The MyPMS Release May 5, 2021 included the following Enhancements
We now support Date-Based Taxes within MyPMS and the Channel Manager products. This means that taxes can be setup to have different tax rates between specific dates, allowing for future tax changes to calculate accurate tax pricing. Learn more here.
Tax Exempt Enhancements
BookingCenter added the ability enable Tax Exempt on Multiple Tax Rates at a time, so that 'exemptions' can be set to occur only to Room Rent and/or to all Items posted to all Folios in a booking. Learn more here.
The VRBO network is a major new OTA to our distribution offerings. Focused on vacation rentals, this OTA channel has been growing in popularity base and can now be included in your BookingCenter distribution. From account creation, to image management, to managing seamless and real-time bookings, this interface leverages all the opportunities VRBO makes available to any channel manager. Sign up today and allocate whichever Room/Rate combos you want to this important and growing channel.
Because OTA channels such as Airbnb and VRBO require large images, BookingCenter now supports large-sized images that we automatically re-size for your needs based on where they are needed, saving our customers a lot of time and making image management even easier. Learn more about Adding and Editing images here.
Self Check-in System
In preparation for our launch of Self Check-out, we have added new functionality for mobile Check-Out events and reporting on Check-in events. Available now are:
The ability to visually see which booking was checked in/out via the Tape Chart
When using "Print All Registration Cards", those that were signed online (via the eSigns feature) and this are already "on file" will not be printed out. This should save a lot of paper for users who use eSign and also traditional printed Registration cards.
BookingCenter added Internal MyCard EMV updates to make resolution of 'Bad Batch' events easier to track and manage.
Miscellaneous and Bug Fixes
We changed the Comments "history" link to an Icon to make it more appealing.
Fixed bug with single item images on 4 of our Booking Engine templates (01-04).
Fixed bug when properties were not using guest IDs on their New Booking Window.
Fixed an issue when Room Assignments were being made from the Search Bookings results.
