Quotes

Quotes contain details about bookings such as the account information, contact for the booking, guest rooms blocked, function rooms, commissions, packages and more.  Here are some of the latest updates to help you manage your bookings more effectively and efficiently.

Packages

Packages provide you the ability to bundle services together to deliver unique and personalized value to your customers.  To ensure these are easy to use and complimentary to other areas of the quote functionality, we have made the following updates:

Group Booking

The  Group Booking feature is used to enter the room block for your quotes by room type, rate type and occupancy type. It is a great visual method of adding and adjusting your room blocks.  

PMS Connectivity

Two-way integrations with PMS  providers ensure that your data is always up-to-date and clean. We include integration with Oracle Opera, Mews and StayNTouch. As you share your feedback, we continue to optimize the experience and take advantage of new features that our partners are releasing on their roadmap.  Here are some of the features we have added to the Thynk platform to create a seamless experience where you can do your work in Thynk and trust that data is flowing with your other systems.

MEWS Integration Updates

Mews had a big update that we are excited to enable for you in our integration with them.  They released the Availability Blocks feature which enables you to set aside a fixed set of your inventory (rooms/beds/space) for a specific date range and rate.  This new feature required a few updates on our end to ensure you have the same seamless experience working with Thynk + Mews.  You can read more below about what was added or changed to support group block integration with Mews.
