The Lodgix inquiry management system is in the process of being recoded into a Unified Inbox. The Unified Inbox will allow property managers to manage all guest communications from one centralized interface regardless of source. This includes pre-booking and post-booking communication. Communication from the channels, the guest app, your website, and email will all be included.
Phase 1 of this project introduces the Unified Inbox as an inquiry management tool only.
