Read on to know more!
Booking Engine Now Secure With HTTPS
When you work in an environment where payments are a major part of everyday transactions, security becomes a dire necessity.
In account of this practice, we have secured our booking engine with HTTPS secure link for all our users. Because of this change, your information will remain confidential, thus saving it from any unauthorized access through cyber attacks.
Check Availability Before Adding A Reservation
Manual additions in a system can always lead to confusions or result into a haphazard condition of the system. Ergo, when you opt to add a reservation manually through the Add Reservation screen, the system will check availability of the selected room type for the selected duration. As a result, you will directly be able to know when to take a booking.
This feature will display a calendar in the screen which will indicate the available rooms as per the dates.
Split Room Cases : Not A Worry Anymore
Split Room Cases are a true cause of inconvenience for a guest. Not only does it leave a negative impact for your hotel, but also spoils your guest’s experience during his stay.
So, in the previous version of booking engine, we had developed a feature wherein you will be able to give an intimation to the booker about the Split Room Case while he performs the booking. Continuing with the same, we have built a new option – Discard Inventory of Split Room Case, which if chosen, will not show the booker any inventory if his chosen room type and stay duration contains a split room case.
This will save you from a disappointed guest as well as the guest from hassles of changing rooms during his stay.
Note: This feature is useful exclusively for users who are utilizing eZee Absolute and running inventory on Live mode.
Link Your Instagram Page With Your Booking Engine
Social Media poses as a natural extension of your hotel’s website. With increasing number of travelers being active on social media, it’s a must for hotels to mark their social media presence and engage with their guests.
With Facebook integration already a part of our booking engine, we have moved a step ahead, and provided an option to link your Instagram page with your booking engine in this version. This will work similar to the Facebook page link, and display an Instagram widget on your booking page, with a link to your Instagram page.
You can enable this option from: eZee Reservation Configuration Panel Property Setup Property Details Instagram Account Link
Introducing Date Wise Validity Deposit
Occasionally, it might happen, that you incur different deposit amounts for your guests depending on the season they arrive in.
At such times, taking date wise deposits can be the best bargain. Keeping this thought in mind, we have enabled the system to fix the deposit amounts as per the dates. Additionally, the system used to allow taking Rate Plan level deposits, but due to this feature, the system now has the facility to take up different deposits on Package level.
You can avail this feature at: eZee Reservation Configuration Panel Marketing Packages
