Are there alternatives to email?



SMS (Simple Messaging System) Module
Email simply is not what it used to be. Spammers have made the guarantee of receiving notifications via email difficult. And, fax is never mission-critical. To make sure you receive notifications of new, modified, and cancelled booking notifications - sent as text messages to your mobile phone - sign up for BookingCenter SMS notification service. This is the only guaranteed notification system any longer. You can customize your settings to be notified for only the actions you desire, such as a new or modified GDS and/or web site bookings.

Pricing
The SMS module is $10 per month for all customers. Then, each message is charged at .10 per message for delivery to a USA-based mobile phone or .20 per message for delivery to a non USA-based mobile phone. The SMS Module is optional to the Desktop PMS, MyPMS, or Management Tool. It can be purchased by calling +1-707-874-3922 x 201 or email sales@bookingcenter.com.
