Property Management System

Maximise your revenue by utilising bedrooms all year round

 

So you're achieving good revenue during the academic year but how about when summer comes around? This is a great time for you to capitalise on corporate business. You can offer your bedrooms alongside conference and event bookings giving attendees the option to stay overnight. You can also open up your rooms to the public via your website and on Online Travel Agents (OTAs) such as booking.com. All of this is made possible via our PMS system.

Simon Barlow

Interim Head of Commercial Sales and Marketing Manager | Queen Mary University of London

 

Having Kx has helped us increase non-student bedroom sales, resulting in a substantial increase in surplus revenue. We are thankful to the team at Kinetic for their help.

Noreen O’Malley

General Manager of Conference and Events | University of Limerick, Conference and Sports Campus

 

Prior to the installation of Kx these reservations were processed manually which was a very time-consuming process. Since introducing Kx, our efficiency has greatly increased as our front of house staff can view real-time information and we have greater control over our bed stock and room
sales.

Jane Donachy

Associate Director of Catering Retail and Accommodation | University of the Arts London

 

Over the past few years, we have significantly increased the revenue we generate through the summer business. Income has grown by almost two-thirds and yet the increase to our team has been minimal by comparison. Kx has enabled us to do this, ensuring we maximise revenue whilst keeping associated admin to a minimum. Using Kx has also provided us with an opportunity to focus on the guest experience, rather than spending our time on manual processes and updating the myriad of spreadsheets we all know and love! Now we not only have more customers but happier ones as well.
