Hoist Group Destined to Conquer Hotel Locks Market

Hoist Group has finished their first UK based hotel smart locks installation at the renowned The Wentworth Hotel in Aldeburgh.

The charming Country House hotel situated on the beach at Aldeburgh in Suffolk partnered with Hoist Group and installed innovative RFID hotel locks in their property. The 37 locks were mounted onto the existing doors allowing use of RFID cards to open the doors.

“Everyone at The Wentworth was looking forward to this upgrade” – says Michael Pritt,
3rd generation member of the Pritt family who have owned and managed the hotel since 1920. “The previous installation left the doors in a disastrous condition and Hoist not only helped
us to implement the new system but also made sure it looks presentable. We entrusted
our business to a company that has a vision and we are looking forward to future cooperation in other areas.”

Part of Hoist Group’s roadmap is introducing a Mobile Key solution later this year. Primarily,
to allow easy access to hotel rooms, but also giving guests access to a number of useful features directly through their smartphones. Furthermore, hotel owners will receive a very useful marketing tool enabling them to keep in touch with their guests even when they’re not within hotel premises.

“We are a complete, dedicated and innovative partner for small, medium and big hotels. I truly believe that the door lock solution that we are offering fits the need of today’s market.
Hoist has currently 25,000 rooms equipped with our locks across Europe. This first UK based hotel locks installation surely will open more doors for Hoist Group” – says Bob Durie, managing director for North West Europe.

Hoist Group, unlike any other hospitality solution provider, manufactures its own smart door locks. They are a certified product across Europe and EMEA region. That gives Hoist Group flexibility and individual touch to each installation being carried out.

Door locks and other IT solutions offered by Hoist Group will be displayed at HITEC Amsterdam exhibition on 12th & 13th of April.
