Building on our existing Conversion solution (currently embedded in Roomlynx) we have re-engineered a brand new solution to provide an enhanced experience that is much more user-centric:
- Embedded within Rezlynx & Roomlynx workflows
- Allows faster and more accurate configuration
- Giving continuous user feedback, with notifications and prompts.
- Clearer overview of the Conversion Grid
Who can have it?
Distribution Conversions are initially available for all customers that are active with the standard connection channels. Further channels with bespoke connections, will be available at a later date.
Users wishing to access new Conversions within Rezlynx PMS, will require an a SSO (Single Sign On) account.
Distribution Conversions work best with Google Chrome (Windows/ Mac) or Microsoft Edge (Windows/ Mac).
Channels that have currently been developed with New Conversions:
Booking.com - available from 30th September 2021, see further details HERE
Expedia - coming soon
How is it activated?
We have already activated the new Conversions to be available for all early adaptor customers. You will see the new Conversions screen whenever you log into Roomlynx and navigate to Conversions. The old Conversion pages are still available to switch back to and displayed for those channels currently being developed.
Distribution Conversions in PMS
Distribution Conversions is also available to view within Rezlynx PMS for SSO (Single Sign On) users with access to Distribution, enabling you to quickly access key information and make changes without having to log in to Roomlynx separately.
For these users, a new menu, titled 'Distribution' will be available and will display the new Conversions screen when selected, within the PMS.
Distribution Conversions in Roomlynx
As well as Rezlynx PMS, Distribution Conversions is available within Guestline Distribution (Roomlynx).
Channels > Channel Settings > Conversions
New conversions allow easy access for adding all your conversion requirements, including:
- Rate Plans
- Room Types
- Extras (also know as upsells/additional items/services)
- Media Source Codes
- Card Types
Select Add Row when new mapping is required, this will simply allow you to select the PMS values and enter the Channel values with ease.
Once all your conversion rows have been added, hitting Save will apply all your changes.
Conversions can be edited and deleted at any time, using the "pencil" and "bin" icons.
Multiple changes can be completed in one action, allowing you to save your changes just once.
Default Room & Rate Codes
In order to ensure all reservations are delivered to Rezlynx PMS, setting a default conversion will pick up these default room and rate codes, should a reservation be made, on a channel room or rate that has not been mapped.
Failing to add default conversions, will not allow you to save any mapping that you have applied.
Once a default has been added and saved, a message of success will display.
Should your mapping not be required to update to the channel and is only applied for reservation delivery, 'not managed' can be selected at the point of edit.
Selecting on the Conversion headers will allow you to sort the mapping on any column, by selecting on the header once (ascending) or twice (descending). Selecting a third time will clear the filters.
