Bill to room made easy with Lightspeed Kounta POS and Preno

Opening a restaurant, bar, or retail store on your property shouldn’t mean you have to do more admin.  Using smart tools can free up valuable time and make the operational side so much easier to manage.

This is where Lightspeed Kounta POS and Preno can help. Lightspeed Kounta POS is a powerful point-of-sale system that simplifies the restaurant and guest experience. Choosing Preno with Lightspeed Kounta POS can help prepare you for your busy months. Having a workflow for both your front-and-back of house starts with a simple system that’s powerful and scalable to help you deliver an exceptional guest experience.

Why is a point of sale system so important for an accommodation provider to have? Running a successful property, time is of the essence, and smart tools help save time while the whole property is managed more effectively. Combining a property management system (PMS) with a point-of-sale (POS) will replace manual tasks and eliminate simple mistakes during transactions. POS helps streamlines operations, inventory, transactions, food and extra charges per room.

For accommodation providers and hoteliers ‘bill to room’ charges will automatically be sent to the guest’s booking as an extra in Preno and remove the complexity of billing each customer’s room. Lightspeed Kounta POS seamlessly integrates with Preno to give you real-time data, based in the cloud, with access 24/7. At Preno we absolutely love helping providers and hoteliers run smarter businesses.

What is bill to room?

Bill to room allows guests to dine first and pay later. This means that when your guests dine at your onsite restaurant, they can settle their meal at checkout along with any other room payments.
