Booking system for every business type:
Automate the process of online hotel booking with BookingXML Web booking engine. Your guests get prompted for deposits / guarantees, whenever they try to confirm their bookings. All online payments and cancellation charges are captured as per the policy defined in the system. Automated email confirmations are sent to users with confirmed bookings.
Searching for the options. Nowadays there is a multitude of search engines and platforms to find accommodations.
Receiving an availability inquiry. The channel manager delivers these inquiries to your CRS to get the availability information.
Checking availability and sending response. At this stage, it’s necessary to verify in the system if the requested room type is available on indicated dates and get back with the result.
Receiving a reservation request. If the booker is satisfied with the rate and decides to stay at your hotel, the reservation request is created with the help of the booking engine (either the booking engine on your side or the OTA’s, depending on the channel) and sent to the CRS.
Confirming and blocking. In case the requested room is still available, it has to be blocked to prevent double-booking.
Receiving payment. This step is optional as many guests still prefer to pay on arrival.
Transferring information to other departments. The reservation record shares all the reservation details with other PMS modules.
Optional reservation modifications. Prior to arrival, the booking details might be adjusted.
Cancellations. Sometimes reservations are cancelled. In this case, the room has to be unblocked to allow for further booking, and, if prepayment took place, a refund has to be issued.
