Bookassist Booking Engine and related technology works perfectly for the individual hotel. But the system can also be used for multiple hotels in a group. The advantage for groups is the additional layer of access for the customer that we can provide online.
Using our hotel group technology on your website(s) means that online customers can view all hotels on a single page for easy comparison. They can search for availability and rates across an entire group with ease, or they can search within a specific geographical area only for example. They can search directly from a map view that shows real live availability. And customers on a particular hotel website can be automatically recommended other hotels in the group if there is an availability problem.
Our loyalty and corporate systems can also be used across the entire hotel group. And our mobile solution caters for groups as easily as it caters for individual hotels.
