Introducing Our Booking Engine's Makeover

Evolutions in the hospitality industry are ever-changing and thought-provoking. And when we had a chance, we planned to turn over new leaf in our booking engine.

Booking Engine's Makeover

A touch of responsive UI, a pinch of big-league add-ons and a wee bit simplified functioning.

That's all our booking engine needed to get better and finer. By and by, improving user experience brought in the dire need of a bright-eyed mind set and unconventional thought process from our end.

With varied requirements and growing demands of each business type in the industry, it was truly a challenge to manage all of them through one interface. We directed our endeavors to build a booking system which was not only simple and eccentric but also one which was operative from all kinds of devices. With a responsive user interface, what we created will flex and adapt to the size of screen it's been viewed and accessed on.

We started afresh with a new outlook, taking one step at a time and eventually pulling off the release of a world-class booking engine.

Breaking The Mundane Barriers - eZee Annual Picnic 2016

If you think adventure is dangerous, try routine. Its lethal.

Our regular slow-paced lives occasionally send us in boredom blues, where we crave for an adventure or something which makes us look forward to go to work, and move ahead like a wildfire.

When TripAdvisor Accidentally Disrupted Your Hotel's ROI

Getting included in business listings poses as one of the most effective inputs towards increasing your ROI, and widen your hotel's reach in local and international spheres. And TripAdvisor being a major one of them, it's obvious that even its minute fallout will result in a huge impact in your hotel's ROI.

Tripadvisor change affecting hotels' ROI

So when TripAdvisor switched to a secure server environment, it affected a hotel's ability to track traffic from the business listings, resulting in the traffic being included as Direct one by Google Analytics. Naturally, it created a havoc for the listed hotels. Of Course, TripAdvisor alerted the hotels immediately and began working on to solve the setback at the earliest. The solution which TripAdvisor came up with was to replace the links on your listing with special tagged links. And thus, you will be able to track your website traffic coming from TripAdvisor, making it once again easier for you to measure your output and plan your strategy for business listings.

The primary thing to note here, is a minor change on TripAdvisor's part had the ability to alter the course of any hotel's Google Analytics. At times like these, it's a must for a hotelier to know what effect a business listing change may bring to your website traffic as well as to your hotel's yield.

So, when we eZeeites left for a 2-day picnic, bearing in mind the troubles we might face, we made sure not to forget our users, who trusted on us and made it possible.

picnic blog/email/case study

Our picnic destination - Hill Zill Resort in Bordi, was truly a part of nature's abode. Aware of the hurdles we might face on account of the resort's far-off location; we were prepped with a bunch of back-up plans to keep our 24x7 support running. And we did it. Against all odds, our team managed to surpass the blockades and gave an excellent support service. Such that, our users could not differentiate in our support given from hundreds of kms away.

Fascinated by our service and dedicated efforts for our users, the resort's owner found himself asking for our product demonstrations. Such was our charm, that he went on to adapt eZee solutions for his resort. The key takeaway of this incident was that, despite something completely informal and several surmounting troubles, we managed to win over hearts with our top-notch service.
