Hotels rely on their PMS for managing their operations, their marketing and every stage of the guest journey—from planning to check-in, during the stay, at check out, and after the visit. However, choosing a property management system goes much deeper than features and functions. There are several other considerations. Most importantly, you must keep in mind that the software the invest in will impact how efficiently your employees perform, the quality of guest service you provide, and how well you can execute on your goals. In other words, your PMS will have a significant impact on your property’s profits and performance.
If you’re in the market for a new property management system and have done any research, you might have begun to feel that you know less than you did before. That’s why StayNTouch has put together a helpful guide to help you compare and learn why their Rover PMS has quickly become the preferred PMS solution for both independents and chains alike.
Here are just seven of the many reasons why hotels of all sizes and service levels choose StayNTouch Rover PMS over other PMS solutions.
1. Full-Featured PMS Functionality
StayNTouch offers next-generation PMS technology functionality without the restrictions and overhead costs of being tied down to large, complicated legacy systems. Features and capabilities available in Rover PMS include: integrated booking engine, reservations management, rate and revenue management, group management, housekeeping, distribution/channel management, custom dashboards and analytics, reporting, multi-property management, back office/accounting, , payment integrations, mobile check-in and check-out, self-service stations, marketing automation, PCI Compliant, digital signature capture, and much more.
2. Ease of Use
Savvy hoteliers know that the goal of PMS technology is to provide the executive management team and front-line employees with tools to run the hotel profitably, not to spend their time learning and managing the technology. StayNTouch offers a high-performing, intuitive and easy to use system so that employees can focus on what matters most - guests. Unlike many other hotel systems on the market, StayNTouch PMS requires minimal training and provides a touch/graphic user experience. Moreover, in an industry with such high turnover rates, the StayNTouch PMS doesn’t require excessive training and can avoid frustrations, errors, and costs associated with more cumbersome solutions.
3. Cost Savings
There are definitely cost savings when implementing StayNTouch PMS, and the lower total cost of ownership (TCO) allows hoteliers to re-invest in innovative ideas rather than technological infrastructure. StayNTouch Rover is a cloud-based PMS that can be implemented quickly with the least amount of disruption to the workflow. Unlike on-premise solutions, the cost of entry is substantially lower, and when you grow as a hotel - the scalability and flexibility of the StayNTouch PMS makes it the preferred choice of forward-thinking hotels. Because it is offered on a SaaS pricing model, everything is combined into an all-inclusive monthly fee. That means no more maintenance fee surprises or extra support charges. The investment is also highly manageable from a budgetary standpoint due to the predictable nature of the cost structure.
4. Mobile & Self-Serve:
StayNTouch Rover mobile PMS enables hoteliers to meet emerging expectations while creating more meaningful interactions between hotel guests and employees. Staff can move about the hotel and still have access to the PMS on their tablets. Accessible and fully functional on any tablet device, a mobile PMS eliminates inefficiencies in the guest experience, like waiting in line at the front desk. Beyond front desk services, a mobile PMS can streamline and improve other functional areas of the hotel. Employees can access the PMS from anywhere on property and use the data to make more informed decisions or resolve issues quickly. Guests can also have a choice in the way they interact with the hotel. With Rover, they can self-check-in or engage with a welcoming staff member face-to-face using a tablet. This includes integrated secure mobile credit card swipe and mobile guest room key encoding. Guests can also reach out to for on-property requests using their preferred methods including smartphone, text, and mobile. Management can monitor guest activity and revenue performance on a tablet, even off-site. By providing more self-service options, hotels can create more touch points with the guest - each one an opportunity to capture valuable data that improves the guest experience and drives more revenue.
