Improved hotel check-in with face authentication capabilities

LISBON, PORTUGAL, January 11, 2023 / -- YooniK announced today a partnership with Host Hotel Systems, a leading provider of property management systems for the hospitality industry, to bring a new online and in-person check-in experience. Through this partnership, YooniK will enable Host Hotel Systems to offer their hotel clients the option of implementing face authentication for guest check-in. This new feature will allow guests to use their facial biometrics and virtually any passport or citizen card as a form of identification, streamlining the check-in process, and providing an extra layer of security.

“We're excited to partner with Host Hotel Systems to bring this innovative check-in experience to hotels," said Pedro Torres, CEO and co-founder of YooniK. "It will be a major milestone in offering guests an amazing experience, allowing them to save precious time while performing their check-in with confidence and convenience. And for hoteliers, better guest experience means better reviews and more revenue per available room.”

“Digitization is a priority in Host Hotel Systems’ mission and partnering with YooniK for check-in automation brings our clients closer to our vision of a seamless guest experience”, explains João Freitas, Director of Growth & Partnerships at Host Hotel Systems. "Revolutionary technologies, such as automated check-in, are essential in allowing hotel staff to focus on guests rather than worrying about processes, and also enable hotel owners to reduce structural costs with operations and hardware."

The face authentication feature will be available as an optional add-on to the Host Hotel Systems Property Management System. Hotels already using Host as their PMS that are interested in this feature can contact Host Hotel Systems directly to activate this feature. If you're not yet using the solution, but want to find out more, fill out this form.

Details on the feature are available on YooniK website.
