Using guest profiles in Lodgical Solution Enterprise

If your property has many return guests, guest profiles are a great way to keep those guests’ information on file, so you don’t have to re-enter it with each new stay.

We think having that information available can make a big difference for you and your guests. In particular, it can allow you to prepare for your returning guests’ stays and cater to their preferences. For your guests, that can mean finding their room exactly as they expect it when they return to your property.

Here is some information on how to create guest profiles, and how to clean up guest profiles if you already use them.
