Instant World Booking recently announced the soon-to-be-released IWBFrontDesk, a brand new full-featured property management system (PMS or Front Desk System). Subscribers to Instant World Booking’s services, and our insider’s distribution list, have been the first to learn of this new product, which promises substantial savings for hotel owners, hostel managers and innkeepers alike. Our core principles and technology platform have always led to a single philosophy: properties should not overpay for services that are designed to make our lives easier and more efficient.
IWBFrontDesk certainly achieves these goals, with significant savings compared to comparable products including Rezovation GT Online, Webervations, HostelPower, SuperInn, Resnexus, and dozens more.
IWBFrontDesk offers all the features you would expect from a property management system (PMS), and much more. Some of the features you can expect from this new product include:
- Availability Calendar Management
- Guest Management
- Reservation Management
- Accounting and Reporting
- Billing Statements
- Fully online solution (no backups or software updates needed)
- Attractive, Uncluttered, and Effortless Interface
- Full Customer Support
With this level of capability, Instant World Booking’s PMS makes it easier and cheaper to run your property and front desk. It’s also nice to know that IWBFrontDesk has no setup fees, and hassle-free startup.
If that’s not enough to convince you to at least try IWBFrontDesk, consider having these additional integrated services at your fingertips. Each of these services are offered in conjunction with the IWBFrontDesk PMS or separately as standalone products of Instant World Booking. You can choose which services you want.
1. Booking Engine for your website
- Instant World Booking’s leading Booking Engine for your website integrates perfectly with IWBFrontDesk. Our booking engine includes more flexible pricing and payment options for your guests than any other provider. You tell us how you want guests to pay. Collect a deposit or not. Offer special discounts or not. Choose instant booking or request-method reservations. You tell us how you want it to work, and we’ll provide it for cheaper than any other provider … we guarantee it.
2. Credit Card Collections
- We can handle deposit collection and customer payments for you. No merchant accounts or bank applications are required.
3. Online Requests or Instant Booking
- While instant booking is always preferred for online reservations, we understand that not every accommodation is prepared to accept instant confirmations. This is why we offer an optional request-method version for your website’s booking engine.
4. Channel Management
- Do you want to be able to manage your calendar only once, and then feed it to multiple other sources? Now you can. Use either the IWBFrontDesk PMS to manage your calendar (or the Instant World Booking calendar interface). Then feed your calendar to multiple 3rd party booking services, channel managers, etc. Our automatic calendar feeds are fully XML compliant, and we can integrate with virtually any 3rd party channel distribution system.
5. GDS/IDS Feeds
- Multiply your online exposure by feeding your availability to your choice of more than 100 GDS channels and booking sites (e.g., Expedia.com, Booking.com, Hotels.com, etc.). If you currently use a similar service elsewhere, or are considering taking online reservations from GDS sites, know that we offer pricing up to 60% cheaper than most other providers. Please let us know if we can help you save money on your GDS marketing.
6. Chain and Association Management
- Instant World Booking features special services and discounts to help lodging chains and associations manage their properties and online marketing. Any of the services described above can be customized specifically for your chain or association, all at substantial discounts.
If you have special needs or requirements, Instant World Booking specializes in developing custom solutions for your accommodation business or association. So please enquire with your own specific requirements. And remember, Don’t Overpay! As you can see from the sample discounts shown above, Instant World Booking always offers substantial savings over competing providers for the customized services you need to run your business.
