Seekom’s new and improved booking engine is here

Our enhanced front-end booking screen is now available to all users.

This upgraded booking screen makes it easier for your guests to select multiple rooms and optional extras when paying for accommodation and is designed to work like a dream on mobile devices.

We've developed this enhanced functionality with the support of a group of Seekom users from across New Zealand and the United Kingdom who took part in beta testing. Thanks to their feedback we’ve created something pretty special and we’re excited to make it available to you all.

MAKE MULTI-ROOM BOOKINGS AND ADDING EXTRAS EASY FOR GUESTS

The new front-end booking screen allows guests to make multi-room bookings online, without having to phone you, and it also makes it simple for guests to pay for extras – such as a newspaper, breakfast, or any other options you make available.

INCREASE ONLINE CONVERSIONS

The new system has a modern look and performs much better on mobile devices. It reduces the number of steps guests need to take before confirming a reservation, speeding up the process and boosting the number of online bookings you receive.

EMBED WITHOUT IFRAME

If you want to embed the booking screen directly into your website, you now have the option of doing so without iFrames, allowing for more customisation and a seamless fit with the branding of your site.

THE DETAIL

How do I add the new booking screen to my website?

We’ve put together an instruction guide showing you how to add the new front-end booking screen to your property’s website, either using a link or embedded code.

Will the old booking system continue to work?

If you haven’t yet upgraded, the old booking system will continue to work for a while longer. It will be retired on 1 July 2024, so there’s still a bit of time to get the new booking engine set up on your website.

What’s next for the booking system?

We’re committed to making our front-end booking system the best in class and we will continue enhancing it in the weeks ahead. We are working hard on adding a multi property booking option, as well as the ability for you to include custom fields in your booking forms. Watch this space!
