Overview


The hotel module refers to a “Cattery”, “Kennel”, or “Equine Paddock” boarding system where animals are booked for a period of time similar to a hotel, except with many additional features for the purpose.


Highly Configurable


Users can define several options to change the look and feel as well as some rule sets for a fully configurable set up. Some options are as follows:
  • Set Opening and Closing Times
  • Set Checkout Time (for billing)
  • Set option for half day pickups
  • Multi-Branch option to allow view/booking of another branch’s rooms

Forms & Info


A number of forms can be configured using the in-built word-processor with full mail-merged variables.

Notes can also be entered against the booking to indicate special instructions such as treatment and dietary requirements.
  • Multiple User defined forms for printing
