Room Management

Room Management was just full of tasks. we subdivided in small chunks like adding room, room listing etc. Adding rooms in our system was iterated many times and finally made so clear so that any admin can quickly add all rooms of hotel with its complete details Based on guerrilla testing, we got average time of 2 minutes to add rooms of one sub category. I personally feel it amazing.

Reservation Process

As guest Making Reservation easy was not that easy cause we have to ask for less details about guest. I had to persuade product owners/developers like why we are asking someone details as if they are terrorists coming to a hotel. As admin we always kept in mind the guest time during booking should be minimized. Front desk officer select date and rooms, then it quickly redirects to room allocation.
