					about lodge-ical's modules...

Reservation Cloning:

Clients who are using this module have a high repeat business percentage. Lodge-ical allows you
to quickly create a new reservation based upon an existing reservation. When the Jones leave in
August and want to rebook for next year, you will simply press a button and "clone" all or some of
the reservation components (i.e., room assignments, rates, guest links, activities, etc...).

Reservation Quotes:

        This module is designed for Lodge-ical clients who work with corporations and large
         groups who are interested in a price estimate prior to the actual booking. The
         components include the following:
        One form allows you to view and manage all of your outstanding quotes. A new quote
         consists of a client's name, assumed arrival and departure dates, and the appropriate
         reservation costs. Activities can also be entered to show the contact person a suggested
         itinerary (it can include both meals and activities).
        A quote confirmation including both the pricing and suggested itinerary to send to the
         prospect. Once the quote is confirmed you can easily convert the quote to a reservation.
        If the quote is rejected, you can cancel the quote.
        The following quote is direct from the client describing his reason for the custom
         requirement: "Prior to this module, I used to prepare all of our quotes using another
         system. Once the quote was confirmed, then I would go into Lodge-ical and enter the
         reservation. The Reservation Quote module has provided me the following advantages:
         a) I do not have to rely on another system, b) the quote confirmation that I send is
         consistent with other Lodge-ical correspondence, c) once I confirm a quote I just have to
         press one button and it becomes a confirmed reservation, and d) the module is very easy
         to work with." -Kim Cannon, Greystone Castle.

      The following quote is direct from the client describing his reason for the custom
       requirement: "The Food and Beverage portion of your guest ranch is a very important
       cost/revenue producing center. This is one area that can be monitored, it can be
       improved and it can make or break your season. Lodge-ical helped us create a Food and
       Beverage module that allowed us to track "sales" in the dining room and to utilize proper
       food cost analysis that created a very clear picture of what it cost to feed each guest as
       well as each crew member. With very little time spent entering in inventory and
       guest/crew meal numbers you can have a report which will show you how your kitchen is
       doing. The Food and Beverage module is not a "fixed" cost. You can control it and you
       can find a way to make it work for your operation. Kristin and Paul at Lodge-ical are easy
       to work with, great at customer service and even better at understanding the needs of our
       operation. This F&B module is just another great tool in helping you to provide your
       guests with the best service available." -Doug Hare, Red Rock Ranch
