Maximize Your Hotel Inventory with ZEN Property Management System

January 13, 2022

A hotel’s success is largely dependent on how many rooms it can sell. Maximizing your hotel inventory is a combination of good hotel management and having an efficient inventory management system. With ZEN Property Management System (ZEN PMS), you can easily monitor, manage, and maximize each of your hotel rooms. 


Manage reservations across all channels

Distributing your hotel rooms across booking channels increases your chances of selling out your inventory. However, managing and monitoring all those rooms on different platforms can be tedious, especially if done manually. 

If you have ever experienced double-bookings, missed reservations, mix ups in cancellations and scheduling then you’re just one of the thousands of hotels that encounter this problem. The main issue with reservations management is that it’s difficult to keep track of your inventory when your reservations are coming from multiple sources. 

Most hotel room reservations usually come from direct website bookings, online travel agencies (OTA), and walk-ins. Imagine having to monitor all those listings 24/7. It would be a nightmare to do manually. That’s where ZEN Property Management System comes in. 

ZEN Property Management System seamlessly integrates with over 500 third-party hotel booking channels and collates all listings into one easy-to-manage dashboard. You can view your entire inventory from just one application. You can see real-time changes in room count, room rates, and confirmations. There’s no need to have multiple tabs open. Instantly reduce booking errors, streamline inventory management, and maximize your hotel reservations with ZEN. 


Analyze your hotel inventory data

Having a hotel property management system doesn’t just help with reservations management. You can also use the data gathered to make strategic plans to maximize revenue per available room (REVPar) and increase overall occupancy. 


Improve your marketing strategy

Because ZEN Property Management System gathers all your room listings, you can identify which order source provides you with the most sales. Inversely, you can also find out which channels might not be worth investing in. 

Knowing where your sales are coming from can help you tweak your marketing budget. Allocate more resources to channels that bring in more sales and find ways to help least productive platforms. 


Identify booking  trends and patterns

You can also use data from the system to identify booking patterns. Perhaps customers are more amenable to booking at certain times or days of the week? Introduce a flash sale during these times.

Or maybe peak season is when your most expensive rooms sell just as fast as the most affordable ones. Increase prices to maximize REVPar. By analyzing your inventory data, you can give you so much insight you would normally miss. 


Increase hotel staff efficiency

Most hoteliers forget the crucial fact that their hotel staff has a hand in maximizing their inventory. Hotel inventory management and analysis isn’t their only responsibility. Room turnover is also affected by how hotel employees process, bill, and prepare each guest room. 

ZEN Property Management System has a built-in capability that allows users to manage front desk operations like faster check-ins, room allocations, and night audits. You can also work on billings, recurring payments, and scheduling to automate daily tasks. 


Having a hotel software that improves employee performance helps you to increase productivity and revenue with a small investment. Transferring daily business tasks to an automated system frees up your team to focus on improving guest experiences and customer satisfaction. With an efficient management team and happy guests, increased room sales and faster turnover are well within your grasp.
