Nuki, Vikey and Chekin integrate with eviivo

UK: eviivo has partnered with three check-in solutions – Nuki, Vikey and Chekin – to digitise and streamline the check in process.

Integrated with eviivo’s booking and property management platform, Nuki, Vikey and Chekin can now provide guests digital access to eviivo’s properties – including Airbnbs, vacation rentals, boutique hotels and other independent accommodation. 

Nuki is smart lock provider offering a range of electronic door locks that allow guests to access accommodation through digital access authorisation. Nuki is mounted inside an existing door lock and works with Alexa, Google and Apple HomeKit.

Thanks to the cooperation with eviivo, we are one step closer to achieving our vision.”

Vikey is an all-in-one solution for online check-in, helping to automate certain steps of the guest journey such as requests guest identification to the control of AC units. With Vikey, hosts are able to unlock the doors of their accommodation via their phone, or let customers have their own temporary access.

Luca Bernardoni, CEO at Vikey, said: “Vikey and eviivo share the common goal of simplifying self check-in for property owners and hosts, so our new partnership was a natural fit. With the integration, eviivo customers elevate the guest check-in experience, especially at a time when more travellers are seeking seamless solutions when they holiday. We’re looking forward to working with the eviivo team to help properties simplify both operations and guest experiences.”
