protel proudly presents: bookatonce public premiere at ITB Berlin 2009
The attractive interface proved especially popular. "Even I can understand this!" was the surprised reaction from an older lady who after a few minutes had already grasped the interactive room plan's mode of operation. Other visitors allowed their enthusiasm free reign: "cool & sexy" was one Frenchman's take on the new application - he then expressed the desire to get to work immediately!
And the novel SaaS (Software as a Service) solution - no need for additional hardware, complex installation or expensive training - allows just that, a huge plus for bookatonce. The web-based application is simply launched with the Internet browser - protel handles maintenance and updates, without requiring the user's involvement.
At times, the free basic version's range of functions elicited something approaching disbelief. It took repeated assurances to convince one Panamanian visitor that he would only be charged if and when he personally profited from bookatonce, that is, only once a guest reserved a room over the bookatonce online booking function on his/her website. "That's fair!", he finally concluded.
