Extended Stay hotels place in the hospitality industry.

by Administrator 21. July 2016 10:18

Extended Stay are hotels designed especially for longer stays with studios and rooms that feature fully-equipped kitchens and plenty of work space and other amenities that you wouldn’t find in your typical hotel room. From on the premise coin-operated laundry facilities open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to rooms with refrigerator, stovetop, microwave, coffee maker, cooking utensils, dishes, and cutlery. The Extended Stay hotels are ready to cater to your needs for a longer period of time than a standard hotel.

Most people choose to stay in an Extended Stay hotel when they are traveling for work, for school, or need a temporary place to live while they are in between homes or apartments. There’s an 8+2+1 lodging rule that says 8 months or greater: apartment. 2 weeks to 8 months: Extended Stay hotel. Less than 1 week: full-service hotel.

Along with all of the amenities that hotels provide, here at AVM we carry the amenities that Extended Stay properties need to operate efficiently for the demand of their guests. For the kitchens, we carry both single pack dish detergents as well as multiuse detergents http://www.goavm.com/dishsoap-dishwasher-detergent-c-382.aspx. We have paper towels used to wipe down surfaces used by the guest. http://www.goavm.com/vista-household-kitchen-roll-towels-p-7531.aspx. For deeper cleaning we carry Bar Mop Towels http://www.goavm.com/16x19-ribbed-32-oz-gold-strip-bar-mop-towels-p-2589.aspx  to dry up spills. Small appliances, such as toasters http://www.goavm.com/toasters-c-404.aspx or can openers and blenders http://www.goavm.com/kitchen-items-c-497.aspx are also features of extended stays that we offer.

For coin-operated laundry rooms with vending machines we offer detergent pouches such as http://www.goavm.com/2-oz-gentle-clean-laundry-detergent-pouches-for-vending-machines-p-6864.aspx or http://www.goavm.com/ultra-surf-laundry-detergent-p-250.aspx. To keep clothes fresh and soft we’ve got Snuggle Fabric Sheets http://www.goavm.com/snuggle-fabric-dryer-sheets-p-234.aspx.

The LED Revolution: Welcome to the Future of Lighting.

by Administrator 13. July 2016 02:43

In an eco-minded world there are a few things that you need to consider when updating your hotels and properties. LED lights not only allow you to save up to 75% on your electric bills, some states will actually send you a rebate for switching to LED lighting on your properties. Saving you money is what AVM wants to do, so let’s talk about how we can do that for YOU!

So what is LED, and what makes it better than traditional bulbs?

Our LED lighting is extremely efficient, using between 40% and 70% less electricity compared to traditional lighting sources. This translates into a significant reduction in your yearly lighting bills. Our LEDs last multiple times longer than incandescent light sources. LEDs emit a steady stream of light without generating excess heat present in incandescent bulbs, resulting in a long and steady operational life. We also offer warranties on our LED lighting.

Let’s take a look at some of the different types of LED lights that we can offer you.

Let’s start with your parking lot; after all it’s usually the first area that your guests will see. From Canopy Lights for under awnings, Flood Lights to make your hotel or property glow, or Parking and Street Lights to guide your guests into your lobby; we carry all of the lighting you’ll ever need for your property to really shine. Check out our outdoor lighting http://www.goavm.com/outdoor-lighting-c-1746.aspx.

For your indoor lobby and hallway treatments, check out http://www.goavm.com/indoor-lighting-c-1744.aspx. We’ve got all kinds of tube lighting and panels that will fit into your current system. From T8 Tubes to replace your fluorescent lights, to Bay Lights for high ceilings, right into LED Panels to replace your tubes altogether, we’ve got the lighting you need to brighten up your place. We also offer retrofitted Downlights that easily install into can light space http://www.goavm.com/wall-and-vanity-lighting-c-631.aspx?pagenum=2. All of your indoor lighting needs can be replaced with LED, putting your hard earned money back into your pocket.

Do you have special areas that you’d like to chain light? From illuminating signs or letters to back lighting artwork check out these RGB controlled Module Lights http://www.goavm.com/led-modules-c-1747.aspx. For module drivers and color controllers you can check out the accessory page http://www.goavm.com/lighting-accessories-c-1758.aspx. Atmosphere goes far with the guest’s perspective. With simple accents you can really Wow your guests and provide them with a lasting experience they won’t soon forget.

For those of you with breakfast areas and restaurants we also carry Cooler Lights that will put off less energy and no heat. These Cooler Lights are food safe and also improve the visual appearance of your cases http://www.goavm.com/led-refrigerated-display-lighting-c-1750.aspx.

Finally for your rooms we can replace your bulbs with our efficient LED bulbs.  http://www.goavm.com/light-bulbs-c-419.aspx.

Use the above links to our website to update your lighting or give us a call and allow our knowledgeable customer service representatives to illuminate you with all of our options. The radiant revolution will be lighted by LED.

