HFTP CAS Spotlight

Check out the latest in check-in automation — through the HFTP Corporate Allied Sponsorship (CAS) program, get to know companies like Virdee, a leader in guest experience technology. With mobile web, app and kiosk options, Virdee puts access and amenities at guests' fingertips. From initial reception to secure identity verification and room upgrades, the entire experience is contactless.

"We've been big fans of HITEC since Virdee was founded. The layout, the locations and the attendees are all top-notch," says David Schnepp, vice president of marketing for Virdee. "Aside from meeting future clients at the conference, we have also made industry-wide connections that have benefited Virdee's continued growth."

What Virdee Has to Offer

For properties, Virdee technology unlocks new revenue streams, saves staff time and increases guest satisfaction and retention. Following the pandemic, properties are still having trouble with staffing, and Virdee's technology enables offering the same—or even improved—guest experience despite staffing issues.

For guests, this same technology becomes an amenity. Guests' expectations of contactless options have accelerated and they now vote with their wallets for properties offering contactless solutions. Virdee lets guests customize their stay on their terms.

Virdee is always innovating and working with clients to ensure their needs are met. That level of consumer engagement is what sets them apart in the industry and Virdee has staffed their client success team accordingly to keep that exceptional level of support going. From the very beginning with the design of the company's first kiosk (focusing on simple, reliable and attractive enough for any lobby), the Virdee team has developed several features specifically because of client feedback and needs. Customizable features, including keycard/wristband dispensing and identity verification, come standard with each Virdee self-service machine.

Virdee recently closed an oversubscribed Series A fundraise with $12.4M raised that will allow them to dedicate even more resources to existing and future clients and continue to innovate the guest experience.

"For hospitality brands, Virdee's pursuit of streamlining and simplifying the hotel check-in process and digital guest experience has resulted in an offering that is truly a value-add with incredible speed-to-market. As we innovate and add new features, we see our client base expand in kind," says Virdee co-founder Nadav Cornberg. "In founding a company such as Virdee, our key goal has always been to deliver unparalleled value to the hospitality marketplace."
