Skyware Software


 

Skyware was the first of their kind to embrace a full service software solution suite built to operate as a true SaaS (Software as a Service) within “cloud computing” technology to manage all of a property’s requirements online, eliminating the expensive hardware and network cost at the property level. Skyware can also be installed as an enterprise computer network server on site. 

Included in the core program is the online booking engine offering commission-free direct reservations through the property’s website. As an enterprise-based platform, Skyware utilizes Windows-based products and operates on an SQL database and a standard PC-system, requiring a lower initial cost. 

Designed as a guest-centric system, Skyware enhances the guest experience, improves operations and drives revenue through all marketing channels. 

Skyware is available as a stand-alone front office/housekeeping system, and offers a full suite of integrated applications including central reservations, customer relationship management (CRM), maintenance management, outlet/restaurant point of aale, sales and catering, travel agent/wholesaler management and an activity/spa scheduler. 

Since these modules all reside on a central database, Skyware is a true Internet browser-based system that can also be operated as an on-premise enterprise hospitality solution. Skyware’s flexibility in deployment allows companies to choose the best option for their needs.

Skyware is suitable for many types of hospitality properties such as hotel chains, boutique hotels, resorts, inns, motels, and hotel management companies. They are PCI Certified and ODBC Compliant. Hospitality management companies in the market for an innovative, full-service solution should be sure to review Skyware.

Value for Money

This software is nice and can make things easier and more organized. However, everything has a fee associated with it and in the end the price of everything makes it not worth it for me.

Advice to Others

Give it a try to see if it works for you and see what fees it has

Our Company has been using Skyware for several years now and have it at both of our properties. Our front desk staff likes how simple it is to use and navigate through the system. We have not experienced long down times in the past and look forward to continued business with Skyware.

The Skyware product is easy to use, learn, and teach others. While there are a couple frustrating things such as non-alphabetized menus, and tabbing orders that are not sequential, these are minor issues and can be over come.

We have been very pleased with the ability of the system and were able to take a group of untrained employees new to the hotel industry and have them functional and working in a very short amount of time.

Skyware has outstanding customer service and they have felt much more like a partner than just another vendor.

I would highly recommend their software for both small independent hotels and large chains.

Pros

User Friendly

Easy to learn the system

Price point is fair

Multiple options for in house or hosted on their servers

Company is very proactive in helping their customers

Good training and it can easily be done with the trainer remote (if you have internet access)

Ability to customize and build your own reports

Works with an Internet Browser

Multiple security groups (easy to implement)

Cons

Menu Items are hard to find at times (should be in alphabetical order)

Tabbing is not consistent (you do not always go to the next field)
