Smartphones and mobile devices have become a huge part of our everyday lives. Whether your guests are on business trips, personal trips, or vacations with their family, they’re going to need access to their devices and more importantly they need a place to keep them charged up.

In the hospitality industry, guests are becoming more sophisticated about their technology. They aren’t just bringing along laptops with them anymore. Now they bring along Kindles, smartphones, tablets, handheld gaming, and other devises. Here at AVM we have many solutions to giving your guests the power and recharging ability that they are looking for from your properties right in your rooms.

The CubieMini is compact by design but big on power. Its sleek styling provides a perfect power and charging solution for the hotel desk or nightstand where space is limited. The CubieMini offers 2 power outlets, 2 USB charging ports and has the added convenience of a pass-through plug so you don’t have to give up an outlet to power the unit. Two decorative faceplates are included. Additional features include complete surge protection, adhesive mounting pad and security c-clamp (included). UL Approved and passed UL Spill Test.

The Power Pad II creates easy charging and power access for guests. Comparable to the Cubiemini but at a lower price, the Power Pad II has 2 power outlets and 2 USB ports.

The Cubie is designed to easily bring additional power to the hotel desktop or nightstand. This retro-fit option offers 3 Power Outlets / 2 USB Charging Ports as well as a pass-through plug. The Cubie provides complete surge and overcurrent protection and the versatile mounting bracket can be installed to a variety of desktops. Optional graphic faceplate and 10 ft Cat5e Ethernet cable with weight feature.  These items are ordered seperately.

The Cable Holder provides a unique and effective Internet cable management solution. The circular shape and the vivid color graphic (customizable) insert provide an eye-catching focal point on any desk. This simple device requires minimal set-up and works with any Ethernet port connection. The guest will no longer be required to crawl on the floor or “checkout” a cable, to access the Internet. The Cable Holder brings the connection up to the desk for convenient use.

The CubieTime Single Day Alarm Clock rethinks the Guest Room Alarm Clock. CubieTime combines a simple alarm clock with the convenience of charging at the nightstand. CubieTime is perfect for a hotel guestroom with its minimal footprint, easy to set alarm, display dimmer, and guest facing power and USB outlets. CubieTime also features a pass-through plug, surge protection, single day alarm, auto update for daylight saving time, security c-clamp and meets strict UL standards including a UL spill test.

Whether your guests need to check email, browse the web, read that e-book they’ve wanted to catch up on, conquer that boss battle they’ve reached, or anything that their device demands. With AVM you can give them the sources to keep their devices powered up.

Here’s your Hospitality Flu Season Survival Guide by AVM.

by Administrator 7. November 2014 06:13

The fact is, not everyone that will be walking through your doors will be vaccinated for the influenza virus. About 1 in 5 people will catch the Flu this year. The flu season starts in October and can last until May. The flu is harshest on senior citizens, young children, and individuals with health conditions, but nearly everyone is susceptible to contracting the flu. Here are a few tips to keep yourself and your employees safe and healthy during the winter.

Talk to your staff about flu vaccinations and hygienic habits that will help prevent the spread of flu, and remind them to stay at home if they exhibit symptoms that are flu-like and to limit contact with others.

Providing your staff with information on where to go to get their Flu vaccination is a good start. Studies have shown that flu shots may prevent 70-90% of healthy adults from getting the flu.

Stock up on soap and sanitizers. Hand washing and sanitizing often will help to protect you and your employees from germs left behind by your guests. Don’t let yourself run out of soaps and sanitizers during these winter months and keep sanitizers in high traffic areas such as your lobby and back of the house.

Cover your nose and mouth. This doesn’t just go for people with coughs and sneezes. While cleaning your rooms your employees should be wearing sanitary face masks and gloves to avoid germs. Here at AVM we have Medical Grade, light and comfortable masks with adaptable nose bars that keep away 95-99% of germs as well as many different sizes of gloves both latex and latex-free. 

Stock up on facial tissues and toilet papers. Some of your guests will get sick this winter. It’s important to be stocked up on all of the paper products they’ll need. 

Frequently clean commonly used surfaces such as door handles, counters and tabletops in the main lobby, and recreational areas. Consider sanitizing other high traffic areas as well such as vending and ice machines, fitness equipment, elevator buttons, restroom doors, stalls and light fixtures, furniture in the lobby and other common areas. 

We’ll get you through this flu season just follow the links to find all of these products and more at AVM.

Why AVM’s refurbished microwaves are a good deal.

by Administrator 5. November 2014 04:27

When most people hear the word refurbished, it’s usually followed more with questions or concern than it is with certainty. When deciding whether or not to purchase a refurbished appliance, it’s important to weigh the pro and cons of a “new” item versus a “refurbished” item for yourself and your business.

First of all refurbished products are not “new” but might even be “as good as new.” They have been sent back to the manufacturer for any number of reasons. Perhaps a part was broken on arrival. It may have become broken after some time or usage. Maybe the exterior of the product became damaged during shipping and consequently the customer sent it back to the manufacturer. The product may have been used as a demo or display item and may have minor dents or dings. A refurbished item should not be considered a brand new item because whatever defect caused the original customer to send it back was needed to be fixed. The manufacture then fixes the problem and sells it of as a refurbished product. The first thing you should compare is what you are actually getting with a “new” item versus a “refurbished” item.

First, you will probably notice the price. Compare it with a “new” products pricing to see how much of a discount has actually been placed into the refurbished price. Typically the item’s warranty will be less if it has been in use, so this should also be reflected into the “refurbished” price. As well as any other wear that has been accumulated.

Be sure to take a look at the warranty offered with the item. If the warranty is significantly lower than the original warranty it may not be a good deal. For instance if the item originally came with a 18-month warranty and is now a 12-month warranty, then the discount price should reflect it and if so, that may still be a good deal. If the item originally came with a 3 year-warranty but is now at a 90-day warranty it may not be such a good deal after all, unless the price has been greatly discounted. Another thing to take into account is how much more likely the product is to need warranty servicing. The more service the item may require the less likely a refurbished product is a good deal.  Ironically, these are the products most often offered as refurbished because there is a large supply of them from people sending them back in to the manufacturer for service.

Be sure to take into account these factors and all of the details that go along with the product, and you will find yourself the good deal that you’re looking for.

AVM’s refurbished microwaves come with a 1-year warranty, at a price of $39.95. The features and colors vary depending on our stock and we cannot guarantee the make or model of the microwaves.

If you are looking for a good solution at a good price, look no further than AVM. Certainly this will be a great deal for your business.
