Business was always good for La Maison Royale because of great hospitality towards the guests. But it had certain data administrative issues. The management had to spend exhaustive hours to manually update their inventory because of the front desk and channel manager they were using earlier. Both the systems simply did not comply with each other. They were looking for an easy-to-use front desk system that could work hand-in-hand with the channel manager to make their operations smooth and less cumbersome.
La Maison Royale researched for the best available front desk systems in the market along with a booking engine and channel manager. They were clear of not dealing with several vendors for different products from different companies. Fortunately, their search for an ideal PMS ended when they found that eZee FrontDesk (Hotel Management System), eZee Reservation (Hotel Booking Engine) and eZee Centrix (Online Channel Manager) matched all the requirements they were looking for. They were very satisfied with the pool performance of eZee FrontDesk and eZee Centrix. All the bookings were automated which reduced efforts and saved a lot of time and unnecessary headaches for the management.
La Maison Royale witnessed a substantial amount of increase in direct online bookings after installation of eZee PMS. They were able to get in-depth analysis of various reports including inventory as well as they were successfully able to avoid the risk of overbooking. Ultimately, they were able to spend a quality time in revenue generating activities.
