Here you will find a current market overview of industry software for hotels and lodging businesses as well as the rental of vacation properties and for campgrounds. Hotel software usually maps all typical processes such as booking management and category plans, a reservation system and all essential functions for contact and guest management. Property Management Systems (PMS - another commonly used term for hotel software) supports CheckIn and CheckOut (e.g. registration printing) and usually also offers the possibility to create marketing and management reports, to keep a digital guest folder and to print out housekeeper lists, cleaning lists, occupancy schedules, etc.
The property management software usually also includes modules for financial accounting, controlling and credit card accounting and offers corresponding interfaces to cash register systems. The PMS often includes modules or interfaces, for example, to online booking platforms (booking engines), management of wellness areas or telephone systems, electronic locking systems, and pay TV or minibars. Larger hotels or even hotel chains usually also benefit from a channel management and a revenue management system.
