Review from Eureka Lodge and Lake Inn Ballarat

5.0 12 months ago

Comments: GuestPoint is functional to all sizes of accommodation businesses. easy to use but there are rooms to improve.

Pros:

easy to use and responsive support team!

Cons:

sometimes crash, Group booking and multiply room booking are hard for new receptionists. Company invoicing could not be reversed. Invoicing number are different to room account invoice number.

Good company to deal with

4.0 12 months ago

Comments: We have been dealing with Guest Point for 10 years and have an excellent relationship with them. It is an excellent booking system. If the software would integrate with our accounting system it would be perfect.

Pros:

The support is exceptional. If we have problems they are resolved quickly.It is stable, rarely has glitches.Reservations are easy to make, search and email invoices to guests. The invoicing process is easy. Easy to set up Accounts. The customer information retention is good. Roll over easy. The Dash Board function is excellent, this helps us manage our business. Automated email function. The way the screen is set put with tabs down one side and then a "folder (s)" with further information under Customer, Accounting and Management tabs.

Cons:

The monthly reporting does not integrate with our accounting system. This has caused us to create complicated month end processes. If the software could speak to accounting systems it would be much better.

Don't go near Guest Point unless you want double bookings

2.0 6 years ago

Comments: Apart from the above issues and the major fault (#1), Guest Point would of been a great PMS which I would of recommended to others. Unfortunately the update time between Guest Point and your channel manager ruins the whole system because it makes it a liability for your property. I wouldn't normally leave a bad review on a company however the fact we first mentioned this fault over 12 months again, you can never get a hold of anyone, no one ever gets back to you from their company makes it obvious their staff don't actually care and Centium Software is more focused on their Event Air software rather the Guest Point.

Pros:

Has many good features that other PMS don't have. Property dashboard is a good idea, Management Tab is relatively easy to set up although some features weren't thought out very well like the promotions feature which could of been structured better to manage contracts. Accounts Management is really good, no complaints here over the functionality of the department. Customer Management is easy to manage and access data however again not thought out very well. The reservations calendar is visually good although takes getting use to, Guest Point has many good features other PMS's don't have however also has many annoying things which make it obvious it was designed by developers rather than them seeking advice for people in the industry.

Cons:

#1 fault with Guest Point which is why I wouldn't recommend it to other operators is it is the only PMS on the market who don't update availability to your channel manager on a regular basis. Most PMS I've dealt with in the past update your availability to your online platforms every 30-60 sec, Guest Point can take up to 10-20 mins before to sends an update to your channel manager. Also it can often take up to 10-20 minutes before an online reservation appears on your booking Calendar, not good if that was you last room and someone books it over the phone before the online booking appears. On top of that, beyond 3 months out from your current date they will only update your channel manager once a day. If you take a reservation over the phone 6 months out it will often be still bookable for over 12 hours online before Guest Point send an update to your channel manager. The staff at Guest Point don't seem to care about how big of an issue that is risking their customers reputations with double bookings as I first made them aware of this fault over 12 months ago and they still have no valid answers. All I have got out of them is them blaming the channel managers however after investigating multiple PMS and Channel Managers I discovered this is not true. Despite all the good features which would actual make Guest Point a great system to recommend this one fault is the #1 reason I would warn people away from Guest Point unless you like double bookings. #2 Support - Support if often difficult to get a hold of. Most modern systems have an online support portal to communicate through however with Guest Point you have to phone first. The majority of the time you get a hold of someone in their admin which can't help with an issue but schedules a ticket where a support team member will call back. Typically it takes a few hours before anyone contacts you. #3 Customer Tab - Gathering, storing and accessing guest information is great however customer/ individual records can't be linked to a company. When your making a booking it would of been great when you select said company that a list of all the employees or individuals in that company appear. This just makes it awkward when a regular books and you can't remember his name and or the company name so a feature like this would of been nice. #4 Reservations - Reservations are pretty simple to make however again their are a number of things the developers didn't think through properly. For example if your on the phone with a travel agent who wants you to book 4 rooms. You could book all 4 rooms at the same time however if they have different Purchase Orders you have to do them individually and then you don't have a record of which reservations are associated with each other. Also, you can't link reservations after they have been made, if you want them to be linked then you have to delete the reservations and start again which is just annoying.

Highly Recommended!

5.0 5 years ago

Comments: Overall, very happy customers and would highly recommend GuestPoint to any motelier looking for a reliable, easy to use, feature packed property management system.

Pros:

From the initial setup, install and training we have found the program and their service to be of a very high standard. The colour coded reservation plan is very easy to read and see your occupancy/availability at a glance. Making bookings is simple and we have found the automated emails and text messages a great marketing tool (and we’ve received lots of compliments from the customers too about the “Personal emails and texts”). There are a myriad of reports you can run – all the ones you would normally expect in a PMS, as well as extras such as which of your regular customers haven’t stayed in a little while. We often use this to follow up and see what they’re up to. Our absolute favourite feature though would have to be the “dashboard”. It is so easy to compare our performance, as well as see where all of our bookings are coming from and so many other stats. We have always found their service to be extremely prompt and helpful – available 24/7.

Cons:

Nothing! I cannot fault anything about it.

Great product with the ability to grow

5.0 2 years ago

Comments: Always great to deal with!
Support returns calls straight away. If issues occurred team viewer was always an option to go through it. Not that it happened often.

Pros:

Software has the ability to grow and build on API integration which is great! Automation was a big part of our business model and Guestpoint was able to provide most of it and if it couldn't they could develop an API to make it work.

Cons:

I would have like to have seen it app based rather than browser based.
