Jan. 16, 2008 - PRLog -- Bangalore : IDS Softwares Pvt Ltd, global leader in providing integrated IT solutions for the hospitality industry, has announced the launch of Fortune iBooking, a powerful online reservation tool that can be integrated with any hotel’s website. The Web Booking Engine provides dynamic and instantaneous reservations for potential guests in real-time, 24/7, from anywhere across the globe. The web engine can be integrated seamlessly with the existing Fortune Enterprise / Express / Genie Property Management Systems. The software is a boon to the hospitality industry as almost all hotels are currently dependent upon traditional booking processes.

Unlike the traditional method by which prospective guests are asked to complete a form and then expected to wait for some time before they receive confirmation on their reservation, the hotel's web booking engine allows the guests to book online instantly. Booking confirmation details are generated immediately and can be printed and/or emailed to the guest's email address. Likewise, guests can log onto the website and amend their confirmed reservations or make cancellations if they so wish.

“With online hotel bookings gaining momentum, the hotel website can be converted into a powerful profit center. Prospective guests can now check real-time online reservation engine surpassing the need for traditional channels. They can query, view, and book at their own pace and leisure and from around the world. A booking engine adds an e-commerce tool to your website. You can simply adapt this for your e-business strategy. Our existing and new clients can benefit hugely from this web booking engine,” said Rajesh P. Yadav, General Manager, Sales, IDS Softwares Pvt. Ltd. The company’s clients include ITC Fortune Park Hotels, Royal Orchid Hotels, Ffort Radisson, Ramada and Club Mahindra Holidays of the 1300 plus clientele in their portfolio across the globe.

Apart from being a profit centre in itself, the Fortune iBooking engine ensures that the hotel does not lose out on visitors, reduces administrative, paperwork, and manpower and increases direct hotel-guest interaction. Fortune iBooking can have GDS Connectivity (Optional) with very simple configurations. One can define and control special offers and promotions with a fully customizable ‘Look & Feel’ as the client may wish.
