Simplifying Hotel Pantry and Gift Shop Supply for 1,200 Hotels

LAKEWOOD, CO--(Marketwire - Nov 29, 2012) - The recent partnership of Tradavo and BuyEfficient ("B.E.") has been made official -- creating a more streamlined and consolidated ordering process for supplying the hotel pantry. For Tradavo, the partnership gains them access to more than 1,200 B.E. Member hotels. On the hotel side, supplying the hotel pantry with snacks, beverages, sundries, and frozen foods has been greatly simplified. B.E. Members now have the convenience of Tradavo's online ordering platform combined with all the preferred pricing, rebates and purchasing efficiencies realized through BuyEfficient's Complete Online Purchasing System.

To date over 1,000 select service, extended stay, and full service hotel pantries have undergone the Market Makeover retail optimization offered by Tradavo, experiencing average revenue and profitability increases of 25%.

"For B.E., this partnership goes beyond providing our Members with the opportunity to source the right products for their retail outlets at a competitive price point. Just as importantly, Tradavo is providing them a comprehensive plan for creatively marketing these retail products to their customers," states Lisanne Bogle, B.E.'s VP of Strategic Contracting.

Tradavo's VP Sales and Marketing Janine Roberts touches on the benefits to both parties -- "This integration is an absolute win-win for both Tradavo and BuyEfficient customers.
