Property Management System (PMS)

A Property Management System (PMS) is a programme that allows hotels, B&Bs and hotel groups to easily do their front and back office tasks, such as managing reservations, doing check-in and check-out, room allocation, payments and collecting statistics. 

Thanks to the cloud computing these systems have evolved. A PMS will only have to have a connection to the internet in order to work. This means that servers and hard drives are no longer necessary to save information.
