New Advanced Tariff Option

Great news! We have listened to our customers and have implemented a new “Advanced” feature for tariffs for a reservation. This feature will allow you to add multiple tariffs to a single reservation and choose which days of the stay that they apply. 

For Example, this will allow you to make a reservation with a mixture of B&B and Full Board options with the customer choosing to have different meal options for different nights of their stay. There are many other instances where you could want to have different tariffs applicable to each night of the booking, this new “Advanced” option will allow you to have this level of control.

First Night Billing Tariff

We have added a new option to the Tariff setup for tariffs that cover multiple nights. e.g. a 3 night weekend special. You can now choose to have the entire stay billed on the first night as a single charge. In the past the tariff would be charged pro-rata on a per night basis which could end up with rounding issues being charged to suspense. With the first night charge option this problem is eliminated and the bill reads much better and is clearer to the customer.

Automatic Cloud Backup Service

Mainstay will now store your latest backup each day in the cloud. Every day the latest backup will be encrypted and sent directly to our Cloud Backup server. With our Cloud Backup you no longer need to worry about off-site backups, copying to a USB stick or anything else. If the worst should happen and you need to recover you can be sure that the data is safe and we can have you up and running again quickly. The Cloud Backup is secure and your data is encrypted to ensure compliance with Data Protection.
