Reservations and Occupancies – Essential Knowledge

"Take it easy, and remember, 'Easy is Right.'" - Rajneesh

Managing reservations and occupancy is critical to the marina and space management business.

Whether you are making a reservation for someone to stay in one of your wet slips a week from now or checking someone into a slip right now, you still need to verify you have available space. That is the common functionality between a reservation and checking someone in immediately.

Let's look at the steps your staff would take to make a reservation for a customer for next month versus checking someone into a slip today.

Scenario 1: Make a reservation for next month.

Step 1: Check for availability

Enter the reservation dates, rental type (wet slip, dry storage, etc.), vessel and utility parameters, type of reservation (transient, recurring, seasonal), customer information, etc.

Step 2: Available spaces will appear on the screen.

Step 3: Select the space for the reservation.

Step 4: Summary confirmation and cost of the reservation is displayed on the screen. When the reservation is saved, an email and/or text is sent to the customer.

Scenario 2: Check a new customer who does not have a previous reservation into a space today.

The system will first check for availability, the same way you checked for availability to make a reservation in Scenario 1 above. So, you would repeat steps 1 – 4 above. When you reach step 4, you can immediately check someone into the space if the reservation date is today.

As you can see, the first steps for both scenarios above are exactly the same, which is why MARINAGO Office streamlined and combined both processes under Reservations.
