Reservation Master 5
What Reservation Master customers have said:
I looked at several packages, and feature for feature, Reservation Master 5
does everything we need, and the support can't be beat. The learning curve is
low, the features are complete (with new features added continuously) and Tom
has been very good at listening to suggestions and implementing them if
I have loaded the new version! I am impressed by your immediate response to
my suggestions, however I have not had the time to look at them yet but do hope

When you compare service, features, and cost, you’ll see why Reservation Master
5 is your best value for
resort and guest management software.

statistics are available for each week and each season you define. So even if your rate structure does not vary
more than once or twice over time, you
can still define lots of 'seasons' to get more granular occupancy

units and rates by season for each unit for that year (normally
your rate sheet will have enough information)
