5 great integrations of the WebReserv booking calendar

Posted on Updated on

weeblyIf you are new to WebReserv, and are working on setting up your account, you may be asking yourself a few key questions.

How complicated is the calendar integration? How much can I customize the calendar to match my web design? Should I embed the calendar or make it show in a new tab? Should I add it to an existing page or should I create a new one? These are important questions, and very appropriate to consider.

After all, your webpage is the pillar of your business, and you need to make sure the booking calendar meshes well with the design. First of all, if you are unsure on how to integrate the calendar into your website, we recommend you review our documentation, How to integrate the booking calendar to your webpage and Customizing the Booking Calendar for further customization needs. In addition to these helpful guides, we also believe that, as the saying goes, “a picture is worth a thousand words”.  So, we would like to share with you some of the best integrations of 2014. Have a look and get inspired!

The wait list, a great ally for tours

Posted on Updated on

14637446_mAs a tour company, having your tours completely booked on any given day is a great thing.  This means your tours are popular and people enjoy what you have to offer.  On the flip side, it also means that you often have to turn customers away that want to reserve a time that has been booked.  Then, on the day before the scheduled tour, if you receive an unexpected cancellation, that will leave you with open spots that you cannot fill.  The result is that you have lost revenue and potential customers.

WebReserv brings you a new feature that will help you in those situations. With the wait list, customers can sign up to be notified if a booked tour becomes available, or if new time slots are added.  Plus, the notifications to your customers are automatic, so no extra work is needed on your part.  The wait list feature is currently only available for schedule-based reservations, and you must be using Booking Calendar 2.0. A future version will include a wait list for hourly, daily and nightly reservations.
