Legacy systems in a hospitality industry is now a thing of the past. Cloud based PMS is providing the opportunity for hotels to compete on the global stage, for both small and mid-size properties. The benefits of cloud based Property Management System are many! Hotels can free themselves of physical infrastructure and benefit from an easy to access platform that houses best of systems – including the hotel’s revenue management system, central reservation system, online reputation management, rate recommendation and intelligence tools, data insight platform, channel manager, online booking engine and Global Distribution System, to name but a few.
Going forward, let’s discuss the benefits of cloud based PMS and its role to grow your business:
There is no risk of losing data due to virus or malware as all applications and vital data are stored in the cloud. The hotels can receive automatic upgrades and explore new features and performance enhancements, allowing hoteliers to benefit from an increased pace of technical innovation. The PMS software is designed in such a way that it programs automatically to accommodate any latest update or feature.
Capabilities and systems previously accessible only to the largest breed of chain hotel are now accessible to all hotels, small, medium and large. An independent small hotel today can be using the same cloud technology as the large ones, in key markets of the world. Easily manage the complexities of running the hotel operations such as online distribution and direct bookings by effectively using cloud based PMS. No more investing heavily on ‘legacy technology’ or consistently struggling to keep up with the pace of cloud based hotel solutions.
Property management system is accessible from any mobile device (tablets and smartphones with working Internet connection), giving you the access to manage your property from practically anytime and from anywhere. Get rid of the hassle of making reservations, keeping track of check-ins/ check-outs and managing housekeeping reports.
No manual error
Since the PMS is completely automated, there is absolutely no chance of manual error. The software is programmed to prevent duplicate entries, over or double booking, wrong data entry and so on.
Speed up the process
PMS is designed particularly to save time and maximize your ROI. Saving time paves the way for hoteliers to serve their guests better. Property owners can now eliminate time consuming front desk job and manual tasks by switching to PMS.
Fully integrated Web Reservations
Since cloud based PMS is a fully integrated online reservation system, allocation of separate room inventory for Web bookings is not required. Whenever a booking happens from the hotel website or via the GDS, the room inventory is immediately updated in real time.
Avoid double and over booking
Double booking is common when it comes to manual operations. It can hamper your company’s image, business and operations to a great extent. PMS and hospitality software can avoid this occurrence due to system trappings and multiple checks.
