HTI’s Fully Integrated Internet Booking Engine (IBE) Powered by eRes and Nebula
BookNow is your very own internet booking engine – ideal for individual properties as well as hotel chains (multi-property bookings). The new age traveller wants to find information quickly and easily and to transact immediately based on their search results – on desktop, tablet or mobile devices at any given time.
BookNow was also chosen by Google Hotel Ads as their first technology partner in Africa, so join now to take part in the Google Hotel Ads program.
Choose BookNow for our easy to use, content rich booking engine and accept payment on-line based on your business rules.
Convert more with Google via your public facing booking engine and take on-line payment via various payment gateways! This is fast becoming an imperative component of your business. This is generally your cheapest channel, so you need to offer your guests a seamless and easy to use option via your brand website.
Your point of sale must always be available to potential guests – your 24/7 global marketplace. By using our easy 3 or 4-step interactive booking experience (depending on whether or not you have services enabled via your booking engine) you can achieve this and be relevant at all times.
Ensure you present the appropriate version to all potential bookers based on the device they are using to book your hotel. BookNow makes sure this is possible, and will render based on the screen size and OS.
Customizable to suit your Corporate Identity to improve the user experience and the booking process.
We work with various payment solutions, predominantly local suppliers of 3d secure technologies in order to minimize the risk to both our clients and ourselves. Payment Partners include Virtual Card Services (VCS), Paygate, iVeri and PayU.
Agent and Corporate Login
BookNow enables all of your Agents and Corporates that you allow to login to BookNow, via the ‘Agent Login’ option. This will present them with their contracted rates based on your business rules – valid rate periods, properties and restrictions.
Offer your key accounts a secure and reliable way to make bookings via your website. If they are ‘on account’ then they will need to settle immediately, but once again this is based on your business rules and commercial agreement you have with each agent. It is all easily managed in eRes making your reservation platform truly accessible 24/7 to all markets.
