HOSPITALITY MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE The new ATRIO hospitality management software from PAR Springer Miller gives hoteliers the choice to deploy the system on the cloud, on-premise or a combination of the two. The company says the modular suite simplifies guest-centric technology systems, resulting in streamlined operations, seamless integration, scalability, lower cost and more.
CANISTER VACUUM Sanitaire’s new SC3700 Quiet Clean canister vacuum has an assortment of accessories for bare floor, carpet and detail cleaning.

The machine quickly converts from carpet to hard surface cleaning with the flip of a button.

MOBILE SURVEY TAKING UniFocus introduced a mobile device functionality that it says should increase response rates for its guest, meeting planner and employee engagement feedback surveys. A dynamic link automatically displays either a mobile or standard version of the questions, based on the device the user is viewing when taking a survey: a standard version for users of desktop and laptop computers and iPads and other tablets; a shorter mobile version for users linking through a smartphone.
OVEN-TO-TABLE WARE Hall China Co. offers a line of ceramic baking and serving pans it says are durable, easy to clean and allow food on buffets and serving lines to keep its quality longer compared to pans made of plastic or stainless steel. Plastic pans, Hall says, fail to retain heat or cold, while stainless steel units continue to cook the food. The company says ceramic cookware is more scratch-resistant, which makes it easier to clean and sanitize. Hall’s line of ceramic food pans comes in eight sizes, including two deep sizes.
HAND DRYER TRI-Umph is a new addition to American Specialties’ Roval Collection of hand dryers. The company says the automatic high-speed dryer is a super-hygienic, fast-drying and competitively priced option for commercial washrooms. The unit’s ergonomic design allows users to dry their hands in a natural position without water splash-back or water falling to the floor and creating a hazard. Its filter system is comprised of three layers of filter: HEPA, carbon and anti-microbial.
TOOTHBRUSH HOLDER The Stand and Stow toothbrush holder from Lightbulb LLC is a hotel amenity that provides guests with a clean place to stand their toothbrushes in the bathroom and a convenient place to store the brushes when they leave. A customization program from the company allows hotels to place their logos on the item.

New to this edition are discussions of payment card industry compliance, revised ADA regulations, information on social media and more.
WIRELESS PA SYSTEM The Loudmouth Wireless PA System from Ritron, Inc. allows hotels to use existing portable two-way radios, base stations or mobile radios to deliver live voice messages at a distance of up to two miles away, making the system suitable for general paging or announcements, weather emergencies, security announcements and more. The company says the system installs easily and virtually anywhere with no trenching or extensive wiring required.
STACKABLE SEATING The Piper Chair from MTS Seating is contemporary and comfortable and takes stackable banquet seatings to “an elegant new level,” says the company. The multi-contoured seat shell provides the comfort. The chair is stackable up to 10 high and comes with a 12-year structural frame warranty.
IPAD CHECK-IN The xPress Check-In app from Northwind allows hotels to use iPads and other tablets for personalized mobile check-in and check-out services with seamless remote access to Northwind’s Maestro Property Management Suite.

SUSTAINABLE FURNITURE The Plank Collection of furniture, developed by Pfeiffer Lab for furniture manufacturer Council, is made of Perennial Wood, a product made in the U.S. from domestically harvested Southern pine.
The manufacturer says the wood undergoes a proprietary process that transforms its cell structure, leaving no toxic substances and providing a physical barrier that resists damage from outdoor elements for decades.
UPRIGHT VACUUM The SC9050B lightweight commercial upright vacuum from Sanitaire features a more durable design in a lightweight, easy-to-maneuver frame, says the company. The frame is made of magnesium, which is 75% lighter than steel and 33% lighter than aluminum. A new design allows users to place their foot on the vacuum hood and release the vacuum from the upright position without the use of the foot pedal.
FLATWORK IRONER CLEANER Tingue, Brown & Co. introduced a heavy-duty Continuous Belt Cleaner for flatwork ironers. Using an abrasive mesh strip design, the cleaner accesses difficult-to-reach areas directly under the ironer to remove large amounts of dirt, lint, grime, wax and other contaminants that accumulate over time.
AMENITY COLLECTION Lather Hotel partnered with luxury bath and body brand Mistral to introduce the Mistral Verveine hotel amenity collection. The products draw on organic shea butter to soften, natural olive oil to hydrate and condition and the scent of verbena to energize and soothe, says the company. The collection includes shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, body lotion, body soap, face soap, bath salts, shea butter and hand cream.
LOCKING TECHNOLOGY Enhancements to VingCard’s RFID locking technology promise to nearly double the reading speed for its Classic RFID, Signature RFID and Signature RFID Remotus designs. In addition, the company says the new platform enables the RFID locks to read keycards from more than twice as far.
MATTRESSES Jamison Bedding’s new Town & Country mattress line comes in four models including one- and two-sided designs. ArmorPur technology repels water- and oil-based liquids and stains. It safeguards the bed from mold, mildew, algae, bacteria, odor-causing microbes and microbial deterioration.
