Protel bookatonce.com software is a Web-based reservation system designed to assist small hotels, guest houses and bed and breakfasts with managing their rooms, guest data, rates and billing.
This product offers a color-coded reservation calendar that can be modified in real-time. Managers can also create a database of guest information, such as addresses, phone numbers and vehicle details, to keep on hand.
For the back office, bookatonce.com allows managers to define time periods for special rates and availability, and to create discounted rates for children or seniors. Invoices can be modified in various ways—for example, by merging charges to create special packages or splitting them amongst guests. And the reporting function generates reports for reservation, arrival and departure, cancellation and housekeeping information.
All of these functions are available from a central menu, where settings can be modified. Managers can create separate user names and access rights, and download information for offline use.
The system allows to book anywhere you are with your iphone. You can from sales perspective deal directly with your customer and quote their demand instantly. You avoid overbooking because all the systems are linked to bookatonce and the availability is shared with the hotel, on line tour-operators, and central system of reservation (chain, affiliate program...). You enforce the loyalty program because all the details of your client will be in the 360° view with all data (past stays, future bookings, preferences and revenues).
Is the first system for hotel to propose a direct connection to the pms software. The hotelier can in 20 min have a full system of mobile reservation when he decide to register bookatonce and get the app.
For a mobile application in the iphone we expect more and more functions to be able even to check in the client. The ipad app will complete very well the iphone app and permit the development of the nomad use of bookatonce.
I run a familly hotel in Greece. 15 rooms.
I searched a while to find a solution that will help me manage my bookings, plannings, communication with partners, and this 100% online.
As I have a background of ERP consulting, I was really demanding. There are many solution out there, but look no further.
Bookatonce is just the perfect product for us, it can do much more than just manage your planning and bookings. Which it does easily and in the flexibility that small businesses like mine expect.
All other solutions I've tested had so many restrictions and were not adapted to how we're really working.
We ended up doing half the work manually with excel.
Bookatonce has all the features we expected and more. Setup was quick and easy, their support was available for any question I had.
They helped us quickly increase our bookings, and compete with bigger hotels that can invest into more employees, and have better marketing.
Our booking forecast is already better than last year :-)
- Fits the flexibility small hotels expect
- 100% online. I control everything from everywhere.
- Native connections to the GDS I use, and much more so we extended our coverage.
- Easy to use
- great reporting tool to adjust selling str
no cons so far.
I have used the application to come closer to the development house and the ideas.
