The Top 10 Best Shortcuts for a Faster, Smarter, and Better Experience in Visual Matrix


Many tasks in Visual Matrix are faster than we think. Let's go over some tips:

Search in One Click

Use Search Today and the Dashboard.
Search for any reservation in-house or arriving today by phone number, room number or by name and access arrivals, departure, availability or rooms out of order directly in one click without navigating away from your current page or opening another window.

Reservations in 30 Seconds or Less

BookRes provides faster access to check availability, rates, and book a reservation step-by-step with all the necessary information, all in one screen. Using the VM ID Scanner makes the data entry even faster. Finally, Save or Check-in with the same click.


Check Outs in One Click

Check out all zero balanced folios at once and send an automatic email to the guests with Express Check outs.


Manage No-Show in One Click

Charge no-shows in one click just before running your audit. This feature changes the status of the pending arrivals to no-show, post a fee and keep them open to reinstate after audit if the guest shows up late.


Text with your Guests

Send Arrival Reminders is one click, manage guest texting or enjoy automatic responses with the Guest Texting FeatureIn addition to arrival reminders, Guest Texting also sends welcome and thank you texts when the guest checks in or out. It will text the guest when a clean room has been assigned to their reservation that their room is ready for check-in, and allows the guest to text staff special requests during their stay. 


Receive Daily Statistics by Text

Receive your daily numbers by text and/or email every night after audit in one click. You can set a user to receive night audit text and/or email alerts of the day's totals.
