Importance of a Booking Engine
When deciding on a booking engine to implement to your property, there are some main factors you need to think about.
Firstly, every hotel is different. So, you should want an engine that is fully customizable to the needs of you and your customers. You need to make sure that the integration is seamless and convenient for guests. To that note, the process needs to be simple. Nobody wants to be redirected to 4 different pages just to book a room at your resort. A common rule of thumb is to go from point a to point b in no more than 2 steps.
As with every other department of your hospitality business, hoteliers need to ensure that their booking engine is multilingual capable and accepts foreign currencies to cater to international clients. Booking Ninjas provides a significant advantage in that we accept advanced payment options, understands foreign languages and currencies, and is run on a fully mobile platform.
Monetary opportunities are abundant with the implementation of a comprehensive booking engine. Namely it makes it easy to upsell and provide your customers with opportunities to conveniently upgrade to higher-tier rooms with the click of a button. And with the data you have from the engine, you can make their stay a personalized one.
And most importantly, the ability for your booking engine to integrate with your property management software is a necessity. This allows the engine to work alongside other solutions such as a channel manager or room rate controller giving you full control of how your hotel is viewed by those online.
The Booking Ninjas offers complete digital transformation for your property. Read more about our channel manager which works with the booking engine to extract data and payment information from 3rd party websites.
