Seefeld, Germany – 26 July 2023 - straiv and Kiosk Embedded Systems present their joint solution: The Hotel Check-in Kiosk. This solution combines straiv's software with KIOSK Embedded Systems' hardware components and will be available as early as August. The kiosk enables hotel guests to check-in and check-out conveniently and time-savingly themselves and complements straiv's solution portfolio for digital and contactless hotel check-in solutions.
The introduction of the check-in kiosk further contributes to addressing the staff shortage in the hotel industry, digitizing the hotel stay and thereby providing guests with a first-class experience with maximum flexibility. The Stellar TK-2100 Series is a modular kiosk that can be flexibly customized to meet the unique needs of any hotel. It can be seamlessly integrated with existing property management systems and locking systems, provided there is integration to straiv from the respective systems. The check-in kiosk offers guests an alternative to the traditional front desk service to check-in comfortably and independently 24/7 365 days a year.
"By introducing and integrating the check-in kiosk, we are adding another important component to our solution portfolio for a digital and contactless guest journey in hotels. The combination of our software with the high-quality hardware components of Kiosk Embedded Systems enables a first-class experience with high flexibility for our customers.", says Patrick Luik, founder and CEO of straiv GmbH. "Both outdoor kiosks and indoor kiosks are offered in the portfolio, configured specifically to the needs of the respective hotel. Thus, our hotel customers can ensure a smooth and efficient guest journey with the help of our holistic solutions," adds Dr. Josef Schilling, Principal Business Development at straiv GmbH.
Features include the integrated key card solution, as well as the integrated payment terminal. Hotel guests receive their coded room card directly from the machine and can also process payment at the kiosk. This reduces staff workload, and guests benefit from a smooth and efficient check-in experience. Keycard encoding works with all major providers that interface with straiv.
“We are an independent Hardware Vendor, cooperating with the best Eco-Systems Partners per vertical. We mutually have our feet on the ground and offer PMS-, Locking System- and regionally compatible solutions. Straiv has shown massive momentum and being agile within the Eco-System and we are proud to collaborate on European level.” says Hans Peter Nüdling, Managing Director & Group Managing Director Europe, at Kiosk Embedded system GmbH. He adds: “Setting up the check-in kiosk is straightforward for the hotel itself. Hoteliers simply store the terminal link in their browser. Distribution is handled by Kiosk Embedded Systems.”
