|The IRM is like a reservations department that works 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, for free. There are no salaries to pay, commissions, office space, telephone lines, desks, or employee benefits. With the IRM, 20, 30, 50, or more guests can all check availability simultaneously, at any time of day or night. There are never any "busy signals" or the requirement to "wait until the reservations department is open in the morning."
RDP has now installed over 200 copies of the IRM, and almost all of our customers are amazed that they can close their reservations department at 6:00 PM and come back in the morning and find 20 new reservations in their system! The IRM works while everybody else at the resort sleeps!
The average RDP customer with the IRM has generated $200,000/year in bookings with the Internet Reservation Module. The number of reservations made via electronic distribution channels continue to increase. Currently 20% of all reservations are made through the Internet, and this percentage is increasing every year. With 20% (or more) of reservations via the Internet, imagine the implications of your resort not being connected. A guest may find you and your competitors web sites, but if the potential guest cannot book your resort online, a reservation will be made at your competitor's resort.|
