"We are excited to partner with Vertus Group to bring our revolutionary mobile app and digital key technology to Chorum's superb roster of hotels," said Stuart Butler, COO at Fuel. "Given guest's fears surrounding COVID-19 and the desire for more safety and reduced contact with staff, the contactless or reduced-contact functionality that this app provides will give these hotels a massive competitive advantage during recovery.
