Online Booking System for Boat Rental

Dockside Boat Rental Booking System

Online Booking System:

Dockside chose Courtland to build an online booking system website for renting pontoons and wave runners on Michigan’s Torch Lake. The rental portal makes it easy for users to make a reservation with the ability to review open time-slots for each boat, select from additional options, pay in full or pay 50% deposit, add coupons, receive email reminders about their booking, and sign all appropriate rental paperwork online.

The booking tool makes online reservations quicker for Dockside. They no longer have to look at printed calendars for each boat, as the online tool can determine availability instantly with the back-end visual calendar. The booking tool allows complete flexibility for admins to make standard bookings or specialized bookings through the use of custom coupons or admin-only products.

In addition to this online booking system making the administration of the boat rentals much easier, the new website will save time when renters pick up their boats as all paperwork is now completed before arrival. The time saving was crucial for Dockside’s excellent customer service.
