Get to know fácil

A Cloud-based platform that enables the hotels to be digital—instantly. We deliver a SaaS within mobile check-in & check-out, digital key, indoor positioning, orders and much more!

Who are we?

Fácil is a Norwegian start-up, that  was founded in 2016 by two frequent travelers. They were frustrated over queuing during check-in and check-out, and they realized that hotels had been stuck in time and were in a desperate need for change. This lead to our fantastic platform that enables hotels to be digital—instantly.

We have built a product, that supports both hotels and travelers. Today, with partners such as ASSA ABLOY, Salto Systems, Techotel and more. Our app allows your guest to check-in, check-out and use mobile access at the front door. This gives your staff more time to personally care about your guest and the opportunity to sell more relevant product and services.

What makes us different?

Our founders Alexander and Andreas has been traveling to many countries and during their visits, they experienced travel hurdles that they wanted to solve with an application. Since they didn’t find the right one that could handle more than check-in and check-out, they started to develop one.

Fácil is a user-friendly app, which is compatible with both Android and IOS devices.

Besides avoiding the queuing at the reception there are a lot of other benefits such as keyless access to the rooms, ordering a cab or simply book a spa treatment through the application. It gives the feeling of comfort to the guests and makes everything easily accessible with less effort.
