Optimizing Your Hotel’s Back-of-House Storage
Running a hotel requires a lot of hard work—and a lot of storage space, too. Keeping up with guest demands and expectations means always having enough housekeeping supplies, hygiene products, linens, employee uniforms, banquet decor and other service items on-hand.
After all, how do you expect guests will react if you don’t have the linens and decor they need for their big event? Or if they don’t receive the prompt room-service they were promised, because employees can’t find the supplies they need? Or if their room is missing standard housekeeping or toiletry items?
More likely than not, your guest experience—and therefore your hotel’s reputation and ratings—will suffer. That said, many hotels also struggle with finding adequate space for storing all of their miscellaneous supplies.
Spacesaver ActivRAC is a high-density mobile storage solution that combines heavy-duty pallet racking or shelving with mobile carriages that move along rails on the floor.
This system allows shelves to easily slide together or apart, eliminating wasted aisle space and enabling your hotel to store up to 50% more supplies in the same amount of space.
With the push of a button or turn of a mechanical assist handle, the aisles can be easily accessed by staff members to help them quickly find what they’re looking for. This allows employees to spend less time searching for supplies and more time interacting with guests.
ActivRAC is an ideal solution for storing nearly any item your hotel needs, including:
- Laundry and Housekeeping Supplies
- Room Linens
- Banquet and Event Supplies (Tables, Chairs, Linen)
- Miscellaneous Decorations and Furniture
- Employee Uniforms
Here’s what one resort manager had to say about ActivRAC: “The ease of movement is fantastic…you don’t have to hunt for things, it’s at your fingertips when you need it—that’s the best part.”
