helpdesk: 365 days a year
from 8:00am to 8:00pm
Our property is a 4 Star Superior Boutique Hotel in Florence with 58 rooms, 2 Bars with kitchen service, a large wellness centre and two meeting rooms. We have chosen Ericsoft Suite 4° as our PMS with integrated spa reservation functionalities and meeting rooms management.
In my professional career I have always worked with Ericsoft, I have personally handled the implementation of the PMS in our properties in Armenian and our company has now been using it for over 12 years.
Is a very intuitive hotel property management software, flexible and adaptable to each hotel’s specific needs.
The integrated Channel Manager is connected with major OTAs and allows us to check real time availability and have price synchronization on all sales channels. Therefore, when I came back to Italy for the opening of Palazzo Castri, I felt safe in choosing an Ericsoft software product.
I would recommend Ericsoft based on my experience and also because when using Ericsoft you are always supported by a team of technicians ready to help you.
I've been adapting Revenue Management strategies in an accurate and systematic way since 2010, so I needed precise statistics. I met Gian Marco Montanari, Ericsoft Account Manager in Rome, at the Revenue Management forum and thanks to him I started my personal training on Revenue management techniques to be able to sell my rooms at rates that allow to increase profits.
After working with multiple software, I realized that I needed a more specific product, tailored for my needs, this is why I choose Ericsoft.
From the beginning I felt the great customer care of the Ericsoft team and their ability to listen to my needs: together with technicians and thanks to their professionalism, we have made many changes on reports and statistics, to customize the PMS in order to fit my needs.
Suite 4° is a very dynamic system, and above all, combines numbers, statistics and operations: key elements to manage my property. Another aspect that makes a key difference is certainly the reliability of Ericsoft company and staff, which is very important to me.
The CRM coupled with the wide range of strategies available the Ericsoft all-in-one PMS, has enabled us to achieve extraordinary sales results. In the last year, over 60 % of online booking have arrived through our direct reservation system, thanks to the Ericsoft Booking Engine.
I wonder how this has been possible, since I did not make any heavy investments in google pay per click campaigns or Facebook Ads. The only explanation lies in the automatic marketing activities enacted by the PMS. Based on quotation requests, reservations, arrivals, departures and other information present in the system, tailored automatic email communications are activated according to guests’ needs. This creates a direct connection between the hotel and its guests during their entire travel experience, which in turn leads to incredible sales results.
All of the above, over the years, have resulted in a constant increase in direct reservations and customer loyalty. Without a complete PMS like Ericsoft, human resources alone, would not have been able to achieve such a success.
The Ericsoft all-in-one solution, has helped us disintermediate online sales notably, helping us increase direct reservations in an exponential way, reaching over 20 % online bookings through our website.
These results have been obtained without spending 1 € on Google and Facebook advertising and above all, without any commissions on reservations.
We have been using Ericsoft for many years: it is not just a PMS, but a valuable tool that helps us manage our property every day.
PMS, Channel Manager, Booking Engine and CRM (newsletter\mailing) combined in one platform, have allowed us to standardize and simplify strategies that were too complicated to apply before.
In our properties we use Hotel 4°, the Ericsoft all-in-one solution, with the innovative Revenue Management module, which allows us to apply pricing strategies through the automatic update of dynamic rates, it’s incredible.
I am the Sales Manager of Hotel Hiberia and Virgilio Hotel. Before introducing Ericsoft, I used to stay in the office until late and when I left, I always had the feeling that I would have found a disaster the following morning, such as rooms sold at incredibly low prices on days where demand had suddenly increased.
Now I am finally free from this concern and the results in terms of revenue increase can be tangibly measured. I know that Ericsoft is currently working on new features especially in relation to sales strategies, I am excited to try them all!
Definitely the best software investment our group has ever made.
A few years ago, I decided to leave my old PMS to enter the Ericsoft world with Hotel 4°.
The Booking Engine and the Channel Manager have been very important for the growth of my properties: results obtained from sales optimisation and room rates have been tangible from the very beginning. Not having to thinking about portal updates or the risk of being overbooked allows me to sleep deeply.
In addition, the fact that PMS and online availability are based on real occupancy has allowed me to sell more rooms. The Booking Engine is very performing, but in my opinion the most important aspect is the direct connection with the PMS itself.
Honestly, I have to say that a 365 days helpdesk is one of the main factors that made me choose Ericsoft. During the initial configuration, technicians have been able to satisfy my managerial needs according to the specifications I provided in the pre-installation phase. I liked the reactivity of the support received.

When I discovered that Ericsoft had all necessary tools integrated into one single system, deciding to change all applications currently in use, such as a PMS that I had been using for over 20 years, a well-tested Channel Manager and an efficient CRM system, has not been particularly difficult.
For example, previously, we had to access multiple platforms to sell our rooms on online portals, one for each property, now instead, with the Ericsoft Channel Manager, we just use one single tool.
The CRM allows us to manage our customers better, easily handling all emails exchanged prior to their arrival and after their departure. Post-departure emails are extremely important because they allow us to analyse the satisfaction level of our customers and channel their reviews to portals which are most important for us, giving priority to Tripadvisor rather than trivago, for example. With the CRM, we can also profile our customers according to various factors, such as nationality or age and create targeted ad hoc marketing campaigns.
I fell in love with hotel 4 for its dynamicity: I can now use a single PMS for all my properties, facilitating back office activities and significantly lowering the risk of overbooking, thanks to real time updates on all portals.
The Revenue Management Module gives us the opportunity to create occupancy-based rules for price variations, what more to say... the greater the demand, the more the value of the room grows.
From the very beginning, the graphic interface of the booking engine seemed promising from a conversion standpoint. Indeed, it now generates nearly 30 % of our direct bookings and thanks to the possibility of creating secret offers, it still allows us to remain in parity with OTA rates.
I would recommend Ericsoft to other hoteliers because it notably simplifies the management of my properties and allows me to organize myself better and streamline my work.
