The Amandari Cove is one of the resorts that serve rooms, cottages, conference hall and dining area reservations. It is a new establishment and they still don’t have computerized system for reservation which can be useful for business purposes. That is why the researcher decided to make this study. This will show that using the manual reservation have more disadvantages than advantages. In using manual reservation, the personnel can get a fast response and can hear the caller’s voice. But it slows the process of reservation and has a low in security. When searching and retrieving records, it may be difficult or hard to find. There might also have a possibility that the records will get lost or a possibility of duplication. The records made for reservation results to paper works that needs a lot of space. Thus, making the work area small and the personnel may find it difficult to move. The disadvantages can be encountered when using manual reservation and this will lead to problems. In addition to these, there is also a problem on how to help the establishment and the personnel to have an accurate service and to monitor the customer’s records. With the hi-tech society, the computers and mobile phones can transform the manual systems. One of the solutions to the problems can be solved with a system that can process fast reservation; can give high security to prevent frauds; the customer can make a reservation anytime, anywhere; can prevent double booking; and can save time and money.
