Hi-tech minibars & minibar solutions

Bartech, the world leader in profit-generating automatic minibar solutions for the hospitality industry, has announced a partnership with INNCOM and certified integration with the company's INNcontrol™ 3 system. INNCOM develops, manufactures, and markets advanced guestroom control systems for the global lodging industry. The Bartech INNCOM partnership will give hotels access to a rooms control system that controls in-room minibars along with various other technologies, in order to maximize operations and minimize costs.

INNCOM's INNcontrol™ 3 system is specifically designed to communicate with intelligent guestroom devices such as Bartech minibars. The system reports on room occupancy, network connectivity and equipment run-time, which helps in a property's preventative maintenance processes, as well as tracking the energy savings being achieved. Additionally, INNcontrol™ 3 communicates with other hotel server-based systems, such as the property-management system, building-automation systems, central electronic-locking systems and work order systems.

As an integrated technology partner, Bartech's automated minibars can be deployed on the existing IT infrastructure of a hotel using INNCOM room controls. This not only makes minibar operations more streamlined and efficient, but also makes installation much quicker, easier and more cost-effective, since no additional wiring is required for deployment. INNCOM primarily relies on ZigBee state-of-the-art wireless communication technology to integrate with a hotel's disparate systems on a common network. Bartech offers a choice of standalone ZigBee wireless network, WiFi, coax cable, twisted pair or Ethernet for server communication with its automatic minibars.

"We are honored to partner with a trusted name like INNCOM, whose room controls network over 800,000 hotel rooms around the world," says Bartech CEO Mario Agrario. "The advantages for hotels using Bartech automatic minibars in conjunction with INNcontrol™ 3 are vast; whether it is a cost savings from the reduction of staff needed and better inventory control, or a more efficient use of resources due to the system's advanced reporting."
