Yes, Quick Start Guide for HSC is available.
HSC offers the possibility to import and export large volumes of data (mass data) fast and easily.
For import of master data (such as hotel and employee data) the 'HSC V2.6 MasterData Interface Tool' is available (see below).
During export the data are transmitted into the database in the same way as if they had been entered over the administration interface of Front Office. This means that the same checks (dependencies, license conformity, etc.) are performed as in the use of the administration interface!
Other than in the administration interface, only new data can be added with the mass data import function, while existing ones cannot be changed or deleted. (The attempt to change already existing data is rejected by the system with the message "Entry already exists".) In this way it is prevented that the function of the HSC system is impaired after import.
