GuestPoint Integration


This article details the main points of the one-way integration between GuestPoint and OpenKey, enabling automated mobile key delivery. 


OpenKey requires Basic Authentication for our PMS integrations. To set up a new property, please contact integrations@openkey.co with the property name and address. From there, we will supply you with the Username and Password for authentication.  

Guest Check-in Flow

1. Find the guest’s reservation in GuestPoint.

2. Open the reservation and ensure the following requirements for issuing a mobile key at check-in are met:

  1. A phone number must be present in the reservation. Country code is required for any international phone numbers (outside the US/Canada).
    • *HINT: If you don’t know the country code, ask the guest. They will happily tell you! But here is a link to a list of all country codes, just in case: https://countrycode.org/ 

3. Complete your normal Check-in process, including verification of ID, payment capturing, room assignment, etc.

4. Encode plastic keys – or bypass this portion if the guest does not need plastic keys. 

  1. Remember to create keys in the appropriate order, according to the type of lock/BLE hardware your hotel uses. See more information here.

The guest is now AUTOMATICALLY added to the OpenKey HOST platform, without the Front Desk Agent needing to access OpenKey. 

*Please be advised, GuestPoint only pushes information to OpenKey every 30 seconds!

  1. When you update the following items in GuestPoint, the guest’s mobile key will automatically update in OpenKey HOST.
    1. Changing the check-out date
    2. Checking a guest out
