Hotels, resorts, motels, bed and breakfasts, villas and other similar establishments are all adopting contactless check in technology to facilitate quick identification of guest by staff. The contactless part of the check-in process is the part that holds the magnetic strip that “reads” the signature of the person scanning the door. Depending on the system used, the signature can be verified either by touch or with a proximity device such as a fingerprint reader or key fob.
This greatly reduces or eliminates the need for manual intervention, which makes the contactless check in system more desirable than any other type of system.
These systems have many benefits
For example, they eliminate the need for manual processing of check-ins. The need for labor-intensive calculations, such as for invalid, incomplete, or mistaken checks results in the delay or even denial of services and deposits. Without these errors, the system is also less prone to fraudulent acts, including theft.
With the use of contactless check in technology, hotel guests do not need a paper check because it is digitally scanned on a memory chip embedded in the top of the card. Upon receipt of the signature, the chip transmits the data (digitally) to the electronic reader, which maintains the information and transfers it electronically to the relevant management agency. The process is instantaneous. No paper check is needed because the signature on the magnetic strip is verified digitally, eliminating the need for it.
It is cost effective
Most hotels and other establishments use the Contactless Check-In system due to its numerous benefits. There are no errors associated with this type of system, and it also takes less time than the traditional check-in process. Since it eliminates the need for manual processing, the process is very efficient. The system also has various options available for both time and location-based services. This reduces operational costs, making it one of the best options for today’s businesses.
With the vast variety of brands now using this innovative technology, it is important to make sure that you choose the right system for your hotel. There are various advantages to this type of technology, ranging from its efficiency to its cost effectiveness. It may be a good choice if you want to embrace the newest trends and embrace the 21st century. There is no doubt that this technology has changed the way people pay, giving them more choices at better prices.
