FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Vancouver, BC (March  18, 2014) – Zaui Software Ltd., leaders in web based reservation management software, announced today the launch of a new feature for equipment rental operators. The rental feature comes as part of Zaui’s comprehensive, all-in-one software providing web and mobile e-commerce solutions to tour, activity, rental and airport shuttle operators.

“We are very excited with this new feature and design which is set to target online reservations for rental activity providers”, says Kory Fawcett, chief software architect at Zaui Software.  “Easy equipment rental management will become the next leading feature to fill a void in the marketplace that no other tourism software provider is currently offering.”

Rentals in our system will support a broad range of rental options, from simply single day  to long term multi-day, week or month rentals.  The flexibility in the design allows any type of rental activity to be configured and managed. Inventory, pricing, reseller channel management and in depth business analytics provide rental operations a unique set of tools to grow their business.

With the rise in mobile usage in the trip planning and purchasing process, Zaui’s new feature adds rentals to the mix of products its customers can offer when connecting with mobile travellers in their destination. As part of an online strategy to provide live inventory at the time of booking, rental operators can engage their customers before arriving or once they reach their destination.

 “We’re so excited to be the first software company working in this space. This has the potential for a big impact in the local discovery marketplace, and will revolutionize the way rental activity providers have been able to manage their day to day business to date” says Mr. Fawcett.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

VANCOUVER, BC (August 2, 2013) – Zaui Software Ltd. leaders in web based transportation, shuttle and tour management software, announces the launch of their redesigned web based engine for transportation schedule services.

The new design in transportation booking adds rich new features to an already extremely successful engine. The core focus in this design was to expand the existing workflow of the engine, adapt best practices from airline engines, combined with a primary focus on content visibility, increase of e-commerce conversions and retention rates.

Key changes to this new website booking engine include a complete redesign of the input fields which translates into a faster page load rate and better client retention. According to GlobalDots.com “The majority of Americans are said to wait in line (in a real shop) for no longer than 15 minutes. However, on the web, 1 out of 4 customers will abandon a webpage that takes more than 4 seconds to load “ (How Website Speeds Affect Conversion Rates – December, 14 2012).

Another key new feature is the inclusion of a weekly calendar view similar to those found on airline reservation platforms. The new calendar view allows the user to navigate and search for available departures on a daily and/or weekly basis thus presenting them with enhance choices to complete their purchasing decision.

Kory Fawcett, chief software architect at Zaui Software says “We focus solely on bringing our existing engine inline with the paradigms of how airline content is purchased online.  This includes, not only, how the content is delivered and displayed for the customer, but making the purchase process as simply and quick as possible, in an increasingly complex sector of tourism.”  Mr. Fawcett continues, “We believe this is the most sophisticated web-based engine currently solely targeting scheduled ground transportation companies, anywhere in the world.”
