Streamline operational tasks to make everyone’s stay easier.
The right partner for your hotel merchant account can help you save time on operational tasks and money as well. Your payment processing should be as smooth and fresh as clean linens. For example, with a POS solution built expressly for hotels you can:
- Quickly access your complete reservation log, as well as view individual guest’s reservation history at your hotel—without having to fumble through paper records
- Track and manage inventory for your hotel, including the supplies for your office, restaurant, snack bar, housekeeping, and more
- Pull reporting that details peak reservation times at your hotel, as well as data on which associates are booking the most reservations
Consider how your guests would like to pay at checkout time.
When you’re deciding among your payment processing options—from terminals to fully-integrated POS systems think about your guests’ needs. In the age of Uber, more consumers are turning to their smartphones to pay. Consider this: 35% of consumers say that using a mobile app as a way to pay in-person is “a convenient way to pay.” 30% see using a mobile app as “a fast way to pay” (Source: Ipsos). Choosing a hotel POS system that accepts mobile payments may be a great way to attract new, young guests, as well as keep your current clientele happy.
Decrease risk from fraud and data compromise.
Protecting your guests and your receipts from the risks of data compromise and fraud are as big a business as running the hotel itself. Certain high dollar-amount transactions—especially when booked far in advance or for a large block of rooms—are known to carry a high risk of chargeback. Choose a partner for your hotel merchant account who understands the day-to-day life of a hotel, and can help you reduce your risk of losing profits to disputed transactions. Wrap the hotel in a security blanket designed to protect you and your customers from data theft and fraudulent transactions of all sorts.
