It is plain and simple, allowing your customers to make standby reservations improves the chance that your available time-slots are filled. Picture a standby reservation as a reservation behind another reservation. When a resource is unavailable, your customers can make a standby reservation. If the primary reservation is cancelled, the standby reservation takes over the primary slot, those affected are notified via email, and instead of lost revenue you just made a sale. In real-time you will see the result of the changes on the schedule.
You may find standby reservations elsewhere, however, Flight Schedule Pro gives you powerful options that the competition has overlooked.
Standby with by-type reservations; a powerful combination:
If you allow reservations by aircraft type, standby reservations can also be made by aircraft type. Let's consider the possibilities. Let's say you have 10 Cessna 172's. All 10 are already reserved from 2pm to 4pm on Saturday afternoon by various customers. An 11th customer also wants a Cessna 172 from 2pm to 4pm, however since all of them are reserved, Customer 11 makes a standby reservation for the aircraft type, Cessna 172. If any reservations for a Cessna 172 are cancelled, Customer 11's standby reservation will become a primary reservation and will be notified that they now have an active reservation. This dramatically increases the chances that your aircraft are utilized, and that your customer gets to fly when they want.
