In today's digital age, businesses of all types and sizes are seeking innovative ways to streamline operations, enhance customer experiences, and boost revenue. For companies in the outdoor recreation industry, transitioning to an online booking software is often a strategic move to achieve these goals.
However, if you’re making the transition from pen and paper to digital, you may be wondering, “How much will it cost me?” And “What will be my return on investment?”
Let's take a look at the journey of moving from traditional booking methods to an outfitter booking software like Recreogo...
The Initial Investment
Moving to an online booking system, like any other significant change, could involve an initial investment, depending on the platform that you choose.
At Recreogo, we understand the importance every dollar has to your business, which is why Recreogo and all of its benefits are absolutely free to businesses. No set-up fee, no support fee, no ongoing monthly fees. Recreogo adds a convenience fee, which the customer pays, when an online booking is made.
Once you’ve made the decision to move to online booking, the next step is training your staff and integrating the new system into your existing infrastructure. However, this is an investment that will pay off in efficiency and accuracy.
With one on one support from Recreogo, our partners can go from sign-up to live in as little as 24 hours. Quick onboarding is important for any partner seeking to gain efficiencies from online bookings. As part of our “5 Star Customer Success Program” you’ll receive white-glove service throughout the process. Once you go live, you’ll continue to receive ongoing support, training, webinars, and our annual 'Partner Success Calls' that ensure you're maximizing the benefits of the platform.
On average our partners complete the onboarding process in 7 days. Without a setup fee, that means that your initial investment switching to Recreogo is only the time it takes for you to gather any necessary documents, attend a setup and training call, and log any existing reservations. But, we know time is money, so what are the returns on this investment?
Increased Efficiency: Recreogo can help automate many manual tasks, such as scheduling, resource/equipment allocation, damage waivers, and payment processing. This reduces the risk of errors, streamlines processes, and allows staff to focus on providing excellent service rather than administrative tasks.
Improved Customer Experience: Online booking offers customers the convenience of booking appointments or services at any time, from anywhere. This can lead to increased customer satisfaction and loyalty.
Expanded Market Reach and New Customer Acquisition: When you use Recreogo, your inventory is automatically listed on our Marketplace. Through our network and marketing efforts we will promote your listings to a growing customer base. Our Marketplace is unique in that it promotes your brand, leading to an increase in bookings, a wider reach for your business, and new customers.
Data Insights: Recreogo collects valuable data and can help you track key performance metrics that you can compare over time.
Cost Savings: Over time, the efficiency gains and reduced administrative overhead can result in significant cost savings, making the transition to an online booking system like Recreogo a financially viable decision.
