Ski Centre Booking System: Top 10 Features
BookingLive are your activity ski centre booking system provider specialist. In this blog article we bring you our top 10 most important features required within a booking system for your ski centre or ski resort.
When you are looking to implement any sort of booking software system for your booking needs, you will want to make a checklist of the most wanted items. You can easily find packages online that will suffice your needs, but you will not get the bells and whistles that you are looking for if you do not look at some very specific ideas. The following are the most desired ski centre booking system components that you cannot miss out on if you’re going to purchase a booking system for your ski centre or ski resort.
Top 10 Features
We've compiled a list of the top 10 features ski centres want from their booking system provider. These are:
1) Engaging Website Design
BookingLive work with a number of partners - design and creative agencies including Mango Studio, to create engaging website designs. You can see a number of examples here.
2) Mobile Responsive Design
The volume of bookings on mobile and tablet devices are expected to exceed the volume of bookings on desktop devices by 2015. It is imperative you choose a supplier that will support multi platforms.
3) Photo Gallery
Ski resorts aren’t just about the snow, it’s about capturing an adventure or experience and you cannot do that without compelling imagery. You have to look into images to make sure that you’re moving forward with relative ease. An image gallery feature can work wonders for someone that is on the verge of booking.
4) Call to Actions
Without a call to action that prompt users to book online, you will not get any conversions. With bookinglive, you can choose from over 35 engaging widgets and call to actions with analytics and reporting available to measure the results.
5) Real Time Availability
Make sure your website displays live availability. With our booking system, your ski centre website can display availability via an iframe or via a sub domain or even a wordpress booking widget. That means that if they book a trip, it immediately hits the system and you can track it and place a hold on whatever it is the end user wants.
6) Online Payment
One of the major payment processor online is PayPal. If you don’t have online payments in your booking system, you should. Payments is integral to your ski centre booking system. Check out some of the payment gateways we integrate with.
7) Check-in Customers on Arrival
When customers arrive at your ski centre and they collect their equipment, ski pass and are ready for their first lesson, you can setup an instructor (staff) within BookingLive who can then check-in each customer into a manifest or schedule.
8) Up-sell ski hire Equipment and Extras
Increase your revenue and up-sell equipment and extras during the booking process. Our clients have seen a 40% increase in these sales when offering related products alongside the booking items.
9) Take Accommodation Reservation Bookings
Most ski resorts have some form of accommodation they can offer their customers. We recommend BookingLive when using accommodation and activities or courses. Within BookingLive you can setup packages which trigger automatic discounts
10) Multi-day Bookings with Reminders
Having the ability for your skiers to book multiple lessons or packages on multiple days gives complete control to them during the online booking phase. To decrease the number of no shows, enable email and sms reminders to be sent to your customers x days before their activity or less.
