Located on the shores of the Andaman Sea on the island of Phuket, Thailand, Patong Beach B&B offers its guests 15 comfortable and stylish rooms with sea views. The property is situated near a variety of restaurants, shops, and nightlife entertainment options.
The Patong Beach B&B management team was in search of a well-connected Front Desk platform to manage all operations and to access real-time reports. Tourists visit Patong Beach from all over the world, so it was important for the Front Desk platform to be able to operate using a variety of foreign currencies. Patong Beach B&B owner, Daniel says, “We wanted to improve customer service by providing up-to-date room availability, instant access to data, and transparent rates at any time of day. We also wanted to provide an easy and safe payment process, as we require 100% of the reservation fee at the time of booking.”
While Daniel was in the process of evaluating other systems, he noticed that they were more complicated and would require extensive training processes. Additionally, these systems would require a much longer set up time and more financial investment. Daniel also recognized the need to have remote access to his property system, and was in the market for a cloud-based system that would provide this feature. He was evaluating three other systems simultaneously, but only Hotelogix met all of his requirements as well as provided the most effective customer support. “Hotelogix was the best solution for all of our requirements,” states Daniel.
The Patong Beach B&B front desk staff only required 2 hours of training in order to understand the Hotelogix platform. Within weeks, the entire team was able to use the system effectively, with the Hotelogix 24/7 support team able to help with any issues and questions. With Hotelogix, the staff received transparent business reports– the most important of which was the daily recap of the business in the form of a ‘Night Audit’ summary. Hotelogix also offered several other reporting capabilities to analyze each aspect of the business, which the owner could access remotely. With Hotelogix’s online booking engine integration, Patong Beach B&B offered its guests the convenience to book online in a secure way. They were also able to provide a separate login platform to VIP guests to attract repeat business.
With the Hotelogix platform, Daniel was able to increase his property’s efficiency without compromising on features or ease of use.
The Hotelogix Management System is an easy-to-adapt and simple-to-use solution that offers everything a hotel might ever need to run your hospitality business smoothly. It is a perfect software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution aimed at businesses that want to reduce overhead costs and use “anytime, anywhere” access to their advantage.
