hotel businesses the way they want to be served.”

New Global PMS Integrations—Protel, VHP, and Oasis

As part of SHR’s continuing commitment to provide additional and more robust integrations to its hotel partners around the world, the company is also adding three new PMS options.

Protel Hotel Software caters to a full range of hotels, from independent to large multi-national chains. Serving the global hotel market for 22 years in over 90 countries, Protel is currently one of the largest PMS providers in the European and Asia-Pacific (APAC) regions.

Visual Hotel Program, VHP, is a PMS created by Supranusa Sindata that serves primarily the Indonesian market. As a fully-integrated, modular business intelligence solution for the region’s hotel industry, VHP allows hotel operators to provide better customer service while achieving increased hotel management efficiency for their daily operations.

The Oasis Hospitality Software PMS, emphasizing a fully-mobile guest and staff experience from check-in to housekeeping, serves hotels based in China and others in the APAC region, including Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, Macau, Indonesia, Thailand, Laos, the Philippines, and Hong Kong.

“SHR is committed to bringing integrations that are going to be meaningful to our global clients, and this includes our fast-growing European and APAC markets,” said SHR’s Dave Chan, Vice President of Finance and Corporate Development, APAC. “By providing interfaces with Protel, VHP, and Oasis, we will be rounding out and at the same time, expanding our offerings for hoteliers throughout these regions, helping them better-serve their businesses and their guests.”

New European Direct Connect—HRS

Based in Germany, Hotel Reservation Service, HRS, is one of the largest OTAs in the European market. By having the option of a direct connect to HRS, SHR clients will now have the opportunity to gain additional transactions at lower costs from this OTA and its entire global market. While HRS is primarily geared toward European hotels, U.S.-based hotels have also seen success adding this channel due to its ability to capture the attention of global travelers looking to visit stateside.

“Having such a popular OTA connection serves a dual purpose for our clients and their guests,” said Zsuzsanna Albrecht, Regional Vice President of Sales, SHR-Europe. “With HRS, we will be able to serve those hotels who currently work with HRS, as well as bring a powerful and valuable direct connect to other clients who may be looking to expand their connectivity.”

About SHR
Headquartered in Houston, Texas, with offices in Europe and Asia-Pacific, SHR provides advanced tools and services that help hotels execute their best distribution strategy while delighting guests and optimizing profitability. The technical maturity of SHR—having built not one but two Central Reservations Systems (CRS)—is second to none. In addition to serving thousands of properties around the globe with the Windsurfer® CRS and Booking Engine, the company also provides Revenue Management for Hire to brands, chains, and management companies. SHR brings hoteliers nimble technology, intelligently supported by tested industry experts—keeping hotels competitive. For more information, please visit www.shr.global.

SHR is the trade name for Sceptre Hospitality Resources, LLC, a Delaware Limited Liability Company.
