Flywire shared the case study of AYA Niseko, our PMS + TRUST user

Flywire shared the case study of AYA Niseko, our PMS + TRUST user

Flywire, an online payment system popular among the RoomBoss users, shared a case study with AYA Niseko. Aya Niseko is a luxury ski-in ski-out hotel located at the heart of Hirafu area in Niseko, and the 90% of its guests during the winter seasons are from overseas. Payments from international guests can often result in high fees for both the resort and the guests.

Flywire was a perfect solution for AYA Niseko which was looking for a payment option that would reduce transaction costs while providing a simple and secure payment experience for their guests. RoomBoss is also mentioned in the article as AYA Niseko’s PMS and online booking engine provider in the article. Please visit Flywire case study HERE to learn more.

“YATSUGATAKE” A New Location Available in the System

“YATSUGATAKE” A New Location Available in the System

Yatsugatake is located across Nagano and Yamanashi prefectures in Japan. Yatsugatake, which means “eight peaks” in Japanese, is a volcanic chain which stretches across 25 km from north to south with the peaks of 2,500m or higher above sea level. The expansive area has long fascinated Japanese tourists and alpinists as both an incredible highland hot spring resort, as well as a mountaineering and rock climbing mecca.

Still a hidden gem in the international market, Yatsugatake is close to Nozawa Onsen which is popular among the international travelers, with its cold but sunny winter weather allowing the resorts to create perfectly groomed ski slopes ideal for ski lessons, and offering many attractive nearby destinations where you can delve into the history of Japan, such as Suwa Taisha Shrine.

[TRUST] New Flexibility in Managing Housekeeping Costs + More Powerful Options for Building Charge Models based on Guest Age Category

[TRUST] New Flexibility in Managing Housekeeping Costs + More Powerful Options for Building Charge Models based on Guest Age Category

Introducing an exciting addition to our Trust Accounting module that empowers you to exercise greater control over housekeeping charges. Now you have the flexibility to set specific housekeeping charges for each night of the stay directly within the system. This means you can automatically charge fees, for example for guest consumable items, to a designated account. A more tailored and efficient method for your team to manage housekeeping costs.

In addition, we developed a feature to model trust accounting charges, such as daily breakfast revenues to pass to management, based on the age category of guests. Previously charges were based on the number of guests, whereas now you can specify different charges for adults, children and infants.
