HITEC Houston, TX (DATE) -- KEYPR®, the technology company whose enterprise cloud platform is the leader in guest experience and hospitality management, announced today that they have partnered with Häfele, globally-renowned specialists in hospitality hardware, cabinet fittings, and smart architectural systems. As part of a larger tech initiative for Häfele, this integration will allow end users to utilize advanced digital key and in-room technologies such as lighting, audio, and other guest room functionality via the KEYPR platform, ultimately touching all aspects of the guest-facing experience. This partnership will also extend to Intelity on the heels of yesterday’s merger announcement to combine both entities to form the largest, most richly integrated company in hospitality.
Häfele has built a reputation for delivering best-in-class hardware in over 150 countries and, with their latest access and room control technologies, the company is poised to continue their market penetration. The global smart lock vertical has seen dramatic growth recently with Grand View Research forecasting demand for smart locks to reach 135 million units by 2024. With integrated connectivity, mobile guest experience management, room controls, and digital key solutions now as necessities in hospitality, KEYPR’s integration with Häfele benefits both companies, as well as their respective hotel, residential, and cruise line customers.
“KEYPR has positioned itself as best-in-class by placing emphasis on providing a completely seamless, fully integrated digital guest experience,” said Christoph Dechler, Category Manager across new technologies at Häfele. “We are excited to leverage our global strength with a highly trusted brand that shares our values of delivering unparalleled customer service and prioritizing innovation in hospitality.”
