Miami’s original Art Hotel delights guests while reducing costs and increasing revenues during the city’s premiere global art fair.
Miramar Beach, Fla. (January 11, 2023) – Beachy, a leading provider of next-generation solutions and services for the country’s leading resorts, today announced that The Sagamore Hotel, South Beach successfully deployed its innovative mobile point-of-sale (POS) solution in time to welcome guests to the 20th anniversary of Art Basel – Miami. Beachy’s 5G cellular-enabled tablets gave the Sagamore operations team a fast and simple deployment strategy for mobile service on the pool deck and beach. Preparing the technology for record Art Basel crowds took less than a day. It seamlessly integrated with the property’s fixed POS and PMS solutions and eliminated the challenges associated with cables and power cords around the pool and long walks from the beach to a fixed POS terminal to place orders and tender payments.
Shai Gutterman, operations manager at The Sagamore Hotel, South Beach commented: “With the Beachy solution rapidly deployed, we were able to eliminate more than $25k in IT spend on additional fixed terminals, deliver on our promise of exceptional guest service, and experience record breaking sales.”
Known as Miami’s original “Art Hotel”, The Sagamore Hotel South Beach has been a lavish oceanfront destination since the days of Art Deco. At the crossroads of Lincoln Road and Collins Avenue, this family-owned boutique hotel offers 101 rooms, two-story bungalows, and a spacious oceanfront penthouse. Garnering international attention and acclaim, The Sagamore presents year-round rotating exhibits and exclusive partnerships with leading artists and museums.
“The Beachy team made us feel like their number one priority during an Art Basel week that drew record attendance,” Gutterman added. “They were incredibly attentive to our needs and their customer service was truly top notch. They made delivering exceptional outdoor service at the Sagamore faster and easier than ever before.”
Properties like The Sagamore Hotel, South Beach are expanding their food & beverage service beyond purchases from stationary terminals, and without the risk of encountering slow or dropped Wi-Fi connections. Beachy’s advanced 5G communication protocol, sunlight-friendly interface and UX designed for conversational ordering, make it ideal for day-to-day operations and the most prestigious special events located everywhere resort guests want to be – at the pool, on the beach, in sprawling gardens, and on the nation’s top golf courses,
“The Sagamore Hotel’s experience demonstrates that by deploying Beachy, resorts no longer have to try to manage their daily outdoor operations or their largest outdoor functions with solutions made for close-proximity indoor service,” said Tim Hansen, senior vice president of business development at Beachy. “We are honored to be trusted by such an iconic property during their most important event of the year and look forward to a long and fruitful partnership.”
