Hospitality Technology International (HTI), Africa’s leading developer of hospitality software for hotels and lodges, has announced the launch of a new solution for health spas. The new Spa module is fully integrated with the company’s existing PlusPoint point of sale (POS) and stock control solution.
HTI, which has been in business for more than 20 years, supplies its Apex Property Management System and PlusPoint POS and stock control solution to more than 300 medium to large hotels and resorts in 12 countries in Africa.
According to Rory Montgomery, in charge of marketing at HTI, the company’s PlusPoint solution boasts “several hundred users”, adding that the company developed the new Spa booking module after “discerning a definite vertical market”.
“With the ongoing installation of PlusPoint – and our other software solutions – we have detected a strong vertical market for our Spa solution. The new module integrates seamlessly with our point of sale solution, so we will be able to target new and existing customers,” says Montgomery.
PlusPoint POS and stock control has been greatly successful in the local hospitality market and is used extensively throughout Africa. In terms of POS and stock control functionality, PlusPoint’s friendly appearance masks its powerful management of stock levels for all outlets and stores.
Additionally, with the unique use of “picture buttons” and an all-in-one screen design, the system is extremely user friendly and configuration is simple and easily transferable between stores and outlets.
The Spa module features include:
* Configurable calendar with special dates.
* Calendar view by treatment room or consultant.
* Availability checking of treatment rooms to prevent double booking.
* User defined booking/treatment types.
* Client database with booking history.
* Five minute booking intervals.
* View by day or month.
