Abacus Hotels upgrade to Guestline's hospitality software and support solutions
Guestline welcome Abacus Hotels as the latest hotel group to select the company’s leading cloud hosted property management and channel distribution solutions; installation is now complete at three of the group’s Best Western properties across Norfolk and Cambridgeshire.
The group decided to upgrade to Guestline’s systems, which included an integration to Best Western’s two-way interface and a fully integrated EPoS system, to overcome server, integration and system support issues they had been experiencing.
The Abacus management team are delighted with Guestline’s hospitality software’s ease of use, following a smooth installation that now gives them seamless operation and control across their portfolio and assists them in increasing revenues and streamlining operations.
“We recognised the need for a PMS provider with whom we could develop a pro-active relationship and after speaking to Castlewood Hotels and Russell Imrie from Queensferry Hotels [two Guestline clients], we were confident that Guestline’s solutions would satisfy our needs, especially with the ongoing UK support and development that Guestline provide.
We had been getting increasingly frustrated with system operational challenges, support response times and problem resolution before selecting Guestline.
The installation went smoothly; the Guestline staff were helpful and listened to our concerns. Having a central overview of all the properties helps with day-to-day management, alongside the fact that we now have greater yield management and much better control over our rates.
The seamless connection to the Best Western two-way interface drives bookings that are automatically uploaded to our PMS thereby reducing administration and human error.”
Howard Darking , Managing Director of Abacus Hotels
