Editions

Software to manage the hotel, without the hotel managing you!

If you already have a computer and printer you are missing the most powerful part “the hotel software”. It is unlikely you will want to use ALL the software features right away, however, in time you will be glad of the many built-in tools which come with Resident Pro.

Resident Pro includes all the important tools you need to manage the hotel, without the hotel managing you. The Professional and Lite Editions of Resident Pro is all you need to run a hotel. If you don’t want to limit Resident Pro to one computer, then the software tools from the Softwareworks Studio can link Resident Pro to other computers, telephone systems, epos, and online bookings.

Whichever Edition you choose, Resident Pro software naturally flows to enable you to manipulate bookings on a powerful Reservations Chart. From here you can check guests in and out, add to guest invoices, leave special notes and memo’s on the system, and use the built-in function diary to enter non-residents, weddings and conferences. Restaurant lists, Housekeeping lists, and Maintenance jobs are available with a couple of clicks of the mouse. And letter writing and email confirmations become a breeze.

If you need Historical archives and financial balances then choose the Professional Edition…

Professional Edition

Professional EditionThe Professional Edition of Resident Pro is packed with features to manage all your bookings; past, present and future. This complete and accountable system of work is suitable for hoteliers who employ and entrust their staff to balance daily sales. It archives occupancy figures, revenue, and management statistics. Unleash the power of Resident Pro with the Professional Edition, and take full control of your hotel. The main advantage over the Lite Edition, is the Professional Edition’s accountability, and financial aspects, together with it’s Guest History analysis. The Guest History automatically gives you statistics (heads on beds, occupancy levels, source of business, non-resident covers, etc.) and the ability to re-print bills, long after the guest has checked out. It’s accountable because the “Staff logs” record all the activity – for example, who is making and changing bookings, and bills, and when deposits and refunds are taken. The financial aspect is at the core of the software. It takes bill production further, to allow your Reception team to balance your sales daily, and to automatically produce banking and monthly takings reports for your accountant. Cash accounting transactions can optionally be exported to Sage. Prices start from £999.00 With 1 year support. Price List PDF

 

Small Guest House Edition

No Daily Balance or HistorySuitable for small proprietor-run businesses that simply want to manage their present and future bookings, and printout bills for their guests, without retaining any history. The Small Guest House Edition of Resident Pro delivers all the power of the Professional Reservations Chart, without the Book Keeping. Unlike the Professional Edition, there is no archiving of occupancy charts, revenue, statistics, or daily balances. If you simply want to make bookings for your guests, and produce bills, this Lite Edition takes the further financial aspects out of the picture. With no Guest History, or daily balances, you will be relying on other, separate systems, for recording your ongoing takings, and archives. Although this Lite Edition keeps names and addresses of past guests in it’s “look up” database, there is no structured archiving of financial activity or statistical information to look back on. Prices start from £499.00 With 6 months support. Price List PDF

I bought Resident Pro as the booking engine for my hotel in Shropshire, and liked it so much we bought another hotel just so we could buy it again! First rate service and a nice company to deal with. Don’t go anywhere else.  View More Testimonials…
