Vik Booking was created to offer a complete management system, to give a real autonomy to the owners of any type of accommodatio, large or small, who have chosen to invest in their website. This is why it evolves together with them, adapting itself to the needs and new dynamics of the hospitality sector. 

The adaptability to a wider target of structures and an extreme software customization characterize this new update, result of months of intense programming to give to its end users a complete plugin.

Vacation Rentals, Camping Sites and similar accommodations can benefit of the new Interactive Map.

Those companies who manage multiple accommodations at different locations, or those who manage resorts, bungalows or camping sites with accommodations located in different areas, can represent all of their room-types (or tents) through an interactive Google Map, and allow bookings via front-end to guests directly through the map.

Thanks to the new Geocoding features, it is also possible to allow bookings at "sub-unit level", meaning that you can keep grouping your rooms/tents into room-types with multiple units, and allow the guests to choose specific and exact sub-units.

The same Geocoding features can also be useful for regular rooms with multiple or single units, so that the front-end page Room Details will display the location of the property within a Google Map.

This is how the new booking process through the Interactive Map looks like:

Customize colors and styles through a simple color-picker.

This new version is also very oriented to simplifying the customization of the front-end layout. You no longer need to add custom CSS rules to change some colors, you can just do it through the apposite color pickers in the Configuration settings.

That's not all.

There's a new Customizer tool that lets you select elements from the Email, Invoice and Check-in template files to change their properties, from the colors to the borders. All through some simple clicks.

Scheduled actions through the new Conditional Text Rules

Another important feature of this new version is the Conditional Text Rules. These are basically rules to be applied over any kind of Email message, Cron Job or template file. Thanks to the various filtering rules, you will be able to add custom and dedicated messages, or to perform certain actions (like adding an attachment file), by targeting specific room types that were booked, specific countries, methods of payments, languages and much more.

Basically, this tool will let you create modular contents for any communication between your guests, with the ease of automatizing the whole thing.

The Conditional Text Rules can also be set up to inform your specific guests, maybe returning guests that already booked a room before at your property, about promotions or dedicated discounts.

Experience the new fabulous dashboard and its Admin Widgets.

Forget the old Dashboard, because you can now build your own Dashboard thanks to the new Admin Widgets and their Customizer.

Feel free to choose your preferred admin widgets among a variety of extendable modular tools. Publish your Admin Widgets into new Sections and Containers of different sizes, to get the best out of this new feature.

The Dashboard is probably one of the most important pages of Vik Booking, and with this new version it will let you monitor any kind of activities with automated updates through AJAX requests.
