Guest services with a smile

Every guest or group which visits your hotel is different and so are the needs or the preference they may have. You can allocate the room to the guests according to their standard preferences such as room type, view type, suite name or you can even add a custom preference beforehand which is unique to your hotel making it easy for you to identify and allocate.

Between walk-ins, bookings from website and channel bookings, it can get overwhelming at times or in some cases lead to errors in room allocation. But that is not a problem here, when you are allocating a room to a guest, the system will automatically compare the occupancy levels and dates and suggest you the best available option.

Creation of extra charges or any other miscellaneous charges is very straightforward. You can configure any kind of charges beforehand and those charges can be grouped for easy identification. In addition, if a guest is requesting for a service whose charges are not present in the system, you can manually add any custom charge to the bill as per the convenience. All of the charges in the system are accurately reflected in various reports, making it easier to track different charges and leaving no room for error.

Nothing impresses guests more than prompt confirmation of their requests, whether it is receiving email/SMS confirmation for their booking or receipts in their email after payment. You can pre-configure email and phone number in guest profile, once configured, the system will automatically set out the notification as per the process.

Hotels in many regions are required to share the guest information with Government Agencies as per local law or Third Party Guest Service Systems. To make things much easier, Offline PMS can be integrated with any system and you can pre-set the setting in the system. Depending on the configuration the guest information is automatically shared with the local system when guest checks-in or you can share the information manually as per the requirement.

More often than you think, guests do arrive at the hotel before the hotel’s check-in time. Guests can request to check-in early instead of waiting in the hotel’s lobby. To simplify the early check-in process and charges related to it, we have a pre-configured early check-in charge. In addition, you can always modify the charge as per your hotel’s policy or even add the charge manually during check-in process.

Bookings for hotels come from variety of sources, from channels (OTAs), agents, hotel website, emails and walk-ins. The live inventory update will sync inventory across the board reducing instances of overbooking and unwarranted communication with guests saving you revenue and time.

Furthermore, the system will automatically send it to the guest’s email and you can even print a hard copy on the spot if guest requests.

During the duration of the stay, guest can use many of the extra services like laundry, room service, minibar, housekeeping service, restaurant and more.

Between welcoming the incoming guests and completing check-out for the leaving guests, check-out period can be very chaotic. Before the guest can check-in, the room has to be serviced and made ready for the arriving guest. Communication with the housekeeping staff is the key here, as you are checking the guest out, the system will automatically mark the room as “dirty” notifying the housekeeping team. Once the room has been cleaned and updated in the system, the front desk will be able to see the status of the room changing from “dirty” to “clean”, meaning the room is ready to be occupied again.
