Bretford’s Charging Solution Puts Power in Guests’ Hands

FRANKLIN PARK, IL—As guests check in with mobile devices in tow, there’s a need for more power. Bretford, a manufacturer of technology solutions that aim to solve the growing need to physically manage, charge, power and store mobile devices, is introducing Juice Mobile Power as a solution to the problem.

“Juice Mobile Power turns a single wall outlet into a powerful, flexible mobile charging solution, providing safe DC charging for the entire room. Juice Mobile Power’s innovative, portable design provides the power and flexibility to arrange and rearrange rooms without compromising access to power,” said Chris Petrick, CEO of Bretford, based here.

Petrick outlined a few of the benefits of the solution:

Cost-effective: “Juice Mobile Power eliminates the need for costly infrastructure upgrades, with a cost-effective system that works with facilities’ existing infrastructure to deliver power to the center of any room, all from a single wall outlet,” he said. “Even in facilities that have adequate AC outlets throughout the room, they are often in the most obscure locations. Juice Mobile Power brings power to the center of the room, so people can continue to connect and interact, while actively charging their devices.”

Increased customer satisfaction and retention: “Juice Mobile Power provides hoteliers a sophisticated charging solution, designed to optimize the charging experience,” he said. “A sleek, streamlined design eliminates the need for a tangled web of unsightly extension cords and provides hotel guests with a dynamic, flexible charging solution that boosts meeting productivity by keeping participants’ devices charged all day, while they continue to participate actively in meetings.”

Safety features: “With its intuitive, built-in proprietary FLI Charge technology, the low-voltage Juice Mobile Power DC track detects foreign objects and instantly powers down to ensure safety,” he said. “And, when the object is removed, the system instantly powers up, making it safe for hotel guests’ everyday use. It’s also designed to mitigate trip hazards; every connection point features a magnetic breakaway.”

In business since 1948, Bretford has worked with major hotel companies such as Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, Hyatt Hotels Corp., and Fairmont Hotels & Resorts. The company has also been a supplier to PSAV, a provider of audiovisual and global event technology services, for more than 30 years, Petrick noted.

“Hoteliers will have the chance to provide an adaptable solution to their guests while keeping their bottom line top of mind with the launch of Juice Mobile Power in early 2018,” Petrick concluded.
