What makes apaleo different?

API first

Property Management Systems tend to start with their PMS, then build the connectivity layer (aka, the APIs) afterwards. The new approach, which is unique to apaleo, turns things upside down. It starts with the API, then the PMS is built on top of it.

A supermarket for the apps you need

And that means every single piece of data in the PMS is completely available, accessible and integrate-able. Automatic interfacing to the features you need to run and grow your business is a new reality. Just look at our Store to see the range of applications that integrate seamlessly.

But those essential basics are not forgotten

As with most things in business you need to get the basics right. Sounds boring – but it’s essential. And that’s why for hotel chains of all shapes and sizes apaleo covers the way to manage inventory and reservations and the way to store and adjust rates flawlessly, and also comes with a comprehensive tool for accounting and simple invoicing.

And it’s secure

The system is totally PCI compliant and ensures that all your data is secure so that you will never have to worry about data leakage or privacy concerns.

 

The Core Functionality

INVENTORY

Setup and manage your inventory the way you want with flexible inventory management that allows you to create inventory of all shapes and sizes (rooms, parking spaces, etc.). To better organize inventory, you can attach and sort by attributes that matter for you (eg. floor number, bed types, waterfront view).

RESERVATIONS

Reservations booked from all distribution channels will automatically land in apaleo. Get a clear overview of reservations and assign rooms, add services, or filter by category and room attributes with ease. With one single login, brands can view and create reservations across all their properties, and apaleo is set up to handle reservations for individual guests, group blocks, corporate travel and more.

RATES

Set up, adjust, and add new rate plans and policies in minutes, and enjoy tons of freedom to create corporate rate plans, derived rate plans, special packages, restrictions for a given period of time, surcharges for additional occupancy or services, special rates for children, and more.

ACCOUNTING/INVOICING

VAT and bank account details come ready to use, but you are free to configure sub-accounts, city tax, or visitor’s tax. Bookings are carried out in real time with double-entry bookkeeping and in compliance with legal regulations. Invoices are available in multiple languages, and logos, texts, etc. are all customizable.

  • Payments made easy

We try and keep it simple. ‘apaleo Payment’ gives you complete freedom. Automate the collection of payments with the click of a button or set up self check-in kiosks that will trigger payments automatically. Plus, configure your company structure and link merchant accounts by property, brand or country so that you can quickly get an overview of all transactions and understand where revenue is coming from. Need more details? No problem! Drill down to the reservation level to reconcile payments or manage disputes.

And don’t forget – for anything else, our app store is only a click away…

Maybe this is where the fun begins – we have an entire store of best of breed tools to help you run and grow your business, from channel managers to mobile check-in to point of sale to CRM and everything in between. It is like a superstore of hotel technology. And best of all, it all connects to your apaleo property management system with the click of a button. Select what you want, test new things, and drop what you don’t need. The choice is yours. If anything’s missing or you have developed a new app you want to interface, just let us know.
