BookingCenter's Self Check-in System lets the Guest update details, payment methods, view policies, digitally sign documents and complete check-in from any device (tablet, PC, mobile, etc). The process is fully integrated with MyPMS with synchronized status updates, customized messaging, eSign - Digital Document Signing and optional SMS Messaging (subscription required).
The Self Check-in function is completed in MyBooking, our secure guest portal allowing the guest to view and update booking details and complete self check-in. Access to MyBooking is enabled for each booking in MyPMS and is seamlessly integrated with BookingCenter Customized Letters.
To give the Guest access to MyBooking, the Guest is sent a customized "Start Self Check-in" Letter (email and/or SMS) with a secure link to MyBooking, The secure link (called an RUID) is emailed/SMS to the Guest for each unique Booking and displays the details specific to that particular booking(s). If a Guest has a multi-room booking, then all of the bookings they made at the same time (for example, 3 rooms booked on your website or 4 rooms booked at Booking.com) will all display when the self check-in links are clicked from any of the bookings. This gives the Guests the ability to view the details and check-in each booking in one place as opposed to having to login multiple times, one for each booking.
If the Guest clicks on the Self Check-in link BEFORE the Check-in date, then the Guest will be able to Manage the Booking, but the Check-in button will not display.
