Why Hotels Should Have USB-Powered Hubs in Their Rooms

As hotels evolve to meet the new and emerging needs of their guests, the place of electronic devices like smartphones, tablets, and laptops is crystal clear: Portable electronic-powered devices are at the center of most people’s lives—and when they’re on the road, this is even more true. That’s why every leading hotel needs to have a USB powered hub in each hotel room.

Factor in the needs of your guests, as well as different conferences or events that your hotel may host. You’ll find that offering multiport charging solutions is an ideal way to generate more business.

Type of Guests Who Need Portable Chargers

Different guests have their own individual needs. The one consistent between all of them is the need for charging solutions, especially when days are consumed with business or travel.

Travelers

From the commute to catch a flight to cross-country car rides, you can expect smartphone, tablet, or laptop power to be sapped when guests check in. Travelers are even more reliant on mobile devices than most people because they need to use different map functions, e-mail to stay in touch, and other applications on a daily basis.

Family

Aside from using smartphones to navigate and locate tourist attractions, some parents use laptops and tablets for their children to watch videos while en route. Teenagers and adults alike have the habit of using their smartphones to take photos and post them to social media. This means that there could be multiple devices that need to be charged daily.

Work Travelers

It can be power-draining to have to keep constant e-mail communications going, and taking/making phone calls with business contacts. Furthermore, the stakes are much higher, as communication is the key to getting work done, meeting deadlines, and making deals.

Benefits of USB-Powered Hubs

Realistically, no matter what kind of guests your hotel has, they will always be scrambling to use up every available outlet to charge devices during the evening, night, and early morning. It isn’t a given that they will plan ahead by bringing extra batteries or even remember to bring compatible chargers. This is why a USB-powered hub is such a huge asset to travelers.

There are endless benefits to supplying USB-powered hubs for hotel guests that ameliorate stays. Overall, this means positive experiences, greater enjoyment, and more business.



Customer Convenience

Seamlessly providing your guests with a convenient way to charge their devices in their hotel rooms makes a stay at your hotel convenient and easy. The key to success in the hospitality industry is to allow guests to feel comfortable staying with you and by offering multiport charging hubs, you achieve this.

Compatibility with Various Devices

The Charge M.E., from Ohming Technology works with all kinds of devices and operating systems. It can charge Android or Apple, and work for everything from older cellphones to today’s more advanced smartphones that use USB 3.0.

Cost vs. ROI

Like any amenity that you want to offer to guests, you may have to justify the capital cost with the return on investment (ROI) you can expect over time. A high-quality, durable charging station that comes with a one-year warranty like Ohming Technology’s Charge M.E. is a tremendous investment that improves the value of your brand. By allowing guests to charge multiple devices simultaneously, you are upgrading your existing offerings. The day may arrive sooner than you think that having a USB charging hub available in your hotel room is expected—just like seeing a bed or television set is the norm.

Conferences or Events in Hotels

Most leading hotels already have business centers that allow travelers to print, fax, call, and perform other useful functions. Supplying USB-powered hubs is a further attraction for conference and event organizers who want smoothly running events.

Additional Profit

Many hotels offer common items for guest use like hair straighteners, yoga mats, toiletries, etc. More and more leading hotels are also allowing guests to buy such items. This opens up a fresh market for hotels that can either lend or retail USB-powered chargers that they know guests will need.

Branding and Marketing

The reputation of any facility that caters to tourists hinges on the kind of amenities it can provide. A hotel, motel, or rental apartment that offers USB charging hubs is going to stand out as a brand. Furthermore, charging devices can be emblazoned with the hotel’s logo, making them valuable as marketing tools.

Word-of-Mouth

Guests certainly have more options than ever to give feedback on their experiences. Above and beyond typical social chatter, they can use social media, ratings web sites, and public message boards to talk about their travel experiences. When you proactively meet their charging needs, especially by providing a high-tech solution, their gratitude will always filter through the grapevine.

Competitive Advantage

Consider whether your competitors are in the process of procuring or already offering multiport charging capabilities for their guests. Being the first to adapt comes with rewards, and will help you set the bar for industry standards. Moreover, if you offer chargers in each room, you’ll have gained the upper hand in terms of competiveness.
