Kajima Community recently delivered a project for NHS Property Services (NHSPS) to provide the booking system behind NHS Open Space.
This will enable users to hire both clinical and non-clinical space, at first 20 properties, with a view to roll it out across their UK portfolio. This huge project has led to a number of developments which will now be rolled out to other current and potential BookingsPlus customers.
The main development we are pleased to announce is the added ability our online lettings software has in order to efficiently and effectively manage multiple properties via one, easy-to-use, portal. This development means that BookingsPlus can now easily accommodate venues with a collection of properties such as multi academy trusts (MATs).
The lettings software is a web-based, end to end booking system, including all the functions required to manage lettings effectively, from a simple room booking tool to, invoicing, online payments, automated communications and full suite of reports. The software, which can be accessed via any device including laptops, tablets or mobiles, streamlines the booking process, making it easier for clients and hirers to book space, delivering efficiencies and cost savings.
Chris Smith, Head of Kajima Community, commented: “Over the past five years particularly, there has been mounting pressure on NHS budgets, and for many Trusts the ability to generate additional revenue and drive efficiencies across their estates is vital in enabling them to offer the best possible frontline service and patient care.
“The software development work, in-line with the NHSPS project, has allowed BookingsPlus to widen its appeal to those clients who need to effectively manage a variety of properties from one centralised system and we’re also pleased to be announcing a number of other new developments that will benefit a wide audience.
There will be a central landing page where clients are able to search, view availability and book facilities. Paying up front and guaranteeing payment for the duration of a regular booking. Debtors will become a thing of the past.”
