An interesting year lies behind us. Lodgit Desk has improved further this year –also thanks to your support– so that it now ranks on Google’s second place for the German keyword “Hotelsoftware”.
We are now working very hard on achieving a similar success for Lodgit Desk in the English speaking countries.
We believe that the update released at the beginning of 2012 will be one of the deciding factors in the future success of our hotel management software project. This update will allow users of Lodgit Desk to access the hotel software simultaneously from different desktops in a network by using a high-performance SQL server.
This server add-on for your Lodgit Desk license will cost a one-time fee of EUR250 and can be added to your license at any time. You will also need the cubeSQL server by SQLabs. For up to 3 concurrent connections, it is currently available for free, see http://www.sqlabs.com/cubesql_pricing.php
In order to try out the new server features we will start a beta test phase in January of 2012. For this test phase we invite some of our customers that are currently not using either of our online modules (Online Calendar & Owner-Booking or Online Booking System) to become beta testers for us. If you are interested, please let us know as soon as possible!
As a small thank you gift, our selected beta testers will receive the server add-on for the reduced price of EUR150 and, during the time of beta testing, will receive the best possible support to minimise the risk of potential data loss.
Other important new features of the new version 1.9 of Lodgit Desk will be:
- export of accounting information for accounting softwares (e.g. DATEV)
- integration of a 4-level dunning system
- creation of PDF files for all correspondence
- new price units: “per month”, “per year”, “flat fee”, “flat fee/person”
- export of archive lists as CSV and Excel files and more
The next big project we will take on in 2012 will be the integration of a channel manager, so that you'll be able to use some of the important online booking portals such as booking.com, HRS, etc. with Lodgit Desk.
