With the latest WebReserv release, it is now possible to name your products/rooms/units individually. This allows you to manage and track reservations and utilization at a completely new level. For example, you can track now only what your customer reserves, but you can track exactly what unit is rented out and returned.
To name your products, go to setup -> products and reservation rules -> product details. In the list you can name each product. Typical names are room numbers (for hotels), tag numbers (car and RV rentals), serial numbers (equipment) and so forth.
When a reservation is made, you can quickly see which unit(s) that has been assigned, and if needed you can reassign the units as needed.
Imagine having a system that automatically process credit card payments when a reservation is made. There is no need to spend precious time calling the customer to ask for credit card information and there is no need to manually process credit card payments.
WebReserv can do all that – and much more. First and foremost there is the automated credit card processing feature. Whenever a new reservation is made, WebReserv can automatically process the credit card as part of the reservation. If the credit card is not valid, or the transaction cannot be completed for any other reason, the reservation is refused.
Virtually all common credit cards can be accepted, including MasterCard, Visa, American Express, Discover and many more. You can decide which cards you will accept and which ones you don’t want to accept.
In addition to the automated processing during the reservation process, you can use the ePay Virtual Terminal to process additional credit card transactions, such as payment for additional items or services. The virtual terminal can also be used to process refunds.
WebReserv automatically groups all payments and refunds related to the same reservation code, so it’s easy to keep track of payment activities related to the same customer and reservation. You can see the transactions in the integrated transaction history.
