Ecalypse 2020 Plans, What to do if your fleet is not available, and our Instagram Update
Social media update
There are 16,600,000 Google searches for “instagram” per month. 95 million photos and videos are shared on Instagram per day. This year, 70.7% of U.S. companies will use Instagram for marketing, edging out Twitter for the first time. 60% of users say that they have learned about a product or service on the platform.

We’re going to be focused on making connections to grow your business in 2020. At this point, we are testing a new broker technology to be connected directly with the Ecalypse plugin.
It will allow for 2 main things:
- anyone with our reservation system can connect to compatible brokers -> allowing access to more sales channels
- allow anyone with our software to be a broker and connect to car rental companies with compatible booking systems (including ours) -> allowing you to be a broker and offer more inventory
Testing of this new piece of technology is in progress with invited partners. Interested parties can still sign up via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Client tip of the week
“Customers can not rent bikes in the Frontend, please help”
A: Check your number of available vehicles in fleet in the back end. This typically happens when you set it to 0. If you do not have the Overbooking Feature enabled in settings, you will need to add a valid number for your customers to be able to make a booking.
