Recently, we've onboarded a few new suppliers that we think will be a great fit for Beacon. In this blog post, we'll introduce you to some of these latest additions and tell you a bit about the benefits they can bring you. We're confident that these new supply partners will help us to provide an even better service to our customers and we're excited to introduce them to you.


Zusi


Are you failing to invest in digital transformation? Is a lack of digital integration having a negative effect on your guest’s experience? If so, then Zusi can help. Their fully unified and integrated communication systems enable you to provide guests with a high-end service without the high price tag. And their easy to manage hotel Private Branch eXchange (PBX) could make the difference between excellent Trip Advisor reviews and mediocre ones.


As well as all the fundamental communication capabilities you would expect, they can deliver a hotel phone system which ensures effortless communication internally between the guest and reception’s front desk. It also has a range of features and benefits to give you the tools to optimise the guest experience at every stage. Multiple in-room features and seamless integration with hotel management systems also give added functionality.


Internally, hoteliers can ensure processes are streamlined and operational efficiency is maximised with accurate information delivered across departments quickly so that hotel staff can manage guest requests efficiently and effectively.


With their system, adding and removing extensions is a breeze – there's no need for a per-user license. You can use your existing infrastructure and low-cost devices, and it will plug and play with IP phones, SIP trunks and gateways. You can also identify guest calls with caller ID and personalise greetings. And when a guest leaves, you can delete their old voicemail and reconfigure the extension with the new guest's name.


The PBX also allows guests to schedule wake-up calls and do not disturb requests. Plus, you can instantly respond to Facebook page queries directly from your management console. It also integrates with Protel, roomMaster, Micros-Fidelio and more. And on top of all that, you'll see the guest's name on reception, room service and management phones. When it's time to check out, everything will be ready for billing as it has an easy check-out function. So why wait? Contact us today about Zusi’s innovative products and services, and we’ll put you in touch for a no obligation informal chat.

Too Good To Go


Every day, delicious, fresh food goes to waste at businesses right across the hospitality sector - just because it hasn’t sold in time. The Too Good To Go app lets consumers buy and collect this food - at a great price - so it gets eaten instead of wasted.


Eating out can be an expensive proposition, especially during the current cost-of-living crisis when budgets have to be stretched further. However, by connecting consumers with high quality restaurants who are selling their unsold food at up to 70% off, they can still have a tasty treat without breaking the bank. Not only does this save them money, but it's also good for the environment, as it reduces food waste and the associated carbon emissions. And because the app lets consumers discover new businesses in their area, they're likely to find some hidden gems that they never would have found otherwise.


The suppliers' value proposition is that by selling food at reduced prices, they can generate revenue from otherwise wasted stock, as well as reducing business waste fees. They also attract new customers and boost their corporate social responsibility image - all while doing their bit for the planet, too.

It’s a win/win situation, as you can save surplus portions or ingredients from going to waste, win back sunken costs and introduce yourself to locals who are yet to discover you. So, what are you waiting for? It’s a quick and easy set up process with no extra equipment required, and no impact to your day-to-day operations. In fact, they can put you online in five minutes, so you can start saving food straight away. Get in touch with Beacon to find out more today – and become part of their growing food waste movement.

 

For more information about any of the suppliers featured above, get in touch with Beacon to see what additional benefits you can gain by opening an account through us. And don't forget we're always keen to hear about any suppliers that you currently work with that you think would be a great addition to our directory - so just reach out with your recommendations.
