While everyone else has been starting the new year with gym memberships and dryathlons, the Welcome Anywhere team has been working hard on some exciting new updates to our property management system.
If you’re an existing Welcome Anywhere user, these new features and improvements will make your day run just that little bit smoother and help you deliver the best guest experience.
In-app discount codes
It has long been possible with Welcome Anywhere to offer online bookers discount codes, but you can now do the same with bookings you take over the phone or at the reception desk.
This means you can apply the same discount codes you use for online booking during the booking enquiry process. The same goes for existing bookings; you can simply choose an existing discount code and make changes if required.
This is a great way to provide memorable offers to guests, no matter how they want to book.
Customer alphabet navigation
You can now navigate your customer list in super-fast fashion via the handy new alphabet list at the top of the screen (previously, you had to type in the first letter of the alphabet in the search bar - we thought that was a bit long-winded).
Sometimes, it’s the small things that make a big difference, isn’t it?
Column ordering on tables
Welcome Anywhere will now let you order your favourite lists and reports by column. Simply click the column heading to cycle between ascending and descending order.
This makes sorting your reports and lists fast and convenient and adds yet another level of customisability to an already feature-packed reporting system in Welcome Anywhere.
We’d love to hear what you think about each feature in Welcome Anywhere. Now, users can give us the thumbs-up or thumbs-down on specific features - just look for the green and red thumb icons in the left-hand main menu!
We’re not stopping there, either. Welcome Anywhere users will soon have access to ‘feature voting’, enabling them to vote for their favourites from a list of planned updates.
This will also allow people to submit their own feature requests and is part of our ongoing commitment to continually improving the Welcome Anywhere PMS.
We haven’t finished there!
There’s lots more exciting features and updates in the works for Welcome Anywhere.
In the coming weeks and months, you can expect the following:
- some key changes and improvements for the mobile online booking engine;
- auto-deposit payments;
- improvements to in-app payments;
- upgrades to the Booking Chart;
- an advanced Dashboard;
- yield management;
- upgrades to reporting; and
- lots more!
Stay tuned and keep an eye on your email inbox if you're an existing user - we’ll keep you posted as soon as the new functionality goes live.
