SkyTouch Hotel OS Software


 

SkyTouch Hotel OS is a cloud-based hotel management solution designed for hotels of all sizes. It offers property management, rate management and distribution functionalities within a suite.

SkyTouch Hotel OS features housekeeping management, which allows users to schedule housekeeping staff using the administration console. Once an assigned task is completed, the staff can update the status using their mobile app.

SkyTouch Hotel OS also features distribution management, which allows users to manage hotel bookings on different online channels, such as Internet Booking Engine (IBE), online travel agencies (OTA) and global distribution systems (GDS). When a room is booked on any of the channels, the calendar is updated in real time, which reduces the risk of overbookings.

SkyTouch Hotel OS offers integration with different business solutions such as Google Calendar, WordPress, PayPal and Drupal. The vendor provides 24/7 online support to customers.

Worst PMS system

Value for Money

Pros

There are only two positive things about this PMS system.
1. This is a web based system there can be accessed from anywhere.
2. 24/7 US based phone support.

Cons

The list on cons is long:
1.Frequent crashes and updates that does not add any useful features to the system.
2.Long list of known issues but no intentions of ever fixing these issues.
3.This system is primarily used by Choice hotels so the design and features of this PMS is geared toward choice hotels.It is not a good system for independent hotels.
4.Only few integrations and interfaces to 3rd party platforms.
5.Over bookings happens frequently and when you call them about the over bookings you are told that they will run the so called Delta Report but no body cares to follow up after that.

None that I can think of. I would really add something if I thought that this system had anything of value.

Cons

To many to list. Basically this is a strong arm move for the Choice Hotels to force a totally useless system onto their franchisees.

I have worked at the hotel for 7 years and we have used 5 different systems, and nothing compares to skytouch! Its fast, accurate and user friendly!

Cons

I wish the prepaid reservations would auto put in address of guest. When we go to check prepaid guest's in it always sends us a user error and we have to go clear back into the reservation and basically remake it all.

Pros

It is relatively quick to check in clients . It configures most information and taxes for you as long as it is given proper information . For the most part it efficiently tracks and records most aspects of our business .

Cons

I think SkyTouch needs to simplify No Show reservations that become next day arrivals . The transfer of financial balance should not be anything other than reinstating if need be . It Is a process that you must duplicate then turn into cash transaction etc.

Posting credit balances in the direct bill accounts is not very easily done. Some of the features have to many steps involved in them. It is not easy to find some of things I need right away or I can't access them without calling sky touch for help. As the General Manager I would think I would be able to a bit more control over certain aspects and function of the system.

None yet. As we are still overcoming a lot of hurdles. We are still working on issues. I hope this will be better from the old system we have.

Pros

You have a lot of reports to choose from and detailed. And the 24 hour customer service. there is also a help section if you need it. k

Cons

had problems wherein some reservations did not communicate with skytouch. It wasn't solve until almost a month. Some credit card information did not migrate to the skytouch. A lot of problems

Cloud based has been great also two way integration with siteminder has been a great time saver.

Pros

I enjoy the ease of use and that it is cloud based, it is colorful and attractive for new staff, we have two way integration with Site Minder and this has saved a lot of time and energy.

Cons

There are many things that need to be fixed. The reports for simple marketing purposes do not work at all, they do not pull any data from the simple item in a reservation such as country. The letters to guests cannot be adjusted which is crazy to me. Also there are so many things that they say they know about and they will be changing and it does not seem like anything will change.

The look of it... Some of the features I think it are could once you find them. It seems as though we have lots of reports but yet many are not needed. I would like to sit with your develop team sometime.

Cons

That the functionality when it comes to Goups and Direct Billing, accounts receivable really need ALOT of work...your software is behind others and doesn't seem to be improving. The people designing it clearly have never worked in hotel. You should get some help so the developmental team listens to the client or even your techs!!

generally great unless the customer service agent you get is jenny in which case, please see previous review as I don't have time this again. The review I provided last week got me absolutely nowhere after being treated the way I was

Cons

Since my last review was the only negative review I have ever posted, No one has EVER bothered to respond to me, so why on earth would I bother ever leaving another review, they obvious don't get read, nor does anyone care enough about the end user or their complaint.

It is the most critical technology we use to manage our hotel.

Pros

The integration with third part sites (OTA's) such as booking.com, Expedia, etc. is very seamless and error free.

Cons

There are some minor maintenance periods. I had to really stretch to come up with anything negative as we are notified in advance about any scheduled maintenance and the maintenance is infrequent.

Able to access from any where or any device. Doesn't have a server everything is cloud base which is nice.

Pros

Easy to use. Set up was easy and the cost was well worth it. Community board is a nice feature. Tape chart is nice to use.

Cons

Rate Management Part. Very hard to set certain rates for groups or blocks. Always cleaning out your cookies/browser. Always doing maintenance. Makes you save stuff a zillion times before continuing.

Pros

I liked that it was a cloud based software, so that I could remotely manage multiple properties from my phone or laptop. During the sales process, I was impressed with its UI because out of most of the other products at this price point, this looked the most current and modern, comparable to other tech interfaces. It seemed it would be the most flexible for accommodating our needs and being flexible, so that if we had a sudden influx of guests, we could have another agent use a tablet to check guests in.

Cons

My BIGGEST problem with this system was that this system would authorize an unknown amount of money on a guest's card that WE did not set. Guests would pay for their stay, but an extra amount would also be withheld on their card, that we did not authorize. We were blind to the amount and the settings, and nobody could figure out nor fix the problem. During the sales process, we were told that with this product, we would never have to worry about being offline, because even if our Internet or power went out, it would save and give us access to our reservation information and re-sync whenever the internet or power came back on. There are frequent outages where the system is inaccessible because of an update to their system. Not only that, there is absolutely NO UX design in mind in their product. In terms of navigation, you need to pull up multiple tabs to achieve one objective, even though a basic UX designer could and would design a better process. We thought housekeeping would be easier with Skytouch. However it requires navigating through two different processes in order to produce a single list, and then exiting out of everything to generate a report. We had MANY other issues, that we tried to resolve. We have wasted so much time and money on implementing and using this software, I regret ever using this product. I should have run during the sales process, when they spent more time talking down their competitors rather than talking up their product.
