Product Milestones in 2023: A Chronicle of the Guest Journey

We introduced a lineup of cutting-edge features, enhancements, and seamless integrations to turbocharge your operations and improve the guest journey, from initial research to post-stay.

1. Research: Raccoon Price Checker

Travellers don’t make quick booking decisions; they like to compare options and pricing. Introducing Raccoon Price Checker, a handy price comparison widget in the booking engine that compares your rates on popular booking channels (, Expedia, Agoda, and Airbnb) to your direct booking rate. This helps guests see they’re getting a better deal by booking directly, and you avoid hefty commission fees.

2. Booking: Booking Proposal

Are inquiries taking up too much time? Create provisional bookings and share booking proposals with your potential guests. Upon confirmation and prepayment, the system will automatically approve the booking and transform the reservation status from ‘Provisional’ to ‘Confirmed.

3. Arrival: Roommatik

We’ve welcomed Roommatik to the RoomRaccoon Marketplace. Roommatik specializes in the seamless integration of self-check-in machines that elevate your property’s hospitality experience. The state-of-the-art technology ensures your establishment boasts a 24-hour unattended reception, fully compliant with all the legal requirements.

4. Stay: F&B List

Stay on top of your Food & Beverage (F&B) requirements – now including an overview of breakfast, lunch & dinner. We’ve introduced activation toggles in the add-on set-up section to easily assign add-ons for meal service times in the F&B list. You can also easily distribute your daily F&B plan to your team by printing it out or sending it via email.

5. Departure: Online Self Check-Out

As a hotelier, you can make the check-out process for your guests stress-free by sending them an online check-out request link. By doing this, your guests can settle any outstanding payments online through a secure payment portal without having to visit the front desk, which can be time-consuming and cause unnecessary delays.

What’s next?

Tymen Van Dyl, CEO and Founder of RoomRaccoon remarked: “Our product team is currently revamping the user interface (UI) and user experience (UX) as part of an ongoing project, with the goal of improving the overall user experience. At the same time, we are carefully reconstructing the underlying codebase to create the world’s best all-in-one hotel management system.”
