The Dashboard represents all the important information you need on one screen. An employee with the appropriate security access can immediately see new reservations, urgent tasks and their current status, as well as lists of the most recent check-ins and check-outs and a list of currently available rooms. The employee can filter lists by room type or by property directly at Dashboard. Information at Dashboard is updating in real time without any additional actions of the employees.
The Reservation Board is a visual display of a rooms’ occupancy status presentation. You can select an available room to make a reservation with just one click. All changes in the rooms’ occupancy are displayed in real time to all your users without any additional clicks. You can quickly find the desired rooms using our powerful filtering system. As you fill in guest Information, the application provides suggestion and prompts to speed up data entry. There is no need to enter the same contact information repeatedly, and information about returned guests and their expenditures is kept more accurately. You can plan tasks for your maintenance staff, etc. related to a reservation because the Workorder Management System is integrated with the Reservation system. For example, you can plan for the required number of drivers and cars/shuttles for the guest transfer well ahead of the check-in date…
The Workorder Management System displays information about the existing tasks and problems (cleaning, repairs, customer service tasks, etc.) in real-time to the appropriate employees. Using a flexible system of statuses, priorities and reports, you can optimize the site’s workflow to fit with your internal management processes. Our system sends notifications about assigned tasks to appropriate employees. Also, each employee can see a list of his/her assigned tasks and their status on the Dashboard. Because the Workorder module is integrated with the Reservation Board it is impossible to make a reservation for a unit that is under repair.
You can assign different unit rates for each season, as well as designate special prices for holidays and weekends. Additionally, you can enter in discount codes to change the rate of any particular unit on a particular day. You can also use discount codes to provide loyalty discounts for long-term guests or corporate clients. For specific situations or for special guests, you can assign a custom price.
Also the system supports special pricing rules. You can now setup special discounts for: long stay bookings, early or last minute bookings, stay X nights – pay for Y nights and much more. Each rule can be setup for only a designated stay or booking period if desired.
The system currently supports Authorize.net (US and Canada) and Wirecard (Europe and Asia). Both systems support all major credit and debit cards. All data from the payment forms is transferred via secure HTTPS protocol. So, your customers’ data is kept safe.
Credit cards can be simply validated and no money charged until the guest checks in/out. Or, if you want to collect a security deposit, our system now handles this functionality. You can charge a percentage of the booking amount or the room price times X nights.
Using our flexible reporting module, you can display various data for the time periods you specify. You can setup as many reports as you need and schedule when each report will be automatically generated. You determine what fields should be shown, in what order and how the fields can be searched. You can grant or restrict view access to some reports. You can also control who can add new reports or update existing ones.
Differentiation of authorization for your users is an important part of managing the security of your data. In Colibri, you will be able to assign each employee an access level which determines what aspects of the system the employee can view and/or edit. For instance, you can allow the junior clerk to check-in and check-out guests, but prohibit him from changing reservations, assigning custom rates or to checking out a guest with a non-zero balance.
You can quickly find information about clients, including personal data, contact information and full history of payments using the system’s powerful search system and filters. All data can be saved in CSV format and imported to other popular office applications.
The system allows you to manage your inventory via a user-friendly interface. We used an object replication function and data inheritance to save you time the initial inventory data entry. For instance, adding inventory for 80 units of two different types takes only about 30 minutes.
The system uses https to transfer data. This is the safest way to handle sensitive data and keep it in your hands. Our servers are located behind complex firewalls that are most likely more robust than what you have on your local computers. In addition, all sensitive data is encrypted in our database. Even if an unauthorized user could access our database, they wouldn’t be able to use the data. In fact, our own employees can not see the raw data. System is audited to ensure we are Compliant to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).
The database back-up module operates automatically and does not interfere with the system’s users. We believe these back-ups will never be needed, however, you can be confident that your data is saved at an separate server twice per day and old data can be quickly restored to you.
Our powerful allotment module gives you ability to hold your inventory for only commission-free booking channels. Thus until release date, which you could specify in hours until check-in date, all booking channels will receive zero or limited availability. In other words your rooms will be bookable only or mainly on your website, via reservation board or via our commission-free colibribooking.com portal. Then on release date all available rooms will be automatically released to all other connected booking channels.
Now it only takes a few moments to reach out to recent guests with a customized request for a review. You can personalize the message and let guests know that their feedback is valuable to you. Colibri sends an automatic follow-up email with a Write a Review link to make it easy for guests to respond. After review submitted guest will be redirected to your Internet Booking Engine.
