Paperless pricing in the hotel industry

Digitalization plays a significant role throughout the economic sector and also affects the gastronomy. Sustainability, quality and an attractive design are therefore becoming increasingly important factors. Electronic price labeling combines these elements and provides an appropriate way to be part of the digital transformation. ESL guarantees an appealing and individual design of food signs or menu boards, including menu covers, and the highest standards of hygiene, as electronic labels will not get dirty or damaged as easily as paper labels. Furthermore, RFID- labels adapt precisely to the existing conditions of your hotel or restaurant and are a sustainable option for food, price or room labeling. Due to the digital administration, hospitality businesses can centralize their signage management and update the prices directly from their desk instead of manually writing on blackboards or print new meal planners. For example, you can re-label the signs at buffets wirelessly whenever necessary. By using electronic labels or digital menu boards, your company generates efficiency as well as sustainability, and your business benefits from an enhanced topicality and a greater uniformity.
