New Algorithm Eases Campsite Owner Worries
The feature enables the owner to set their total campsite occupancy limit – whether for legal reasons, such as fire safety, or operational reasons, such as catering capacity.
When a new reservation is in progress, the system interrogates all booking data to calculate the current campsite occupancy on each of the days being requested. If the new enquiry doesn’t break the limit set, then the booking is accepted.
“With the volume of bookings we receive, keeping tabs on the number of adults and children on-site on any one day can be very difficult – especially with all the daily changeovers. Rather than having to err on the side of caution to avoid accidentally exceeding our numbers, we can now rely on Inn Style to prevent bookings that would land us in hot water. It’s a real relief!” commented Lucy Honeychurch from Higher Town Farm, Looe in Cornwall.
Chris Waters, Head of Product Development at Inn Style commented “We could see that enforcing these limits would be a real headache for a campsite owner to manage. Given that we have the campsite’s booking data and the processing power, it seemed the perfect time for Inn Style to take the strain and deliver a solution that just works.”
