We are pleased to announce that a new version of the WebReserv Booking System has been released. The latest version includes a number of improvements.
Improved handling of weekend rates
The new version has improved handling of weekend rates for both nightly reservations as well as schedules. You can define your weekend settings under Setup – Business Information – Advanced Options.
Recently WebReserv launched its new booking calendar 2.0. The calendar has been designed to give an enhanced solution to the needs of small businesses. It comes with an updated, responsive design that works well on all devices, a shopping cart that allows customers to book several items at a time, and fresh new look and feel. The new calendar is here to stay! WebReserv is now working on translating its new version into the main European languages. The new calendar already supports online bookings in French and Spanish.
The WebReserv system allows you to add multiple booking calendars to your website. Adding the French and Spanish languages allows businesses that have a multi language website to show the booking calendars in a different languages.
“We have many businesses in our European Market that need to process bookings in the most common languages in Europe, such as English, Spanish or French.”, says Martin Israelsen, founder of WebReserv. He continues, “It’s great to be able to provide the system in other languages so that people in Spain or France can make bookings without effort.”
“We have numerous development plans for the system, but since our launch in Europe, we have been focused on making the system work well with European currencies, languages and payment providers, trying to make WebReserv as complete as possible.”, concludes Martin Israelsen.
