It's a valuable tool for front office or reception staff when creating reservations for a particular room category, streamlining the booking process and enhancing efficiency.

Cheers,

Property Configuration

We have upgraded our cancellation policy for online and walk-in bookings. Hotels can set multiple policies for different channels and map it in the PMS. This will help automatic posting or voiding of booking charges on folio. This process cuts down the daily audit process time by 60%.

AI-Powered Reputation Management

Stayflexi software now has a Reputation Management feature, enabling hotels to manage reviews from multiple channels in a single platform. With the help of Flexigpt, users can respond to reviews, and the responses will be published on the corresponding online channel. Currently, this feature is available for Booking.com only, and we plan to expand it to other channels based on API feasibility

Shops

Our latest feature for restaurants is the Service Charge functionality, which allows guests to be charged for services rendered. You can customize the service charge by going to the shop's configuration outlet. The system generates a report with a new column displaying the total service charge collected against each order, giving hotels a clear understanding of the service charges. The service charge is optional, and hotels can remove it from the bill if guests don't wish to pay.

Group Booking

We have extended the day-level pricing feature to group bookings, enabling hotels to define varying room prices for each day, based on their agreement with the customer. With this feature, hotels have more control over the pricing and can negotiate in real time while making bookings. It empowers hoteliers to offer competitive rates and provides greater flexibility in managing group bookings.

Quick & Group Booking

We've introduced a new feature that enables hotels to include guest company details while making Quick & Group bookings. With this feature, hotels can now raise bills for walk-in customers to their respective companies without having to create a company account under direct billing. This functionality has also been added to the room folio, allowing guests to request a bill for their invoice to the company account.

Rate Shopper

We've improved our rate shopper feature to make it easier for hotels to add competitor hotels. Hoteliers can now simply copy and paste the URL of the online travel portal, such as Booking.com, Agoda, and Expedia, to add competitors. The rate shopper displays a competitor hotel's rates, rank, occupancy, and other relevant information, allowing hotels to make informed pricing decisions.

Reservation calendar & Dashboard

The software now allows hoteliers to define room names and colors for specific room categories in the Property configuration. These room names and colors will then be displayed in the reservation calendar for easy identification.

The software now includes a feedback page on the dashboard, allowing hotel users to share their thoughts and opinions on the Stayflexi system and team in real time. The Stayflexi team will use this feedback to continually improve their products and better serve their customers.

Group Properties:- Bulk Rate & Inventory Management

The software now offers a single page display of group inventory, rates, and restrictions for multiple properties. This feature is particularly useful for hotel owners, revenue managers, or administrators who handle multiple properties, as it provides an easy-to-understand overview of data for all properties on a single page, allowing for more efficient decision-making.

Property Configuration

The software now has a derived pricing functionality that allows hotels to define parent and child room categories. Based on the defined relationship between these categories, the system will automatically set the price for child rooms. Hoteliers only need to update the price for parent rooms and the child room price will be automatically adjusted accordingly. If the dependency feature is activated, only the parent room type option will be available for price updates in the PMS.

Shops

The software now allows hotel staff to cancel or transfer a shop bill from one room or table number to another if a wrong restaurant order has been added to a guest folio by mistake and the food has not been consumed. This feature enables hotels to correct bills and provide accurate billing information to customers.

Room Folio

The new software feature allows hotels to create custom folios from advance invoices, making it easy to separate bills for rooms, add-ons, and shop purchases if a guest requests a separate bill.

Rates & Inventory Calendar

The software now includes "Total Offline Rooms" and "Total Blocked Rooms" rows to provide a clear overview of the overall room status of the property, rather than just for a specific room category. This makes it easier for hoteliers to understand the overall room availability.

­

Report

The software now includes an "Arrival Report" in the report scheduler, which allows hotel managers to view the number of guests arriving on a particular day. This feature helps managers plan ahead for meals, room assignments, and other day-to-day operations based on the number of expected arrivals.

The software now includes a "Bulk Void" and "Bulk Cancellation" option in the folio report, allowing hotel managers to perform these operations on multiple bookings at once. This feature is particularly useful when dealing with partially cancelled bookings, as managers can filter bookings based on status and make decisions accordingly, rather than having to handle each booking individually.

The software has been updated to include Booking Engine and Google Hotel Ads source details in the Payment report, in addition to other booking sources. The Payment report now also includes payment breakup information for transactions made through payment gateways. This new feature aims to simplify the payment reconciliation process for hotel owners by providing them with a comprehensive overview of payment statuses from these sources, enabling them to cross-verify the information more efficiently.

­Miscellaneous

  • The software now displays the rate plan name on the folio PDF, making it easier for hotels to give a bill to customers and show which rate plan the guest has chosen.
  • The software now has an "Occupied Room" filter in the reservation calendar, allowing hoteliers to easily retrieve data for all occupied rooms with just one click.

