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 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, book a demo of Caterbook and see how it's done!
