Hotel Room Booking Software

Hotel room booking software works by processing secure online reservations made through a hotel’s website.
The information is then passed onto the hotel’s room booking software such as a channel manager, hotel PMS system, which can then be accessed by hotels to manage their direct room bookings. Other features may come with it – for example, the automation of reservation confirmation emails, hotel diary, hotel’s payment manager, etc.
Small hotel managers and owners recognise that technology is key to growing their business and increasing their direct room bookings through time.
To sell and manage rooms consistently, hotels require management software to help them to keep in control of their room availability and to maximise room sales on OTA channels, social media, metasearch engines, etc.

What is a hotel reservation system?

Room booking software is required by hotels to allow guests to create secure online reservations. The hotel booking system can be synced, not only with your current website but also with Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. This allows guests to reserve rooms in a way that is convenient for them via social media.

In addition to allowing guests to book online directly, these reservation systems provide hotel operators with additional resources that will increase their turnover and their profit margins.

For example, a channel manager may be a part of the reservation system, giving hotel operators the chance to distribute their products and live availability simultaneously to their entire network of online agents.

Why do you need it?

A hotel room booking software system is a necessity for today’s accommodation providers, no matter size or location.

An increasing number of travelers are relying solely on online reservations to book their accommodations, and without this capability, you would lose a significant amount of business.

Other reasons to consider investing in hotel reservation systems include:

  • It gives you an advantage over your competitors. Many small hotels and accommodation providers look at these products as a cost, they are so wrong in their thinking. It’s vital to know exactly where you are within your business and it’s a vital set of tools that will grow your business at a profitable growth rate.
  • It improves your efficiency as a business. Your availability is updated immediately upon receiving a reservation, not only in your system but across all of your sales channels. You will save time on administrative tasks while also minimising the risk of overbooking the rooms at your property.

So, as you can see, hotel room booking software is vital for the stability and growth of your accommodation. At Increase The Bookings, we honestly believe that we offer the complete suite of services that will grow your accommodation business today and well into the future.
