Inbound Emails & SMS Inbox

In addition to sending emails and SMS, NewBook is now capable of receiving and storing emails and text messages from guests. YES, that means 2 way communication, making it easier to track and respond. You have the option of configuring a number of email inboxes from within NewBook to correspond with your existing email addresses. Emails and text messages will automatically be assigned to bookings, guests and other areas of the system where possible and can be attached manually from the inbox.

Automated Text Messaging

The interactive SMS feature allows guests to respond to messages from a property the same way they would respond to an SMS from a friend. When an SMS is received it automatically saves into the booking file for the guest, a notification will appear on your NewBook home page to let you know that you have an unread message. Staff are then able to respond to these message directly from NewBook. The interactive SMS has created an opportunity to personalise the guest experience through an array of features.

The main features include sending automated SMS messages to guests prior to check in & out, departure surveys, promotional upgrades, room security codes and instant weather warnings.

Built in surveys

Built in surveys is a great way to gather information on the operations of accommodation.

You can set a preferred date and time to send the survey with complete automation. Once the customer has completed the survey the results drop into NewBook. You are then able to run reports, set goals and report on your Net Promoter Score. NewBook survey’s even have a feature which will allow you to send automated responses based on the overall rating given by the guest. You can now also send a 2 way SMS survey to the guest after departure to contribute to your Net Promoter Score automatically.

Staff Induction information can be uploaded to NewBook, this feature allows Employees to upload information about their company (Policies & Procedures etc.) for new employees to access and view. Employers can create questionnaires designed to assess and improve employee knowledge. There is also a reporting feature that will give the Employer the ability to analyse the results/statistics of those who have completed the questionnaires.

NewBook Broadcast

NewBook has created a live Broadcast which will allow you to display leader boards internally around your offices to show statistics e.g. Bookings Placed, Leads Converted, Booking Check Ins/Outs, Goals, Net Promoter Score and so much more.

This has proven to increase staff productivity and can also be used to incentivise employees. We have expanded this innovated feature to be available for all clients including NewBook Corporate.

Cancellation Insurance

NewBook has been working with Chubb Insurance for over 12 months on making cancellation insurance available via NewBook Online. Your guests will be provided with the option to purchase affordable cancellation insurance either immediately via the online booking interface or via email within 24 hours (for telephone or 3rd party OTA bookings). If your guest cancels due to an insured event occurring they can claim their prepaid costs via the insurer rather than contacting your property for a refund.
