Planet Central

Hotel Reservations Systems
When running multiple properties or a hotel chain, it is not practical to have different reservation models. Planet Central makes it possible to manage the guest information (room status, room rates and room inventory) of all your properties from one single screen.


Online front desk

Fast access check-in and check-out buttons to speed up operations. Stop switching between tabs. All relevant information at a glance. A check-in wizard ensures all important details are captured . Zero complications. Easy to alter invoice recipient, split invoices and post charges with one click. Easy room plan management. Group reservations are no longer a hassle.


Booking Engine

Booking Engine
Cut out the service fees and attract more direct bookings with an online booking engine. You can plug it in directly to your hotel website and receive bookings.


Payment Processing

Payments Processing Software
Declined credit cards, processing foreign exchange, and payment security are just a few things that keep hoteliers up at night.


Revenue Management System

Revenue Management Systems
So here is some good news; hotel operators that switch to an online revenue management system experience a RevPAR increase of between 5-20% per month. It is essential that the RMS can integrate directly into your hotel PMS system. This automation has led to hospitality businesses saving between 20-40 hours per week.


Digital Registration Cards

Contactless Check-in
The hotel industry can now eliminate all these issues and have more efficient check-ins, with minimal errors on guest profiles and at a reduced cost to the hotel.


ID & Passport Scanner

With Planet’s ID and Passport, scanner staff can effortlessly scan multiple passports and IDs and store them securely on the PMS solution.


Planet POS

Hotel Restaurant POS Systems
Fixed terminals, server tablets, self-service kiosks, and mobile devices. There are so many POS options for the hospitality industry today. Planet has a user-friendly solution that will work for your specific needs.


Conference & Event Management System

Event Management Software
With our conference and event software, hoteliers have coverage of every single aspect. From the first call the customer makes, through the booking process, through every detail hashed out on the day to when the last cent is paid into the hotel’s account.



Pricing Available By Request

Planet has opted not to share general pricing on their profile but you can request a quote below. Often this is an indicator that pricing is flexible so it is recommended that you obtain multiple price quotes to negotiate.

Hoteliers say

NEW AI Review summary

Hoteliers like that Protel offers extensive functionality and strong integration capabilities, but are critical of its slow response times and various bugs post-acquisition by Planet. The current system aids in managing single properties well, but struggles with more complex, multi-property setups. Protel's useful features include detailed reporting and ease of customization, but there are concerns over the long support response times and unfinished updates, which can disrupt daily operations.

I recommend to use this product ONLY to run a single property, with a simple rate structure, no more than 2 room types, without interfacing to any RMS, CRM, BI or similar external systems, and catering to simple individual leisure travelers only. Alternatively, use it if your intelligent, proactive and wholesomely experienced staff run your...

I like Protel very much. At first I was little bit afraid, but then I found out, that it has many reporting options and moreover any table previewed can be exported to Excel and it Excel you can filter them as much as you want. Now I like Protel more than other PMS I used to work with before :)
