Austin, TX (PRWEB) February 4, 2008
RezOvation, Inc., the leader in Property Management Systems for inns, bed and breakfasts, hotels and specialty lodging, announced the release of RezOvation GT 4.5. This latest version offers stunning product advancements making it easier than ever to manage a property, provide online booking via websites, process credit cards and market to guests.
"Our latest product combines features that customers have requested recently; we feel RezOvation GT offers the top combination of product enhancements for small lodging property management systems," commented John Banczak, Chief Operating Officer of RezOvation, a Microsoft Certified company, and BedandBreakfast.com. "The most important additions to RezOvation GT are the new marketing tools that give inns the ability to better communicate with customers," finished Banczak.
RezOvation GT enables users to send automatic e-mails to guests -- for any occasion. If innkeepers know guests' birthdays or anniversaries, a fully customized e-mail can be sent with a special offer. Messages about seasonal events or special interest activities are now fully automated using RezOvation GT, while an unlimited amount of communications and customized templates can be easily designed in Microsoft Word. Best of all, there is no extra charge, unlike other services that charge up to $400 a month. Innkeepers can schedule automated e-mails to be sent before arrival or after departure to each guest, including directions, late check-in policies, area attractions or review requests. "Including such advanced complimentary marketing features is another way RezOvation is bringing both powerful tools to the industry and tremendous value at the same time," explained Banczak.
RezOvation has also added two more ways to enable online bookings on B&B websites. Now properties can post a fully customized and interactive availability calendar, or they can install a date search box on any or all of their web pages. The availability calendar displays room photos, rates, availability and minimum stay information. It also enables guests to pick dates, then immediately book them with a fully confirmed reservation. The date search box is a handy tool to place in navigation bars or the header of a website. Both new tools, as well as the existing customized booking engine option that has been available for years, are available at no extra charge to current RezOvation customers, and at a low monthly fee to new customers. And both tools lead to the same HackerSafe certified and VeriSign Secure booking pages. "Now innkeepers have three different options for displaying availability and taking bookings. Innkeepers can setup their websites exactly the way they want to offering an attractive and fully functional range of booking interfaces," remarked Banczak.
In addition to the new marketing features, RezOvation also launched its integrated credit card processing through Intuit's Quickbooks Merchant Services. Now RezOvation GT customers can process credit card transactions directly through the GT program. This eliminates double-entry of traditional credit card terminals, with all information securely stored in one place. The processing is done through a certified lodging gateway to insure the best rates and chargeback protection -- something few other PMS companies offer. There is no sign-up fee for the service, the low rates are competitive, and for a limited time, customers who sign up for the product get a free copy of Quickbooks 2008 and RezOvation GT -- more than a $700 value. Of course, RezOvation GT exports to Quickbooks to simplify accounting for RezOvation properties.
"We think innkeepers will immediately realize the value of these great product enhancements, placing RezOvation GT far beyond the competition. GT is easier to use, more powerful and an incredible value compared to anything else on the market," commented John Banczak.
