How It Works: Splitting A Guest's Reservation

Posted by John Shortall on July 1, 2015 at 7:30 AM

Why It Is Important:

Accommodate Your Guests Needs While Consolidating Their Information

The split reservation function is useful when a guest has a booking but you need to move them to another room for part of their stay. Instead of making a new reservation you can add a split to the current folio so all the important information will be consolidated into one folio and guest receipt. You can tell when a reservation has a split on the tape chart as it will have an arrow on each end indicating the reservation continues on or has prior nights.

How It Works: Add-Ons and POS Items

Posted by John Shortall on March 30, 2015 at 4:40 PM

Why It Is Important:

Offer Your Guests More Than Just a Bed To Sleep In

Inventories that fail to match tallies, unrecorded sales, and simple human errors can all easily be avoided when using the Frontdesk Anywhere POS system. With our POS tab, you can easily add products to your guests bill such as a cup of coffee or a little something more relaxing like a massage from the hotel spa. Not to be confused with your POS, room add-ons are also easily managed through the guest folio so you’ll never forget to charge for that parking spot or over night pet fee.

How It Works: Unassigned Reservations

Why It Is Important:

Manage Your Overbookings In The Face of Guest Cancellations 

The Unassigned room status is just one of many features that allows Frontdesk Anywhere the flexibility to cater to any managers operating style. An unassigned reservation in the system is allocated to a certain room type, but not a specific room number within that room type.

How It Works: Blocks and Holds

Posted by John Shortall on October 31, 2014 at 5:01 PM

Why It Is Important:

Set Aside Rooms That Should Not Be Rented (DNR) or For Guests Who Haven't Confirmed The Reservation.

Every hotelier likes to run their property at near full capacity; after all more guests means more money. Sometimes it’s necessary to hold a room for a special guest or block off a room that’s under renovation. Frontdesk Anywhere offers two unique features, room Holds and room Blocks to accommodate your needs during those busy periods where certain rooms need to remain unoccupied.

How It Works: Single Item Transfer

Posted by John Shortall on July 25, 2014 at 7:30 AM

Why It Is Important:

Split The Bill Between Guests

Splitting a guest’s bill to either share the charges with one or potential multiple other guests or to be billed later is an important part of the revenue collection process. Now, this process is simpler than ever with our Single Item Transfer feature. This is a fantastic resource that allows properties even more flexibility to bill separate accounts with charges originating in the same folio.
