Using a SQL hotel database server
You'd like to work with Lodgit Desk from multiple computers at the same time?
Using a database server is the solution! This allows you to simultaneously access the shared hotel program database from multiple computers over the same local wired network; letting you make bookings, create invoices, check in guests and more.
Multi user mode - work with Lodgit Desk from multiple computers on the same network
Easy Hotel Server Setup
For multi-user use, Lodgit Desk works together with the cubeSQL database server.
This system is easy to install on an ordinary Windows, Macintosh or Linux computer in your local network. It also allows you to obtain a free license for up to two concurrent connections! For more than two connections, inexpensive licenses can be purchased from the provider SQLabs.
Tip: The cubeSQL server uses few resources that you can easily use this server application on one of your existing computers.
While the installation is very simple we also offer detailed step by step instructions available to download as a PDF file. This also provides instructions on how to set up the backup function, and answers to the most common questions you will face.
What's important is that the computer running cubeSQL always remains switched on whenever you work with Lodgit Desk. This is because all users, regardless if they're on a Windows computer or a mac, will be accessing the same Lodgit database that's stored on the cubeSQL server.
Simple Migration: Easy Switch Over
After having installed and configured the server on a computer in your local network, you can easily switch Lodgit Desk over from single user to multi user mode (and thus make use of the server) with the click of one button. If there is no database present on the server yet, you'll be able to upload your current work database.
You can then access the database from any computer on the local network that has Lodgit Desk installed - whether it's a Windows or Mac computer.
The connection to the database server is an optional add-on module of Lodgit Desk, which you can add to your existing license at any time. The activation of this module can be ordered from our Online Shop. Afterwards this module will remain permanently activated in your license - so you won't face any future charges for it when renewing your license.
