Amazing!

Pros

A very easy to use system that was very easy to implement and is great value for money. I love the fact that there are always updates, which means that Newbook are always ahead of the game when it comes to features. The support team are very friendly and know their stuff and the Wiki and support request features are all great. My favourite features that other systems do not offer is the read receipt of emails sent through the system and the feature suggestions. Once up and running, the direct connection with Airbnb will be

Cons

Direct connections are that are offered are very Australian based and do not fit into the London Hotel & Apartment sector.

NewBook combines multiple booking channels for us

NewBook is pretty fine to meet our needs in multiple channel booking management and helps us avoid multiple bookings and update the availability in all online sales channels as well as in our website and this way we avoid multiple bookings and helps us save time in booking operations.

Pros

Management of all reservation channels is really a hard operation especially if you have a website that already has a huge demand and always there is the risk of multiple bookings or delays in updating the room availability. NewBook solves our multiple channel reservation problem along with the reservations in our website so that whenever we accept a booking through a particular sales channel, Newbook reflects it to all other remaining channels as well as our website.

Cons

NewBook neither cover our requirements in-hotel facility reservation side like SPA bookings nor helps us to provide digitization in providing access to our other services such as room service. That would be better to have a version that covers the in-hotel service portfolio along with multi-channel room booking management.

Reasons for Choosing NewBook

Multiple sales channel management module of NewBook was much more better then the others.

Reasons for Switching to NewBook

NewBook is better with its feature to manage multiple sales channels along with our website which was the dominant factor in our switch.

Pleasure!

I have found over the 5+ years we have been with Newbook to be a pleasure and a breeze. It has been designed for everyday users with simplicity and ease. If you ever run into a problem, the crew at support are always happy to help and it is always with such ease (and they don't laugh or judge when you have those silly "duh" moments when the solution was right in front of you!) I would highly recommend anyone to use Newbook.

Pros

Everything. It is simple, user friendly and self explanatory and makes working long hours daily on the system a breeze.

Cons

Reporting could be improved slightly to make it easier to find some things or calling them more obvious things. But that is a minute con.

Reasons for Switching to NewBook

Our internet connection was a main contributing factor, but something new and simple was something we were after.

Hi Prasad, It is disappointing to see that you are posting this incorrect review of NewBook on Capterra. Our team provided solutions to all of your needs and complex requirements. Our system can be either easy or complex depending on how complex your individual property/rate setup is. As a property management system NewBook has a large number of OTA's directly connected such as Expedia Group, Hotels.com, Booking.com, AirBnB, HomeAway, TripAdvisor, Trip.com Agoda, Lido and many others but we never promoted to have hundreds like a separate channel manager would, i.e Siteminder (which we also support). If posting a bad review is an attempt to avoid paying your outstanding bills I can assure you we do not operate that way and are confident potential clients will see the large number of positive reviews and know we really do take care of our clients and offer top notch service and support. Regards, Shaye Illich Business Development Manager

An Industry 'Game Changer'

Very professional business management and front of house software

Pros

The training and updates provide great support and are relevant to everyday operational requirements. In particular, the support desk is so dedicated and creative. They truly assist the business to maximize the use of the platform and management system to the benefit of the individual business. The new updates have some incredible developments - they are solution driven. The regular improvements provide a competitive edge for our business as the system is continually updated to promote current best practice.

Cons

Sometimes the updates can be a bit overwhelming to get through and train staff about.

Reasons for Switching to NewBook

Newbook is far more user friendly and sophisticated. The reports and customisation is fabulous