How to go green in the hospitality industry and save green from AVM!

by Administrator 6. July 2016 01:07


You hear it everywhere “Go green” for the sake of our environment. The resources of our world are limited and we need to be thinking about the long term effects that the choices we make today will have on our planet. Did you know that by going green in the hospitality industry you can also save yourself some green money as well? Here are a few ways to keep your money in your pocket long term while also helping to save the limited resources we use on a day to day basis.

First thing’s first. What does it mean to go green? You can start by offering recycling stations and bins in and around your rooms, lobby, and high-traffic areas. This cuts back on waste and by recycling products we keep unnecessary items out of landfills. We have several options for these bins that can be viewed here http://www.goavm.com/recycle-containers-c-582.aspx

Another way to go green is to purchase products that are made from recycled materials. Plastics that can be recycled are first sorted, shredded and rid of impurities like paper. The shreds are then melted and formed into pellets, which can be made into other products. Our strong, made in the USA Can Liners are created through this process. http://www.goavm.com/can-liners-c-81.aspx

We also sell lines of products that are designed to be eco-friendly by saving water and energy usage. Sunbeam has a product line called GreenSenseTM which is a line of eco-conscious amenities for the socially responsible, sot-conservative hotelier. Every GreenSenseTM product has been designed to save energy or water or both. With these products you save money while saving the planet. http://www.goavm.com/green-sense-shower-head-white-p-1047.aspx

Our bio plates and bowls are made from Sugar Cane which is biodegradable and eco-friendly. When looking into breakfast area options, it is important to look into reducing the amount of Styrofoam that goes into our landfills and although most CFC’s have been reduced from those products, they still contain bi-products that though less destructive to our ozone still have some harmful effects on it.http://www.goavm.com/9quot-biodegradable-plates-p-7838.aspx

Niagara offers Stealth Toilet systems that will dramatically cut your water usage and lower your bills. Stealth System combines five high-efficiency products for a powerful water and energy saving solution. The Stealth System includes the EPA WaterSense certified ultra-high-efficiency (UHET) Stealth 0.8 GPF toilet. The system is supplemented by a high-efficiency showerhead and aerator that utilize three unique flow options, a contemporary dual-spray kitchen aerator, and an innovative lead-free aerator that collectively deliver unrivaled savings. These toilets are of high-efficiency so they use less water than the common toilet. In the long run installing these units will save you thousands of dollars over time. http://www.goavm.com/toilet-accessories-c-457.aspx

We should be conscious of the world that we leave behind to future generations. By taking some small steps we can have a huge impact on the future of our planet. The carbon footprint that we leave behind today should be a step in the right direction.

Go Green AVM

GoAVM.com goes mobile.

by Administrator 13. April 2016 11:15

We live in a mobile world. Nearly everything these days can be accessed directly from your mobile device. Everything from Bank Accounts to Parking Apps can be downloaded directly to your phone. Here at AVM we’ve been hard at work on our website developing a mobile friendly design so that you can order at any time from wherever you are. Whether you’re working from a tablet or mobile device our responsive site is easy to use. Like Bob Dylan said, “The times they are a-changin”, and it’s up to us to change with them.

At www.goavm.com you’ll first notice the new clean design. All of your favorite features are still right at your fingertips making it easy for you to place your order online. Begin by logging in or if you happen to be a new customer, registering with our website. You’ll see the “Favorite list” tab that you can enter commonly ordered items into to save for making your future orders easier and efficient. You can still use the “wishlist” for items that you normally don’t have to order but know that you’ll need to soon while browsing our site. Let’s refresh how to optimally use these features.

The first of these options that we’d like to highlight is the “Add to Favorites” list. Any products that you frequently order should be added to this list so that the next time you need to order these products all you’ll have to do is select it from your favorites list in order to “Add to Cart”. These Items will remain in your “My Favorites List” until you remove them from the list and can be accessed anytime via the “My Favorite List” tab at the top the webpage.

There may be some products that you see as you are browsing that you might not need at the moment, but will soon. For these items, you should click “Add to Wish List.” When you are ready to purchase these products, they will be easy to find, and you can simply click “Add to Cart.” These items will then disappear from the “My Wish List”. Utilizing these two lists will save you your valuable time by speeding up your purchasing process.

You’ll also notice that the drop down menus open up into categories with images as well as dropdown lists. You can navigate through our website using either the image links or dropdown menu. If you’re working on mobile or tablet the dropdown menu will be the way to go. On mobile or tablet you’ll notice two drop down menus. One that lists our product categories and one that navigates to different functions of our site. The third item you’ll notice is your shopping cart. The search function is also available on mobile, tablet, & desktop versions. This is the place to insert any keyword searches or items. You’ll notice that when scrolling through items the images appear large on your screen and have three icons beneath each image. The first image is of a shopping cart, if you click on this image it will add this item into your shopping cart. The second image is of a gift or present, if you click on this image the item will be added to your wish list. The third image is of a heart and this will add the item into your favorites list.

We’re happy to have unveiled the mobile friendly version of our website, and as always our knowledgeable CSR’s are ready to help you with your ordering as well.
