Can Installing A Tablet Actually Save Money For A Hotel?

Can Installing A Tablet Actually Save Money For A Hotel?

One of the first questions that pops in the mind of hoteliers, when we give demos of Blynk iHotel is, whether the cost of installing tablets has a reasonable ROI.

Besides all the advantages of enhancing guest experience and marketing opportunities, the investment in tablets can be offset by replacing the following in-room material.

Tablets Can Save Money In A Hotel

Below are the typical costs of all the in-room material a tablet can replace in a 4 or 5 star hotel. This includes the cost of designing, printing and replacing them, once a year.

  • In-room dining menu $50 – $100
  • Leather bound directory of hotel services $50 – $100
  • Printed Hotel Promotion Material $20 – $100
  • Hardcover book of the Bible, Quran or similar religious book $10 – $20
  • Newspapers and its daily distribution
  • Local Travel Magazines
  • Alarm Clocks $20 – $100

A hotel typically spends $150 – $400 which can replaced by a tablet.

A 7” premium tablet like the Google Nexus 7 costs $200 only which lasts for a minimum of 3 years. So the yearly cost is less than $100.

If you are still unconvinced, a good idea is to buy a few tablets for your premium customers only. Getting your own hotel app as an experiment is easy as you can take advantage of our special introductory pricing.
