Finalists in Europe's leading innovation competition: SAG and collaboration partner Leapin/Digital Keys at CeBIT 2015
Together with its Australian partner Leapin/Digital Keys, SAG will be participating in the final round of the CODE_N innovation competition as part of the CeBIT 2015 from 16/03 to 20/03/2015 in Hall 16, Stand D30 in Hanover, Germany.
Online-Check-In-solution in the "Hall of Innovation"
Using the theme "Into the Internet of Things", the competition includes the areas of Digital Life, Future Mobility, Smart City and Industry 4.0. Out of 400 participants, 50 finalists were chosen based on criteria such as the degree of innovation, how convincing the business model is or the quality of presentation. Hall 16 will turn into a unique "Hall of Innovation", in which SAG and LEAPIN/Digital Keys will be presenting their joint mobile access solution to trade visitors and the expert jury. On Wednesday, 18/03/2015, at the end of the exhibition day, the winners will be awarded with the prize money of €30.000.
SAG and LEAPIN will present their new function "Online-Check-In" - a web-based application which allows hotel guests to complete their booking/reservation autonomously online, and subsequently gain access to their room by using only their smartphone. "Together with LEAPIN/Digital Keys we have managed to further refine our successful locking system SAFE-O-TRONIC access in order to offer customers in the hotel sector a unique locking system, which meets the requirements of the mobile user", concludes Joaquin Borge Sanchez, head of business unit locking systems.
