This update features numerous improvements to RezStream Professional property management software and the RezStream Booking Engine.
ENHANCED FEATURES now found in RezStream Professional 2011.5.0:
Fully PCI Compliant: All RezStream customers who store, or processes credit card numbers, must upgrade to version 2011.5.0 to comply with Payment Cardholder Information (PCI) regulations. To ensure the secured use of your customers' credit card information, the Credit Card Security Council (CCSC) has certified RezStream Professional, which contains advanced features to protect and secure all customers' credit card data. In July 2010, new regulations went into effect that requires all businesses to use only certified programs for the storage or processing of sensitive customer credit card information. RezStream Professional officially meets all of these strict guidelines by the CCSC.
New HTML Email Editor: RezStream Professional has added significant functionality to email and graphics capabilities. The new HTML email editor allows customers to create templates for the sending of all emails within RezStream Professional. Customers may also elect to bypass normal email programs and send emails directly with custom SMTP settings. Semi-automatic marketing emails are now easier than ever! Even though this functionality exists in the software, configuring this new feature and creating custom email templates requires advanced skills. For your best results, RezStream recommends using the expertise of its talented website design and support teams. For a reasonable $75 per hour fee, the RezStream teams can design custom email templates and then provide any additional support necessary to convert your current letters into these templates. Basic email setup and custom templates can be created in as little as one or two hours. Call 303-872-0220 (option 2) for assistance.
New RezStream Booking Engine: The next generation RezStream Booking Engine is now available! The new RezStream Booking Engine contains many advanced features that other booking engines do not support. One of the most exciting elements is the capability of matching the look and feel of our booking engine to the exact design scheme of your current website. The entire guest-booking interface and administrative interface have been re-written to improve the graphical look and feel of the booking engine. This results in a superior consumer booking experience. Customized two week calendars have been designed for smaller businesses like bed and breakfasts and inns. Hotels and vacation rental businesses may also tailor the new RezStream Booking Engine specifically for their own unique needs. In the coming months, RezStream will also be adding advanced dynamic packaging features that will dramatically increase your return on investment from online reservations.

Advanced Google Analytics Revenue Tracking: Many booking engines can track general information about online visitors and revenue. RezStream is one of the few companies to fully support Google's new asynchronous revenue tracking to the actual keyword level.

With the new RezStream Booking Engine, you can do exactly that. Call RezStream today at 866-360-8210 if you would like our team of Internet marketing experts to customize your current Google Analytics account to track revenue to the keyword level. RezStream charges $75 per hour for this service. Time needed to setup accounts can vary depending on if you are also participating in Google's pay per click (PPC) program. However, most accounts can be modified in a few hours. Don't miss out on the chance to know which organic and PPC keywords yield the highest return for your current Internet marketing initiatives.
