VingCard helps resort prepare for golf tournament

Contactless electronic door locks with cell phone compatibility and state-of-the-art safes from VingCard Elsafe at Scotland’s prestigious golf resort in Turnberry. Turnberry golf course – one of the best in Britain – is expecting a huge influx of guests for the event.

And, to meet increased security needs, Elio Abruzzo, the IT manager for the Turnberry Resort, says that the resort needs to operate more efficiently.  He says VingCard’s secure and reliable system helped the resort meet that goal.

The resort installed the Signature Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) electronic door locks, which allow for contactless guest room entry and are compatible with next-generation NFC cell phones. Turnberry has the option of offering remote check-in to guests with NFC-compatible cell phones, allowing them to skip check-in and use their phones to unlock the door.

“Our staff can now operate more efficiently, not only increasing the productivity of our property, but the overall satisfaction of our guests,” Abruzzo says. “Based on the locks’ features, we can maintain total security at all times, with features such as the patented anti-cloning technology.”

Signature RFID also provides various designer handles and presentation options from key cards to wristbands, creating a sense of ease and exclusivity for hoteliers, says Christian Hénon, president of ASSA ABLOY Hospitality Europe, Middle East and Africa.

 “With Signature RFID, the property was able to choose the right mix of both design and security elements, pleasing guests and hoteliers alike,” Hénon says.

The Ayrshire coast resort also installed the state-of-the-art SENTINEL II by Elsafe in-room safes, which employ the latest locking technology, including anti-tamper labyrinths and solid-steel hinges.
