The requirements for booking a function room within PMS software are very different from the hotel rooms.
For a start, a hotel room booking would usually span 2 or more dates between arrival and departure, where a function space would be booked for one or more whole days, or parts of the day. A wedding might be booked for an afternoon and evening, where a business networking breakfast might use the space in a morning only.
Similarly a function room isn't booked for a "Nightly rate" with a minimum length of stay, nor does the concept of a hotel room's "occupancy" translate meaningfully to the number of attendees at a function.
So using a "regular" PMS hotel room to record an event or function is not ideal.
Our Hotel Events and Functions software module provides dedicated bookable spaces for weddings and wakes, business meetings, parties - anything where larger gatherings of people come together - and what's more, these functions can be linked to hotel room bookings for convenience.
If your existing PMS software doesn't support Events and Functions properly, watch the video below and see how it's done!
