I currently develop and maintain a website for a hotel. It definitely helps in organizing and booking customer's schedules especially that a lot of travelers are moving in and out again. I would definitely recommend this plugin for hotels and similar businesses!
21 maj 2021
We were afraid of our operations being disrupted by COVID. But thanks to Easync, we were able to push through since we could have customers reserve ahead on our website. With Easync, we could also monitor and follow the allowed number of customers to avoid overcrowding. Thanks, Easync!
