BookingSuite to discontinue WebDirect, BookingButton and RateIntelligence as hoteliers search for booking engines

October 7th, 2020 Stefano Mocella General, Latest News, Online Bookings

Hoteliers were taken aback earlier this year when Booking.com, a world renowned online travel agency for lodging reservations, announced that BookingSuite, one of their units, would be discontinuing WebDirect, BookingButton and RateIntelligence. All three platforms will be discontinued, effective November 30th, 2020. 

That leaves hotels with just a couple more months to find a suitable replacement and ensure they don’t miss a beat with regards to garnering direct bookings, managing rates or ensuring they have a secure, seamless booking engine for potential guests. BookingSuite has offered third party hospitality apps for hoteliers for the past five years, and those who have used the platform for several years will be looking for suitable replacements that offer flexibility, affordability and are easy to use.

Hoteliers can bounce back quickly with a suitable replacement

Fortunately for hotels finding themselves in a tough spot, InnQuest Software has been at the forefront of hotel booking solutions for decades. In fact, InnQuest’s booking engine WebBook, is an industry leader in direct booking technology, offering users a modern and user-friendly design. It was built with both user and guest experience in mind. Built for InnQuest’s flagship PMS, roomMaster, WebBook is the perfect BookingSuite replacement.
