Work life balance as a hotelier

Achieving a work vs. life balance while running your property

Being in a 24 hour industry like hospitality is hard work. Long and irregular hours take their toll. To achieve a healthy work life balance is extremely difficult if not virtually impossible. The best way to accomplish this is to have a simple, yet effective system, like Preno in place to combine your front and back office. Simplify tasks and create more efficient systems for yourself and your team by using some online tools.

Some of Preno’s favourites integrations are easily set up within minutes like:

Xero — simple and easy to use accounting software. Easily invoice agents and manage your payroll.

Siteminder — distribute your hotel over more 3rd party sites and effortlessly manage rates and inventory.

Mailchimp — a quick and easy way to send and manage regular newsletters. You can offer exclusive deals or offers to guests who have previously stayed and keep them informed of hotel news.

These systems are so easy to use a member of your team can manage it. In the case of Xero, permissions can be set around different users.

Preno, which is currently in development, will integrate with these great tools to allow automation of tasks and greater efficiency.

Preno is there to help you simplify administration tasks, and is there to find easier ways to simplify them, so that you can get out from behind the screen and have more time for yourself or for your guests.
