Kommentare: It is very easy to manage external channels like booking and our home website.
Gives a lot of answers to questions you might have via reports.
Would have liked to add/change a few things

Vorteile: It pretty much covers everything, I would have added a few things, change some things, but mostly I really enjoy using it.
I'm incharge of external channels as well and Optima makes everything easier.

Nachteile: There are a few shortcomings, mostly for group reservations, I wish that somebody would have asked users what you can add to the program, based on field users.

Dear David,

Thank you very much for your review and warm feedback.
Over the past few years, Silverbyte had made a lot of new developments.

Currently, Silverbyte has a solution for every hospitality type. Over the years, Cloud systems were developed: the Selfie- PMS for 1-10 rooms size (mostly use by one-room apartment owners, or by Zimmer owners), and the Cloud Optima (also known as Optima 2020) for small-sized hotels, vacation rentals, and boutique hotels.
If your interested in more details, you can leave your details here:http://silverbyte.co.il/%d7%a6%d7%95%d7%a8-%d7%a7%d7%a9%d7%a8/ and our sales team will return to you with more information about our new Cloud-based products.
thanks
Silverbyte team.

Used a few of PMS softwares but Optima is the best for me.

Kommentare: I use this software on a daily basis and I find it very easy. The development of new features is also based on customer feedback so from time to time you get some new great feature available. The customer support is mostly very helpful and knowledgeable.

Vorteile: The long list of available reports allow great in-depth look in to your data. Customer support is mostly very helpful and followups are made to ensure that all is working fine. The GOC channel manager allows a smooth connectivity to most of the sales channels including Agents.
The availability and the tapechart screens have good functionality.

Nachteile: There is little flexibility in terms of the reports, you can't compose a report but only use the predefined ones.
Customer support is available during the businees week but in the evening or on weekends the help line is only for emergency.

Kommentare: Very good program, need time to understand how all functions are working

Vorteile: This program is very useful for big hotels, allowed to connect the hotel with all online reservation systems, like booking, agoda, expedia, hrs and so on and to recieved all reservations directly to the system, to change the prices or to close sale in all reservation systems by one click.

Nachteile: The program is less suitable for small hotels and also expensive for small hotels till 15-20 rooms totally, the small holels do not need so much functions and may find other programs. May be in future they will made limit and cheaper version for small hotels

Vorteile: The only PMS that gives full coverage of both hospitality view and accounting. Also full integration with CC providers.

Nachteile: The fact that the local currency threw booking.com can not be automated threw the us$ rateplane.

Antwort des Softwareanbieters

von Silverbyte Systems an 22.10.2019

Dear Golan,

thank you very much for taking the time to write a review about Optima PMS.
We are happy to see that the Optima PMS meets your needs.
Regarding your comment on Booking.com and the currency exchange restriction: The restriction to send prices to Booking.com in local currency only (Shekels in Israel) is coming from Booking.com's end.
A few years ago, Booking.com changed its policy, so each hotel should send the rates according to its local currency. For example: in Russia, hotels send prices to Booking.com in Rubel only; in the Philippines, hotels send rates to Booking.com in Philippine pesos only.
Thank you for being our valued customer and cheers to more years of collaboration and partnership.

Shocking customer support. No support available from Thursday afternoon until Sunday. It takes ages to get someone to start working on issues. In case you would like to add external products (Revinate etc) Silverbite wants to charge insane rates for installation.

Dear Mrs Eileen Lim,
thank you for your feedback. We are very sorry to hear your experience with Optima and that it has limited features. The other way around, as you can see in the other reviews here, and also according to our other customers' reviews in other platforms.

As Optima line of products is certificated for TAX declarations and stands along with Singapore law, we are a bit surprised for your mention of invoices. Perhaps there's some lack of knowledge? Anyhow, it is very important for us that our customers will be happy, dynamic, flexible and satisfied when using Optima products. We will have our support team contact you for further understanding of this matter.

Thanks,
Silverbyte Team
