How can Hotels communicate with their Booking.com guests using our channel manager?

Guest engagement is one of the important aspects of hotels. It is equally important to engage with the guests when they reach out to hotels with their requests. Our hotels were finding it difficult to go on Booking.com and check the recent messages from their guests and reply to them.

With this enhancement, we bring in the way by which our hotels will be easily able to see the messages sent by their booking.com guests and will be able to communicate with them as well from our channel manager itself.

This will help them promptly reply to requests coming in from their booking.com guests and even help them create better guest experiences.

Path: Login to eZee Centrix (channel manager) >> Click on “bell” icon >> Channel Message >> Select the OTA >> Start communicating.

What is Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) and why is MFA Important?

Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) is an authentication method that requires the user to provide two or more verification factors to gain access to a resource such as an application, online account, or a VPN. MFA is a core component of a strong identity and access management (IAM) policy. Rather than just asking for a username and password, MFA requires one or more additional verification factors, which further enhances system security.

Why is MFA Important?

The main benefit of MFA is it will enhance the organization’s security by requiring the users to identify themselves by more than a username and password. While important, usernames and passwords are vulnerable to brute force attacks and can be stolen by third parties. So, We can prevent phishing attacks using MFA Authentication and provide better security for the hoteliers. By the MFA feature, we can secure the customer login panel, so even if the customer’s login details are compromised, an attacker will not able to log in.

We have implemented two-factor authentication (2FA) which is a subset of MFA. In order to get more detail about its activation and working please refer below mentioned links,

Once the setup process is completed, the user has to log out and try to log in again. The user has to enter a 2FA code to login into the system.

How to Enable Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)?
