Emerson Climate Technologies teams up with DCM to complete record-breaking project

E

merson Climate Technologies, Inc., a business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR), has collaborated with Egyptian firm Delta Construction and Manufacturing (DCM) to produce the highest capacity commercial chillers to be manufactured in Egypt. Three 170-ton chillers were commissioned with enhanced capabilities to cater for the strict requirements of the client – local pharmaceutical manufacturer United Pharmaceuticals. Producing a commercial chiller with the required capacity and large commercial scroll (LCS) tandem systems is a huge challenge, particularly with no local OEM having the necessary facilities or resources to manufacture a system with required capacity range. An Egyptian pharmaceutical firm required an air conditioning solution for a 10,000 square meter space. There were some constraints and special cooling requirements which called for a unique solution. Therefore for this particular installation, DCM engineers designed and manufactured a large-scale chiller according to the client’s strict specifications. The new solutions benefit the client on three fronts: taking up less space, costing less to install and generating lower running costs. They also come with full technical support from Emerson. Each chiller has an inlet water temperature of 52 °F, outlet water temperature of 42 °F and inlet air temperature of 105 °F. Serviced by DCM’s fan coils and air handling units, collectively they can produce a total of 530 tons of refrigeration and 160,000 CFM.

The new solutions benefit the client on three fronts: taking up less space, costing less to install and generating lower running costs. 10th of Ramadan Industrial City. They have been involved in a number of large-scale projects during the past 24 months, and their business with Emerson doubled in 2015, compared to 2014.

Javed Rasheed, regional sales managerEmerson Climate Technologies MEA, explained: “DCM is a partner with whom we’ve had a successful relationship with since 2008, and is the largest commercial air conditioning OEM in the country. It was a challenge to produce a local commercial chiller with this capacity range with large commercial scroll tandem systems, but a project like this demonstrates the value of collaboration.”

“Previously, companies needing a chiller of this capacity would have to import it. No local OEM can produce this capacity range, as it requires advanced manufacturing capability. However, DCM now has the ability to manufacturer units from as little as 20 tons, right through to 175 tons – the only organization in Egypt able to produce chillers of this size,” said Mohamed ElBorollosy, marketing director - DCM.

Established in 1995, DCM employs more than 135 staff at its production plant in the

HOSPITALITY CUSTOMER SERVICE

Benefits to expect from Customer Service Training Programs customer service training will not only add value for customers visiting and staying at your hotel but also drive your sales. This is because the same satisfied customers will likely make repeat visits or even recommend your hotel to friends and families, hence giving you a competitive advantage. In addition to this, the training will ensure that your staff has an enhanced ability to solve concerns and issues at first contact. This improved approach to visitors’ worries leads to the feeling of respect and appreciation which is critical for the hotel’s success. Customer retention and acquisition of new customers ultimately leads to satisfaction of shareholders in the hotel, who usually tend to invest more on the business and eventually boost its growth rate.

T

he need and importance of outstanding customer care service for your hotel business cannot be overemphasized simply because it is one of the elements required for success of the business. While there may be a variety of elements needed for the growth and success of a business, customer service still takes centerstage especially in hospitality industry. However, some hoteliers still underestimate the importance of customer satisfaction and focus solely on laying foundations for their ventures. This is why it is not a surprising thing to see dissatisfied customers posting negative reviews about hotels they spent their holidays or vacations in once they log onto travel and booking websites. A customer may have been received well at the entrance but ran into staff that don’t respond well to questions asked or have their concentration somewhere else. A client may also have a hard time communicating with a very rude bartender and will immediately dislike your hotel. Since you will have only one chance to make the first impression, it is important that your hotel staff make the best of their first and subsequent meetings with clients during

To counter such issues, one needs to consider regularly signing up their staff for customer service training programs. One of the aspects of such a training program that an hotelier can expect is improved customer service skills throughout the labor force because the employees will either acquire new skills or improve their existing ones. There may be specific areas of focus for employee training such as communication, problem-solving, listening and organizational skills. However, training your staff on the same set of skills will create a sense of team work and eventually give the team a better standard process to deal with visitors and clients. Taking your entire team of employees to

Apart from regular customers, visitors and employees, a hotel’s management can also benefit through training their staff in competent customer service and hence smoothening operations throughout the hotel. This is because the training will ensure that employees have a greater understanding of their role and the impact it has on the organization. Such employees are more efficient and best equipped to effectively deal with customers because they also understand their expectations and mindsets, a fact that reduces the risk of losses and business failure. In addition, the management of hotels should expect success in the strategies that they implement in the business environment. Quality customer service involves encouraging feedback from customers which the management can use in analyzing the strengths and drawbacks present in their work force. Such analysis may be used later for designing and adopting successful business strategies. With globalization of the hospitality industry as well as digital transformation, customers are likely to have expectations of personalized experiences in different hotels that they visit. Therefore it is prudent that hoteliers strive to train their staff in such fields in order to ensure their dominance in the hospitality industry.


