The enterprise has developed an identity management technology that uses low energy Bluetooth-based iBeacons to alert front desk staff of guests’ imminent arrival, facilitating automatic check-in and avoiding long waiting times at reception. Hotels can use this technology to allow guests to bypass reception and unlock their hotel rooms with the help of their smartphones. This inventive solution won the inaugural ‘Next Big Thing Travel & Hospitality Technology Award’ and the ‘Most Innovative Startup Award’ at the Travel Innovation Summit at this year’s Phocuswright Conference.

Company’s goal is primarily re-defining the hotel check in experience. This move is an advancement in acquiring a great consumer base. Jumeirah’s name in the roster definitely adds some promising business for Proxce in the coming times.

The CEO shares;

“We are excited to partner with Jumeirah to provide a state-of-the-art identity management and mobile check-in experience. The Jumeirah group has always been at the forefront of innovation especially when it comes to providing exceptional guest experience and we are proud to be a part of that.”
