New AGENT BOOKING ENGINE!
Bookeasy has launched a new responsive Agent Booking Engine, providing Bookeasy’s destination partners and their commission agents the ability to rapidly increase their online distribution and booking potential.
New "Not Paid", "Paid" and 'Refund Required' Bookeasy Staff Console Reservation search Status Filters
The Bookeasy Staff Console's Reservation Search filters now include "Not Paid", "Paid" and "Refund Required status options.
- The "Not Paid" filter displays bookings that have either no payment, or a part payment (i.e. anything’s that not paid in full).
- The "Refund Required" filter is where the total value of the payments recorded are more than the itinerary value. This could be caused by an overpayment, or when a booking is cancelled but no monies have been refunded yet (so the original payment is sitting there, whereas the value of the bookings have been reduced because of the cancellation).
- "Paid" is where either the value of payments on an itinerary a greater than or equal to the total value of the bookings on an itinerary, or if the itinerary has been "closed".
The logic that determines what’s paid and not paid now checks the value of each booking on an itinerary, and compares that to the total value of payments made on the itinerary (whereas before it looked at the itinerary value and paid value summary). This method now ensures accountability on payments that are processed on an itinerary.
New Report Builder Data Available
Bookeasy's Report Builder now includes 'Insurance Date' and 'Certificate Number' from 'Update Other Details' in the Operator Tables so that these fields can be reported on
Split Payment Auditing & Allocation
When a payment is made in Bookeasy, behind the scenes the system will break the payment up and allocate it to each fee, bond, booking or sale item on the itinerary. Front-end transparency showcasing how Bookeasy has allocated a payment is also provided via a “Payment Breakdown Summary”. Click here to read more.
