LET US CLARIFY THINGS TOGETHER

Here are our most frequently asked questions.

To get started

I have never used a management system. Will I be able to use 5stelle*?

Our hospitality specialists will guide you step-by-step, not only how to use the management system, but also suggesting the best sales strategies for your hotel.

If I transfer from my current management system to 5stelle*, what data can I transfer?

We can import all your client’s contact data, but not the reservations history. We suggest printing or saving (in an Excel format) data from the last two years of your old management system.

Last time I change management system I lost hours of work. Will it be the same with 5stelle*?

No this will not happen: activating a cloud system is quick and easy. Everything is done remotely via our hospitality specialists. In a matter of days, they will activate your accommodation, help you configure it (price lists, packages, extras, invoicing, etc…) and teach you how to use the management system in the most effective way. After the first training your will never be alone: you can always count on our assistance, online and via telephone, 365 days of the year.

Can I manage more than one accommodation facility?

Of course, we designed our programme to manage more than one facility. Each facility has an ID number. To manage them all, you only require one user and password.

Why do you not have a dealer in my area? What if I require assistance?

Dealers were founded in the 80's: today they are no longer sustainable for both the dealer and client. The cloud allows everything to be executed remotely including demo, installation and assistance – with speed and savings for the hotel. Assistance is centralised, available via telephone and online. You can ask one of our specialists for help or advice, 365 days a year.

Is it possible to have a demo version of 5stelle*?

During the presentation you can our operators for any clarifications or information. After the presentation, if you would like, we will activate a demo for 15 days. With the trial you can "play around" at your leisure. If you have any further questions, you can always contact our assistance team as if you were already one of our clients.

I did not find features that interest me on the website. Does this mean they are not provided for?

If you have problems with your computer, you don not lose any information. Data from your facility is safely stored on our server. Just use 5stelle* from another device and you will be back up and running.
