Property management takes to the clouds this week as a state-of-the-art new platform launches for hotels, resorts, holiday parks, motels and apartments.
Built using more than a decade’s worth of feedback from experts, NewBook is browser-based, intuitive, highly responsive and incredibly flexible. It streamlines accommodation and reservation tasks so everything can be managed from one place, whether in the office, at home, on-site or on the move.
Harnessing cutting edge internet technology and mobility, NewBook is a revolution in both property management and software as a service (SaaS). The platform couples a proprietary property management system with cloud reservation software, all backed with a comprehensive set of indispensable tools. Packed with features, NewBook can handle every major and minor component of accommodation management and delivery from online bookings and check in – check out to housekeeping, maintenance, staff performance, accounting and marketing.
Brad Illich Creator and MD of NewBook said, “NewBook is much more than just a PMS and reservation system. It is a profitable marketing tool that can capture a wide range of data needed to make correct marketing decisions. In testing it has proven to increase staff efficiency, reduce running costs and most importantly increase the number of online bookings clients receive. We also have a lot of surprises coming up over the next few months, which have never been seen before in the industry.”
As a web-based system, NewBook is both tablet and smartphone friendly. It has a desktop-like appearance for ease of use and convenience. It also spots an integrated online booking engine, Siteminder channel manager connectivity and an integrated virtual credit card gateway for online payment processing. A full reporting function gives more than 60 styles of reports, putting data to hand in a useable and useful format around the clock.
One of the most interesting features of NewBook is the way it effortlessly handles online bookings to maximise occupancy and profitability. Reservations and room management are fully integrated with the Newbook booking engine and mobile booking engine. It also connects to Siteminder, allowing third-party bookings to be placed into the NewBook system and will perform an automated instant inventory update to the user’s own website and third party booking channels.
NewBook UK sales and marketing manager Chris Petty said, “NewBook is quite simply a breath of fresh air. It is transformative, intuitive and packed with features that simply make sense. We have designed it hand-in-hand with accommodation managers to ensure that every feature you’d expect to find, need to use and would like access to is not just present but user-friendly and flexible. The system adapts to any size of business including multi-national property groups. Our users feel comfortable navigating NewBook straight out of the box and see an instant increase in efficiency. Data shows that NewBook can save each staff member 30 minutes to an hour each day simply by using the system, equating to thousands of pounds of time saved each month.”
