Our bespoke QuickRes online booking tool allows users to book UK hotel accommodation by using a desktop computer, tablet or smart phone. QuickRes represents a very powerful complete online solution including our bill back facility. It also comes with many optional features to help control costs and improve compliance.
Users are able to conduct a search, browse hotels, see available rates and then book with confidence. Once booked, the system automatically generates booking confirmations and payment details are sent to the hotel.
In addition to finding and booking a hotel, line manager approval, rate cap restrictions, reasons for travel and real time reporting functionality are available.

We are able to provide an additional level of pre stay governance whereby all bookings, both online and offline, require line manager authorisation.
We record who authorised the booking and if a booking is refused, we capture who refused it and the reason why. This is also detailed on MI reports.
Pre Stay Line Manager Approval
High levels of compliance are experienced using QuickRes as it applies two compliance levels to stop clients booking over budget.
In the first instance, a over-margin is allowed but a reason must be given as to why it has been exceeded. If this margin is exceeded then it is impossible to book.
Rate Cap Restrictions
When an employee makes a booking we can capture the “reason for travel”.
This allows you to monitor staff travel behaviour and identify costs associated to stay types. For example, client visit, training, store cover etc.
Reason For Travel
We recognise that sometimes you may need to obtain a report on your company spend and wish to run your own reports.
Report Managers can be set up who can run MI for their company over any time frame and exporting them to an Excel spreadsheet for further analysis.
