Exhibitor News: Nu Menu - INNOVATIVE NEW TECHNOLOGY TO SHOWCASE AT HOTEL EXPO
Nu Menu Solutions will be one of the big tech exhibitors at The Hotel Show Africa 2017, recognised around the world as one of the largest and most influential global hospitality events. This is the premier of the event in Africa at the Gallagher Convention Centre.
It is colocated with Africa’s Big Seven, one of the largest food and beverage trade shows and SAITEX, the largest trade event for retailers and entrepreneurs.
Nu Menu Solution’s, Gary Ernstzen, says hotel guest technology is constantly changing the way hotels communicate and do business to meet the evolving expectations of patrons. “Consumers, particularly business travellers, are moving towards an anonymous service style, like we have seen from the disruptive success globally of technology services like Uber,” says Ernstzen.
Nu Menu will be showcasing its innovative self-service kiosks from global supplier Ariane and in-room technology from iRiS which will be installed in South Africa for the first time at the new Signature Luxe hotel in Sandton.
“If hoteliers wish to increase the touch points with their guests- before, during and after the guest’s stay, they need to consider implementing a digital strategy. Just like at home, guests are seeking control, speed and in many cases self-service without the barriers of language or effort to communicate,” concludes Ernstzen.
Nu Menu is the exclusive reseller in South Africa and Africa for French-based technology company Ariane, a market-leader in bespoke software and hardware for the hotel industry; iRiS, a global leader in Guest Experience Platforms and Mcoms, a global leader in televisual communications.
The hospitality industry is ever-evolving and Nu Menu is at the cutting edge. Nu Menu exhaustively selects the best hotel software and hardware from industry leaders worldwide. Our technology alleviates management headaches, improves communication and makes life easier for hotel owners and their guests.
“We are positioned to offer hoteliers the technology they need to not only stay ahead of the curve, but make their lives simpler too. Our technology is built and distributed in Europe and America and every solution we sell has been rigorously tested in these markets before being brought to African audiences.”
