If you have been waiting for being able to manage multiple rates for the same room with Base7booking, the latest update will make your day.
This has been in on our list for quite some time now, we’ve been craving to deliver it to you earlier. This required us to change most of the logic of our price/rate management, and that wasn’t easy as stealing candy from a baby. This major step is, in fact, the premises of the next upcoming big feature: The Rate Plans. For which we first needed to release the Rate Management.
Here’s what you need to know:
Create different rates for the same category
You can now create multiple rates for the same room category and set the seasonal price for each rate.
That means you can apply different pricing strategies for the same room.
For example, you can set a Corporate rate for company X whom you have a partnership with or define an Early Bird rate for people reserving X months in advance in your hotel.
Note that those rates are only selectable for PMS users for now. A further update will allow creating Rate Plans to distribute them through the IBE and Channel Manager connections.
New friendly filters
We’ve made another enhancement to help you set up your rates in Base7booking. In short, our filters make the view enjoyable. Previously, when you were setting up your prices, Base7booking was showing you a grid with all seasons, extra prices & single prices for every room type. Now you can remove unnecessary noise by deciding what should be displayed.
Here’s how the filters work now:
