A resort is a pretty big property when it comes to management. It is a meticulous task of monumental magnitude. Multiple areas need to be micro-monitored to master the art and science of resort management. Well, in the present context, it makes sense to take help from technology to perform these tasks efficiently. Resort management software is the technology for the task, which serves as a great tool for managers and resort owners, helping them perform the task to precision. However, not all deserve to be invested in, and hence, here is a roundup of five best resort management software in 2019 that are worth the money.

Founded in 1981 and headquartered in Vail, Colorado, Resort Data Processing was founded with the aim to provide hotels and resorts with a powerful software that would help their business grow. In its 30-years lifetime, the software has seen installation at more than 1,000 locations across the globe with users giving out glowing reviews about the performance of RDP. Every day, 800 businesses rely on RDP to manage their resorts, and it includes the entire spectrum of commercial properties such as hotels, timeshares, condo, RV resorts, and workforce housing that are offered for rent to tenants, guests, backpacker, tourists, corporates, etc.

It is a solid and exhaustive software that works for the betterment of the client by focusing on efforts that would generate substantial additional income for the resort owners. It offers a host of income-generating tools, the most prominent among them being the internet reservation module through which the client can integrate their website with the booking engine or API of RDP. It facilitates reservations for guests, hotel owners, travel agents, groups, and wholesalers throughout the year, letting them access directly into the RDP system. There is mobile formatted booking engine to get more customers, as more people search and book hotels through their smartphones, helping drive conversions. The guest itinerary and activities pave way for selling additional items such as golf, boats, and the like. One can also create virtual store to sell services such as spa, yoga, and the like. Click here to schedule an in depth demo.

The software has in-built mechanism to calculate additional reservation charges for the bookings and purchase. To further increase the revenue, there is facility to create packages with extra rates that include breakfast, honeymoon, and more. One can increase occupancy through the guest rewards and point system, which works to one’s advantage in the off-season or the slow season or mass inventory distribution through the RDP global distribution system or affiliated integrations. For customer engagement, there is automatic guest survey that can be used as a form as well as a persuasive marketing tool to generate another booking.

The automatic email confirmations provide mass email facility that ensures customer retention while also paving the way for fresh bookings. RDP eases the operations-related task for management, and one can make reservations, check out statements, disburse payments, monitor work calendar, make work entries, and much more. This ease of operations works in the favor of staff and reduces the phone calls by a significant degree.

Using the software, one can keep tabs on the resort through a single platform that is accessible from mobile and desktop anytime, anywhere. Safe and sealed against data breaches, it secures the payment gateways, maintains the privacy of users, and sends alerts if any suspicious activity is detected. It is also flexible. In fact, adaptability is its middle name, and it changes for each client and every system is custom built to the needs of customer and their operation style.

RDP introduces new features as per the client’s demand and also adds switches to the specific feature so that it is active only for the specific customer. Their latest edition is RDPWin V5, which is built with focus on efficiency and the ability to expand with the future. This is the most powerful and comprehensive solution to date and comes with new modules and features built to fuel your business for years to come. It is easy to configure, it gets started in minutes, and the user can feel the effect of the software’s efficiency within days. The staff is available 24/7, all year round for support and dedicated implementation.

RDP believes in building solid bridges with customers, and it is best reflected in the multiple customer conference held by the company every year, where hundreds of customers congregate to receive in-depth training and give feedback and suggestions. The brainstorming brings out the best ideas, and most of RDP’s top features are the result of this conference. So if one wants a revenue-oriented software that would churn out results in record time while also being adaptable and affordable, then Resort Data Processing is the right route to take. Schedule your demo now!
