Solidres 0.7.0 EAP is available for subscribers

Solidres 0.7.0 EAP is now available for all subscribers, for more information please read our previous blog post.

If you are a Solidres’s subscriber, there will be a new topic in your dedicated forum where you can download Solidres 0.7.0 EAP and Complex Tariff plugin (v0.3.0). If you’ve not subscribed, let’s get one of our subscription levels and start testing now.

 

Solidres 0.7.0 status update

As you all know that we are working very hard on the upcoming 0.7.0 release, this release contains an exciting new feature called “Multiple Tariffs” which means that with 0.7.0 and the new Complex Tariff plugin it is possible to allow your guests to choose between several tariffs/rates/packages (or whatever terms your business is using). In addition, Complex Tariff plugin is upgraded to give you an ability to create “package” type as well as specify allowed check in days (Mon -> Sun), with the new 0.7.0 and Complex Tariff plugin, you will be able to create the following (examples):

  • Standard rate with breakfast/Standard rate without breakfast.
  • Standard rate refundable/Standard rate non refundable.
  • Free Sunday: check in from Saturday and get Sunday for free. Check in must be Saturday.
  • Book 2 get 3: book 2 nights and get 1 night for free.

So instead of having your guest being forced to select only 1 tariff, now it is possible for them to choose, the more tariff options your guests can choose, the more likely they will book!

We are going to release an early preview release for our subscribers this week so that we can collect feedback to refine it before official release. Please check back regularly for more information.
