In every hotel there are at least two services hotels provide to their customers - one is to provide guests with a room for the night and the other is to sell them items they may need during their stay. The items a guest may need could be a meal or beverage from the onsite restaurant, bar or café or it could be an incidental item sold from the lobby gift store making the guest’s stay more comfortable or enjoyable. So, it is no wonder that smart hoteliers like Skyware Hospitality Systems Point-of Sale module is directly integrated into their Property Management system.
