Here in the Northern Hemisphere summer is finally emerging and many lodging operators are getting ready to sell activities like trail rides and fishing trips along with accommodation. Likewise, properties in the southern half of the world may be gearing up to offer ski packages and snowboarding lessons. Wherever you are, offering activities has the power to turn a lodging property into a destination in itself, attracting guests with the promise of a unique experience. But, operating activities or tours with accommodation also adds another layer of complexity to your business and a flexible and efficient property management system is the key to maximizing success.
Many of our clients were previously managing the accommodation and activity sides of their business with separate systems (computer- or paper-based), resulting in booking inefficiencies, billing errors and sometimes even revenue losses.
Recognizing the need for one simple yet flexible system that manages both accommodation and activity reservations, we integrated our cloud-based tour operator software, ActivityEngine, with WebRezPro Property Management System. With the ActivityEngine module, WebRezPro offers a complete solution to managing both sides of a stay-and-play business, improving efficiency and accuracy from bookings to billing to bookkeeping.
- >> Sell accommodation and activities independently through separate booking engines
- >> Or, sell activities and accommodation together through the room booking engine
- >> Combine accommodation and activity charges on the same invoice
- >> Easily track activity and room revenue
- >> Activity calendar and dispatch reports
- >> Activity sales and booking reports
Dunton Hot Springs Resort has been using WebRezPro with ActivityEngine since 2010. “Here at Dunton, we are all very happy with WebRezPro,” said Eduardo Rossi, General Manager of Dunton Hot Springs. “We are better able to keep track of activities and make sure that they go on the guest’s folio. I don’t have to worry that something has been forgotten on their bill.” (You can read the complete case study here.)
