Powerboat Adventures is one of The Caribbean most recognised and popular tour activities.
In November 2014, with VAT looming in The Bahamas, and margins becoming tighter, Capt Nigel Bower, the company founder, knew online sales were critical to the company in today's world, and began the task of finding a booking solution that would provide the tools needed to move the company forward.
After reviewing several overseas tour booking options, he found none provided what he needed from a managment side, and, more importantly, none were integrated with the payment systems offered by the local banks in the Caribbean.
He contacted Thyme Online, and worked with us to develop a system designed specifically to work with the tour operations of The Caribbean. The result of that collaboration and development is rezbs.
In 2014, commission-based sales accounted for over 60% of the company's revenue. With 20% of each sale being lost immediately, net revenue was was taking a serious hit.
Within months of switching to rezbs and offering instant booking via the company's website, direct bookings had doubled, halving the amount of commissions lost, and drastically increasing the bottom line.
"Since switching to rezbs, our net profit has been steadily increasing. Not only is the online booking system essential in today's world, the administration system has streamlined ou back office operations massively, further increasing our margins." - Capt. Nigel Bower, President, Powerboat Adventures
rezbs has worked with the leading banks of the Caribbean to ensure wherever your merchant account is, we can support it.

Not running Wordpress? That's fine - simply copy the HTML code for any of your trips and paste into your site - we handle the rest!
Of course! The rezbs platform allows you to create as many packages, trips or excursions as you want, simply, easily and quickly.
When booking, your customers will be presented with a summary of each, and can choose the trip they want on the spot.
Alongside the 'price-per-person' style pricing, you can create trips as 'charters', allowing your guests to book the entire boat/ride/experience.
Digital waivers are a huge time-saver at check-in, so of course, they are part of RezBS.
Not only can you make it easy for guests to sign in on an ipad or touchscreen kiosk at the checkin desk, they can also scan a QR code on their phones to speed up signing for groups.
We take this a step further, and if you choose, you can choose to include a link to the signing area in the pre-trip reminders you create with RezBS.
