Mechline offers free guides to help operators bounce back

As the hospitality industry looks ahead to the lifting of lockdown restrictions, ceda Partner Mechline Developments has released two free guides containing a wealth of practical advice to help operators bounce back and generate sales opportunities for dealers. The guides offer six steps to help increase restaurant covers and footfall, plus a comparison of air sterilisers and air purifiers so operators can choose the best solution to keep their customers and staff safe.

Commenting on the launch of the guides, Kristian Roberts, Marketing Manager at Mechline said:

“After three lockdowns hospitality operators will understandably be eager to finally welcome back diners so they can start rebuilding their businesses. However a recent study has shown that 53% of consumers are not confident or unsure about visiting restaurants, pubs and hotels when they reopen – so operators face a challenge to reassure returning diners that hygiene measures are in place to protect them.

“As a specialist manufacturer of innovative hygiene focused equipment for the foodservice and hospitality industry we are keen to support operators with the insights, advice and strategy shared in these free guides. In turn, we hope our dealer partners will benefit from sales enquiries as operators look to install advanced technologies like HyGenikx to make their premises as safe as possible ready for reopening.”

Mechline’s guide to increasing covers and footfall includes six strategic steps encompassing: Providing a customer loyalty scheme; Building customer confidence with improved service and experience; Marketing to target local customers; How to leverage the potential of social media; Reducing ‘no shows’ and how to change and adapt your offering with the seasons. Insights shared in the guide include how loyal customers tend to spend 36% more and that 67% of customers would stay longer and spend more money if they enjoy your customer service.

One of the biggest challenges operators face in the year ahead will be customer confidence. Patrons will want to relax, safe in the knowledge that the hospitality business has taken all the necessary precautions to protect them from infection. With this in mind the second Mechline guide explains the differences between air purifiers and air sanitiser/sterilisers, examining how the various technologies work and their respective benefits so operators can make informed decisions about the best solution to protect and reassure customers and staff.

Mechline extends HyGenikx range with fan assisted model for larger occupied areas

Mechline extends HyGenikx range with fan assisted model for larger occupied areas

Specialist UK manufacturer and Platinum Partner to Ceda Mechline Developments, has extended its popular HyGenikx air and surface steriliser range with the launch of a fan assisted model for larger occupied areas like offices, care homes, waiting rooms and retail and leisure facilities.

As Nick Falco, Product & Technical Director at Mechline explains:

“The HyGenikx range already includes models for a wide variety of applications including kitchens, front of house, cold stores and washrooms – and with the addition of the new fan assisted model for larger occupied areas where air movements are minimal, the protection and peace of mind HyGenikx provides is now available for all areas.

“The fan assisted HyGenikx model utilises a combination of the most effective air and surface sterilisation technologies available, which are proven to target and kill viruses and bacteria and could help reduce the risk of Covid-19 transmission.

Using HyGenikx will significantly improve hygiene to levels impossible to achieve with traditional cleaning methods alone, which helps to reduce both the transmission of infectious diseases and staff absenteeism. In addition, HyGenikx technology also eradicates unpleasant odours by tackling them at source.

 The fan assisted HyGenikx model is a plug and play option that is easy to connect to existing sockets and will quietly and safely go about its business – keeping staff and visitors protected from viruses and bacteria all day, every day, even in the hardest to reach areas.

The unit incorporates a robust vandal resistant aluminium outer casing and can be mounted to a wall or a ceiling with four screws or alternatively placed flat on supplied rubber feet. Models are available to suit areas from 25m² to 100 m².
