It is highly needed and is now being used by many institutions like schools, business enterprises, hospitals, government and non-governmental institutions. However, not all of them are using computers. Some still tend to use the traditional or manual system. Nowadays, internet is one of most essential parts of modern life. Not only will it provide connection between computers, but it will also give us information that is easy and quick to access. A lot of information is within reach because of the internet, thus, serving us a lot of purposes including health, governmental, communication and business purposes.
Businesses are more productive when online system is being used. The web-based automation, billing reservation, and other transactions, reduces operational cost since only few number of employees are needed to run the system. Also, web based system is available anytime, in any places, and can be easily accessed or viewed by the expected customers, thus, increasing the number of reservations in a resort. There are a lot of resorts existing as of today’s generation. One of which is the RAJA Bearish Beach Resort that offers not only a pool and a beach but also rooms for overnight stays.
The present RAJA Bearish Beach resort has begun in 2003, when the owner, Ruben J. Bearish, bought a house and lot (property rights) from Mr.. Patronize De Castro and Mrs.. Anita Kananga. A year later, 2004, the construction begun of the first two-storey three bedrooms residential house was begun, with a purpose of a family summer vacation beach resort. Two years later, 2006, another ;o-storey building was constructed to accommodate some relatives and friends during summertime. The family resort then has the nip cottages.
Then by 201 0, they construct a concrete cottages and the resort started operating with its rooms for rent. As years passed on, there were suggestions of adding swimming pool for the resort centralization. Reason they say, is that the quality resorts have swimming pools in them. By June of 2013, they acquired a lot owned by Mr.. Boniface Berried and Mr.. Bollard Mendoza beside the resort. The new acquired land opened the opportunity to construct a swimming pool for centralization. And the resort finished last March this year, and a new RAJA Bearish Beach Resort was born.
We’ve asked the manager of the said resort whether they already have an online billing and reservation system and the manager said they don’t have any yet. She said that since the resort is new, they still haven’t managed to produce such system, considering they’re into renovations right now. They keep their client’s records manually, which we think is hassle because it is very time consuming and errors will be inevitable. Moreover, they still use the traditional system in providing customer services like booking for the rooms and compute billings, wherein the customers must go to the resort and talk personally to the staff to book for a room.
This type of process is best for walk-in customers, but we think that it will be more convenient for them if the process will also be of assistance to clients that are not always available to go to the resort. Online reservation and billing system will help them get more customers since contacting them will be within reach and interested clients will have a privilege to look and choose the room that they want by just visiting the website.
For this project, the researchers would like to propose a reservation and billing system to Raja Bearish Beach Resort to help its management have a better transaction by providing a better report-generating system that will provide more accurate summaries and help the owner to view the status of he resort for his convenience. It will also provide a user-friendly interface wherein customers can view the resort and can easily book a room online, lessening the hassle of their reservation. This system will provide convenience for both the employees and customers. 1. Purpose General: To develop an Online Reservation and Billing system for RAJA Bearish Beach Resort.
