HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA – November 1, 2017 – b4checkin, Inc., a developer and provider of cloud-based hospitality software solutions, announces the successful implementation of chameleon, an adaptable and affordable hotel booking engine, for two large casino hotel properties – Black Bear Casino Resort (http://www.blackbearcasinoresort.com/) in Carlton, Minnesota and Pahrump Nugget Hotel Casino (https://www.pahrumpnugget.com/) in Pahrump, Nevada.
These casino hotel properties both utilize Agilysys Visual One™ as their property management system (PMS) to effectively manage guestroom inventory. As part of the Agilysys-b4checkin Reseller Agreement, chameleon is the premier choice for Agilysys PMS users, allowing these properties to have extensive online packaging and bundling of ancillary revenue streams with room reservations. This means that there is not only increased convenience for customers, but also that these casino hotels will be better able to capture incremental revenue from guests.
These two installations further emphasize b4checkin’s role as a visionary leader in the hospitality software space. Black Bear Casino Resort also has an 18-hole golf course, for which the hotel deployed b4checkin’s b4golf, the only two-way tee time reservation solution that integrates with Agilysys’s V1 GolfPro. Now powered by both chameleon and b4golf, Black Bear Casino Resort will be able to seamlessly facilitate guestroom and golf bookings, as well as payments, from the same online customer interface. This will help to maximize revenues for both channels in addition to reducing labor requirements to process these transactions.
“All-in-one booking and payment platforms are the future. Customers already demand and expect a fluid online experience, and b4checkin’s installations at these casino hotels is yet another demonstration of how our software solutions are helping to meet this need.” said Saar Fabrikant, President & CEO of b4checkin. “As the most agile developer of middleware and customer-facing technologies for the hospitality industry, b4checkin will continue to service the global market for integrated solutions that can enhance the guest booking experience as well as offer guests a convenient method of booking additional amenities.”
“The chameleon booking engine has made the reservation process quick and easy. Its mobile responsiveness means guests get the same experience regardless of the device they use. The admin portal is equally straightforward and gives my team the flexibility to update content on demand.” said Corey Van Guilder, Hotel Manager at Black Bear Casino Resort. “Moreover, b4golf is a fully integrated solution with our V1 GolfPro system. Guests are thrilled to be able to book their tee times online so they can better focus on enjoying a round on our spectacular golf course!”
