Chekin is a tool that makes your guest check-in processes much easier as it provides your guests with an option to check-in online. It ensures that legal documentation gets automatically sent to the Police, and eliminates the necessity to deliver keys to your guests through a fully automated self-check-in solution. To find out more about Chekin's features, take a look at this article.
💡 Note: You will need to create a new Chekin account in order to connect Lodgify to Chekin. If you already have an existing Chekin account, take a look at the FAQ section of this article.
