Integrate Hotel WiFi with your PMS system and automate billing for your guests
Nowadays, more and more hotel owners are incorporating Property Management Systems (PMS) to maximize efficiency and increase revenue across all locations. PMS systems help them manage room reservations, guest amenities, room inventory, accounting and billing, etc. Integrating Property Management Systems with Wi-Fi is a crucial first step for hotels that want to stay ahead of the curve by offering guests premium services. Not only will it improve guest experiences, but it is also a powerful tool to help manage complex systems, inventory, and services from one easy location.
The hotel PMS integration with a wireless network can ensure guest satisfaction by allowing guests the option to choose their Wi-Fi package instantly. Personalized information can be delivered to guests throughout the property, and all billing is done seamlessly. When done automatically, you can eliminate manual data entry that can lead to errors, missed billing, or billing disputes with guests. And as personalization becomes increasingly important, hotels can offer guests tie-ins to rewards programs.
This all can be done by connecting the hotel’s Internet gateway seamlessly to the hotel PMS.
A hotel Internet gateway is the backbone of a robust and reliable hospitality network. Inventum’s MSG Hotspot Gateways is the best solution for hotels. The all-in-one appliance combines the functions of a router, firewall, NAC, user directory & more in a ready-to-deploy solution.
