Bartech Demonstrates Advances in Hotel Minibar Revenue-enhancing Technology at HITEC 2018

Bartech Systems International Inc. 12 June 2018
Houston -- June 13, 2018 -- Bartech, a world leader in profit-generating automatic minibar solutions for the hospitality industry, is set to exhibit the latest developments in minibar technology and design at HITEC 2018, taking place June 18 - 21, at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, Texas. Located at booth #1420, Bartech 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.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 and entices guests with its appealing design, 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."Hotel minibars have always served the purpose of addressing guest demands for instant service and their nature toward impulsive buying, two characteristics that have only grown more prevalent with today's consumers as a result of new technology and faster-paced lifestyles," said Bartech president and CEO Mario Agrario. "We are proud to provide HITEC attendees with the opportunity to see how Bartech minibar solutions have adapted to precisely meet these needs in a way that maximizes both guest satisfaction and hotel profits."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 innovative eTray gives hotels the added ability to stock and earn additional revenue from non-refrigerated items. Without requiring a co-existing minibar and at a fraction of its cost, the eTray nonetheless 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.

Bartech Bolsters Global Market Position with Expanded Presence in Asia, Latin America and Caribbean

Bartech Systems International Inc. 6 June 2017
Las Vegas -- Bartech, a world leader in profit-generating automatic minibar solutions for the hospitality industry, has significantly expanded its presence in some of the world's fasting growing travel markets, with recent installations at properties in seven key regions. Over the past year, new hotel properties in such far-flung international hot spots as Macau, the Dominican Republic and the Bahamas have all begun leveraging the enhanced revenue and guest satisfaction opportunities that Bartech's automated minibar technology provides. In addition, hoteliers in the burgeoning hospitality markets of Latin American nations Nicaragua, Honduras and Colombia are rapidly turning to Bartech's automated minibar functionality, in order to provide a service amenity that is affordable, caters to guest needs, increases operational efficiency and maximizes revenues.Deemed as the "Vegas of China," Macau is a booming tourism market, well known for its rapid rise to one of the world's most popular gaming destinations over the past decade. It is also as a market that is leading the way in adoption rates for automated minibars in the hospitality industry. As an innovator of cutting-edge automated technology, Bartech serves as Macau's leading provider of advanced minibar platforms, with approximately 10,000 of the region's new guestrooms installed with its solutions to date.

Such functionality not only enhances a hotel's ability to track individual minibar inventory levels and restock only when needed, but also allows properties to reduce item prices, due to the dramatic decrease in resources needed to maintain service. With more reasonably priced selections available in the room, guests are more incentivized to make purchases, enhancing convenience and satisfaction with their stay, while boosting property profits."We are proud to see our presence expanding in such high-performing hospitality markets, and are even more thrilled to be able to assist regional hoteliers with their own efforts in increasing both property business and reputation," said Bruno Agrario at Bartech.
