      Personally, I'm a great believer of the expression 'if it's not broken, don't fix it'. However to contradict myself, I'm also a great believer of innovate or die! Or in this case lose profit. You may not know it yet, but if your hotel is operating with outdated energy saving devices, then the likelihood is that your hotel is losing huge potential profit per guest room.

       

      Like business in general, there a two ways to increase profitability of your hotel:

      1. Increase Revenue 
      2. Decrease Overhead Costs   

      Diving deeper into decreasing overhead costs, you may feel energy bills are almost a fixed cost, But why? Hotel technology has come a long way since its infancy, and with it brings smart hotel opportunities to gain a return on investment and reduce hotel carbon emissions!

       

      Hotel Profit Increase

       

      With the UK hotel market growing at a rapid pace, what are the modern day smart hotels doing differently? And can you really afford to be left behind with energy costs expected to rise by 54% in 2022? 

       

      When you think of energy saving devices and hotels, the energy saving card box most probably springs to mind right? However, this device is becoming ever more redundant in affective energy saving, and here's why the modern hotels are looking for alternative smart hotel energy saving devices:  

      • Cards left in the box can outsmart room status.
      • Cannot detect guest presence.
      • Limited amount of energy saving potential.

      So what are these alternative smart solutions to capitalise on hotel energy savings? The answer is guest room management systems

       

      With 90% of hotel energy waste coming from unattended guest rooms, you can be as creative with these guest room management systems as you wish! If your struggling for inspiration then here's some suggestions on how to utilise smart hotel technology:

      • Integration with hotel door locks & motion sensors to identify room status. 
      • Guest ETA integrated with hotel PMS to prepare room climate accordingly.
      • Curtain automation that captures natural heat sources. 

      If that's given you any inspiration, then you may have some ideas of your own? Messerschmitt Systems are able to turn your bespoke ideas into reality with their own production facility for software and hardware located in Nuremberg, Germany. So if you're looking for long-term sustainability of your hotel, technology could present you with the opportunity.
