Passkey is the most widely used group reservation system provider in the hospitality industry world-wide.

Since first deployed in 1998, the development of the Passkey system has set the standard for citywide housing. Each year Passkey delivers approximately 4.6 million reservations (13.9 million room nights) to hotels. We were one of the first operators of Passkey, and our in-depth exposure to software development for registration and expertise as a true power user of Passkey uniquely qualifies Orchid to engage with Passkey at the product development level, conducting beta tests for new product releases and pinpointing bugs in existing versions.
