Restaurant access with the Meal Control module

If you are looking for solutions and systems for your own hotel restaurant that could help you to manage the buffet and breakfast, our exclusive Meal Control module might be the answer.

The Meal Control module was created by HRS to help the hospitality industry to manage the access process. Access control has the capability to manage a guest’s restaurant access for either their whole stay, or with limited credits.

  • It is the perfect solution for hotels with restaurants and other restricted areas.

  • Available as either a standalone management system or an add-on to existing systems.

  • Control visitors by day and hour in real-time.

  • No more disputes over breakfast packages and bookings.

  • No more chaotic and unmanageable buffet queues.

  • Improve the guest experience and receive better service ratings.

Key benefits

Easy restaurant access control

The problem of breakfast control within many existing property management systems has been solved. By room number or key card, the hostess can easily determine whether breakfast is included in the customer’s package.

Contactless restaurant access control

Restaurant access control may be performed without entering the room number and avoiding human contact. The guest attaches their key card to the reader, which will sign the access level by the color. At the same time the hostess can see on the monitor the number of meals left and how many have been used.

Not only for restaurants

The Meal Control module is not limited to restaurant access control, it can also be used for other services. You can prevent teenagers from entering a bar, or separate VIP and buffet areas from serviced dining. The system sends a request to the property management system in real-time and the access control works immediately.

Daily business analytics

At the end of the day you will receive a detailed analysis of each zone, which could be your restaurant with a separate buffet. This will give you an overall picture of the day in respect of costs and the number of people accessing each area. The system can also generate statistics for your business in the form of a schedule and display the amount of provisions left for a certain period. Meal Control will also be able to calculate such things as the average breakfast price.

Integration with existing systems

Meal Control easily connects to Oracle Hospitality OPERA, Oracle Hospitality Suite8 and TNG by HRS.  All activities and restricted areas can be managed by using just one electronic card. This makes it a very versatile system that can operate in conjunction with an existing property management system, or as a standalone solution for restaurants only.

Restricted access by area and time

Meal Control issues key cards with a setting of ‘restaurants’, or areas that can be visited by a guest. The system enables them to enter these areas at specified times, helping to avoid queues and congestion at the buffet.

Suitable for hotels with buffets

The Meal Control management module will control your guests’ access, whether they are staying at the hotel or just visiting specific areas. Designed originally to just manage breakfast access, the Meal Control module has expanded to become a complete access control system that is used by our partners worldwide.
