Insignia Drives Ambitious Hotel Opening Schedule with Kaba’s Reliable, Secure ILCO RFID Locks and Quality Service

Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Odessa, Texas

ILCO RFID locks cost about the same as mag-stripe units and always work. RFID technology eliminated the problem of erased keys. It is more than reliable and secure; it is the future of door-lock technology.

Insignia Hospitality Group, based in Midland, Texas operates 12 properties with seven flags. Darpan Bhakta, Insignia’s president, said, “We are a long way from the nearest large city, so we rely on a select group of vendors to keep our properties provided with everything they need to operate efficiently. All of our hotels, regardless of the flag, have ILCO electronic locks from Kaba. ILCO’s locking systems are secure, reliable, and cost effective.”

‘The future of door-lock technology’
Insignia owns Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express brands, Fairfield Inn & Suites, Springhill Suites, Residence Inn brands by Marriott, and Hilton’s Hampton Inn & Suites. “When we develop a new property, we look ahead to the equipment we believe our brands will adopt in the future,” Bhakta said. “We only install ILCO 790 RFID locks in our new hotels. We will retrofit our existing properties with these locks going forward. ILCO RFID locks cost about the same as mag-stripe units and always work. RFID technology eliminated the problem of erased keys. It is more than reliable and secure; it is the future of door-lock technology.”

‘We trust ILCO’s team; they do business the way we do’
Travelers today expect hotels to provide dependability and security. Quality technical support is just as important for operators. “Kaba’s service teams understand how my properties operate,” Bhakta said. “They consistently meet our opening schedules on time. They do business the way we do. We only do business with companies like Kaba that have earned our trust and provide quality products and services.”

ILCO 790 RFID door locks, cost effective and reliable
Kaba’s ILCO 790 RFID locking system is cost-effective and reliable. It uses the latest access control technology to provide hotel guests with a smooth, contactless room access experience. ILCO’s RFID technology not only provides a first-class guest experience; it also significantly reduces operational overhead. RFID keycards cannot be de-magnetized so hotels do not suffer the cost and inconvenience of issuing replacements. The 790 Series locks are the perfect choice for hotels that want to take their operation and security systems to the next level.
