The first UK hotel booking system to integrate with BookingSuite by Booking.com
Designed to fill your rooms
Profitable online booking, at last.
Welcome Anywhere Plus includes online booking for your hotel website as standard. No commission fees, no setup costs and no headaches. We’re big advocates of the hotel website, and that’s why we won’t charge a penny for bookings taken via yours. It should be your most profitable source of online bookings, and the mobile-ready Welcome Online booking facility will help make it so.
It’s where you spend a lot of your time, therefore it’s only right that we have put a great deal of effort into the booking chart. Welcome Anywhere Plus includes precise filtering options which enable you to narrow down your availability view to meet the requirements of your guests. Add to that group bookings, detailed house lists and quick glance stats for occupancy, and you have a system which is designed to make you more productive.
Our online booking system is ready for any device a guest may have to hand when researching your property. Desktop computers, tablets, smartphones – you name it, and they’ll be able to check your availability, rates and place bookings quickly.
Realise the revenue potential of your Facebook profile by adding our booking button and pay NOTHING for the bookings you receive.
Divert returning guests away from costly agency websites and tempt new guests by offering enticing discounts for booking directly via your website.
Take advanced payments for bookings via any one of the merchants we work with: Worldpay, PayPal, Barclays ePDQ, Sage Pay and SecureTrading. Welcome Anywhere also offers fully PCI-compliant credit card storage.
Welcome Anywhere Plus has gone global; its billing system can be tailored to your operating currency.
For freedom & total flexibility
Portable reservation chart:
Welcome Anywhere Plus will work on any web-connected PC, Mac, tablet or smartphone in the world. Although you can leave Welcome Anywhere Plus to sell your rooms for you, it will always be there when you need it, wherever you are. Leave the office, but never leave your reservation diary.
No Software Installation
Welcome Anywhere Plus is fully web-based and hosted by us. That means no software installation and, as a result, unlimited access to the system from as many devices as you wish, at no extra cost – you simply need a web browser and an internet connection.
Welcome Anywhere Plus is backed up automatically for you and it happens silently, therefore you’ll never have to worry about a backup again, nor be interrupted when one is required.
Unlike many online bookings systems, ours can be fully branded to match your existing website, offering a seamless booking experience for guests. Welcome Anywhere Plus is equally configurable, enabling you to fine tune your booking chart and user experience for reception staff.
Feature rich and well connected
Channel Management: Let something else do the reacting.
Welcome Anywhere Plus includes channel management as standard and offers automated links to Laterooms, Expedia and Booking.com. That means you’ll never again have to manually update multiple websites with your availability and rates. Bookings are also automatically allocated a room without you having to lift a finger.
Welcome Anywhere Plus is also certified for TripAdvisor’s TripConnect platform, offering guests the ability to check live ability and rates and book direct when researching your property.
Boost Your Exposure
Welcome Anywhere Plus can be linked to Laterooms, Booking.com, Expedia and TripAdvisor at no extra cost. You’ll never have to update multiple websites ever again. Or worry about overbooking.
Rate Management Made Easy
In Welcome Anywhere Plus, you can easily set up and manage your standard tariff, special offers and seasonal packages and respond instantly to rate changes with the daily rate over-ride feature. To add extra temptation for direct booking, you can create discount codes for guests to use on your website.
Watch your database of previous guests grow effortlessly and export it to a CSV file for use in third party e-marketing applications such as Mailchimp. Integrated postcode search makes address entry effortless and error free.
Keeping In Touch
Easily configurable e-mail and SMS* messaging lets you communicate automatically with guests, both before and after their stay.
A Warm Welcome
Welcome Anywhere Plus includes advanced guest profiling, enabling you to record important information about each customer beyond their contact details. Their favourite room, perhaps, or dog’s name; a fantastic way to say ‘we remember you!’ and provide up-selling opportunities for reception staff.
Managing the Books
Welcome Anywhere Plus includes a host of back office reporting, billing and ledger account features all designed to save you time, keep your business organised, and help you plan for the future.
An absolutely essential tool for any hotel which has credit agreements with business customers. Welcome Anywhere Plus enables hotel staff to post guest bills to company ledger accounts, manage the handling of payments, send statements and run aged debtors lists.
Advanced Guest Billing
You can do so much more with guest bills in Welcome Anywhere Plus. Charges can be automatically diverted to different rooms (super handy for group bookings), invoice folios enable you to have a limitless number of invoices within one (very useful if a business guest needs a separate bar bill!), and with a single click you can produce a full pro forma invoice.
Welcome Anywhere allows users to create invoices which are not tied to bedroom reservations. Examples of putting non-resident billing to work could be for table accounts in your bar, miscellaneous sales to non-residents or to simply keep track of your petty cash movements.
End of Day / Week / Month / Year Reports
Welcome Anywhere Plus features detailed sales and banking reports. Sometimes known as ‘night audits’ in other property management systems, these reports will contain every ounce of information required to assess your property’s current financial performance and will help you plan for the future.
Compatible with your
restaurant and bar
Welcome Anywhere Plus is fully compatible with our point of sale system, DPOS. This provides food and beverage staff with the ability to quickly post food and drink bills to resident room invoices, thus avoiding the need to manually enter such charges the morning after and greatly reducing the possibility of user error. Z read financial data is also sent automatically into Welcome Anywhere’s revenue reports, giving you consolidate sales and takings figures, all in one place.
Switch to Welcome Anywhere Plus
effortlessly from your existing system
We appreciate there is always a degree of trepidation when it comes to switching hotel reservation systems and that time is often at a premium for accommodation business owners. For that reason, we can usually import existing customer data and future bookings from a property’s existing reservation system into Welcome Anywhere Plus free of charge.
Just in case
If your internet connection fails, you don’t have to. Our emergency offline list means you’ll never lose time managing bookings. Also, with Welcome Anywhere Plus being mobile-ready, your smartphone can act as a handy back-up.
Welcome Anywhere Plus can be tweaked considerably in order to meet the requirements of almost any accommodation business. For example, you can add up to ten custom fields per booking and customer and fine tune everything from the timings of your room charges to the use of colours and automatic status changes on the Booking Chart. Get under the hood!
