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.

I came across this blog while looking for accommodation in SA on the net, but neither or booksure came up during my search. I just went to Capestay and SA-Venues, where my bookings were done and dusted by the following day.

Interestingly enough I am working on exactly that at the moment. We have never had any sort of Search Engine Optimization done for MagusTravelNet before. So google hates us at the moment. We have been fixing that recently, as well as paying google to be our friend, so you (hopefully) wont have that problem in the future

what is really amazing about magus travel net is how they simply copied (thats the nicest word I can think of) safarinow / hurricane blue technology, using what paul de waal managed to glean while 'managing' portfoliocollection...
ah well. imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, they say. by the way the site still seems to be nowhere in google.

that sounds like sour grapes to me. ive used all of these systems and booksure is the best because you deal directly with the establishment
