Omniboost Gastronovi POS -- MEWS Integration
Our Gastronovi POS to MEWS integration will connect your restaurant to your MEWS PMS. Once setup you can start charging you hotel guest and book them on room. In this article we will show you what you need to do in order to connect both systems.
Before you start
• The Gastronovi interface should be added to your MEWS PMS.
How it works
The integration will send over the data every 15 minutes between Gastronovi POS and Mews. Once a guest has been checked in, you can start and add charges to their room via Gastronovi. As the guest goes to your restaurant after check in, they will appear the HOTAPI search function in your Gastronovi app. Simple search for them by name or room number and they will show up and in one click you can send over the charge to their room.
Step 1: Setup integration
When you’re logged in on the POS Connector just click setup integration to continue to the settings.
Step 2: Gastronovi settings
On this page you have to setup the Gastronovi settings. The page looks like this:
Please fill in a name for the tips and a name for the discounts. You will see those names in the PMS when a tip or a discount is send over.
Step 3: Mews settings
After the Gastronovi settings page, the Mews settings page will show up:
On this page you can select the Default Analysis Code. This code (which is actually a MEWS accounting category) will be used when the mapping (in the next step of the pos-sytem) between a Gastronovi product category and MEWS accounting category is empty. So under Default Analysis Code, the MEWS accounting category can be selected to which revenues should be posted by default if the mapping in step 3 for one of the Gastronovi product categories is missing. Via this we make sure that revenues are always posted to an accounting category, even if the mapping for a product category is empty.
The same holds for the Default Payment Code. Here you can select the accounting category to which payments should be posted in case the mapping in the next step is empty.
Then you see the Outlet ID. You see all the floors from the POS and you can link them to any of the Outlets from your PMS. Then select the Service, this is for the Service to be ordered. We need this ID when we send a charge for an On Room payment.
It is therefore of main importance to select both an Outlet and a Service per Gastronovi Floor. If this is not done, revenues and/or payments will be missing in MEWS.
Then, select the Tip Code. Next, select the Tax Codes for the different percentages. At the 0.0%, select the code for the 0.0% tax. After that, select the discount code.
Step 4: Set up the mapping
The next step is the mapping. On the left side, you can see the POS categories. You can map those categories to the PMS categories on the right side. When the mapping is completed, click on Save Mapping and connect to Omniboost, and we are good to go to send over charges on room and other payments.
