HELLOWORLD has unveiled an “extreme makeover” of its Ready Rooms agent platform, including a host of enhancements to provide consultants with more flexibility when booking.
The update was revealed to Helloworld Travel members at the group’s conference in Adelaide on Sat, with the company’s head of wholesale Cinzia Burnes saying “we have listened to agents’ feedback and put a lot of time, effort and resources into this new site and have no doubt it will deliver great results for everyone using the upgraded functionality and capabilities”.
Key features give consultants the ability to amend partially paid bookings by dates, changing hotels, working on a booking at different points in time and adding transfers or day tours closer to departure.
Search functionality has also been improved with a better map search, hotel name search, filters with a nightly rate price slider and the ability to hide prices in a customer view.
Transfers and activities have been separated to make it easier to search for add-ons, and it’s also now possible to use the platform to request group rates for 10 or more guests.
There’s also a completely new responsive user interface.
Helloworld is encouraging agents to use the platform with $25,000 in “Trip Dollar” prizes up for grabs between now and 25 Jun including weekly giveaways per region, national agency prizes & a Fiji holiday for two for the top selling consultant across Australia.
