Montreal, Canada (PRWEB) December 10, 2004
Internet Merchandising Systems Inc. announced today the availability of Version 2.5 of its latest VoyagerÂ® Multi-Hotel/Property Reservation Software and associated MultiLinx license modules, designed specifically for destination websites and allowing hotels to manage directly their online bookings and rates distribution to all market segments including Internet users, travel agents and corporate clients.
With MultiLinx licenses, destination websites can add further capabilities to the IMS Voyager Multi-Hotel/Property Reservation software by allowing each licensed hotel to log-in online directly and access their own secure hotel administrative area to control their rates, arrange rate category schemes for each market segment, room/property availability, photos and descriptive information.
The multi-property reservation software makes it possible for hotels, regional properties or properties with a common theme to expand their Internet presence save on distribution costs and generate more sales. It also provides instant confirmation of reservations made through a hotel website, and will notify the hotel's Reservation Department though automatically generated e-mail messages.
This strategy allows destination marketing websites, e-Lodging websites and small hotel or property owners with multiple hotels or properties to share their development expenses, offer unique websites and add marketing initiatives such as links to other websites with complimentary services, website advertising and pay-per-click promotions. This capability gives them the presence to compete directly with third party online websites in their own local markets.
Many new features are included, such as; minimum number of days for room booking; choice of drop down menu or standard list to display hotel rooms or tours; currency converter; option to have ÂCustomer Service AgentsÂ booking for telephone customers, etc.
The software includes many other standard features and capabilities to promote and grab attention such as: travel agent booking, corporate booking and wholesaler booking, whereby each agent or client accesses the system directly from the hotel's own website with a unique login/password combination, allowing the administrator to assign each user to a specific group, and to determine the information and privileges each group will receive.
For web promotion the software also includes as standard an integrated newsletter & email engine, automated affiliate program, ecommerce gift shop capability (IMScart ecommerce), P2P (Product to Product) up-sell display linking and merchandising plus a powerful coupon discount module.