KITCHEN TRENDS

Top tips for selecting the right kitchen equipment

T

he kitchen is an essential part of any hotel business and choosing the best equipment for this department usually involves striking a balance between practicalities and maintaining modern equipment.

Versatility and shared tasks: For commercial kitchens, it would be wise to get equipment with multiple functionalities through which the chef and the whole of kitchen staff can use to accomplish various tasks.

For many hoteliers, pricing of kitchen equipment is usually the biggest factor. However, there are various aspects that someone needs to keep in mind before purchasing or leasing any kitchen equipment. Here are some tips to consider:

Versatile equipment will make life in your kitchen easier and safer, for instance the combi-oven. With this, one can cook, slowcook, steam or roast food stuffs intended for your recipes. This one machine can replace most appliances in your kitchen and save you space in the process.

Dedicated hotels such as those serving sea food, Chinese food and African traditional food and so on will require very specific equipment to effectively prepare food for their guests. This will need the expertise of the chef or hotel owner to avoid purchasing irrelevant kitchen tools. After sales support: Just like most technologies, kitchen equipment will need maintenance and perhaps repairs after several runs of lunch, dinners and breakfasts. To take care of these, it is important that one chooses equipment from a company that offers extensive after sales support. Apart from setting up the equipment in your kitchen, they should pass by once in a while to ensure that everything is running smoothly and that the quality of food offered is not compromised.

Such dealers may also have insufficient access to spare parts for the imported equipment which can be dangerous when the machines start to fail. Unanticipated breakdowns of these equipments can cause a lot of losses to your business.

It is also important to take note of imported equipment as they may only be supplied by a ‘small’ dealer within the country with no provision of trained service agents.

Nevertheless, hoteliers need to note that there are certain old (traditional) pieces of equipment that will still be important in your kitchen no matter the decade, for instance hand-blenders. On the other hand, electric can openers and spice grinders can make life easier for your kitchen staff.

RI

This will also maintain the standard of menus you offer your customers as well as reduce your operation costs in the long run because you will have prevented breakdowns before they happen.

Modern equipment: with advancements in technology and policies for hoteliers, it is advisable that you do thorough research

There are trusted brands that may have brought you success with their old models of equipment. This is usually the starting point towards upgrading or purchasing new equipment for your kitchen.

SH EF

Menu and dedicated recipes: when looking to buy kitchen equipment, the menu or recipes that chefs serve at your hotel and eventually the specific equipment for these menus will be the first thing to consider. Luckily enough, chefs have all this figured out and will make your work easier by specifying the models that you should consider purchasing.

HOUSEKEEPERS ASSOCIATION

Trends and best practices for the modern housekeeper T

he hospitality industry is currently experiencing tremendous changes that include adoption of technology in operations, expansion and opening of new properties as well as outsourcing of relevant services by hoteliers. For hoteliers, the undervalued and underrated department of housekeeping is one of the industry’s sectors that are currently experiencing advancements. In any hotel or institution, housekeepers have a vital role to play if hotels are to address key operational inefficiencies and streamline their operations.

The department that was once thought of as a ‘thankless’ division of a property is no longer just about cleaning, maintaining and aesthetic up-keeping of spaces but much more. There is a need for housekeeping to meet leading trends, challenges as well as best practices and stakeholders in the industry are steering towards this direction. Eco-friendly hoteliers: in the recent past, there has been an increasing awareness to use eco-friendly amenities, commodities and practices. This has extended to housekeeping where professional housekeepers develop and adopt new ways to conserve water and energy. Such practices by these environmentfriendly properties are deemed to increase their monetary health. IT savvy housekeeping: technology continues to become a fundamental part of the hospitality industry with hoteliers aiming to enhance efficiency and reduce operational costs. Various functions like room cleaning, housekeeping supplies and inventory, accessing the mini-bar using telephones as well as clearing rooms by phone have all been streamlined by modern technology. This is expected to increase room attendant productivity by 20%, save up to 40% time of floor supervisor and eliminate 80% of calls to front office. Housekeeping training: there has been the need for improved productivity within the hospitality industry which is now globally accepted. In addition to this, emphasis on maintenance of hygiene as well as issues raised around quality checks to track down adherence to laid-down standards has also become a norm. To maintain productivity

standards, stakeholders in the industry are now turning to efficient and effective training of their housekeeping staff as operations under this department get more mechanized. For the Kenyan hospitality industry, executive housekeepers from various hotels, hospitals and institutions were drawn from across the country for the launch of Heads of Housekeeping Professional Association in August at Intercontinental Hotel Ballroom.

Since the main product of hotel business is room sale, housekeepers are expected to keep rooms clean and comfortable while ensuring a home environment for the guests. With emphasis on maintenance of the quality of guest experience, the Heads of Housekeeping Professional Association is therefore poised to ultimately become the platform for housekeepers’ consultation.

