Summer travel can be stressful for hotel guests and operators. Long airport lines and crowded highways are almost unavoidable, so for most travelers, vacation doesn’t truly begin until they arrive at their hotel. And for hoteliers, meeting heightened guest expectations during the summer can make executing daily operations more challenging than usual, especially without the right tools.
One of the easiest ways to eliminate summer stress is to manage your hotel operations with a fully integrated property management system (PMS), like innRoad. Here’s how our cloud-based software makes the summer travel season easier to manage:
Easy online booking
The majority of hotel bookings are now made online, so the days of calling the front desk are quickly coming to an end. To remain competitive, independent hotels must start providing travelers with tools to easily research their property and book reservations online. Our Booking Engine allows independents to capture direct, commission-free bookings through their existing website and our Global Distribution relationships link hotels with leading OTAs, like Expedia and Hotels.com, so travelers have many ways to find your property. And because innRoad is fully integrated, inventory is updated in real time across all channels when rooms are booked, so manual updates and overbookings will also become a thing of the past.
Seamless on-property management
Once travelers finally arrive on property, innRoad provides hoteliers with all of the software needed to deliver a relaxing experience. Our Property Manager allows for easy guest check-in, streamlines group bookings, tracks their requests to ensure their comfort, enhances team member communication and productivity and simplifies billing for a fast and efficient check-out, in addition providing other essential features. And our Revenue Manager makes performance management easy by providing quick access to metrics that are important to hoteliers, such as RevPAR, ADR and Occupancy.
innRoad is designed to make independent hotel management easy year-round, but we know that during the summer travel season, less stress is appreciated even more by travelers and hoteliers.
