IDS launches new version of online booking engine
Dubai, June 10, 2008
Intellect Data Systems (IDS), a leading company providing integrated IT solutions for the hospitality industry, today (June 10) unveiled its ‘Fortune iBooking version 2.0’.
The second version of the powerful booking engine for online and real-time reservations, was launched by IDS managing director Suresh John at the Hotel Show, which ends today, at the Dubai International Exhibition Centre (DIEC).
Fortune iBooking version 2.0, targeting Middle East markets, has additional features such as corporate, travel agent & sales office login, allocation check and day-wise rates functionality.
“The Middle East region is very important for us as customers here have always been appreciative of IDS products. We felt the Hotel Show would be a perfect platform to launch the second version of Fortune iBooking as it brings most of our customers, potential customers and partners from the hospitality and travel industry in the region together under one roof. We are confident that it will further boost our regional growth,” said John.
“While we have developed the program for smarter reservations, we are already working on upgrading our fairly new products like Fortune Care & Fortune Analytix. The version 2.0 of Fortune Analytix will be completely web-based and will have multi-property consolidation, where as Fortune Care Version 2 will have self-service option for departments with guest history database link and PDA version availability. Our existing and new clients both, will benefit immensely from all these three products” added John.
“Fortune iBooking enables hotel guests to enquire about room availability, select a room and reserve in advance, avoiding disappointment on arrival. This innovative application opens doors to travellers from any corner of the world, instantly.
“It is completely customisable to match the look and feel of a hotel’s website. Detailed room information is available to guests and bookings are automatically confirmed on the web and through email. With complete ownership of guest information, a hotel can also build up its databank for promotion and up-selling of additional services, thus increasing revenue.”
