"Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving." - Albert Einstein
We've just released our last update of 2014 and fulfilled a wish that many of our German clients had: an easy way to manage the new accommodation tax. This could be interesting for you as well, of course, because we tried to design it as customisable as possible. But the year brought a lot of new things for all our users: two new channel managers, the connection to TripAdvisor and review management systems as well as many small changes that have made your life easier.
Our resolutions for 2015
We'd promised to overhaul the Price Management in 2014, but haven't yet managed to do so, because it's a mountain of work and we wanted to get smaller features out of the way first. The wait has also allowed us to collect more user suggestions, which we added to our plans! One such suggestion was allowing net prices (with tax added at the bottom), which we will make easier with the new management.
There are other things on our to-do-list, of course. There is, for example, the connection to payment terminals which would make accepting credit or debit cards even easier. We'll also take a look again at the Accounting Export function to make it compatible with other formats.
The first thing we'll release in 2015 is the connection to Siteminder as our fifth channel manager. This will make a lot of our international clients happy, if the requests piling up in our tickets system are any indication. The online booking system also awaits a few changes, which will make it better for mobile users.
We'll also make changes to our online shop so it'll be easier to navigate and we'll introduce a new license stage for up to 10 units for the very small businesses.
