“We’ve listened to our Customers and giving them a new and improved Hallmaster for 2015”


If you are considering using, or perhaps already using the Hallmaster Booking and Invoicing System, then please take a moment to read on..

Since the first release of Hallmaster we have been working with ACRE, RCC Advisers, Committee Members and Trustees to see the best way of making Hallmaster even better.

With the internet being a big part of our everyday lives people expect to use their laptops and phones to get information about their Local Community as well as the Parish Magazine.

Checking what’s on, current availability of rooms and facilities for hire, making provisional bookings, means customer expectations are high, but Hallmaster will help you meet that demand and stay in control at all times.

Hallmaster is proud to announce the release of our Second Generation Online Booking and Invoicing System for 2015. The additional functionality and levels of security to this new version of Hallmaster will now give an even more professional system with greater stability.

What Hallmaster Booking and Invoicing System already does:

  • Manage multiple rooms in your Hall or Venue.

  • Streamline your enquiry and Venue booking & invoicing system quickly, efficiently and avoid any double bookings or missed payments

  • Customers can view availability, make reservations online in real-time, whilst reducing the amount of calls you take.

  • Authorised users can take control of bookings and create and send invoices if you are ill or away.

  • Promotes your Venue – Publicises Events, Classes and Meetings through Social Media Websites (Facebook, Twitter etc)

  • Integration with your own Website.

  • Helps publicise those already using your facilities to ensure their success

  • Helps Generate Income – Maximise the letting potential of your Hall or Rooms

  • Gives visibility to your Venue 24 hours a day

In Addition the Second Generation Hallmaster will give:

  • Fully responsive website meaning it can be viewed on all devices including iPads, laptops and PCs.

  • New Multi-Venue account – Manage multiple Venues under one account – ideal for Parish and Town Councils managing more than one venue.

  • Dedicated Customer Accounts – Ideal for regular customers, you can assign one or more specific activities (Booking Types) to your Customers. This can be used for improved reporting, and automatic Invoice calculation if using the Invoicing Module. They can login to their own account and view and make bookings without having to re-enter their details again.

  • Create different Room or Facility Hire charge rates – Standard, Local or Regular User.  These can be applied to customers and their activities, and is used in the automatic Invoice calculation.

  • Full automation of Invoice creation – calculated using Room rates specific to customers, their activities and time hired per room.

  • Quicker creation and management of Recurring Bookings

  • Auto-lookup customers from your customer list when creating bookings

  • More permissions for Administrators – addition of a ‘view only’ feature – good for caretakers, cleaners, etc.

  • Better creation of Time Slots where used

  • Easily disable Room Booking function
