The goals of the Front Office Operations and Auditing Workbook, Second Edition have evolved over the years. The workbook begins with exercises to provide the user with a clearer insight into front office and guest accounting and operations. This is accomplished by having the student begin by performing a simple, manual audit of the guest accounts receivable.
In the first section, the student performs an entire day's front office transactions before beginning the audit itself. The preliminary front office guest management part of the exercise should put front office accounting operations into cycled perspective.
The "computer" section of this book is designed to illustrate how front office operations flow from the manual foundation which we have laid in the context of an actual property management system. This section helps students understand that the primary goal is to provide guests with excellent, quick service and the hotel with accurate records.
In order to help provide tools for constant quality management and guest services, this latest edition contains an entirely new section on operational auditing in the front office and for guest services. This new section on front office operational auditing can serve many purposes. Most importantly, it aids the student in getting an overview of how the functions they read about in their textbook are actually applied and evaluated. With the addition of the operational auditing section, the Front Office Operations and Auditing Workbook, Second Edition goes well beyond traditional accounts receivable and income auditing.show more
