At HITEC 2018, Bartech, a supplier of automatic minibar solutions for the hospitality industry, will demonstrate how solutions such as the C32, eTray and DD46 can simultaneously maximize in-room revenues by appealing to guest impulse buying behaviors, while also dramatically reducing expenses through enhanced operational efficiency. Bartech will be located in booth 1420.
Providing flexibile options in minibar functionality and design, the C32 is available as a fully automatic, semi-automatic or manual solution. With a capacity of 40 liters, C32 minibars can store up to 32 products and when equipped with Bartech's advanced sensor technology, can eliminate costly management practices by automatically posting purchases to a guest's profile and by notifying which specific items require restocking. A solution that also enhances guestroom aesthetics, the C32 is available in multiple finishes and can be customized with a glass door featuring a hotel brand's logo to align with property branding.
Also being showcased at HITEC, Bartech's DD46 can provide guests with the convenience of an in-room fridge for personal items, while still allowing the property to benefit from in-room sales. Offering a storage space totaling 70 liters and 2.5 cubic feet, the DD46 provides a left side that is fully automated with the use of micro-switch and magnetic sensors. Along with a right side that is left empty for a guest's own items, the DD46 can also be offered with a top dry selection space. As with the C32, its appearance can be customized to meet any hotel design need.
Bartech's eTray gives hotels the added ability to stock and earn additional revenue from non-refrigerated items. It leverages the same advanced sensor technology to streamline operational management and allow for lower pricing of stocked products. Items that can be made available to guests via the eTray include bottled water, snacks and even toiletries or electronics such as cell phone chargers.
