Alongside providing a great UI for viewing all your bookings you can also be kept up to date with changes with booking notifications.
These notifications can be sent to you by email and contain all the important information such as the guest name, pax and any comments they have. If you're moving from a contact form then having booking notifications can be a comforting way of making the transition.
You can also get the notifications sent to you via SMS so even when your on the go with no data you can be in the loop - and can be reactive if you suddenly get a surge of bookings unexpectedly.
You can even get notified by webhooks so you can develop your own notification channels that suit your business.
