ALL THE RIGHT FEATURES

SELF-HOSTED

MOHOBOOK is 100% web-based but unlike traditional SaaS (software as a service) solutions, you are licensed to install it inside your own hosting environment eliminating the worry of rental fees or someone else’s service becoming unavailable.

This means you can still enjoy all the benefits of a web-based application such as “anywhere access” without the concern of hardware compatibility that complicates onsite installations. If you can access the Internet, you can effortlessly use MOHOBOOK.

WORDPRESS INTEGRATION

MOHOBOOK can effortlessly be integrated into a WordPress site, no different than a traditional HTML site. Case in point, the demo on mohobook.com is a functioning example of this. The process is the same with any type of site; install the application, copy the supplied JavaScript snippet, paste into the page where you want the booking engine to appear.

VERSATILE FRONTDESK

For those who purchase MOHOBOOK to manage phone-in and walk-in bookings, the Frontdesk module is all you need. In fact, some customers will only use MOHOBOOK for this reason. The beauty of an all-in-one solution like MOHOBOOK, is that you can use it for just online bookings, or for just phone-in and walk-in bookings, or for both simultaneously.

Although the Frontdesk contains all of the settings that shape the online booking engine, it is also a stand-alone module that can be used to facilitate your property’s reservations from a web-based interface. The advantage of being web-based is that you don’t have to worry about complex software installations that your office computers might not be compatible with. If you have an Internet connection, and a modern web browser, you’re in business. Another notable advantage of MOHOBOOK is that resides inside your own web hosting environment. This means you are not married to a third-party solution with too much control over your booking environment (and data). You don’t need to worry about ongoing rental fees, commissions, or someone going out of business and taking your booking software and guest data down with them. Because the Frontdesk feature set is too much to cover on the feature summary page, we invite you to try the free demo.

MODERN BOOKING ENGINE

By adding a small snippet of JavaScript code to any page on your website, you’re given the nearly immediate benefit of capturing online bookings through a compact, intuitive, booking module. Taking a complex feat like this and making it easy to use and available to small properties is the exact reason we built MOHOBOOK.

Your guests start by choosing their check-in and check-out dates. Immediately, a list of available accommodations will be shown to them along with available Extras (if enabled), and the option to select their occupants. Next they will enter their personal information, and be shown a summary of their reservation. At this point they can modify their selections, or enter their payment information (if enabled), and check out. The booking engine is designed with booking retention in mind. We encourage you to try the free demo and see for yourself. With a large percentage of Internet traffic shifting to mobile, we have taken great effort to ensure mobile compatibility for your guests. The MOHOBOOK booking engine automatically detects device screen size and serves up a responsive interface to accommodate desktops, laptops, tablets and smart phones.

REAL-TIME AVAILABILITY

Both the Frontdesk module and the Booking Engine are driven by the same underlying data to ensure accurate room availability. Simply speaking, if a room is booked online you won’t need to worry about the front desk clerk booking the same room for a phone-in or walk-in guest. If you configure multiple rooms below each room type, the next guest will still have the ability to reserve the same room type, offering you complete inventory flexibility.

REAL-TIME PAYMENTS

MOHOBOOK integrates with Stripe, Square and Cornerstone, leading processing companies for those who wish to facilitate real-time payment transactions. For some properties, collecting payment information is not a high priority therefore you can suppress the payment screen entirely.

In this case, everything is identical minus a prompt to enter payment details. Room availability continues to be accurately synced, and all other features remain available providing a streamlined booking experience.

GUEST CONFIRMATIONS

Whether it is a phone-in booking, a walk-in booking, or an online booking, the guest and the property both receive an email detailing the reservation, headed by a unique reservation number. Along with this information, the property’s cancellation policy is stated to ensure the guest is fully aware of potential charges in the event of a no show.

UNLIMITED EVERYTHING

Unlike traditional booking systems, you are not burdened with limitations and revenue scales that drive up your monthly usage fees. Instead, MOHOBOOK is licensed on a per website basis. This means once you purchase your license, you are free to generate as many bookings as you possibly can, whether it be online bookings or phone-in and walk-in bookings.

Nor are you restricted by the number of rooms or guests you maintain. Everything is unlimited. This is an important difference between hosted solutions or limited licensing versus owning an unrestricted software license. MOHOBOOK was designed to offer as much freedom as possible based on an upfront, one-time modest cost. We encourage you to compare your options in this space to realize how much of a benefit this truly is.

BOOKINGS ON THE FLY

Handling phone-in and walk-in bookings is a breeze with the single-page “Add New Booking” screen inside your Frontdesk. This is especially important for guests who want a smooth, speedy check-in after a long drive, or who have limited time when phoning in a reservation. Creating the booking and checking them in (assigning a room number) takes less than a minute on average.

BLOCK ROOMS

Having the ability to block rooms is an integral part of any good booking system. Let’s say you know that you’ll be accommodating a large group on certain dates, you may want to block specific rooms well in advance so that your regular guests have ample warning and alternatives.

Or, you may be renovating a handful of rooms, and you need to prevent accidental bookings while you’re under construction. This feature can also be used hand in hand for long term guests without a definite departure date, especially guests who were staying with you prior to the implementation of your new booking software. Or, you may have special payment arrangements for a long term guests, and would prefer to treat this scenario outside of the normal booking environment. There are many reasons why a property owner may want to block specific rooms.
