Bartech to Demonstrate Latest Advances in Hotel Minibar Design and Technology
Bartech, a provider of profit-generating automatic minibar solutions for the hospitality industry, said it will demonstrate the latest in minibar innovation at this year's upcoming Boutique Design New York (BDNY) show which takes place November 12-13, at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City. Bartech will be demonstrating its standalone eTray, as well as the adaptive Neotray guestroom tabletop solution, and eDrawer.
Bartech offers a wide array of choices in sensor technology, minibar to server communication, software innovations, and customizable minibar design. With Bartech's wireless eTray for example, hoteliers can offer non-refrigerated products without the need to include a coexisting traditional minibar. Equipped with a module that is directly integrated into the solution's electronics, the eTray's wireless ability substantially increases the possibility of offering retail products at lower prices; making items more appealing to guests while still ensuring a return on investment. Costing only one-quarter of the price of a full minibar, the eTray is ideal for mid-range hotels seeking to promote non-refrigerated products such as bottled water, snacks or souvenirs.
Another versatile solution for displaying dry items in the guestroom is Bartech's Neotray. Providing three rows of five sensors to showcase products in a stylish, lockable case, Neotray comes with a transparent lid that can be tailored to reinforce the property's brand with an etched logo. Automatically unlocking upon guest check-in, the Neotray is a cost-effective alternative to traditional refrigerated minibars that can assist in increasing ROI and maximizing operational revenue.
Also showcasing the eDrawer alongside its other solutions, Bartech will also demonstrate how automated minibar technology can be leveraged to not only increase revenue but also enhance guestroom design. Available in any preexisting wood finish and providing a customizable door, the eDrawer is able to accommodate any hotel style or need. As a minibar that is furniture-based, eDrawers are also an ideal solution for guestrooms with limited space. The eDrawer is also equipped with both a dry section and cold cube drawer, allowing hoteliers to offer guests a variety of food and drink options.
