By partnering, the companies aim to save up to 100 hours per year in property managers’, owners’ and hosts’ time by making it easier to share the entry code with their guests.
Check-ins have always been one of the most time-consuming processes in the short-term rental industry, and for this reason, smart locks have become something of an industry standard in the past few years, offering a better check-in experience for both hosts and guests.
The partnership will allow Minut to extend its monitoring and automated communication solutions to Nuki’s vast host base.
In March, Minut closed a $14 million Series B funding round, and last month, the company revealed the results of its noise detector pilot programme carried out in partnership with Airbnb in Prague in Czechia.
Meanwhile, Nuki secured more than €20 million in a financing round last August to expand its market leadership in Europe.
