Our posting modes have 4 different options in which you can deal with how the product produces the charge.
The Simple posting mode will allow you to post the product on the day of arrival, all resident days or the day of check out.
|This posting mode will typically be used for every day products such as breakfast.|
The Custom posting mode allows a posting schedule to be set based on the stay.
If you are selling a 4-night rate that allows dinner on the first and third nights then tick boxes 1 and 3.
Rolling Allowance for X Days
Rolling posting mode is for an allowance that can be used on any day of the stay.
Allowance per Stay
Per Stay posting mode is for an allowance that can be used over the entire stay.
Shift Allowances can be set up within Rezlynx to recognise the inclusive element of your rates as example a guest is staying on a dinner, bed and breakfast package
You have 4 shifts available, which are the following:
4) Night Food
Please select the relevant shift for your product
The shift allowance is the amount the Guest can spent, i.e. £25.00 dinner
Unused Shift Allowance Code
Where do you want the revenue to fall if the allowance is unused?
Restricted Analysis Code
What Analysis Codes are restricted during this shift
For Example… Bar Food/ Rest Food etc, this means the guest can either take the allowance in the Restaurant or the Bar/Lounge
If the Analysis code is not in the list the charge will produce on the guest’s bill.
Product Loss Code
Product Loss allows you to track the difference between the posted amount and the price of the Product when the posted amount is GREATER than the Product value but less than the Product allowance.
For Example… Product price is £20.00; the shift allowance for the Product is £30
The internal breakdown shows the £30 dinner charge from EPOS.
£20 offset against the Product value
£10 recorded as Product Loss (reporting to its own analysis code as defined on the Product set up)
If the Product value and the Shift Allowance were set the same amount then no Product Loss would be recorded.
Any amounts above the Shift Allowance value would posted onto the guest bill.
To restrict the use of the Analysis codes for Product Loss and Unused Shift Allowance a new checkbox ‘System Use’ has been included for Analysis code set up.
|If an Analysis code is flagged as ‘System Use’, it will not be available for manual postings in Rezlynx or third party interfaces. It will be available in drop downs for reports and configuration. After the first use of a System Use Analysis code changes to the configuration will not be possible.|