Reservation calendar & Dashboard

A new feature has been added to the Dashboard which displays the availability stats of each room type. This feature is particularly useful for front desk personnel who can easily check the availability of a specific room type on a particular day and make room bookings accordingly. Additionally, there is an option to check for the latest updates on the Stayflexi system. Another exciting feature is the “Refer and Earn” program, which can be accessed directly from the Dashboard and offers rewards for successful referrals.

We have introduced a new feature that allows us to assign rooms directly from the dashboard in case a booking is unassigned. This will simplify the work of our front office staff by displaying only available rooms and their status (clean or dirty) for easy assignment.

We’ve introduced a new feature called Day Level Pricing in our PMS that enables hoteliers to set prices for each day individually. This feature is particularly useful for guests staying for longer durations as it provides them with greater clarity on the pricing for each day of their stay. This feature also allows hoteliers to manually override the system price for greater flexibility. We’re continuously enhancing this feature and plan to implement it for group bookings in the future.

A Group Booking icon has been added to the reservation calendar, making it easy for front desk staff to identify which bookings are part of a group reservation just by looking at the reservation grid.

We have added new search filters in the reservation calendar, such as Available rooms, Dirty Rooms, Clean and block rooms, along with room type filters. These filters will help you easily find the information you need for your hotel’s room availability.

Reports

Hotels can now access the Rate Plan count report under their front desk report. This report helps hotels estimate the number of meals they need to prepare for their guests, and also shows which meal plans are popular among guests.

We have added a feature to our Booking Engine report where hotels can now see a separate breakdown of commissions earned from Booking Engine and GHA. This will allow hotels to better track and analyse their commission earnings.

Booking Engine

Hotels can now display a tax breakdown on their booking engine. This feature helps guests understand the various taxes they are paying when making a reservation on the hotel’s website.

We have made some updates to the booking engine. The cancellation policy will now be displayed on the final booking page, giving guests a clear idea of the policy before they confirm their booking. In case the hotel has not added any cancellation policy, a notification will be displayed on the PMS.

Shops

Hotels can now upload their food menu in shops through an Excel file. They can simply fill out the Excel file and send it to the support team, who will upload it all at once. This makes the process much easier, especially if the menu contains a large number of food items.

In shops, it is now possible to cancel or modify specific items on a KOT even after it has been printed. This feature helps restaurant managers correct any mistakes made while punching in the order. Additionally, the KOT Modification report has been added to the shop report, allowing hotels to track all modified KOTs.

Now hotels can settle multiple shop bills added to a specific room folio in one go instead of settling them individually. This new feature will help hotels in saving time and effort while settling shop invoices from the room folio.

Revenue Management

The rate template feature has been upgraded with several new options, including the ability to create template prices for all channels or specific channels. Once created, templates can be implemented on all channels at once or on specific channels. Additionally, hotels can now increase or decrease already created template prices by a flat amount or percentage, providing more flexibility in managing room prices. This feature makes it easier for hoteliers to adjust room prices according to their needs.

Stock Management

  • A Stock Management dashboard has been added to provide a comprehensive overview of the stock data. This feature is particularly useful for managers or owners who want to quickly check the stock levels for a specific outlet.
  • A new beta feature for stock management specifically for housekeeping has been introduced. This feature allows hotels to manage stocks for a particular room category. Access to this feature will be provided to hotels upon request.

Rates & Inventory Calendar

Hotels can now update room inventory, room prices, and restrictions for multiple room categories in one go using the Bulk Operations feature under the Rates and Inventory calendar. This feature is particularly useful for revenue managers or individuals responsible for managing hotel inventory and pricing as it reduces workload and saves time.

  • A new feature has been added to the rates and inventory calendar page that allows hotels to view logs of all changes made to a specific room category for a particular date. This feature provides detailed information about any changes made on online travel portals, giving hotels better insight into their inventory management.

Direct Billing

  • We have added a feature where hotels can include direct billing company details in PDF format, making it easier for them to send the details to the respective companies.
  • We have added a new feature where, in case of direct billing enquiries, an email will be automatically sent to the direct billing company. This allows the direct billing company to promptly check the booking details and make payments in real-time. This feature helps to improve coordination between the hotel and the direct billing company.

Folio

  • A new feature has been added to the Room Folio that allows hotels to update the guest count or room price separately, or both at the same time.
  • To maintain the security of our guests’ card details, only the admin will have access to view any card added from the room folio..

Whatsapp Notifications

  • Hotels can now receive a daily summary of important data including Occupancy, Room Revenue, and Payment Collected via WhatsApp message if they choose to use this option.

