Bartech launches BarTouch management software

Bartech introduces BarTouch, a new manual minibar management solution. This web-based application is a first of its kind, helping hotels to more efficiently track in-room consumables sold through any manual minibar, regardless of equipment, making it compatible with non-Bartech minibars as well as snack trays and bottled water display units.

BarTouch is a web-based application that works with all browser types and meets the latest industry security protocols. Minibar attendants can access the software from any smart mobile device, including Android and iOS phones, tablets and laptop computers. Through the software, a guest's consumptions can be posted directly to their folio via the Property Management System (PMS). By bringing this type of intelligence to manual minibar operations, BarTouch allows hotels to capture more revenue, improve refilling efficiency and better manage inventory control. The manual minibar management software also helps to facilitate a more accurate checkout payment and limits front desk disputes, therefore improving guest satisfaction.

BarTouch then takes manual minibar postings to the next level by adding in additional features key to hotel operations. Through the software, minibar attendants can post maintenance issues, such as broken hardware or failing refrigeration. This streamlining of requests for engineering speeds up recovery times and eliminates lost messaging. BarTouch also provides management with statistics on guest consumption so that best selling items can be easily recognized, invoice reporting generated and a true cost of goods and services can be determined.
