Maestro PMS launched a payment portal module that connects guests online with a property to quickly make payments against their upcoming reservations.
The new system also saves the property time and reduces collection fees by automatically emailing deposit reminders. Maestro offers web browser and windows access in either deployment for independent hotels, luxury resorts, conference centers and multiproperty groups.
“Maestro’s new payment portal is ideal for guests who want the flexibility to self-serve their advance deposit payments,” Maestro PMS President Warren Dehan said in a statement. “Our payment portal module lets guests make payments anytime from any device without giving their credit card number over the phone. The system uses a secure website that is fully integrated in Maestro property software so advance deposits are posted real time.”
The module lets a hotel automatically email payment reminders with a link to the payment portal at predetermined intervals to free the accounting staff for other duties. Maestro’s payment portal website is branded with the property software’s look and feel and is fully secure for credit card payments.
“The module is flexible to adapt to any property’s billing policies for single or multiple advance deposit payments,” Dehan said. “In the future, the payment portal will be available for use by condo properties, club member payments and corporate contract groups.”
