These are the pricing strategies that will help you convince the user to reserve on your website.
The new version 1.11 of CloudHotelier HRS Engine comes with new features, the most important are the Accelerators. Never heard of them? These are the messages that appear on some reservation portals such as Booking.com that urge the user to make a reservation at that same moment.
THIS IS A BETA RELEASE WITH NO SUPPORT - USE IT AT YOUR OWN RISK
We are pleased to announce the release of the first beta of our new products. This will be the “third generation” series and introduce a brand new version of every extension in our hotel website suite:
We plan to launch the first beta version by the end of this month. A production ready release is espectied in Oct/Nov 2015. The new release will include a new version of Cloud Admin Panel (that we will call Cloud Admin Pro), and a new version of the website building suite:
The new CloudHotelier Admin Pro panel will be open source, so it can be used as a normal Joomla extension (although you will continue to have the new product as managed Cloud service also).
With the release of CloudHotelier 3.1.7 we have introduced the ability to track Google Analytics e-commerce conversions, every time a reservation is processed on your hotel website.
With this new feature you will be able to obtain the conversion reports using Google Analytics, amongst other useful information.
The new version, that we plan to release in mid 2015 will provide the hoteliers the ability to set multiple rates for one single room. This will give the hoteliers more control over rates and simplify the availability update process.
Joomla 3.4 is stable so you should update your Joomla. If you use one of our Joomla 3 packs, such as Base, Classic, Minimal, Boutique or Glassy, we recommend tu upgrade your Joomla to be ready for the upcoming releases.
We are currently preparing a new version of the Cloud Admin Panel administration system, a new version of the Joomla client CloudHotelier Booking Engine and a new generation of templates based on the UIkit framework.
Version 2.7.0 is now available for download. This is our last major release for Joomla! 2.5 series, we have been working hard to integrate all new advanced CloudHotelier Admin Panel features, like extras, packs and promotions, and enhanced room information, like long text and image gallery. This new version includes new views: Offers and Packs, My Booking, and a new module, Offers.
In few days, we will perform some changes in CloudHotelier Admin Panel. This changes respond to the preparations for the release of the new version 2.7, that will be released in the following week.
Version 2.5.0 of CloudHotelier is now available for download. This new version incorporates a new single hotel view: availability calendar. With this new view your users can easily check the availability and prices of different rooms. Also, when a user does not find availability, there's automatically displayed the improved availability calendar, so he or she can navigate through months of the year to find available dates.
You can upgrade installing the cloudhotelier_1.5.0.zip package or via Joomla! control panel auto-updates.
