How Tynatech can Improve Hotel Performance!!
Improve the Occupancy of Hotel and Resorts
Hotels are an indispensable part of today’s travel industry. Even after the impacts of the pandemic, there are more than 700,000 hotels and resorts worldwide that have a global market worth $800 billion .COVID-19 has evidently hampered travel activity, but there is an imminent “travel boom” and calls for the industry to invest in digital innovation to capture this post-pandemic growth .
One costly area ready for optimization is hotel maintenance, which can take up to 60% of a hotel’s operating costs . Within maintenance, there is a major growing expense: water leaks and accordingly Hotel Performance. Major hotels estimated that around 250 litres of freshwater is used per guest room a day, this only emphasizes the scale at which hotels use water. With more water utilities that expand from guest bathrooms, large commercial kitchens, swimming pools and heating, this creates a complex network of pipes, at a range of temperatures and pressures, that increase the likelihood of a leak. Hotel architecture also unfortunately favors more leaks. Some multi-story hotels stack bathrooms in the same location floor on floor creating an impending domino effect if there is a leak on the top floor. Additionally, water sources are pressurized more in order to reach higher floors which can cause more wear and tear on the water network. New construction methods such as using modular kitchen, bathroom units or underfloor heating also mean that initial signs of leaks can be hidden and only appear when there is serious damage.
With some hotels starting back up again into full occupancy after the standstill of the pandemic, the downtime can cause pipes to corrode so when recommissioned, unexpected leaks can arise.
Damaging a hotel’s brand not just finances. The direct costs of wasting water can build up over time. For example a leaking tap can increase water consumption by 5% and an eighth-inch pipe crack can cause 250 litres of water waste per day. The statistics go on, but for hotels, the costs do not stop with the water. A major leak took place at a five-star resort where water was pouring from a collapsed ceiling, This delayed a conference being held on the lower-floor convention center as well as disrupting the electric supply for the other customers staying in the 321 room hotel. Sure, there was damage to the ceiling which can be fixed; however, those rooms could no longer be booked, losing the hotel key business. Furthermore, for all the disturbed occupants, the leak can delay their time and potentially damage their belongings. All these factors can ruin a guest’s visit and a hotel’s reputation.
How can Our Solutions be suited for the hotel?
As hotels get larger, it is clear that there are more opportunities for water leaks, highlighting the need for scalability. What we are seeing in the current water leak sensing market is that sensors are only being placed near critical areas which may create leak detection blind spots. TYNATECH has addressed these needs by developing water leak detection solutions with a flexible form factor. We have explored multiple sources that emphasize how hotels need to keep one-step-ahead of water leaks in order to prevent regretful costs. Therefore, as the travel industry opens up, it is vital that hotels catch onto smart monitoring systems, just as other commercial properties have already done so. Digitizing common maintenance issues is key to the movement for smart hotels which leverage “better guest experience, personalized services and automation”