HOUSE KEEPING INSIGHT

What guests expect from your towels and linen

T

linen providers in the hospitality industry in order to meet the high customer expectations.

he hospitality industry continues to experience newer trends with every passing decade but one that has always been there and is likely here to stay is the desire for the guest to enjoy an exceptional stay.

These providers have the capability and knowledge to ensure the maintenance of outstanding towel and linen standards in order to guarantee positive guest experience.

Your customers will achieve this in various different ways as guests have a certain preference for some items in the rooms that they’re allocated. However, as much as guests might view some items as more important than others, bed linen and towels are some of the factors that have direct impact on your guests’ experiences. Regardless of the rating of your hotel, over 90% of customers will always check on the quality and cleanliness of linen as guests expect their towels to be washed on a daily basis. To ascertain the quality of linen supplied to their rooms, guests will consider softness, freshness and fluffiness as most important pointers.

14

Equally, they reduce the stress placed on housekeeping teams as they limit the demands on labour intensive in-house laundry operations. Most guests still prefer the trend of nonbranded or plain white towels and linen. This, to many, appear strong and appealing to guests who are looking for a simple and relaxed atmosphere in their rooms.

Compromising on the standard of towels and bed linen could lead to a reduction in business performance as items that are dirty and of poor quality might drive your guests away.

However, some hoteliers consider branding their towels and linen a sign of superiority and this may be coupled with adoption of larger towels in their bathrooms.

It is therefore important that hoteliers work hard to cater for what their guests demand and provide a gold standard if they are to build a strong and favorable reputation as well as convince guests to return in the future.

Some hoteliers are now partnering with established outsourced laundry and rental

HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY INVESTMENT

Advancements in Kenya’s hospitality industry

T

he future of the Kenyan hospitality industry still looks brighter with reports indicating that the hotel pipeline is getting stronger and stronger. Despite challenges ranging from insecurity to political instability, Africa remains attractive to investors for trade, business and capital investments which in turn lead to a rise in the demand for hospitality products. According to Hotel Chain Development Pipeline in Africa 2016, a report by W Hospitality Group, the number of planned hotel rooms in Africa has risen to 64,000 in 365 hotels, up almost 30% on 2015. This undeniable increase has been attributed to properties and brands in sub-Sahara Africa, who continue to surpass their counterparts in North Africa. The hotel pipeline in North Africa has seen an increase of 7.5% from 18,500 rooms in 2015 to an approximated 20,000 rooms for the current year. On the other hand, investors are not bothered much with exploring the SubSaharan hospitality industry as the pipeline has recorded a 42.1% increase. Nigeria is still ranked first with 10,222 rooms in the pipeline followed by Angola with 7,560 rooms. In Eastern Africa, Kenya – which is ranked 7th in the entire continent - has impressive figures in comparison with other countries in the region. Ethiopia, which was the leader in 2015, has a total of 2,460 rooms in contrast with Kenya’s 2,956 rooms. It is important to note that over 90% of Kenya’s hotel pipeline is under construction while hoteliers and investors anticipate an increase in visitor numbers. This growth has been attributed to the developments driven by China, Russia, India, the Middle East as well as other neighbouring

Africa countries with most investors eyeing the capital city and coastal regions. Mitsumi Group extended their footprint in sub-Sahara Africa by opening their first hotel in Kenya, Golden Tulip. The 4-star mid-level hotel that is located in Westlands Nairobi is run by Louvre Hotels Group and has a capacity of 94 rooms with a multitude of high-end services offered. Swiss-based Movenpick Hotels & Resorts have also made their Kenyan debut by opening a 223-room property in Westlands, Nairobi. Owned by Gold Course Hotel, their Kenyan brand is called Movenpick Hotel & Residences and targets business travelers and the affluent local community. In addition to this, the facility offers 54 spacious modern one and two-bedroom apartments for longstay families and couples. South African developer and hoteliers, Mantis, seeks to gain a foothold in East Africa through a possible partnership with Kenyan-based Monarch. The partnership entails refurbishing of the 84-room Chester House Apartment Hotel to include luxury five-star suites. The property which will boast of modern conference rooms and luxury health and wellness spa will be renamed The Mantis Chester Suites.

Global hotel brand, Tune Hotels, spread their wings by setting up a 3-star hotel in Nairobi, Kenya. The Nairobi Tune Hotel is Tune Group’s first hotel in Africa with plans for additional 15 more hotels to be set up in East Africa in future. Hospitality developments in Kenya have not been characterized by the entry of new brands into the industry only. The Tourism Regulatory Authority has seen three hotels in the coast earn five star rating after a nationwide classification exercise. These hospitality establishments are North Coast’s Medina Palms Suites and South Coast’s Swahili Beach Resort and Leopard Beach Resort & Spa. Likewise, Kenya Tourism Board has put efforts towards boosting the accommodation sector through facilitating the promotion of subsidized all-inclusive packages of hospitality establishments through the media. This highlighting of accommodation providers (hotels, lodges, resorts and tented camps) is aimed at promoting the local tourism industry and ultimately boosts business for every hotelier in the country.
