Car-sharing Reservation Systems
Driver Features and Benefits
- Easy to use.
- Configuratble for hourly and/or daily reservations. Any sets or groups of hours up to all 24 can be configured to be offered for reservations. Individual vehicles can have their own configurable set of available hours.
- Password protected so only you can make or cancel your reservations.
- Forgot your password? No problem. On request, the system will e-mail your password only to you. You may also change your password at any time.
- Availability view is user configurable to show from one to 31 days of availability information for all the vehicles in a group starting at any specified date. Unlike other systems which
show when a car is already reserved and thus force users to figure out when it is actually available, our system gives them what they
really need. They don't care so much to see that a car is not available, they want to quickly see when a car is available. Availability
is displayed symbolically and with color so it is easy to use regardless of how many reservations exist.
- Reservation view shows existing reservations for a specific vehicle on the day of interest and allows reserving, canceling, or wait-listing multiple hours or full days.
- Waiting lists. If the vehicle you want is already reserved you can put yourself on a waiting list and, depending on the configuration, automatically be
assigned that reservation when a cancellation occurs or be notified via e-mail when it becomes available.
- E-mail confirmations of each reservation or cancellation are sent both to you (at one or more e-mail addresses) and to the system manager.
- My Reservations report shows all of your reservations and waiting list requests on one screen.
- One-click access to important details about each vehicle, including a picture.
- Available 24-hours a day and 365-days a year from anywhere you can connect to the Internet.
- Wireless access from your PDA such as a Palm Pilot, Handspring Visor, Compaq iPAQ, etc.
- No-spam policy. U-Reserve-It.com is committed to keeping your e-mail address private and will not sell or otherwise release your e-mail address to anyone.
- Members-only bulletin board provides a place to post messages, announcements, items for sale, etc.
