Standardization: The chain as one business unit
The ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle pointed out more than 2000 years ago that “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts”, a true statement to this day. Bellboy Hotel Management System architecture uses one central database, rather than separate individual databases, enabling the effective management of an entire hotel chain as a single business unit, guided by a centralized policy and strategy. Designed for hotel chains, the Bellboy Hotel Management System architecture provides an easy platform for managing a multi-property chain as a single business unit, guided by centralized policy and strategy. Bellboy uses one comprehensive centralized database containing data from all the hotels in the chain.
An example of this benefit is the Central Reservation Office(CRO) that provides the ability to display on a single screen the room price and the availability, in each of the hotels of the chain, and to reserve a room in a selected hotel. In addition, the system provides tools for a chain headquarters to manage and revise chain policies, as well as to display comparisons of performance results between several hotels or among similar groups of hotels within the chain.
