Bill room, telephone and Internet charges
On departure, HSC Entry presents you with the charges for room, phone calls and high speed Internet access. You can move items from one account to another if necessary. Upon check out, account statements and bills can be prepared quickly, efficiently, and accurately ensuring a positive experience for your guests. You can easily prepare and maintain a template with Microsoft® Word®. HSC Entry uses this template for printing room bills including high speed Internet access and telephone calls charges. If a guest asks you to add a billing address this can also be easily done using the Microsoft® Word® template.
Lists make it clear
Beside the essential telephone statistics, HSC Entry offers a variety of lists to ease your work, for example, how many people might come for breakfast? Let HSC Entry provide the answers for you. With HSC Entry, you can print arrival lists, departure lists, guest lists, telephone lists, and room status lists which can be combined and used by staff as the basis for prioritizing and completing the tasks of the day.
Service Tracking for monitoring guest requests right through to their satisfaction completion, including escalation mechanisms and integration with service mobile devices. This innovative CRM solution is totally integrated and fully adapted for small hotels. Service Tracking ensures that both service requests of hotel guests and other work orders are collected and submitted to responsible hotel staff members. Moreover, you can follow the service progress from a central point. With the New Service Request window you can create a new service request for a guest staying in your hotel or enter other work orders. You can assign the service to a service attendant (or a category) and describe the service type as well as the time when the service should be performed and whether it is a periodical service.
*HSC Service Tracking license required
Wake-up service entry*
The wake-up service is managed independently by HSC Entry, which distinguishes three types:
- Wake-up orders from a guest telephone without voice prompting. The guest enters the required wakeup time directly via the telephone keypad. (Base Entry License)
- Wake-up orders from a guest telephone with voice prompting If the optional wake-up system (with voice prompting) has been installed, guests will be supported by voice prompting when entering their wake-up request (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Greek, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish voice prompts are included in standard delivery). (Required HSC Entry/Connect Wake-up advanced VoIP / 1-port license minimum 4 per system)
- Wake-up orders from the front office system if a guest has placed a wake-up request with reception, the room number and wake-up time will be transferred automatically from the front office system to HSC Connect after the reception attendant has entered the relevant data.
To carry out the wake-up orders, HSC Connect constantly checks its internal wake-up order file and calls the guest when they entered wake-up time has been reached. If a guest does not lift the handset after a certain number of wake-up calls, renewed ringing is activated after a time that can be set. All wake-up attempts, whether positive or negative, are transmitted to the front office system and logged. Any still active wake-up orders will be canceled when the guest checks out.

VoiceMail system (optional)*
HSC Entry has an optional VoiceMail module specifically tailored to hotel applications. Since this VoiceMail module supports several languages (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Greek, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish) in parallel it can be tailored to each hotel's individual requirements. When a guest checks in, "his/her" language is registered at reception by the front office system and forwarded to HSC entry. HSC Entry then opens a voicebox for this guest and changes over voice prompting to "his/her" language. Thanks to VoiceMail's relocation function, guests can change rooms in the hotel without losing their voice messages. A check is carried out on the front office system when guests check out to see if there are any messages that have not yet been listened to. Only then is the voicebox cleared. The VoiceMail system also offers voice prompting for the "wake-up, minibar, and room status" services.
The HSC Entry VoiceMail system comprises two components:
- Wake-up facility module incl. minibar, and room status
- VoiceMail module
