Although the Admin module contains all of the settings that shape the online booking engine, it is also a stand-alone application that can be used to manage your property’s reservations from a web-based interface. One of many advantages 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 in 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.
Your guests start by choosing their check-in and check-out dates. Immediately, a list of available accommodations will be shown to them with the option to select occupants. Next, if enabled, the guest can choose from a selection of options (i.e. meals, services, whatever upsells you would like to offer). 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 and therefore encourage you to try the free demo to see it in action. With a large percentage of Internet traffic shifting to mobile, we have invested significant 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.
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, modest cost. We encourage you to compare your options in this space to realize how much of a benefit this truly is.
Or, you may be renovating one or more 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. There are many reasons why a property owner may want to block specific rooms.
