Jomres is a robust, feature rich hotel booking system that’s been constantly developed, full-time, for 8 years. It is the absolute pinnacle of the Joomla hotel booking systems, nothing else even comes close.
Recently added features :
* Media Centre. Ajax control image uploading.
* Array caching, for huge performance gains.
* VIES VAT number validation. Your European customers can now store their VAT numbers, and if you use the subscription or commision functionality (extra) then invoices do not include VAT if that’s appropriate.
* QR codes that are printed on the confirmation emails, allowing receptionists to scan guests in and see the bookings while on the move.
* Google map layers. See the weather/traffic/transit/cycling/panoramio layers in the built-in Gmaps.
* Added a tap to call button to the (bootstrap) property header template, which is viewable when on a phone. Allows phone users to call hotels directly.
The core system is free, if you want a simple booking system for your hotel booking site then the core system is all you need to get up and running. If you decide you want to add functionality to your hotel later on then you can upgrade to Jomres Solo, Silver or Gold to allow you to install some of the many plugins available.
Features of the free, core system:
Intelligent, ajax driven booking form. Equally suited to enable booking hotels, B&Bs and individual properties like apartments and villas. Over the years we’ve fine-tuned the booking process to make it as simple yet as powerful as possible. If the guest’s not ready to book right away, they can contact the hotel directly through a form instead.
Property/hotel management is done via the frontend, no need to worry about Aunt Betty having access to the backend of your site and breaking something. Site managers can configure users as basic property managers, so Super Property Managers can have many configuration options, and basic managers will have far fewer options to worry about.
Unlimited images can be uploaded to create a slideshow of your hotel.
Reviews are integrated into the core of the system, let your hotel’s customers speak for you.
Fully automatic exchange rate conversion functionality that is sensitive to the location of the site visitor, automatically choosing the exchange rate that’s most appropriate for them.
A huge number of settings, if you want to use them. Out-of-the-box Jomres works fine, but if you want to tweak how it works, that’s ok too.
Hotel/Property Management System functionality.
Detailed invoicing functionality that make it clear to both your guests and hotel managers what they’re paying for.
Google mapping used throughout, map your hotel precisely using our simple yet intuitive drag’n’drop feature.
