Bookolo Booking Engine is a modern and intuitive booking engine that offers a complex online solution for accommodation facilities of any type and size. At Bookolo, we focus on increasing direct sales, which is why Booking Engine has a wide range of tools to support it.
Bookolo Channel Manager sends prices, availability and restrictions to all your sales channels (e.g. Booking.com) and automatically sends created reservations to your PMS. If set up optimally, Channel Manager will guarantee you the best offer for direct booking.
Bookolo Voucher Shop allows you to sell hotel services in the form of vouchers that you can offer at open and fixed prices or for hotel packages. Voucher Shop can also be used as a standalone module.
In 2022, we made a significant upgrade by switching from our previous booking engine to the Bookolo Booking Engine, resulting in a substantial increase in the number of bookings made through our website. The primary advantage of this transition is the user-friendly booking process for our customers, along with a range of additional features that enhance our interactions with them. This is why I confidently endorse it.
We have been using Bookolo products in our hotel for many years and have been extremely satisfied with the technical quality of the products and the flawless support. The web solution was one of the first and, we are still amazed by its timeless design and concept. Next came the booking system itself, which, according to internal statistics, had an immediate positive impact due to its user-friendliness, simplicity and also due to a greater pull on the gate in the form of direct bookings than what we were used to with our former provider. At the same time, I would like to acknowledge the personal approach from all Bookolo staff, who have been helpful to our team with technical and organisational issues. In particular, the close cooperation in the implementation of each product was important and beneficial.
For myself, I can say that Bookolo is not only a great system that improves based on your needs, but also ga team of great people who are always willing to give you advice. It is a pleasure to work with them.
I have been working with Booking Engine by Bookola for several years. The system is constantly evolving and improving. I appreciate especially its user simplicity, intuitiveness and complexity. It fits perfectly with the minimalistic design of our website. In addition to BE, we also use a Voucher Shop and a module for managing wellness reservations. I must also praise praise the great work of the support and the shop, which solves any query in a flash. Switching to Bookolo has saved me a lot of time, freed up my hands in managing packages and quotes and helped with supporting direct bookings.
The cooperation with the Bookolo System is really excellent. Global Payments is a payment service provider, and if a hotel needs to enable immediate payment upon a booking engine, for example, Bookolo actively recommends Global Payments' solution. We appreciate the company's pro-customer approach to the needs of their customers, which can be seen in the fact that they have prepared their system in such a way that deploying the payment gateway is really easy and fast. Our payment gateway is also fully integrated with the Bookolo booking system, allowing for easy transaction management. Last but not least, we value great communication and a personal approach to each customer, values that we also cherish as Global Payments. Bookolo takes an interest in every customer they recommend the solution to and is keen to get it up and running. Their work certainly doesn't end with the signing of a contract. I wish the Czech business environment had more companies like this.
We have been using Bookolo System products, services and modules in our hotel division for several years to our complete satisfaction. The systems are state-of-the-art and dynamically evolving, actively responding to the current stimuli of the rapidly evolving online hotel environment, without which today's hotel cannot function adequately and competitively. In the time we have been using Bookolo, the volume of direct bookings in our hotels has increased several times. Bookolo is intuitive, efficient and simple.
Bookolo? Simply number one! In a market full of different hotel systems, it's not easy to navigate. Here we were impressed by the clear design and at first glance everything we would expect a hotel system to do. After the first meeting it was clear that we were heading in the right direction. As the system admin, I am extremely satisfied with the care and patience of the support. Training, fine-tuning details, consulting over setup and debugging comments or suggestions from our side, all handled quickly and with a very friendly approach. I'm so sorry that everything is already running without the need to contact support :slightly_smiling_face: They are really great! Thank you and wish you many happy clients!
