"The automation of the payment system - from the guests receiving their invoice, the booking confirmation, and the payment being automatically accredited to the reservation - has left very little gap for human error. It also improves the customer experience because as soon as they’ve made a payment and the reservation is credited, the automated system sends confirmation of the booking."
