At the hart of the PMS is the Rates & Availability Calendar (R&A). On this calendar the actual pricing and availability is managed and from here send to all channels.
Being it the hart, is has a fast amount of options in order to enable users to convert the strategy to daily operation.
The R&A screen is divided in multiple parts:
- the Filter
- the Left part is a filter, that toggles on and off the desired channels, rate plans, room types and/or restrictions
- Date picker
- on the top is a date range, that opens when clicked on. The user has full freedom to select the desired date (range)
- Main Calendar
- Right screen is the main calendar and shows, based on the set date (range) and filters, the data. Changes are made directly in the calendar
- bulk update opens a new window where changes can be made for a longer period of time, with multiple selections.
- Recalculate will go over all prices for the selected date (range) and recalculate them, where the Master Rate is the basis.
