RezStream is excited to announce its latest release: RezStream Professional 2012.6.0 and RezStream Rez2u Booking Engine!
ENHANCEDFEATURES found in RezStream Professional 2012.6.0:
RezStream Professional Credit Card Processing Update: We have updated our credit card processing module with Merchant Partners and Pay Pros (formerly PPI) gateways. If you use RezStream Professional to process credit cards, please download this update immediately! RezStream regularly communicates with its credit card processing vendors to ensure that all processing connections for your business are up to date with the latest code possible. This update also ensures that RezStream customers, who use the Merchant Partners gateway, will receive the lowest rates possible for pre-authorization and posting (when in-house charges have increased during the stay). As always, we want the smoothest processing possible for our clients, along with providing the lowest rates.
New RezStream Professional and RezStream Rez2u Booking Engine ADA Features: RezStream is pleased to announce the addition of the new Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) features to RezStream Professional and RezStream Rez2u Booking Engine. As of March 15, 2012, all third party online booking engines must be ADA accessible. RezStream Rez2u Booking Engine has undergone an independent ADA audit and certification evaluation. All RezStream Professional customers, who also use the RezStream Booking Engine, will need to download this update to RezStream Professional. You will then need to designate your ADA units in RezStream Professional (Tools>Unit and Rate Setup>Individual Units). Once that is completed, you must also update your online booking engine photos to include “Alternative text descriptions” for all your RezStream Booking Engine photos. RezStream can also provide this service for you. Please call us at 866-360-8210 for more information.
New RezStream ADA Consulting Services: Many businesses do not realize that their website must also be ADA accessible (a law put into place by the Justice Department in 2010). The only exception to this rule is for properties with five rooms or less AND the owner also lives on site. All other websites must be ADA accessible. RezStream offers a full line of ADA consulting services, as well as ADA website design services, to assist any business in making their website ADA accessible.
ENHANCED FEATURES found in Rez2u Booking Engine:
New ADA Accessible Rez2u Booking Engine: As mentioned above, RezStream Rez2u Booking Engine is now ADA accessible. However, all RezStream Booking Engine customers must update their ADA room descriptions within the booking engine and also add “alternative text descriptions” for photos. There are over 57 million Americans with disabilities. Open your doors to more business by utilizing our ADA accessible booking platform!

These features show up at “Step Two” of the booking process when using our hotel-style calendars. We have also added other search options so customers can select rental units based upon price range, unit capacity, or ADA rental units. You may also create special promo codes and book multiple rates. Call RezStream Support at 303-872-0220 (Option 2) for assistance in adding these new features to your existing RezStream booking experience.
New RezStream Booking Calendar Updates:RezStream is also in the process of fine-tuning its selection of booking calendar options.

RezStream offers more options and booking calendars than any other online booking company! Stay tuned for even more features to these great booking calendar options.
New Rez2u Booking Engine Lock-Off Features: RezStream has added new unit lock-off features for rental units, which have flexible rental size options. When customers book a reservation using the Rez2u Booking Engine, the lock-off feature will remove other possible rental options automatically. This new feature is perfect for property management companies that sometimes rent single bedrooms or combine bedrooms for larger rental possibilities. Note: This feature only works with RezStream Rez2u Booking Engine online reservation system.
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. Imagine if you knew which keyword consumers used before they made an online booking with your business, as well as how much revenue each keyword produced? With the new RezStream Rez2u Booking Engine, you can do exactly that. Call today if you would like RezStream’ s team of Internet marketing experts to customize your current Google Analytics account to track revenue to the keyword level. Don’t miss out on the chance to know which organic and PPC keywords yield the highest ROI for your current Internet marketing strategies.
