RoomRaccoon launches group booking solution for independent hotels

RoomRaccoon, a hotel management system for independent hotels, has released a globally available Room Allotment solution to help accommodation businesses simplify the process of selling and managing group bookings.

The Room Allotment functionality aims to make it easier for hotels to work with travel agents, corporate groups and event planners by efficiently managing group bookings. The interface allows for quick updates on room allocations, which eliminates the risk of double bookings.

“Manually issuing room allotments to individual bookers, travel agents, and corporate clients is costly, time-consuming, and subject to error,” Nadja Buckenberger, the CPO and founder of RoomRaccoon, said in a statement. “Our new Room Allotment feature automates the process for you, driving increased revenue and operational efficiency.”

The Room Allotment feature includes a custom booking engine window that can be shared with guests before they travel. Guests can assign themselves rooms from the allotted reservation and benefit from the system’s automated upsell feature. This generates more ancillary revenue for hoteliers while creating a more personalized and luxurious stay for guests.

In addition to the new Room Allotment feature, RoomRaccoon recently released enhancements to its booking engine. These include Raccoon Price Checker, a comparative guest-facing tool to increase direct bookings; and a Multi-Property Booking Engine where guests can view availability across multiple properties from a single screen.