Self Channel Mapping Tool

  • We’ve made it possible for properties listed on both booking.com and Expedia to be managed as a single property under a specific room type. By mapping independent booking.com and Expedia properties to a specific room type, it becomes easier to manage them as a single property. For more information on how to do this, please reach out to our support team at support@stayflexi.com.

Reservation calendar & Dashboard

Now, all enquiry on hold bookings will be visible in the reservation calendar, making it easy for front desk staff to view all bookings on a single page and make decisions based on room availability.

We’ve added a new Room Clean option to the reservation calendar, located next to each room number. This makes it easy for front desk staff to see the status of each room and take immediate action to clean it directly from the calendar grid, without having to navigate to the housekeeping page. With this new feature, you can ensure that all rooms are clean and ready for guests, providing a better overall experience for your customers.

We’ve upgraded our “Do Not Rent” feature, which now includes functionality based on mobile numbers as well. This means that if a customer has been blacklisted and their details are saved in the customer information page, including their mobile number and email ID, the Stayflexi system will identify them the next time they attempt to make a booking. Even if the customer provides a different email ID, as long as the mobile number matches, the system will flag them as blacklisted and suggest to the hotelier that they should not be rented to. This new feature ensures that you can maintain a safe and secure environment for your guests, while also streamlining your operations.

Reports

The Flash manager now has a new report that shows both detailed and summary views of payments received by the hotel. This report can be filtered to show payments received for a specific day, month to date, or year to date. You can even download the report as a PDF and print it out if you need a hard copy. The report will be sent to your email for easy access.

We’ve enhanced “Shift Report,” which provides a detailed breakdown of payment information for each shift. With this feature, you can see how much payment was collected during a particular shift and the breakdown of that payment by type, such as cash, card, or UPI. This information is especially useful for managing staff and tracking payment collection. With the Shift Report, you’ll have a clear understanding of how your business is performing on a shift-by-shift basis.

We’ve added several new reports to our Report Scheduler, including Sales Report, Inventory Report, Flash Manager, Master Report, Bar Pricing Report, and Inventory Forecast Report. Additionally, our reports can now be scheduled to be sent via email on a weekly basis. These reports provide valuable insights into your business’s sales, inventory, and overall performance, and make it easy to keep track of your operations on a regular basis. With our new and improved Report Scheduler, you’ll have the information you need to make informed decisions and drive your business forward.

Booking Engine

We’ve made improvements to the booking engine to make it easier for guests to understand restrictions set by hotels. If a hotel has implemented a Minimum Length of Stay (MLOS) restriction, the booking engine will now clearly display to guests how many nights they need to select to book a particular room. This way, guests won’t be confused and can easily complete their booking.

Shops

  • When a guest adds multiple shop bills to their room folio, Stayflexi will now combine them and show a summary view with the total amount. By clicking on the summary, the front desk staff can see a detailed list of each shop bill with dates, items, and other important information. This makes it easier for staff to calculate and collect payments from the guest.
  • You can now settle multiple shop bills from a guest’s room folio all at once. This feature will save time and effort for the front desk staff as they can select and settle multiple shop bills with one click, and the respective shops will receive their payments accordingly.

Miscellaneous

  • We’ve updated the room revenue, tax report, and cash counter-report to include the room number associated with each transaction. This makes it easy for the hotel owner and manager to identify which room number was involved in each operation, providing more clarity in understanding the data. This information will help you quickly identify and resolve any issues that arise
  • We’ve improved the group booking process to give you a faster and smoother experience when booking multiple rooms across different room categories.

  • We’ve added two new columns, TCS & TDS, to the Channel Manager report. This feature is particularly important for certain countries, as it provides an exact breakdown of the payment they will receive from online travel portal companies. With these columns, you can easily see the tax collected at source (TCS) and tax deducted at source (TDS), allowing for more accurate financial reporting and compliance with local regulations. This new feature ensures that you have all the information you need to make informed financial decisions for your business.
  • We’ve added a new BAR Pricing report to the report scheduler. This report provides valuable insights into your pricing strategy and revenue management, allowing you to make informed decisions for your business. The report will now be available via email, with an Excel attachment for easy access and analysis. With this new feature, you can stay on top of your pricing strategy and ensure that you are maximizing your revenue potential.
  • We’ve renamed the “Bill to CTA” feature to “Direct Billing” throughout the PMS. This change has been made to avoid confusion and ensure consistency across the system. With this update, you can easily identify and use the “Direct Billing” feature wherever it is needed in the PMS. This makes the billing process more streamlined and straightforward, ensuring a hassle-free experience for you and your customers.
  • Stayflexi now supports integration with Dwarpal, a modern SaaS-based door lock system. With Dwarpal, hotel can lock and unlock doors using numerical passwords. The system is also wifi-enabled, making it possible for hoteliers to manage their door locks from a different city. This integration is the future of door locks and is now supported by Stayflexi software.
