Function Hall Booking System
For the past two decades, the world of business – and work in general – has been moving to an online-based way of working. Workflows have become digitized, systems have moved online, and systems are often now automated. These changes have only accelerated in recent months, with the rise of widespread remote working.
For those businesses who rely on hiring out physical spaces and venues, such as function halls, the system that is perhaps most important to modernize is the booking system.
As the main customer-facing system, having an effective booking system can mean the difference between turning a browsing visitor into a customer, or losing a potential client forever.
How will Hallmaster International help…

The Event Organiser:
- Is provided with their own account where they can view their own bookings (and Invoices*)
- Is capable of making a Booking Request from the Hallmaster calendar (if enabled) This Booking Request is then immediately sent to the Booking Officer to be confirmed
- Up to date availability, contact details and venue information of the event is displayed 24/7 (Only when set to Public)

- This increased level of information on the community website enables a more vivid representation of the event, therefore reducing the volume of unnecessary calls to the Booking Officer.
Why Use an Online Function Hall Booking System?
So what can an online booking system offer your function hall? How can it improve your workflow for everyone involved, from venue admin to customer?
The secret is in making use of the internet’s powerful and innate abilities to centralize key tasks.
Function halls by their very nature need to cater to a diverse array of clients and events. The same function hall could hold a town council meeting in the morning, a work fair in the afternoon, and a yoga class in the evening.
Traditional booking systems – for example, a pen and paper diary, calendar, or spreadsheet – have never been well-suited to handling this kind of variation. Having a one size fits all booking system hardly ever works. They simply are not flexible enough. Up until now, these have been the only options – but online booking systems are quickly proving themselves to be vital tools to venues all across the world.
An online booking system can tailor itself to the specific room or venue. Customers can view rooms and make bookings quickly and easily, with no barrier between them and the booking they want to make. Any specific needs they have for their function can also be included in their bookings, giving them the peace of mind that everything will be ready on the day.
“It’s important to have the best online function hall booking system you can find – this is where Hallmaster comes in.”
