Chicago-based Resiada Inc. has rolled out version 1.2 of its room block management software for event planners, destination marketing organizations (DMO/CVB), sport organizations and events rights holders.
“The response from Resiada’s early adopters has been invaluable,” says Jennifer Beatty, managing director, Resiada. “While they’ve been impressed with the Resiada platform so far, we know there’s always room for improvement. Their feedback has helped guide the efforts of our development team to help make room block setup and management easier.”
Key additions to version 1.2 of Resiada include: white labelling, which allows the application to carry an organization or event’s branding; and new API integration capability that allows for the seamless flow of data from an event’s registration site to Resiada’s booking system, which means attendees only have to enter their information once rather than once in the registration site and then in the housing system.
“The ultimate goal for Resiada is to make it simple for other registration solutions to integrate and at the same time, improve the user experience.” says Beatty.
Other updates made to the Resiada application include:
a new array of reports;
Paypal Express Checkout as a payment provider option;
back office payments having the option to use a credit card on file for an individual reservation or group payment;
a default listing of the most frequently occurring hotel amenities such as on-site restaurant, business center, parking, free Wi-Fi, etc.;
and the optimization of the front-end of the site to work with screen reading technology.
