Hotel Booking Software

Reseller Opportunity for Web Developers with Small Hotel / B&B Clients
iBex is a feature rich online booking system driven by a sophisticated, integrated front desk / electronic diary. This allows your clients to sell their rooms on their own website in real time, with split second availability - allowing guests to book online with instant confirmation. Experience tells us that significantly more people will book in this way - parting with their hard earned cash, than would ever bother to fill in a simple html enquiry form.
Before we even discuss the functionality, let's just add into the mix the optional ability to interface with the leading sales channels / online travel agents, . Now you have not just a money making proposition, but a huge time saver for your hotel clients. iBex can push rates and availability, and pull reservations from booking.com, Expedia, Late Rooms, Venere, hotel.info, and a host of others with lastminute.com due later in the year - the list is growing!
History.
iBex isn't new, it has been evolving over the last 4 years but the addition of the channel manager functionality has brought rapid growth, in fact a doubling of our user base to just under 500 properties in the last 12 months alone.
Technology.
Built on the Postgres database at it's core, iBex is written in php by Kiwi's (and a Scotsman - he's the real brains behind the operation!) and is a web based application, accessed via a browser. So, it is platform neutral and unlike a lot of our competition in the market place, doesn't require a large capital investment. Typically a Windows based system with similar functionality could cost £2000+, with maintenance contracts on top. The functionality it offers is awesome, and as developers you will marvel at this, probably even more than the hotelier!
The web booking engine sits in an iframe, and can be customised to match the look of the host site. To the guest, they really *are* booking with the hotel, not a third party.
Cost to the end user?
We price the product broadly speaking based on the room count of the property. It's a flat monthly fee that never changes. We don't charge any commission on bookings whatsoever - some similar products often charge around 5% per booking. A case study of one of our recent converts has 11 bedrooms and was paying between £300 and £500 in commission every month. They now pay £52 / month. For 20 bedrooms the base price is £72 / month.
What's the deal?
We are interested in building partnerships for the long term. iBex will give you the edge to win website design business from small hotels, B&B's and Guest Houses. iBex is the ultimate up-sell if you are pitching for a website to a hotel with 8 - 25 bedrooms. It turns your 'public face' of the property into the very engine that drives their whole business, managing all their reservations, generating reports, invoices, reconciling payments.
Our background is in web development; we've been bashing together bespoke database driven solutions for ecommerce clients for the last 10 years in one guise or another. So, we completely understand your starting point when pitching for work like this. We've been responsible for iBex in the UK for over 2 years now, and have plenty of experience to be able to guide you through selling iBex to hotel clients.
Of course, we want to reward you financially, and have 3 reseller options available which we are happy to expand on if this piques your interest.
