Finding Common Ground: Intelligent Booking Alternatives in MIDAS Room Booking Systems

Meeting user needs and fostering satisfaction is crucial to the success of any booking operation. We recognize this need which is why our software offers a user-centric approach with the intelligent Booking Alternatives feature. This powerful tool helps bridge the gap between requested and available bookings, minimizing user frustration and enhancing the overall booking experience.

Understanding Booking Challenges: Beyond Ideal Scenarios

While ideally, desired booking slots would always be available, various factors can lead to unavailability:
  • Existing bookings: The requested room or time slot might already be booked for another event.
  • Venue closure: The desired venue might be closed during the requested timeframe.
  • Limited availability: Specific rooms or times might have limited availability due to high demand or resource constraints.

Intelligent Booking Alternatives: Offering Solutions

MIDAS's Booking Alternatives feature addresses these challenges by:
  • Identifying potential alternatives: When a user's preferred booking is unavailable, MIDAS automatically suggests alternative options.
  • Diverse suggestions: These alternatives may include:
    • Earlier or later time slots: Suggesting similar times within the same day to accommodate scheduling adjustments.
    • Shifted days: Proposing bookings on the day before or after the requested date to enhance scheduling flexibility.
    • Alternative rooms or spaces: Recommending similar rooms or spaces that are available during the desired timeframe.

  • Tailoring suggestions: Administrators can teach MIDAS which spaces are suitable alternatives for each other. This ensures that suggested alternatives are relevant and meet user requirements.
