Winter 2013 Newsletter - The Best Booking Calendar.. Ever


Welcome to the first WebReserv newsletter in 2013.

We are very excited to announce a completely new and redesigned Booking Calendar for your business. The new booking calendar is completely redesigned and rebuilt from the ground up to give your customer's the best booking experience ever - whether they book from their desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone.

As always, we want to thank you for selecting WebReserv as your online booking system. We appreciate your business and look forward to a great 2013.

Best regards,

The Best Booking Calendar... ever

The experience for the customer starts long before they arrive at your business. It starts when the customer visits your website and makes an online reservation. That is why a business with a high-quality, clear and concise website with online reservation capability gets more customers and higher revenue.

To help you get the best looking website and get more customers, we are pleased to announce the arrival of our new Booking Calendar. The new Booking Calendar has been designed to make your website or Facebook page stand out and look absolutely amazing while at the same time give your customers seamless and effortless booking experience.

The new Booking Calendar will officially be released on February 15, 2013, but we invite you preview and try it out today!

Works on everything - including smartphones

The new Booking Calendar is built to work on all computers, tablets and smartphones including iPhone, Android and Windows phones. It doesn't matter if your customer is booking on a laptop or smartphone - the new Booking Calendar will automatically adjust and show your rooms, tours and rentals in the most effective and visually pleasing way possible.

The new Booking Calendar includes a beautiful room/tour/rental list, complete with large thumbnail images, descriptions and - of course - rate/pricing information.

...and show the details, too.

If you don't have a description and picture gallery of each of your rooms/rentals/tours on your website, the new Booking Calendar will help you as well - it now includes a full description page and image gallery.

Availability / Rate Grid

We are excited to offer our new Availability View of the calendar. This is great for your customers to be able to view availability and pricing of all your inventory at a glance.

Colorful choices or use your own

The new Booking Calendar includes a number of color themes that you can choose from to blend with your website’s color scheme. If you can't find the exact color to match your site, not to worry, your website designer can easily customize all the colors in the new Booking Calendar.

Better experience

The new Booking Calendar includes a new and improved Shopping Cart feature that will allow for an even better reservation experience. Customers can easily book multiple rooms, tours, or rentals within the same reservation. In addition, they will be able to log in and view existing reservations.

Try it out today

The new Booking Calendar will officially be released on February 15th, but we invite you to preview it and try out all the new features. In fact, we encourage you to use the system and also give us your feedback.

Since this is a pre-release of the system, there is a possibility that you may run into something that is not working quite right. We're probably already working on it, but we still encourage you to send us a note using the feedback button.

You can preview the new Booking Calendar here:

Do note that the Booking Calendar is connected to the live booking system, so don't make any reservations you wouldn't make in your existing Booking Calendar. Also, please note that the My Reservations and Login buttons are not enabled in the preview.
