Public View – Share your reservations with everyone

velumrent public view

Public View is a very special feature in VELUMrent and it is unlike anything we have seen in other booking applications for private property owners.

Here are some common daily problems property owners stumble upon when dealing with guest and reservations:

  • Guests are having a hard time visualizing accommodation availability if it is not immediately free for the requested time period. In such situations owners usually bombard the guest with raw reservation data and hope that guest will understand it and choose another accommodation or date for their holiday.
  • Working with one and more booking agency requires owners to frequently maintain accommodation availability data on their sites. And doing it separately for every agency is extremely challenging.
  • If maintaining accommodation availability isn’t offered by agencies they usually make pre-reservation calls to make sure they can offer requested property to a guest. This back and fort calling also generates big communication expenses on both sides.
  • If reservations are handled by more than one person, and on more than one location, or evan away from reception desk, double bookings may occur if your booking system isn’t always in sync with the central database. Or evan worse – there is no way to check property availability on the go.

Public View feature in VELUMrent easily solves all problems mentioned above. What makes this feature so special is the approach it has to your reservation data.

Public View is basically a feature-less Reservations Calendar. Everything what is great about Reservations Calendar (like reservations and properties grid, advance calendars, time filters, …) is also available in Public View for everyone else with access privileges to use.

However, we removed features for editing and managing current reservations and we also removed all guest information so it can’t be misused by non-company personnel.

By giving your Public View link to guests you give them all the details and tools they need to see and choose which accommodation and when they want to book. You will no more have to exchange several e-mails or telephone calls just to explain them which property and when is available. Guest will immediately see, the same way you see using Reservations Calendar, when he can squeeze his holiday and book it directly from there.

If you introduce Public View link to agencies the results will be evan better. They will always have a real time information about your property availability and will only need to contact you when they have a confirmed reservation. I’m sure they’ll be fond on lowering their communications cost and time as well with the option :).

As you can see Public View feature in VELUMrent will save you a great deal of time and money.

The main reason why Public View is possible and works so well lies in the fact that VELUMrent is a web application with an online database. This ensures that your booking and reservation information is always accessible to everyone you grant access 24/7.
