SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif., June 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Zeppelin™, INC today announced the worldwide release of Nitrogen™ (https://nitrogen.life), a new cloud based platform for Activity Rental, Tour Operator, Event, Entertainment Venue, Fitness Studio and Food & Beverage based businesses.
"For far too long reservation based businesses have not had access to the proper tools they need to capture bookings in an ever growing online market," said Chad McNeill, CEO of Zeppelin, INC. "Small businesses are the backbone of our economy and providing them with the necessary modern tools to generate business online is critical in a growing global service marketplace."
Nitrogen is a robust platform for reservation based businesses. The Nitrogen platform allows any type of business the ability to capture reservations and process payments directly from their website.
"It was important for us to deliver an image based, easy to use product that could not only streamline the user's business but also be a seamless experience for the guest while making a reservation," said McNeill. "Reservation based businesses are left with very few options in todays market. Existing services are either too expensive, look and feel like they were designed 20 years ago, do not blend seamlessly with existing websites and/or provide poor support "
Nitrogen not only delivers on the key points outlined by CEO Chad McNeill, but positions itself to fill a needed gap within the reservation based market. The streamlined interface almost makes you forget how robust the system is. To start, Nitrogen offers two reservation option types, Reservation Request and Booking Confirmation depending on the business's preference. A Reservation Request setup allows the business owner to communicate directly with the consumer before any reservation is confirmed - which is ideal for boutique businesses looking to have that added customer service experience. The Booking Confirmation setup automates the reservation process by immediately confirming the reservation with a secure credit card approval directly from the business's website.
In both the Reservation Request and Booking Confirmation setup the Nitrogen platform provides outstanding tools for guest folios, bill adjustment & secure payment processing, packages & promotions, reporting and most importantly design customization.
"Having an engine that could plug directly into any business's website was a key feature for us. In order to accomplish this, we needed to give users the tools to customize the look and feel of the engine to fit with their existing branding," McNeill explained. "We wanted to make it easy for anyone to customize the engine. In order to accomplish this, we created two options, Basic and Advanced Styling. The Basic styling allows any user to choose their brand colors and fonts while the Advanced option lets users completely customize the engine through HTML and CSS. In either case the engine can be plugged into any type of website in a matter of minutes."
Additionally, Nitrogen offers countless Package and Promotion combinations within the platform. "We've given businesses the ability to create promotions that not only filled a consumer outreach need but also allowed them the ability to partner with other businesses to drive new customers to their website," McNeill expounded.
The guest's experience via the Nitrogen Booking Engine is equally well thought out with its image based platform. For each item the guest can see up to 7 different images and expand to read more without leaving the page. Searching for availability is also very straightforward as it easily allows you to select your dates to see immediate availability. "Within minutes a guest can view beautiful images of a business's inventory, search for availability, submit payment and receive email confirmation right from the company's website, explained McNeill. "At the same time the business owner or any of the users within the system can receive the same confirmation and see reservations in real-time displayed on the dashboard. This seamless process is great for the business and the guest."
After a detailed tour of Nitrogen, we couldn't help but wonder how a platform this robust could be affordable for a small business. "Price is a key factor in any business decision and that's why we offer Nitrogen at $29 a month," McNeill confirmed. "Nitrogen does not, nor will it, charge any additional fees or hidden processing costs. We're so confident in how beneficial this platform can be for any business that we offer a free, no credit card required, trial at signup and in many cases discount the first several months so that users can familiarize themselves with the platform."
Zeppelin set out to provide a complete, customizable platform, that was cost-effective for businesses to capture reservations on their own website. Nitrogen clearly exceeds the baseline requirements that McNeill set out to accomplish. We are only left to wonder what the company will unveil next. "Nitrogen is merely the start," stated McNeill. "There is no wonder why our platforms are all named after gasses that fill our Skyship™ product. Nitrogen is only the beginning of a broader product that will change the way we search, view and book all types of travel & activity in the future."
