Become a profitable international travel business overnight
accommres, a new online reservation system, offering
multi-lingual and multi-currency capabilities, together with an excursion,
activity and attraction booking facility, has been launched by Carlisle-based
e21Software. It's ease of set-up and use allows anyone with a hotel,
guesthouse, yacht, caravan or holiday property, to become a profitable
international travel business with minimal investment and IT knowledge.
Many leading High-Street travel brands are in crisis.
Thomson, Lunn Poly and Going Places have all announced dramatic revenue
losses due to a significant shift in the in the way people book holidays.
"People are more confident using the internet which
means anyone in the travel and tourism trade must ensure they are up
to speed with the latest developments in online booking and reservations,"
said Rob Jones, Managing Director of e21Software.
Independent travel using the Internet is on the increase
The growing trend for travellers to become more independent
and willing to book their own travel and hotel accommodation online
puts even more pressure on traditional travel organisations. Websites,
together with online reservation and booking systems have become a critical
sales and marketing tool for anyone in the travel and tourism industry
looking to maintain or increase revenue.
Large hotel chains have been using the benefits of online
reservation systems for many years, however, most small and medium sized
hotels and independent holiday property owners have so far found them
cost prohibitive which has made it difficult to take this new technology
on-board. In addition, the market leading online travel websites work
on a commission-based model which eats away at the profit of the small
hotelier and property owner to the point where it's no longer economically
viable to remain on the sites.
Increased bookings all year round for your hotel or
This has all changed with the introduction of a new online
reservation system called accommres which was launched last month. accommres,
developed by e21Software of Carlisle, is an online reservation system
that works on a flat fee and ongoing subscription basis. Unlike other
systems, it's multi-lingual, supporting up to 15 languages, and multi-currency.
Additional revenue streams for your holiday property
Other online booking systems only deal with property or
room booking. accommres allows the hotel or property owner to create
additional revenue streams to their business by facilitating the additional
booking of excursions, attractions or activities. For example, a holidaymaker
can book a week's holiday at a villa in Spain, a round of golf and car
hire, all in one simple transaction.
This means that anyone with any kind of holiday accommodation
can instantly become an international travel and tourism business. In
the short time since the software's launch, e21Software has been inundated
with orders from hotel and property owners all over the world.

"Providing your hotel, guest house, yacht or holiday
property has a basic website, accommres can work for you. You don't
need any special IT skills, you just install the software and accommres
does the rest. With our system a small family hotel in say, Cornwall
can take online bookings from people in Japan or anywhere in the world
without the worry of language or currency issues," said Jones.
