Our Hotel Management System offers one complete software solution covering all the processes in hospitality!

Achieve back office zen!

Sadly Hotel and Hospitably back-office teams often find themselves much lower down the pecking order than the front-office PMS and EPOS teams. However, the standards that are expected of them are high; carrying out advanced processes and in-depth business analysis are considered part of the course! Luckily, with the right back-office system life can be made so much easier allowing for ease of reporting and automation of complex processes.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV and Dynamics 365 offer the path to back-office zen! As they are full ERP systems you get an extensive tool-kit of functionality including real time reporting, purchase order & inventory management, sales & general ledgers to name a few (check out the full list of functionality below)! You can implement the parts of the solution that fit within your current infrastructure as a fully integrated core back office. Predicting future growth? Rest safe in the knowledge that Dynamics NAV and Dynamics 365 can grow with your business needs!

By making Dynamics NAV /365 your core system you will gain a single financial version of the truth. No more reporting on multiple systems and companies to understand your business; Dynamics NAV / 365 can fully integrate with your PMS and EPOS systems meaning you can report in real time on your revenue, costs and KPI’s directly in Dynamics NAV / 365.

Deployment is as flexible as your requirements:

  • Software - can be purchased with as single costs or on a subscription / Software as a Service (SAAS) basis
  • Hardware - you can install on your own servers, a 3rd party server, on The NAV People hosted Azure environment, or on The Cloud. This offers you all the flexibility of using your current hardware or an offsite / cloud solution with a monthly cost.

A typical deployment would include the below functionality but it can be scaled up or down to suit your requirements. Our aim is to make Dynamics NAV / 365 fit your current estate and reduce the number of applications you need!
