Geisel Privathotels boosts efficiency with Oracle Hospitality

Geisel Privathotels implements new hospitality concepts, increases sales, and saves time and resources with Oracle Hospitality

Geisel Privathotels is comprised of four hotels—soon to be five—ranging from 5-star luxury property to hybrid hotel with suites for business travelers and affordable rates for backpackers. The Group’s concept is rounded off with four restaurants—from international Michelin-star cuisine to street food style—and a retail wine gallery. Price and quality-conscious guests feel as much at home as do discerning business travelers and international guests with the highest expectations. These expectations can only be met with a powerful software suite to manage and provision the group’s various services.

Business travelers and tourists acknowledge Geisel Privathotels as a traditional Munich family-run business with modern concepts and first-class service. Oracle Hospitality Suite is the only solution available in the market that offers the performance we require without any compromises.

Business challenges

  • Connect newly opened hotels and restaurants with varying requirements to Oracle Hospitality Suite8, which has been used for years, to efficiently control workflow, provide management with detailed overviews, and guarantee guests a first-class customer experience
  • Utilize synergies and provide personalized service to regular guests at all establishments by enabling smooth data exchange between all corporate divisions
  • Fulfill special requirements, such as the complete and individual processing of vouchers, the separate renting of individual beds in multi-bed rooms, and changing guest requirements, through the hotel software
  • Gain the ability to produce detailed reports about individual corporate divisions and the company as a whole to support strategic planning and decision making
  • Ensure system expansions and the addition of new corporate divisions are possible at any time without impairing the customer experience or interrupting daily business activities

Several years ago, Geisel Privathotels decided that it favored Oracle as the market’s leading hotel management software provider. Oracle Hospitality Suite8 offers a vast range of functions, connects different corporate divisions, is flexible, and is easy to use. The system is a profitable investment in the future of the company.

  • Used Oracle Hospitality Suite8 in all Geisel Privathotels to provide management with detailed data and consolidated reports, enabling optimized and more efficient decision making
  • Gained the ability to support different hotels and restaurants—from luxury resort to hostel concept and from Michelin-star restaurant to street food—with a single software solution thanks to the flexibility and great functional scope of Oracle Hospitality Suite8
  • Stored all data in a central database so information from the hotels and restaurants is accessible through both the hotel management and restaurant management modules—providing the entire company with a comprehensive overview of guests’ preferences and wishes in real time.
  • Guaranteed perfect service with optimal operation and procurement costs by controlling and steering all inventory management with Oracle Hospitality Materials Control Standard
  • Doubled the speed of the reservation process by automatically dispatching booking confirmations to guests through Oracle Hospitality Suite8 Property Management, saving time for the employees, ensuring that guests receive their booking confirmations immediately, and considerably reducing the number of aborted bookings
  • Automated the processing of vouchers—from incoming inquiries to posting—with the Oracle Hospitality Suite8 Property Gift Certificate and Voucher module, thereby reducing voucher processing time by more than 60% and significantly increasing voucher sales
  • Gained the ability to add new properties and new modules at any time thanks to the flexible, modular structure of Oracle Hospitality Suite8, avoiding any system disruptions and ensuring the guests’ customer experience
  • Benefitted from the performance and intuitive operation of Oracle Hospitality Suite8, greatly reducing the outlay for training because the majority of newly hired employees already learned how to use the software during their vocational training or with another employer
  • Simplified and accelerated the creation of invoices, such as automatically printing invoices with the names and addresses of the respective guests or companies, or enabling guests to add charges from any Geisel restaurant to their room invoices—even if that restaurant does not belong to their particular Geisel hotel
  • Anticipated the usage of Oracle Hospitality Suite8 for bed management at the new hotel SCHWABINGER WAHRHEIT, which will allow the company to handle both the hotel’s business suites as well as the renting of individual beds and bunks in multi-bed rooms through one system
