Pelican System Helps Hotel Incheon Airport Manage Payment Online

Dec 16 , 2004
Hotel Incheon Airport {formerly Hotel New Airport}, a South Korean business, today enjoys a facility for reducing complex administration requirements for management of advance payment, all provided by Pelican, developer of a hotel reservation management system. This advance payment control system, a component of Pelican System's online contracting feature, largely automates the processing of advance payments and credit from travel agents and corporate clients.

The facility offers a number of user-configurable options to handle most types of advance payments, including credit-card online payment, advance deposit, prepayment, and client credit. Besides setting credit limits and pay-by dates, the facility can be configured to suggest alternate payment options. For example, an agent who has used up his advance deposit might be offered the opportunity to pay by credit card for an additional, last minute, and booking.

Detailed reports on account balances, at-a-glance overviews, and warning flags generated by the facility can greatly simplify management and control of commercial payments. This facility will keep track of payment due dates, payments received - whether by agents, corporate entities or directly from the guest - and commissions payable in the case of direct customer payment. The facility can prove particularly useful with new clients or travel agents / corporate clients, by automatically monitoring compliance with prepayment dates for initial reservations, rapidly establishing whether the client or agent will be eligible for credit.

The Incheon Airport Hotel, an institution dealing with high travel agent client traffic, no longer has to see monitoring and controlling of customer credit as a burden. 'This payment system is one important instrument in dealing with travel agent clientele. Pelican System not only eases us in reservation procedures but we also find the advance payment system handy' observes Mr Viraj Mangaldas Pai, Manager - Admin & Business Development. 'Monitoring payments from travel agents becomes less time consuming', he adds.
