Many owners of holiday apartments, pensions or smaller hotels, have so far been without the convenience of specialised accommodation booking system to manage their accommodation. Instead they have mostly kept their own handwritten occupancy books.
The software solutions available up to now were often too complicated or too expensive. In contrast to large lodging establishments, which usually use an expensive hotel management program and can therefore accept bookings directly via the Internet, smaller establishments have to date lacked the means to acquire new customers through the web and to look after existing guests more effectively.
In times when people are increasingly planning and booking their holidays online, most small hotels are faced with the challenge of adapting to the latest technology.
With its newly developed booking program "Lodgit Desk", the Leipzig software specialist Dibomedia now provides small accommodation businesses the technical ability to compete for new guests against the "big" competition.
This cost-effective solution is specially tailored to the needs of the industry and, despite the price difference, has the important features that previously were only available in more costly hotel management programs.
Lodgit desk can be operated with Microsoft Windows as well as Apple Mac OSX. According to the manufacturer Dibomedia, there is no comparable booking software for Mac OS X on the market.
