Marina Bay Sands chooses Bartech's Minibar Management System‎

June 15th, 2010

The recently opened, architecturally-stunning business, leisure and entertainment destination, Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, has chosen Bartech to install automated Minibars in all of its 2,561 rooms and suites.

Bartech was selected by Marina Bay Sands to allow operation of its mini-bar department in the most efficient way, ensuring the best service and quality for its guests, and make use of the unique energy saving system that is integrated in the Bartech Software. “Operating Minibars efficiently in 2,561 rooms spread over 3 towers and 55 stories requires the right tool, and Bartech offers that to Marina Bay Sands Management” said Jan Strijker, Managing Director of Bartech Asia Pacific. “We are also extremely proud to take part in this fantastic project in Singapore”. With Bartech Automatic Mini-bars installed in hotels from 19 to 3,000 rooms in Asia Pacific, hotel operators increasingly recognize the many benefits Bartech has to offer. The Bartech software automatically posts mini-bar charges to the room folio through an advanced interface with the hotel’s Property Management System resulting in loss reduction and accurate stock control. An automatic refill report provides in-room dining staff with the list of items to be refilled per mini-bar thus limiting the quantity of rooms to be controlled to those where products have been touched or consumed. This tremendously improves operating efficiency and leads to decreased labour costs. Thanks to the automatic billing of charges, the hotel staff does not have to disturb guests to check whether they have had something from the mini-bar anymore. In case of a dispute, a short-cut further allows the Front desk staff to easily check the status of products inside the mini-bar in real-time resulting in optimal service quality and quicker check-outs. Among other powerful features that assist in the reduction of operational costs and provides substantial energy savings, the C.E.S.S option (Computerized Energy Saving System) allows the hotel to set up cold production inside mini-bars according to room status (occupied, vacant, under maintenance) and time. All Bartech automatic mini-bars comply with WEEE, RoHS, ISO, CSA, FCC and UL certification requirements. Already installed in some other large hotel casinos world-wide including Las Vegas Sands Corp.’s Venetian Resort Hotel Macau and the combined Venetian and Palazzo complex in Las Vegas, the Bartech system has a proven ability to manage sites with thousands of rooms with the greatest efficiency.
