RezNext enhances RezE – booking engine, with industry-first dynamic package and promo functionality for direct bookings
Key among new features is a 3 step booking process for faster conversions
Bangalore, May 9, 2016: RezNext, the world’s only true real-time enterprise distribution technology and profit management company, has revamped its internet booking technology with industry leading functionality to support dynamic packages and promotions. Core to the new functionality is also the 3 step booking process designed to help hotels improve their conversions.
“Direct bookings for hotels in India is still a fraction of the hotel’s total online sales. We believe the key to success is in the booking experience that the solution offers, the UI and the time taken to complete a booking. We also realise that a booking engine must have important functionalities like advanced promotions and dynamic packages to present lucrative offers to customers trying to book directly through a hotel’s website. Our current release addresses this need in the market,” states Avinash Lodha, Chief Executive Officer and CFO, RezNext Global Solutions.
According to Abhijit Dey, Founder – Managing Director, Starline Hospitality, “We are currently managing two properties in two very important destinations in India – Goa (Manthan Yogic Village) and Manali (De Vivendi Resorts). For both these destinations it is important to have various packages built in by seasonality. We have been able to achieve that with RezNext’s booking engine – RezE. The solution has a rich visual display which adds more appeal to our offerings. We are also able to build different meal plans to provide more value to our guests.”
“We are very happy with the new version of RezNext’s booking engine. The user interface is great and has made our work easier as the reservations get automatically updated real-time,” said Dhruba Talukdar, Manager – Front Office, The Guwahati Address – By Centre Point.
RezNext’s booking engine – RezE has been built to provide a great booking experience across devices. The solution has custom built designs for all devices to ensure optimum usage of the booking engine across any platforms. According to Bartibaraj Somaasundaram, Chief Technology Officer, “The new release of our IBE is tightly integrated with the hotel’s website to have a similar look and feel and also provides a search widget on the hotel’s website to facilitate an instant booking decision. We have also put lots of focus in building a robust technology platform for the booking engine that delivers faster page loads.”
