Direct Booking Manager
The future-proof online booking engine
Our Direct Booking Manager (DBM) is a mobile-first, guest centric sales platform which has been scoped, designed and developed from the ground up.
It provides users with real-time rates, pricing, room choices and information about the property, helping to drive bookings and increase opportunities for upsell. With a focus on simplicity and connectivity, the DBM’s ever evolving feature set provides an effective choice for your direct booking channel.

We are delighted with our long-standing partnership with Guestline and their development of the new DBM platform.

The information and images displayed in the DBM are all editable, and so are all of the room and hotel features.

DBM is fully responsive and is regularly measured against all modern browsers' standards, including those on mobile, tablet, and desktop. Our expert UI and UX teams ensure a consistent experience on all platforms and devices.
