Using a SQL hotel database server
Work with Lodgit Desk from multiple computers at the same time
Did you know it’s possible to work on Lodgit desk using different computers? Perhaps you’d like to work in the back office while at the same time the front desk checks-in guests? Using a database server is the solution for that!
This method allows you to simultaneously access the shared database from multiple computers on the same local wired network; letting multiple users make bookings, create invoices, check in guests and more.
Multi user mode – work with Lodgit Desk from multiple computers on the same network
Easy Hotel Server Setup
Für die Mehrplatznutzung arbeitet Lodgit Desk mit dem Datenbankserver cubeSQL zusammen.
For multiple users Lodgit Desk works together with the database server cubeSQL.
This system is easy to install on an ordinary Windows, Mac or Linux computer in your local network. It also offers you a free license for up to two simultaneous connections! For more than two connections, inexpensive licenses can be purchased from the provider SQLabs.
Tip: The cubeSQL server uses so few resources that you can easily use this application on one of your existing computers.
While the installation is very simple we also provide detailed step by step instructions as a PDF download. Also given are instructions on how to set up the backup function and answers to the most common questions you will face.
It is important that the computer running cubeSQL always remains switched on when you are working with Lodgit Desk. This is because all users, regardless if they’re on a Windows computer or a Mac, will be accessing the same Lodgit database that’s stored on the cubeSQL server.
Simple Migration: Easy Switch Over
After installing and configuring the server on a computer in your local network, you can easily switch Lodgit Desk from single to multi user mode. If there’s no Lodgit Desk database on the server yet, you can upload your current working database right away.
You can then access the database from any computer on the local network that has Lodgit Desk installed – whether it’s a Windows or Mac computer.
The connection to the database server is an optional add-on module found in Lodgit Desk, which can be added to your existing license at any time. The activation of this module can be ordered from our Online Shop.
After purchase, this module will remain permanently unlocked in your license: so you won’t face any future charges when renewing your license. Should you have any questions about licenses or setup, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
