  2. The Four “Rs” of Front Office Information Management • FOMs could do an effective job if they understood: • The desires of their guests • The rooms and hotel services available for sale • The price(s) to be charged for rooms and hotel services • The accounting and data management methods required for proper recordkeeping

  3. The Four “Rs” of Front Office Information Management • R1–Reservations Management MLOS (Minimum Length of Stay): A designation that instructs reservationists to decline a reservation request from any guest who will not reserve a room for the minimum number of days allowed as predetermined by the hotel.

  4. The Four “Rs” of Front Office Information Management • R2–Rooms Management The PMS must interface with many other data- and information-generating systems • Example: The front desk requires up-to-date information from the housekeeping department regarding clean/inspected guestrooms.

  5. The Four “Rs” of Front Office Information Management • R3–Revenue Management The PMS helps forecast demand for the hotel’s rooms, allows FOMs to rapidly adjust room rates, and performs sophisticated mathematical calculations resulting in suggested RevPar maximization strategies.

  6. The Four “Rs” of Front Office Information Management • R4–Records and Accounts Management The PMS can easily and quickly allow the front desk agent to establish, receive, and record the proper payment from each guest.

  12. Records and Accounts Management • Records management • Accounts management: • Creates guest folios (bills) • Updates the hotel’s accounting records

  13. Selecting a PMS • Important characteristics to consider: • Reliability • Cost of operation • Ease of installation • Ease of use • Ease of interface integration • Maintenance requirements • Ease and frequency of upgrading & updating • Quality and availability of support services
