WHAT IS Y!KES

Our mission is to open the door to unlimited interactions and redefine relationships
between businesses and consumers in a simple way by leveraging h(app)y proximity technology.
For example, y!kes empowers travelers with the ability to use their mobile smartphones to bypass the check-in counter,
go directly to their room and access their room… all while their smartphone literally sits in their pocket.

Our goal is to offer hotels and their guests a h(app)y experience.

 

Think Simple
Guests:
  • What if you could by-pass the check-in counter and directly access your room using your smart phone sitting in your pocket?
  • What if you could notify the hotel of your arrival so that your room is ready when you enter the property?
  • What if you could control your stay (room temperature, TV, wake-up call, room service, spa reservation…) using only one device?

What if… there were endless possibilities?

Think h(app)y
Hotel:
  • Customer experience − allow the guest to have a personalized connection
  • Brand Loyalty − do you want to be remembered for the next reservation, and the next reservation; about all future reservations?
  • Operational leniency − what if you can allocate more resources to interacting with the guest and less to back-end processes?
  • Automate operations − help Housekeeping save time and provide availability of rooms faster
AND IT’S JUST THE START…

Direct to room

This service component simply permits access to a guest room. When in a designated proximity, guest receives notification on their smartphone that their room is ready, what the guest’s room number is and checks a guest in after providing an identifying code. You’re checked in when you walk in… and your mobile phone is your key.

Guest Experience Software

This service component provides a guest with the ability to customize the room to individual preferences. Like the room at 72 degrees? y!kes can do that. Want to manipulate the lights or the TV? No problem. Not only is a guest’s experience made better… as a hotelier, you can get some valuable insights about what your guests like, and what they like to do.

Travel Platform

This service component is in development and extends the guest experience beyond the hotel walls. Imagine having a customized experience when you fly, go to the mall or visit your favorite coffee shop. It’s closer than you think.

  • CHECK-IN WHEN YOU WALK-IN

    y!kes tells the hotel you’ve arrived so you can bypass the front desk and head straight to your room.

  • DO NOT DISTURB

    y!kes locks the door securely behind you, and tells housekeeping when the room is occupied.

    y!kes will check you out when you leave, automatically, and will email you a receipt for your stay.
