Eliminate billing errors, avoid financial loss

Manually handling billing process is bound to lead to discrepancies. At times, you may end up charging your guests for services they have not availed, which would leave them fuming. Or, you may update the guest folio with less value, which results in loss. So, how do you plug in revenue leakage and pilferage at your hotel? The answer is automation. In this case, a cloud PMS with an integrated accounting system can help you to –

  • Auto-sync the accounting system
  • Automate direct billing from the front desk

  • Run daily operations on the go while engaging with your guests
  • Ensure real-time information flow between front office and housekeeping
  • Know which rooms are occupied, which rooms are ready to occupy, and which rooms needs to be cleaned

Grow direct bookings, save on booking commission

This is another area of your operations, where you can reduce the cost of acquiring a booking to grow profit margin. Bookings coming to you directly are commission free, and you must have a proper planning to realize this. Additionally, acquiring a new guest is always costlier than retaining an existing guest. For this, you need to –

  • Serve guests better to win over their loyalty to make them keep coming to your property
  • Collect, manage and promote positive guest reviews to increase your brand’s reputation
  • Integrate a web booking engine in your website and Facebook page
