1. Gain a Competitive Edge:

Hotel operating companies can leverage ROH to remove manual processes across the entire hotel back office, including moving to a paperless night audit and automating daily and monthly accounting tasks with real-time data. 

2. Be Efficient:

Digital tools are transforming night audit processes, making reporting more efficient and reducing the time spent on manual data entry. The transition from manual reporting with multiple Excel sheets to automated, cloud-based systems is streamlining operations, making it easier to archive reports and ensuring quick access to information.

3. Save Time:

In the accounting department, automating Income Journal updates and bank and OTA reconciliation processes can save days of work at the end of each month and catch errors in OTA commission calculations.

4. Cut Costs:

ROH automates the invoicing and billing processes, ensuring invoices are generated promptly and accurately. Automated billing cycles help reduce delays and human errors, contributing to a more efficient AR workflow and preventing the associated costs of rectifying mistakes.  

5. Increase Cash Flow:

Automate follow-up processes to ensure timely communication with guests regarding outstanding balances. Streamline processes for quicker turnaround times and improved cash flow. Automated reminder notifications can be sent to guests for pending payments, reducing the likelihood of oversights.

6. Improve Guest Experiences:

By automating routine tasks, hospitality teams can focus on delivering exceptional guest service rather than spending excessive time on administrative duties. Automation facilitates better communication between different departments, ensuring that information flows seamlessly. This leads to improved coordination and, ultimately, a more coherent and positive experience for guests.
