If independent hotels want to compete with international chains, they need the right tools. Dashbell is one such tool, providing small hotels and resorts with all the features necessary to accept online bookings, payments, and out-of-the ordinary guest requests. Dashbell also serves as a reporting and analytics tool, letting business owners know where they can reduce costs to improve the bottom line.
Enter the name of your hotel to get started using Dashbell, then upload your room availability information and rates. Dashbell will provide you with a widget to add to your website to start accepting online bookings right away. Travelers who visit your website from anywhere in the world can make reservations in real-time, without going through travel agents or waiting for manual confirmations via phone, and they can pay with their credit cards directly through the online platform. Dashbell syncs these paid reservations with your web-based calendar, making it easy to see how many reservations are pending, confirmed, or cancelled on any given night.
Dashbell collects reservation data and uses it to help inform a hotel’s pricing and marketing programs. Hotel owners can use Dashbell to identify popular date ranges, and then adjust their prices to capitalize on those peak periods. Hotel owners can also use the platform to quickly create promotions or discounts, as a way to boost occupancy during slower times of the year.
