CheckMate has announced the first in-app integration of its mobile hotel check in platform with an itinerary management tool, launching with Sabre’s award-winning mobile travel app, TripCase.
“At TripCase, we are always looking for new and different ways to provide the best possible travel experience to our users whether through in-house innovations or smart relationships like the one we have with CheckMate,” says Constantine Hallax, vice president of business development for TripCase. “Adding the convenience of mobile hotel check-in simplifies the process so travelers can spend more time focused on the reason for their trip and less time thinking about travel logistics.”
With CheckMate’s guest-centric platform, TripCase users can now bypass lines at the front desk and check in through a few clicks on their mobile device at select hotels. Before they arrive, guests can easily upgrade their rooms, accept special offers, enter contact and payment information, update preferences, and more. When their room is ready, they are notified of where they can then pick up their pre-programmed keys.
“We are extremely happy to be working with TripCase, and we realize the benefits of integrating our mobile check in platform with their real-time travel information are enormous,” explains Drew Patterson, CEO and co-founder of CheckMate. “The mobile device is the most personal technology we own. Mobile engagement is no longer an option; it’s a must-have. This is the future of how we can better serve travelers.”
From a technology standpoint, CheckMate offers a straightforward integration process which gives partners like TripCase an easy opportunity to build on top of existing app properties.
