Technology provides mobile check-in for streamlined arrivals and departures
Bethesda, MD – January 06, 2016 – StayNTouch Inc. is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with MGM Resorts International (NYSE:MGM), one of the world’s leading global hospitality companies, to provide an intuitive check-in and check-out process across all of its Las Vegas hotels, leading to increased guest satisfaction, ancillary revenues and a boost in hotel operational efficiency.
Last year, MGM Resorts piloted the StayNTouch platform, a cloud-based mobility platform that offers guests a variety of check-in and check-out options via their smartphone, at ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. The StayNTouch platform performed impressively.
Since rolling out the system at ARIA in April 2015, guests have enjoyed the convenience of mobile check-in with a faster, more seamless process. The success of the program at ARIA led MGM Resorts International to select StayNTouch for its entire Las Vegas hotel portfolio.
“We are delighted to announce our new partnership with MGM Resorts,” said Jos Schaap, CEO and Founder at StayNTouch. “Because of their tireless commitment to improving guest experience through innovation, MGM Resorts continues to be the hospitality leader that others try to emulate. StayNTouch is proud to be part of that innovative mission.”
Sy Esfahani, Chief Information Officer for MGM Resorts International, said, “We continue to evaluate every aspect of the guest experience and how various technologies can enhance the guest visit at our resorts.. The StayNTouch technology enhances our guest experience and streamlines our check-in and check-out process.”
The StayNTouch platform went live at Vdara Hotel & Spa (1,495 suites) in December 2015. Schaap estimates that the entire portfolio will be on line by the end of second quarter 2016.
