HotelKey, a developer and service provider of revolutionary hotel business management software, has selected mobile document recognition technologies developed by Smart Engines.
HotelKey is an international company headquartered in Dallas, Texas (USA). The company’s main product is a cloud based hotel management system with additional mobile apps for maintenance, housekeeping, management/reports, etc.
The integration of document recognition software from Smart Engines in HotelKey mobile applications allows near-instant entry of guest ID information through the scanning of a passport. After the passport with MRZ has been scanned using a smartphone or tablet, the guest information is immediately entered into the HotelKey application, negating the need for a user to manually enter all of the guest information.
The main technological advantage of Smart Engines’ solution is high-precision document recognition using video stream performed securely on the device itself.
According to HotelKey CEO Fareed Ahmad: “Document recognition on mobile devices is revolutionary for the hotel industry. A partnership with Smart Engines has allowed us to deploy innovative advances in guests service, as well mobile self-service during booking and registration.”
