Merlin Software Timeshare Sales Module

  1. 1. Merlin Software Sales Module For all timeshare and fractional products
  2. 2. Merlin Software’s timeshare and fractional sales module For all your sales activity from contracts to commissions – and everything in between. Merlin Software
  3. 3. What is Merlin’s timeshare sales module? The Merlin sales module is where contracts are created and ownership is tracked and managed. It includes features for developer sales, owner re-sales and for rescissions. Contract printing and storing of signed paperwork is also accommodated. Finally, all transactions which have an accounting impact can be recorded on the contracts in the sales module and will be picked up automatically in Merlin’s back office module - which includes a fully integrated double entry accounting package. These transactions include sales revenue as well as product and commission expenses. Merlin Software sales module From fixed weeks to points clubs – we have it covered
  4. 4. What are the top three advantage of Merlin Software’s sales module? 1. Merlin is built by people who understand timeshare from the inside. We are not just software developers, but have actually developed timeshare projects and have designed and built Merlin Software to cater for actual operational needs 1. Merlin is in the cloud. No servers or IT department is needed. It’s all provided as part of the service with professional security and back up. 2. At Merlin we are passionate about support and leaving no user on their own. Our focus is not just on building superb software, but also one ensuring our users receive a “celebrity- style” service.

  5. 5. Can Merlin Software’s sale module handle all timeshare and fractional products? In a word - yes. We were involved as property developers in fractional and points products from as early as 1986 and developed the rules upon which most of today’s fractional and points systems are based. Can Merlin Software handle more than one type of product per property? Merlin Software has three dimensional logic as far as product types per property are concerned. Merlin Software can manage a hierarchy of product types in the same units - and in the same property. Merlin Software sales module From fixed weeks to points clubs – we have it covered
  6. 6. Can Merlin Software’s sales module produce sales contracts without manually typing them? Oh yes. And once signed and scanned, the final document can be uploaded and stored on the contract record in Merlin Software. Can Merlin Software hold a price list so staff don’t have to type in amounts? Again the answer is - yes. Merlin Software allows resorts to have multiple price lists for both revenue and expense, with multiple line items per price list. And you can have rates in multiple currencies. Did I mention that Merlin has a fully integrated accounting system and deals seamlessly with multiple currencies?

  7. 7. Can Merlin Software handle different currencies? Yes we do. Merlin tracks all transactions in three currencies: The home currency of the company, the currency of the debtor’s or creditor’s account and the currency of the transaction. In simple terms, your home or company currency can be in USD, the debtor can have an account in GBP and they can settle in EUR. Merlin does all the currency conversions using the exchange rate valid for the transaction date. Exchange rates are stored in the system and there is a full audit on these rates for what they were in the past. At the end of each month when the accounting period is closed, Merlin re-values all foreign accounts (assets and liabilities) and writes the adjustment to the Forex P&L account.

  8. 8. Does Merlin Software keep a history of all previous owners of the inventory? Merlin has a full audit trail of every owner of every piece of inventory. We know who owned what and when they owned it. Also who is obligated to pay the annual dues each year and who may use the timeshare each year. Merlin Software sales module From fixed week to points clubs – we have it covered Can Merlin Software structure the sales debt and add interest? Resorts are able to structure the deposit/down payment into multiple instalments and then structure the balance into instalments with or without interest.
  9. 9. Does Merlin Software’s sales module connect with other functionality within Merlin? ? Yes. When a sale or re-sale is made Merlin links the sales revenue and expenses, including commissions, into the accounting package in the back office module. Merlin then adjusts any future annual dues already invoiced to the previous owner and re- invoices these to the new owner. It does the same with future bookings - and it’s all automatic. Does Merlin Software’s sales module track the commission owing and paid? Yes, Merlin Software can do this. And we deal with a phenomenal number of commission systems and rules. Too many to mention here – but whatever your system is, we can support you. Merlin Software sales module From fixed weeks to points clubs – we have it covered
  10. 10. What future enhancements do you have planned? Our focus for many areas of Merlin Software is building front end apps for specific types of users and to deal with repetitive processes or workflows. These apps comprise customized front ends that incorporate workflows for specific users. For instance, we have a call centre agent desktop that integrates with a client’s auto dialler and pops calls onto the call centre agent’s desktop. From there they are able to follow a predetermined workflow which may include selling a mini-vac on the call, actually finding and booking the accommodation, the hooked tour and taking the payment and sending the confirmation, all in real time and all part of a workflow. We may consider building a sales contract take on app to do something similar, although our present rapid contract take-on workflows seem to be doing just fine.
