Jomres is a robust, feature rich hotel booking system that's been constantly developed, full-time, for 8 years. It is the absolute pinnacle of the Joomla hotel booking systems, nothing else even comes close.
Recently added features :
* Media Centre. Ajax control image uploading.
* Array caching, for huge performance gains.
* VIES VAT number validation. Your European customers can now store their VAT numbers, and if you use the subscription or commision functionality (extra) then invoices do not include VAT if that's appropriate.
* QR codes that are printed on the confirmation emails, allowing receptionists to scan guests in and see the bookings while on the move.
* Google map layers. See the weather/traffic/transit/cycling/panoramio layers in the built-in Gmaps.
* Added a tap to call button to the (bootstrap) property header template, which is viewable when on a phone. Allows phone users to call hotels directly.
The core system is free, if you want a simple booking system for your hotel booking site then the core system is all you need to get up and running. If you decide you want to add functionality to your hotel later on then you can upgrade to Jomres Solo, Silver or Gold to allow you to install some of the many plugins available.
Features of the free, core system:
Intelligent, ajax driven booking form. Equally suited to enable booking hotels, B&Bs and individual properties like apartments and villas. Over the years we've fine-tuned the booking process to make it as simple yet as powerful as possible. If the guest's not ready to book right away, they can contact the hotel directly through a form instead.
Property/hotel management is done via the frontend, no need to worry about Aunt Betty having access to the backend of your site and breaking something. Site managers can configure users as basic property managers, so Super Property Managers can have many configuration options, and basic managers will have far fewer options to worry about.
Unlimited images can be uploaded to create a slideshow of your hotel.
Reviews are integrated into the core of the system, let your hotel's customers speak for you.
Fully automatic exchange rate conversion functionality that is sensitive to the location of the site visitor, automatically choosing the exchange rate that's most appropriate for them.
A huge number of settings, if you want to use them. Out-of-the-box Jomres works fine, but if you want to tweak how it works, that's ok too.
Hotel/Property Management System functionality.
Detailed invoicing functionality that make it clear to both your guests and hotel managers what they're paying for.
Google mapping used throughout, map your hotel precisely using our simple yet intuitive drag'n'drop feature.
And more...see the feature list for a full breakdown of what the system offers.
For me it was in the beginning a little confusing so I asked quite some questions on the forum and I must say I got a excellent help from user Sidebar and Piranha !
Now that i played a little on my localhost with the program i can do all that i want with it.
keep up the excellent work ;)
I do vacation rental properties and this program helped me to create a professional site even if I am not a webmaster.
Simply... it is reliable!!!
IF I need support -which is next to never- I get it straight away, no matter the day of the week and it's always "above and beyond the call of duty".
Once again Vince thanks for all your help!
You're welcome, I hope you'll be using it for years to come.
I must say i tried several booking systems for Joomla but....after using jomres i wont have to try another one, because the service is JUST PERFECT! its all you can wish for, i mean, quick, professional, clear , honest, and most of all you can use jomres as a stand alone.. even if you decide to install the SA version the support is outgoing. i started my website as a project with no money( my services are completely free for the hotels) so Lucky that Vince have a standard license that doesn't cost allot of money, and i can save again to buy the perpetual license (still saving :-) ) then there is piranha... this man is next to Vince one of the most important people you have to talk to! they are both the walking jomres WIKI´S. Have a problem? no worries they can and will fix it.
Well this is my experience, opinion, and i know i will stick by jomres. Why? if i have to tell you after reading my story i can only say try it for yourself. Thanks Vince and Piranha without you, my project failed for sure. now its up and running not finished still allot of work with even more questions.
I have seen some negative comments from people who have not tried to learn for themselves and consequently written unfair comments regarding components, modules and plugins on here and in the forums.
The other side of that, we all know, is searching for a component that does what it claims to can take time and at times be very frustrating. That's just the way it is.
My view regarding Jomres is that it is simply the only product that delivers in terms of functionality. It is the best...fact!
Yes, it takes time to understand and you will need to embrace a "learning attitude" to get the most from Jomres.....If you moan that it doesn't work instantly then you should really be doing something else.
However, If you have any issues, present them to Vince or Aladar (Piranha)in a constructive fashion and these guys will go out of their way to help you...beyond and above any support I have experienced...My site has gone down so well with my client because I could tailor it to her needs and next time I use Jomres it will seem so much easier....
Thanks to the team at Jomres for your support - an example for others to follow
the product itself is very good and far superior to the competition i looked at (from my layman's view)
the level of service I received was a very refreshing surprise, the team live and breath this product, and it is reflected in the service you receive
The Developer states that this is not a fly-by-night operation and that he's in it for the long haul - and he has certainly proved that to me during the past year.
I have never been involved in the hospitality industry before finally opening our Bed and Breakfast last Christmas, but I knew that I would need a system that could accept bookings and take deposits while I was asleep.
Jomres is an incredibly complex piece of software and I am still finding out new things about it - but it does what it's supposed to do.
I have raised many, many Bug reports and they have all been addressed and resolved very quickly.
On many occasions Vince has incorporated new suggestions or has explained why Jomres needs to work the way it does.
I haven't seen any better application available for this purpose and the Bug handling is recently even faster, thanks to Aladar.
I am admired by functions. It on the realy professional work.
I am happy.
However I have two remarks:
1. Slowly works under joomla
2. Very bad localisation on Russian (translate through software) is necessary for retranslating 95 % of the text. I will do translate independently. If jomres team want I can give translate to them.
Thank you for your kind words. Regarding the speed, try disabling the html purifier functionality (it can slow your site down). As for the translated language file, please raise a support ticket so that we can see about adding the file to the core system.
