StockholmVingcard, an ASSA ABLOY company and leading provider of advanced technologies for the hospitality industry, is honored to today share details regarding its expanding relationship with Meriton Suites, Australia’s largest owner of apartment-style hotel accommodation. With the recent expansion of its portfolio to 23 locations to include Canberra and Melbourne, the Australian group can importantly continue to rely on Vingcard to provide the latest advances in property security- ensuring that its guests can experience a safe and seamless stay, resulting in enhanced satisfaction and loyalty.

While Meriton Suites moved forward with expansion plans using more than $400 million (AUS) in investment, its market-leading presence throughout the region has already earned the brand a reputation for providing travelers with the ultimate in home-away-from-home experiences. In addition to its locations featuring self-contained luxury suites, including a gourmet kitchen and spacious living areas, each property is also able to provide guests with enhanced feelings of safety that is essential to creating a home-like environment.

This is achieved thanks to Vingcard technology being prominently utilized across Meriton Suites’ portfolio of locations. For example, more than 6,000 Vingcard door locks are currently deployed to protect and control access to the brand’s suites. Leveraging a combination of Vingcard Essence, Signature RFID and Classic RFID door locks, Meriton Suites notably gains cutting-edge keycard data encryption abilities that minimize the risk of intruders gaining unauthorized entry. At the same time, each lock’s attractive design and range of handle options also ensures that Meriton Suites can leverage the solutions to enhance each building’s unique style and interior décor. The scalable and future-proof design of each Vingcard lock also means that Meriton Suites can upgrade to enabling Mobile Access as guest demand for digital key services arises at each property.

Australia continues to benefit from a surging domestic and international travel industry, with Meriton Suites committed to providing each visitor with all the comforts of home no matter where they may be staying within the region, said Matthew Thomas, Meriton Suites Group General Manager. Our relationship with Vingcard has been essential to guaranteeing a relaxing stay, with each of its technologies representing the latest in what the industry has to offer in maintaining a safe building environment. We look forward to further expanding our relationship as our portfolio grows and are excited to see what new security capabilities are on the horizon as Vingcard continues to innovate and address the latest market needs.

As a brand that takes a strong stance on sustainability, Meriton Suites leverages its relationship with Vingcard Solutions as a way to adopt advances in eco-friendly practices. This includes utilizing the provider’s range of PETG keycards, a plastic key credential that is only 0.45 mm thick and yet while still durable, ultimately represents less material waste.

At each Meriton Suites location, Vingcard door locks and keycards are supported by the Visionline access management system. Tasked with generating key credentials for staff and visitors while restricting access to unauthorized intruders, Visionline is what provides each property’s employees with the ability to maintain a vigilant watch over potential security risks while still ensuring efficient operations and an uninterrupted guest experience.

As an end-to-end provider of advanced security technologies, Vingcard also extends enhanced safety to the personal belongings of guests staying at a Meriton Suites location with its line of Elsafe Zenith 43 electronic safes. Each Elsafe Zenith 43 solution features cutting-edge anti-tamper labyrinth protocols and is tested to withstand multiple break-in attempts, ensuring that only those with legitimate authorization are able to gain access.
