    Information

    The Franchise feature provides advanced property grouping, management and reporting options for property segmentation within a single RMS database.

    Franchise can be used to manage an Enterprise database where all or some of the properties belong to a Franchise Group.

    Franchise Groups can be granted access to a Company, Guest or Travel Agent to simplify managing Franchise contracts, memberships or negotiated rates.



    Franchise Groups only have access to the data that relates to their Franchise Group.



    A Property can be assigned a Property Grouping and a Franchise Group to create flexibility in setup, reporting and management options.

    Users can be associated to a particular Franchise Group and can only be assigned access to properties within their associated group.



    Users will require Security Profile access to use this feature.
