Booking Factory overview

Booking Factory is an online hospitality property management solution that offers features such as front desk management, reservation management, and marketing automation. The software targets small properties and independent hotels and can be accessed on any mobile device including smartphones and tablets through the mobile web app. Booking Factory also helps hotels and guest houses to market their business as well as avoid possible over-bookings.

Booking Factory enables front desk employees to print invoices customized to match the branding of their property. Booking Factory’s direct booking engine lets customers book a room directly from the hotel’s website and can connect with sales channels including Expedia and Booking.com to automatically update inventory levels and room prices across all platforms.

The software offers a promotions system that can be incorporated to the hotel’s website to encourage customers to recommend the property to their friends and family. The solution also allows independent hotels to retarget customers who visited their website but did not book a room through Facebook or email.

Additional features provided by Booking Factory include SEO optimization, membership management, and a hotel website builder. The solution helps hotels to reduce their dependency on Online Travel Agents (OTA) and offers Facebook plugin and open APIs for integration with third-party applications.

I own this hotel and was using another program to manage it. When I changed to this program, all the workflows were much easier and more efficient. However, there are some flaws. Sometimes the program doesn't work and it has a lot of errors. You click on the program and nothing happens. I think it's the problem with the cloud storage of the program. The support team in Thailand are slow. Sometimes, it seems like they don't know the functions of the program as I asked and they told me they would find me answers. And trust me, they take forever to answer. All in all, it's worth the month and it makes my hotel management more efficient. ps. Since the customer support in Thailand is very slow, I asked if there was a manual so I can find the answer myself, they said no. Oh, well. - efficient level - makes property management very easy - automatically linked with OTA; booking.com, agoda.com, expedia.com

The customer service team has been super helpful and efficient in setting up our rather complex booking system for our business property in France. So much more effective and flexible than other booking systems we have used in the past and at a very reasonable cost! We were able to completely tailor the booking system to suit our business needs which other booking systems do not offer- we tried MANY! The booking system has everything we need on one platform whereas previously we had to juggle various websites and calendars making bookings very complicated- now colleagues and customers can book with ease and have access to all the information they require for their trip. We will be using The Booking Factory for all future properties. Thanks again for your time and patience!

A fully functional, affordable and easy to use booking system that integrated seamlessly into our websites Not only is it packed full of valuable features, the team at Booking Factory are incredibly proactive, helpful and patient. The fact that it seemlessly integrates in to any website you build is a key feature for customer usability.

Booking Factory is very responsive to questions which I like. I find the back-end user friendly, I just wish there was an easy way to move a customer when they have a room change 2-3 days into their stay. The booking side, where my guests go, could use a little work. If my customer is using a promo code, they have to know to look in the upper left hand corner - then a pop-up box says an offer has been unlocked but it doesn't tell you what the offer is. When you go to the room type you'd like to book you see the unlocked special offer, as well as every other offer currently running - I wish it only showed the offer they'd unlocked with the special code. After that it is user friendly. Also, promo codes are case sensitive - I wish they weren't.
