KEYPR®, the leading hospitality technology company whose cloud-based platform integrates an end-to-end hospitality experience for guests and staff through embedded and mobile devices, announced today that CGI Strategies' newest luxury residential property, The KODO, has deployed its expansive hospitality platform.


"Our strategy has always been to design and engineer a luxury building that is innovative and provides convenience for our residents," said CGI President and Founder Gidi Cohen. "By taking advantage of KEYPR's full platform, The KODO will offer residents a first-class and unobtrusive way to connect, communicate, and access one of LA's most culturally rich neighborhoods along with all of The KODO's amenities and services."

Through KEYPR's robust platform, The KODO's residents will have access to a custom mobile app, digital key and in-room tablets, while staff will have access to KEYPR's Guest Experience Management System (GEMS®) to manage requests and general communication. The customized platform features offer operational efficiency, incremental revenue streams, and content integrations that stay one step ahead of tech-savvy residents' expectations. Additionally, KEYPR makes it easy for residents to seamlessly engage with local businesses, and offers amenities that take advantage of the prime location in Koreatown, including grocery delivery, reservations to local hot spots, third party content apps such as iHeartRadio and Wall Street Journal, and more.

"CGI has developed a uniquely modern building in what is Los Angeles' most up-and-coming neighborhood," said KEYPR Co-Founder and SVP Sabir Jaffer. "We are thrilled to participate in The KODO's brand of elevated, boutique hotel-style residential living."


KEYPR® is a cloud-based guest experience and management platform for hotels, casinos and residential properties. The platform delivers a friction-free personalized guest experience, while creating new operational efficiencies and driving additional revenue opportunities for property owners. Guests can access a directory of services, including dining, entertainment, third-party content and more through an in-room tablet and custom mobile app. The app also allows guests to bypass the front desk via keyless entry. Additionally, owners and managers gain valuable insight through the integrated dashboard (GEMS®) and intuitive tools that provide visibility into guest needs before, during and after their stay – all while easily monitoring operational KPIs across multiple properties.
