- Can the App ensure secure payments?
Zeevou developed the necessary automation around security deposits in Zeevou Book – Zeevou’s renowned 5-step Booking Confirmation Process. This is the only system that offers hosts the necessary automation to manage security deposits effectively. Moreover, if there is a need to capture part of the deposit, Zeevou allows hosts to do this without having to leave the system. Charging a deposit creates a log of the reason and the amount, and also allows the host to automate the sending of an email and/or a text message to the guest, detailing the charge.
- Are the website templates engaging and high-converting?
As mentioned the website that Zeevou automatically generates is SEO friendly and is perfect for multi-location serviced apartment providers. It enables you to include blog posts, providing the ability to generate custom pages. It also allows you to make vouchers for discounts to increase your occupancy. Zeevou’s Booking Engine allows guests to book directly through your website with live rates and availability. It aims to maximise the conversion rate of your guests. How? By allowing bookings to be made with as few clicks as possible. Once a booking is placed, the guest is asked to confirm and provide additional information.
