P3 Hotel Software, a member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), today announced that it has achieved Oracle Validated Integration with Oracle Hospitality Hotel Expertise for the integration of its Online Check-in/Check-out software solution with Oracle Hospitality OPERA.
Expertise is a core tenet of the modernized Oracle PartnerNetwP3ork (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.
In order to achieve the Oracle Validated Integration with Oracle Hospitality Hotel Expertise, partners like P3 Hotel Software must meet a series of qualifiers, including demonstrating that the integration performs as documented.

P3 Online Check-in/Check-Out helps drive operational efficiency and encourages direct customer engagement on hotels’ websites. These solutions save time as guests can bypass reception and complete the check-in and check-out process using their own personal devices.
P3 Hotel Software CEO, Phelim Pekaar, said: "As hotels face the impact of Covid-19 and the need for social distancing requirements, P3 Online Check-in/Check-Out helps protect staff and guests by reducing queues and facilitating a quicker arrival experience. The integrated payment solutions and mobile key technology means guests can take advantage of a fully contactless check-in and check-out using just their smartphones."
"Achieving Oracle Validated Integration Expertise for our Online Check-in/Check-out is important for demonstrating to customers that our products are high-quality and integrate seamlessly with Oracle Hospitality OPERA. They deliver real efficiencies for hoteliers that can help maximise revenue."
David Hicks, vice president, Worldwide ISV Cloud Business Development, Oracle, said: "Achieving Oracle Validated Integration with Oracle Hospitality Hotel Expertise gives our customers the confidence that the integration of P3 Online Check-in/Check-Out is functionally sound and performs as tested. For solutions deployed on premise, in the cloud, or both, Oracle Validated Integration applies a rigorous technical review process that helps to reduce deployment risk and improves the user experience of the partner’s integrated offering."
P3 Online Check-in/Check-Out is designed to work exclusively with Oracle Hospitality OPERA. The products are integrated via the Kiosk and OPERA Web Services (OWS) interfaces and facilitate an enhanced experience for guests, with reduced friction points for both guests and hotel operators.
Guests receive automated emails prior to arrival, inviting them to check in online by computer, tablet or smartphone. Guests click a link in the email that takes them directly to the hotel website’s online check-in process. All required guest data for check-in, such as digital signatures and passport IDs, can be captured before arriving at the hotel, while the solution also integrates with online payment providers.
When combined with the OWS interface, P3 Online Check-in/Check-Out can enable additional customer upsell features, including room upgrades and in-house add-on packages such as breakfast, dinner or spa treatments.
In the online check-out process, guests have access to the invoice of their stay and can pay for any outstanding in-room charges on their bill by credit card. Once they complete their check out, it will automatically update the OPERA system to change the status of the room. This update is automatically sent to the housekeeping staff to inform them which departure rooms are empty and ready for cleaning.
