Christmas has come early and Bookeasy is excited to advise that next Wednesday night at approximately 9pm AEST, 9th December 2015 will see the release of the second phase release of Bookeasy's transition towards a new, exciting, user friendly and fully responsive theme coming to all Tourism Centre Bookeasy consoles!
Changes to the system once Phase 2 has been deployed will include a major re-styling of the Bookeasy Staff Console main menu dashboard, providing a fully responsive layout with easier access to the most common tasks right at your fingertips.
Bookeasy also understands that for those of you coming into a very busy season, this may or may not be the most appropriate time for change. The reality is that there's not one time of year that will suit all clients, however the good news is that Bookeasy has provided everyone an option to switch back to the original layout (Classic Menu) for a period of time if desired.

As with all previous releases, rigorous testing has been conducted over the past 3 months in an attempt to streamline this Phase 2 migration and ensure full functionality is maintained. Browser compatibility remains the same, although Bookeasy highly recommends updating your browser to its latest version (full information on Bookeasy browser support can be found here).
