Your Property Management Software is much more than just a simple software

In an industry that is constantly evolving, possessing a Property Management Software that offers automation and connectivity is key for any property wishing to improve its performance and profitability. The most important thing is to choose the property management software that meets the needs of your hotel and adapts to its reality, which may not necessarily be the most powerful hotel PMS.

Although your PMS is a strategic tool at the heart of your property’s operations, did you know that it can do so much more than just managing your operations?

Your Property Management Software is much more than just a simple software

Improve your staff’s performance

The advanced features of your PMS allow you to centralize your operations and automate your repetitive tasks. For example, you will be able to automate a wide range of tasks such as booking related tasks, emails regarding guests’ stays, room allocation, guests’ arrivals and invoicing.

Thus, by automating your staff’s recurring tasks, you optimize their available work time and improve their productivity on a daily basis. Moreover, your staff will have more time to accommodate your guests’ requests and will be more attentive to their satisfaction.

Analyse your activities to make better decisions

As a manager, possessing a PMS helps you to have a global vision on the activities of each of your hotel’s departments. Numerous tools such as reports, analyses and performance indicators will allow you to regularly and accurately monitor your performance (annual, monthly and weekly), whether it is regarding your occupancy rate, your sales, your number of reservations, your turnover or other metrics you are interested in. Also, these analyses will be beneficial to design your future strategies and will facilitate your decision making. Indeed these data can be compared to those of previous years in order to see your performance’s evolution.

Strengthen your relationship with your clientele

Undoubtedly, your PMS is an powerful advantage if you want to improve your relationship with your guests. It collects all your customers’ data, including their personal information and information about their previous stays such as their consumption habits and preferences. This can help you to have a better knowledge of your clientele. As a result, you will be able to anticipate their needs and expectations and personalize their experience while they stay with you. This one-of-a-kind personalization will improve your their satisfaction as they will feel more valued and unique.

Gathering information about your guests is also beneficient for your communication strategies. Indeed, it allows you to better target and personalize all communications with your customers, whether it be before, during or after their stay. The relevance and effectiveness of these communications are paramount because they help you keep in touch with your customers, promote your offers and services regularly, and above all, build a long-term customer loyalty.

Your Property Management System is a key asset when improving the performance of your teams, analysing your activities in order to facilitate your decision making and also strengthening your relationship with your guests. Now that you know the potential of your property management software, why not take full advantage of it?
