Max-eBar®, the electronic bar system is revolutionizing hotel vending, offering considerable cost savings and other benefits over traditional in-room bars.

Powered by EPnet, Quintus Systems’ own patented software, Max-eBar® turns a straightforward vending machine into a 24/7, fully integrated, retail centre offering guests the opportunity to purchase a wide variety of products using their room keycard and charging directly to their room account. No cash or credit cards are needed. With our banking-in and vinyl wrapping service we are able to design the Max-eBar to fit into the hotel style providing an integrated, aesthetically pleasing alternative to in-room bars.

The Max-eBar® automated retail centre may be sited in the corridor near guest bedrooms, adjacent to the lifts or in a central location such as the foyer. A wide choice of products are on offer, including alcoholic and soft drinks, snacks, toiletries, gifts and “distress items”. The possibilities are endless and stock can be carefully selected to meet guest’s needs. Our extensive experience of installing Max-eBars in a variety of hotels enables us to assist you in product selection and maximising turnover and profits. In particular, Max-eBar is a cost-effective alternative to in-room bars.
