The award winning hotel software suite by John Keells Computer Services was showcased to the local hotel industry yet again at this year’s sixth edition of Sancharaka Udawa, which was held from 27 to 29 May at Sirimavo Bandaranaike Memorial Hall.
Zhara’s enhanced ‘Booknow.lk’ portal – which generates large volumes of bookings for local hotels – was unveiled there.
The Zhara team at JKCS has continually created innovations in hotel technology for the past six years. They are renowned for successfully marrying cloud technology with hotel management. The team was back this year introducing a comprehensive hotel booking portal titled ‘Booknow.lk’ (www.booknow.lk) along with their improved Zhara hotel software suite (www.zharahs.com).
Booknow.lk is an interesting hotel hub, portraying the many facets of holidaying in Sri Lanka through various accommodation spots and experiences from beach to hill country. The palette spans from homestays to star class luxury abodes and boutique properties at competitive rates catering to all types of visitors both local and foreign.
Any hotel or accommodation service provider can sign up with Zhara to have their property listed and promoted on the site. For the online travel shopper it is truly a haven where they can book accommodation in a click and make the payment securely on the spot, guaranteeing hassle free holidaying at any desired location in the island.
Similar to the many innovations introduced by Zhara, Booknow.lk is also backed with a robust development roadmap, ensuring that online holiday shoppers are well supported.
To date Zhara HS remains the one local hotel software solution which covers the entire spectrum of hotel operations from booking to check-out and even building guest loyalty thereafter.
Committed to bringing in more innovative means of empowering the industry, the Zhara team is constantly on the lookout for new ventures like Booknow.lk, which enable local hotel properties to take advantage of the online revolution.
