ibelsa Christmas update

Customer and reservation data are now even easier to handle

The latest update of ibelsa.rooms is now online – automatically and free of charge available to all customers. We have taken into account all requirements that are essential for many hoteliers to enhance their workflow.

One of the new features is the reservation number which can be found in the cockpit, and will be displayed in the different lists as well as in the sidebar of the reservation screen. You can now search either by reservation date or reservation number.

Another feature is the improvement of the invoice management - client and company invoice details. Address modifications with just one click. Now check-ins and check-outs are processed quicker.

We now also have the option to enter an individual text which will only appear on this specific invoice.
Each room reservation provides instant information on the " no show " or "check-out" status of a guest.

We have enhanced our filling widget, which now  indicates by colour code if notes/tasks exist and/or if the status is important.

If a guest changes the room during his stay, the booking can be split. A room can be selected for the first day/s and another room for the following days (e.g the guest's favourite room).

Another new feature is the free entry of the booking source. Previously you could just choose the booking source from a pre-defined list. You can now also make your own entries.

Now it is also possible to copy reservations with just one click to generate a group booking. It has never been easier  to make a group reservation: to copy a reservation simply enter the required number of copies into the pop-up window and then enter the room numbers.

Other changes can be seen in the following functions:

  • The connection key to the Chayns® App for mobile booking in the native     app is located under "My Hotel / web booking".
  • In addition to VAT some countries/regions charge a municipal tax. This additional tax can be defined within the tax classes and can then be added to all products assigned to this tax class. On the printed invoice the municipal tax will be shown separately.
