Mount Jefferson View, Randolph, New Hampshire, USA
Dewald Steinmann, Property Manager and Partner at Mt. Jefferson View, was looking to cut operational costs for his property as well as increase his occupancy rates for his 14-room, 8-cabin property. After some research, he decided to switch to Hotelogix from his previous Cloud system to save on both PMS and Channel Management costs. Once he made the switch, the benefits made themselves clear:
  • He has been able to save up to $1,000 USD per month
  • Overall bookings have increased by 25% since 2014
  • He expects to reach 85% occupancy in 2016, up from 70% in 2015
