Magus TravelNet

Its been a while. Well, for the last couple of months I've been working for a really great company called Magus TravelNet developing a product called BookSure. Amazing people, great job potential and to make it even better, work is just down the road.

Booksure is basically an online reservations and secure payment system for guesthouses. It integrates into the guesthouses website, eliminating the need for aggregated travel directories such as Portfolio Collection and (Not as great a product as booksure, but we provide the service nevertheless) where the website charges a commision which they keep and in turn provide credit card booking capabilities.

The reservations system aspect of booksure simply amazing. It is what makes us stand out (well, that and the low credit card transaction fees). I have been working on adding SpeedPoint functionality to the system, so that guesthouse owner can accept credit cards for other transactions, rather than just the initial booking value or deposit.
