Have a restaurant/bar at your property? You can allow guests to bill their charges to their room and pay at checkout. Preno has integrated with Lightspeed O-Series/Kounta POS, a leading cloud-based hospitality POS platform. 

With the Preno/Lightspeed POS integration, 'Bill to room' is treated as a payment type in Lightspeed POS. The charges will automatically be sent to the guest's booking as an extra in Preno.
