RoomKeyPMS – 8.16.0.1 – July 2015

A description of the features, interfaces, integrations and defects for release 8.16.0.1

New Features and Improvements:

RoomKeyPMS Enhancements

Force Guest Profile Search

Having a “clean” Guest Profile database is essential in collecting proper stats on guest stays and targeting the right groups of people. The Force Search option requires the agent to search for an existing Guest Profile before continuing to make a reservation. The Force Search will have an optional permission for those properties that wish to use this feature. To learn more about the Force Search option – CLICK HERE

Release Update Communication

When using any software, it is always important to keep up to date on the latest version, not only to ensure the software runs smoothly but also for taking advantage of new features. To help notify the properties when a new release of RoomKeyPMS is ready, there is a message that displays on the RoomKeyPMS application and the added bonus is being able to update right within RoomKeyPMS itself.

Tape Chart Icons

The Tape Chart is primarily used as a good “visual” representation of where reservations/guests have been assigned. To improve the information that is displaying for the properties, we have added special icons for Shares, Repeat, and VIP, as well as showing the types of guests like Transient, Corporate, Group, and Wholesale.

New Res Add-on

Should you need to copy an existing reservation, the New Res Add-on function has been added to the Tape Chart by right clicking on the reservation:
