Solutions and services:
Room Service® is used by universities and private providers to manage their student accommodation. The software helps process applications, allocations, room offers, induction, arrivals, inventory, room moves and swaps, early departures, departures and contract extensions, as well as with invoicing, payments, debt management and reporting. Our student portal contains device-responsive web pages for students to self-serve. Our content management system provides control over style sheets, layouts, page content and media so that you can brand and design the portal to suit your house style. Online payments for deposits, prepayments, booking fees and rent are made via Sage Pay. Room Service supports recurring card authorities and direct debits too.
Occam's software for managing student accommodation uses Sage Pay to collect deposits and rent.
