How many guests are staying at your hotel? What countries are they from? How many checked in today? How many checked out? What rooms still need to be cleaned? What is today’s revenue and what in-room balances remain to be settled? protel Air includes a comprehensive suite of reports for effective hotel management.
protel Air Active Lists
Active lists allow for easier, interactive management of reservations and guests. Sort by name, show or hide certain columns or use filters to define which information is to be displayed. Open a reservation or a guest profile, send out reservation confirmations or generate an invoice.
protel Air Housekeeping
The housekeeping module provides real time room status and maintenance tracking to streamline the interaction between housekeeping and front desk staff.
The explosion in tablet and smart phone usage and the proliferation of apps now available opens up a world of opportunity for the tech savvy hotelier. protel Air has been designed from the ground up with mobile in mind and a number of apps have already been conceived/released to complement the system and provide users with a competitive edge.
“protel Air for iPad” is an optional add-on for protel Air and provides all classic front office functions – and more – on the iPad.
Spare your guests unnecessary waiting time and check them in while greeting them (they can even electronically sign registration cards on the iPad – no paper needed), retrieve and edit current statistics during meetings or use the iPad as a “floating front desk” to flexibly manage peak seasons.
“protel Air Housekeeping” is a mobile app which replicates the housekeeping features in the main system through an intuitive user interface designed specifically for smartphones. Housekeeping staff use the app to identify which rooms are vacant and require cleaning, update room status in real time and even generate Lost & Found and maintenance records, using the integrated camera function to attach pictures, where required.
