Good to hear from you. As usual day to day stuff keeps getting in the way of development of our system. I am constantly tweaking our SambaPos system to catch processes that happen real life that I have not considered, especially with Guest management processes.
I still feel some merit in developing the POS as a mini PMS mostly because my staff cannot cope with any levels of data input or PC based decision making. I find myself designing automation and screens to simplify to a painful level. Then adding lots of automation to double check everything before checking a guest out. The main advantage is being able to tailor the input screen to my staff capabilities.
I am still undecided about the merit of changing over to a new PMS/Diary just to facilitate an API transfer of information. Been looking at Beds24 but not sure if my staff can live with the additional PC literacy requirements compared to FreetoBook (my current Diary/Channel Manager).
How is the business going for you?
