Accurate Inclusive Tax Rates Pushed from eZee FD PMS to eZee Centrix

When pushing the rates inclusive from PMS, the system was taking the pushed rates as Base Rates and on which it was applying tax from eZee Centrix. As a result, the rate value was showing, which is wrong.

We find out the cause, which is taken care of and fixed in this Service Pack.

Somehow, when guest was cancelling the booking and it was reflecting in the system, the extra charge belonging to that booking was not getting voided with cancellation. It was happening only when that downloaded booking had an assigned room. We have fixed this issue.

Adult and child rates are getting increased

Hotels using Linear Rates will be able to update their rates from eZee FrontDesk Configuration.

There was an issue in the saving process previously, such that when user clicked on the “Save” button previously with the Inclusive Rate Check box rate, related tax was getting recalculated and getting added in the base rate for extra adult and extra child on every click.

Your cashiers can fill in guest information from the settlement screen itself in Takeaway operation mode.

Previously this option was only available at the order start screen and the ordering screen.

Auto log off for Multi-user mode

We have added one more functionality to perform smooth operations in case of the shared terminals.

With this option, your waiters can use a shared machine to take orders. Once they login into the system, the system redirects to their preferred operation screen like Dine-In, Take-Away or Room-Service.  Once they complete the order operation, the system will log off automatically.
