Collaboration brings Scribd’s unlimited reading subscription service to hotel rooms via the KEYPR hospitality platform
KEYPR®, the enterprise technology company whose cloud-based platform is the leader in guest experience and staff optimization, announced today that it has partnered with Scribd, the premier digital reading subscription service, to offer its library of more than 1 million of the best ebooks, audiobooks, and magazines to hotel rooms worldwide.
Scribd VP of Business Development Rama Sadasivan said, “We are thrilled to partner with KEYPR’s diverse and expansive hotel network to bring Scribd to hotel guests around the world. This partnership opens up opportunities for us to reach new readers and offers an enriching alternative to other in-room entertainment options like TV and radio.”
In keeping with KEYPR’s commitment to delivering rich and hassle-free content integrations, the Scribd app will be preloaded onto in-room tablets. Upon signing up for the service, guests will have instant access to bestselling and award-winning books and audiobooks like A Higher Loyalty by James Comey or The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood, as well as leading magazines like Bloomberg Businessweek, TIME, and People.
“We are excited to add Scribd and its impressive library to our growing portfolio of content partners,” said KEYPR COO Mark Anderson. “The Scribd library is a natural fit for guests who are already using the in-room tablets to look for entertainment, and an integration like this will only drive additional platform engagement.”
Scribd is now live across the entirety of KEYPR’s hotel and luxury residence network.
