Best PMS(Property Management System) Hotel Software: Top 15 list of 2021
2021 is here. Are you all set for the year? Does your business already boast of a nicely designed webpage that is both responsive and modern?
Or is it your ‘new years’ resolution to get one? Have you checked out where to start? Wix or WordPress? If you are wondering how to improve the first impression a potential guest, these are some of the first steps you should be taking.
Next, you have to think about what else your on-line presence requires. No matter how nice your webpage looks you have to make sure it’s not an empty facade of some kind of ‘internet cardboard’. No, it needs to be built on a solid foundation that offers your guests to quickly and reliably book on your webpage. That concrete foundation you need is a professional booking engine, which is just as crucial as the design of your webpage.
A booking engine is not a stand-alone application. It is a hub that speaks with other crucial systems, for instance like the Property management system(PMS) For veterans of the hotel industry, a PMS is the system version of your front desk. A virtual employee that works 24/7 making sure that every bit of data is in sync and that systems are speaking together.
The reason why a potential guest leaves your website is not that he has decided to visit his aunt in the suburbs and given up on travelling. No, he has left because your webpage did not fulfil the expectations a modern user expects. Now, he is on another platform booking his reservation, same dates and unintentionally books your hotel, but now you have to pay an OTA a commission, something you could have avoided.
What went wrong? With a PMS system, your virtual front desk would have avoided losing that booking. How you might ask?
The PMS software makes sure that if room 101 is available tonight, it is also available on your webpage and every OTA channel your rooms are connected with. The PMS facilitates your hotel reservation management by helping you out with administrative tasks, like the aforementioned virtual front desk employee. PMS makes certain that your channel management is in sync, you can even let it help you with housekeeping and of course occupancy management and pricing so the rooms display the correct rates online as it processes your guest’s payment.
The above points are just a few many reasons why a versatile Booking Engine like CultBooking is essential for any serious property hotel.
