So, it's taken a bit, we thought this would be ready by extravaganza, but took us a bit longer, but we are going to be uploading the new package module on Wednesday Evening. This module will allow field owners to create as many custom packages as they wish, each having a different minimum and max number of players, duration, booking intervals, deposit, etc.
And all along we've had the ability to limit the number of people at the field at any given time. But with this new system, you can now limit the number of any given package at any time. For example, let's assume you do a Premier Package where each group gets their own personal ref. You can limit to only 2 of those going at any given time, or 1, or 4, etc.
Over and above that, you can place limitations on the amount of available equipment that is associated with a package. For example, lets assume you also do laser tag at your field, and have 25 guns. You can go into the Equipment section, and create a "Laser Tag Gun" item, and set it's quantity to 25. Then you can assign that item to the Laser Tag Package. So then perhaps you have 2 fields for laser tag play, and allow up to 20 in a group. You wold not want two groups of 15 booking in if you only have 25 guns. So it will watch your inventory, and if a group of 15 is using the guns, it will only allow 10 more until the time for the first group has expired, putting their guns back into available inventory.
It really has huge flexibility in how it can now handle the different aspects of fine tuning the number of people you want moving, the number of groups, or the number of available items.
I have a video at https://vantora.com/videos.asp#package1
that will walk you through part of the process if you want to check it out.
If you are one of the 75 or so fields that are already using our package, the system will take your existing bookings, and simply convert them into "Standard Package" bookings, with the same rules, minimums, etc that you are presently using. You can then go in and create more, edit, etc!
Let me know what you think, and feel free to post up any questions.
