3.3: Property Management System setup | configuration | integration

BOOK DIRECT - Best Price

Cost: $ varies with each project

PMS - Property Management Systems, or HOS - Hotel Operating Systems, are used for hospitality accommodation management. They are computerized systems that facilitate the management of properties replacing paper-based methods that did not interact with OTA's and web based reservation systems.

My services here can be a combination of teaching you the basics about your choice of PMS, or a full setup and integration.

The starting place is choosing the correct PMS. Most often a hotelier / innKeeper chooses by price and/or after receiving a solicitation. It's become a very competitive market, however, price and a friendly voice will often lead to a compromised choice.

We will assist you with any PMS you choose, however, after trying 5 different systems over 5 years in 2015 we chose and continue to use Cloudbeds established in 2012, and owner of widely popular myAllocator.

Here is a list of our recomnended considerations (in no particular order) other than price when choosing a PMS:

  • Guest experience and usabilty by hoteliers / innkeepers
  • Stability - length of time in business
    (numerous PMS have gone out of business - some mid season)
  • Financial resources of company
    (if R&D funds are limited so will usabilty, improvements and performance)
  • Tech Support - 24/7 in your time zone
  • Channel Manager integration and interfacing capabilities with OTA's including Expedia and it's many affiliate sites such as Hotels.com, Booking.com, AirBnB ... etc.
  • Accounting functionality and financial reports
  • Website and Facebook integration
  • Mobility friendly
  • Cloud based instead of PC based software
  • Custom messaging
  • User level permissions for owners and staff
