How SmartHOTEL can change your business – and your revenue
It may sound like a wild dream to get way more travellers to book their stays on your website, so you don’t have to pay so much commission. But did you know that more than 50% of leisure and business travellers visit the hotel’s website after they have found it on a booking site? Today’s guests have a great understanding of the online booking game. That doesn’t mean they’ll automatically book through your website, but they will check it out and compare prices and extras you can offer.
In short: if you can influence these people to book directly through your website, you have to pay a lot less commission. Our Smart Booking Engine does just that. With the Smart Booking Engine, your guests can book a room just as easily on your website as they do on booking sites. Furthermore, you can fully personalise the Smart Booking Engine. And you can add extras (a late check-out, a glass of champagne… ) for guests if they book through your booking system, which can be extra tempting for your guests.

Other ways SmartHOTEL can optimise your workload
Did you know we offer more than just a booking engine? We believe that anno 2022, technology is a super important part of owning or operating a hotel. Why would you spend hours emailing back and forth with clients when this could be done totally automatically? Or why would you hire a receptionist that has to spend twenty minutes checking someone in, when that could be done before and they could be using that time to show the guests around?
At SmartHOTEL, we are here to make your life as a hotelier easier and more lucrative. That’s why we’ve also launched SmartConnect for Payment, that automatically charges payments for online and offline bookings through your PMS. That means you can spend more time on things that are truly important.
