Agilysys and B4Checkin Form Partnership

ALPHARETTA, GA/HALIFAX, NS—Agilysys, Inc. and B4Checkin, Inc. have reached a partnership agreement whereby Agilysys will offer the B4Checkin booking engine to its Visual One PMS Customers.

The B4Checkin booking engine has certified two-way interfaces with the Visual One PMS, which means crucial information—such as room rates, inventory availability and guest profile data—is automatically exchanged in real time between the two solutions. This helps to speed up confirmation times and ensure guests have an accurate view of booking options.

Designed specifically for independent hotels, the solution is fully customizable to match the look and feel of a property’s website, so that a consistent brand image is presented to potential guests. According to the company, easy-to-navigate screens and availability calendars enable users to view room types and rates, and guests have the option of purchasing pre-built packages or selecting specific components to create packages.

The B4Checkin booking engine also upsells users to better room types and displays value-added items, such as wine, flowers and local attractions. Other features include personalized email communications, both pre- and post-stay, and add-on modules that allow for group deposits.

B4Checkin features a flat monthly subscription model.
