Through an integration with the world’s leading PMS, OPERA users now have access to a seamless digital check-in solution that allows 100% of guests to bypass the front desk
AUSTIN, Texas – July 12, 2021 – Virdee, a SaaS company delivering digital check-in and virtual concierge services to the hospitality and commercial real estate industries, has achieved Oracle Validated Integration with Oracle Hospitality Expertise that allows communication with OPERA, the global leader in hotel PMS systems. The partnership empowers hotels running on the OPERA system to leverage Virdee’s unique functionality, bypassing the front desk, marketing room upgrades and early check-in/checkout, assigning rooms, and verifying guest identity with reservation data during the check-in process.
Virdee provides a full contactless check-in experience, empowering 100% of hotel guests to check-in either via kiosk or their mobile device, receive a digital or physical key and head straight to their guestroom without ever standing in line at the front desk.
Expertise is a core tenet of the modernized Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) program and allows Oracle partners to highlight their capabilities in a focused area. Ultimately, Expertise is designed to make it easy for customers to identify partners who can deliver quality solutions and minimize risk for their specific needs.

Through the OPERA integration, Virdee’s identity verification module will securely connect user profiles with reservation data. Prior to completing the check-in process, Virdee will collect a payment method for incidentals and current charges, auto-assign a room, deliver a mobile key or a key card to the guest, and mark the guest as checked in on the Oracle Hospitality OPERA platform.
“We are excited to announce this milestone partnership with Oracle/Opera,” said Virdee Co-Founder Nadav Cornberg. “The demand for a contactless check-in experience skyrocketed during the COVID pandemic and we are proud to partner to offer solutions that keep guests and staff safe while making the process more efficient for both parties.
