Volan Technology, the authority in AI-based workplace safety and contact tracing software, and dormakaba, the global leader in hotel access solutions, today announce a revolutionary partnership. A first-ever integration, Volan's state-of-the art micro-location positioning and emergency response technology has been combined with dormakaba's access control systems creating the most advanced enterprise safety and security solution on the market. Hotel and facility operators will now have the capabilities to view their entire staff's locations to quickly respond in the case of an emergency, run precise contact tracing and rostering reports on thousands of people and rooms in seconds, and automatically lock and unlock entry points saving critical minutes in emergency response time, all with one portable device.

Volan's safety technology provides private and precise real-time 3D location positioning of thousands of people using the Volan Positioning System™ (VPS). The patent-pending AI technology and encrypted data is executed with zero dependency on smartphones, GPS or Wi-Fi, making it highly accurate, secure and protective of the privacy of users. A neural mesh network with geofencing capabilities, VPS enables hotels, schools and other large properties to immediately implement safety measures ensuring unmatched security, reliability and quality.

"As a hotelier for over 30 years, the incorporation of new technology with existing hardware and software platforms is an enormous benefit and creates much-needed efficiencies in hotel operations," said Shannon McCallum, Vice President of Hospitality for Volan Technology. "To have RFID capabilities embedded into the VPS sensor provides vital solutions for staff safety and creates exciting possibilities for the future of guest security as well."

Architecture & Design: Wellness is Key


Like every other facet of hotel operations, architecture and design firms are adapting their work to ensure the safety and well-being of both guests and staff. New ways to bring Wellness into hotel spaces are being explored and these solutions are taking on many forms. Hotel designs are incorporating more open floor plans, open air spaces, high ceilings, outdoor areas and operable walls into their spaces. Guests no longer want to be packed into tight areas. More "biophilic" elements are also being incorporated, offering guests the sense of being outdoors. Another trend is the reimagining of guest rooms to support remote work capabilities. Some hotels are converting empty guest rooms into office spaces, complete with effective lighting and suitable backgrounds for video conferencing. Dedicated Zoom Rooms are also becoming increasingly popular. The main goal is to provide guests with a positive experience in a space that feels safe and comfortable. These are some of the architecture and design subjects that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
