Thank you for the opportunity to present to you who we are, and what Jireh Hospitality have to offer.
Jireh Hospitality is a hotel management and consultancy company with Christian-based values and a Marketplace Ministry calling - integrating successful business practices with God's ministry.
We have been blessed with the opportunity to develop and set up the Auckland City Hotel as a template for the Marketplace Ministry model. It has been a work-in-progress learning through trial and error, but looking back, the so-called 'tough times' have proven to be the most productive in terms of valuable lessons learnt.
We are passionate about sharing the values and systems Jireh Hospitality have developed over the years managing the Auckland City Hotel and the experiences and expertise of our people. We believe success is measured in more than just monetary terms, so in addition to equipping our clients and partners to run profitably and to achieve satisfaction and joy in the process is, as MasterCard puts it, 'Priceless.'
We look forward to the opportunity to build truly outstanding and prosperous accommodation businesses with you.

We believe that any investors or owners contemplating capital investment in a specific site should develop a clear master plan which justifies the investment, lays the foundation for future investment and sets out how this is to be achieved. It should be a working document to be used and modified as functions, objectives and other parameters change.Our approach is to achieve FOUR main objectives:
The Global Strategic Alliance brings together like-minded hotels with values aligned with those of Jireh Hospitality.WHAT WE DO
Jireh Hospitality provides centralised accounting services for hotel clients resulting in lower administrative payroll costs to the hotel and more accurate, informative and timely financial information. The central accounting office closely monitors daily accounting reports, supervises payroll processing, prepares monthly bank reconciliations, files sales and user tax returns, pays most invoices, and manages hotel cash.
JHL can assist in the setting and subsequent monitoring of meaningful cost control measures. Payroll is analysed daily, energy costs controlled, preventive maintenance programs are established, and an extensive Policy and Procedures Manual is utilised by property management.
To ensure both a high degree of operating efficiency and administrative accuracy an audit is conducted no less than twice a year. In addition to a thorough inspection of the physical property, the audit consists of a complete examination of the hotel's cash handling and reporting methods, the accuracy of daily reports, and analysis of payables and receivables, a check of all employment records, and a detailed review of all front office and administrative procedures.
Both monthly and quarterly reports are prepared for ownership. These reports include an analysis of present, past and projected performance. The monthly financial statements include balance sheets, cash flow statements and income statements.
A quarterly report is prepared to show and explain deviations in the income statement from the budget, personnel changes, market conditions, sales updates and capital improvement expenditures.
Jireh Hospitality places special emphasis on a strong and effective sales and marketing department. Sales works strongly on two levels, nationally and internationally.
