You can set up your Clocks PMS+ integration in as little as 10 minutes. There is no technical knowledge required to complete the entire process and we have made it very easy with the step-by-step video and instructions.
Step 1: Log into your Clock PMS account, go to 'Settings' and click on 'API Users'.
Step 2: Once you click on 'API user' you need to fill out all the necessary fields. Make sure to check the Acknowledgement box, select 'Hotel Demo (Hotel)', and finally, under 'Grand Rights - PMS', check the 'Access: basic' box. Click on 'Save'.
Step 3: Go back to 'API Users', click 'Edit' next to 'Katanox user', and on this page, you will create an API key by clicking on 'Create API Key'. Before saving it, remember to copy your new API Key and your PMS API URL as you will need them for the next step.
Step 4: Now you can sign up on Katanox and fill in your details.
Step 5: Once you've verified your email address and logged into your account, you can click on 'Connect PMS', then click on 'New Integration' and select 'Clock PMS+'. On this page, you can now paste your 'PMS API URL' and 'API KEY'. Add your 'Username', and click on 'Import to Katanox'.
Step 6: Without closing your Katanox account, go back to Clock’s PMS+ homepage, go to 'Settings', and this time click on 'OTA Channel Settings'. There you'll find Katanox, and by clicking on 'Open' you can start mapping your inventory.
Start by clicking on 'New', then add your 'Room Type' followed by 'Max Rooms' and click on 'Create' for every category. Please make sure you leave the 'Ota Room Type
Code' empty as this will be automatically generated for you. Click on 'Create'.

'Rate' and click on 'Create' for each one.
