Pricing & Support FAQs


How much does Fast Track Room Booking cost?

Fast Track Room Booking software starts at under £395 ($632) per concurrent user, when purchased for large numbers of users. This is a one-time perpetual licence cost.


How is Fast Track Room Booking licensed?

Fast Track Room Booking is licensed for the number of ‘concurrent’ users you require. Concurrent refers to using the software at the same time.
For example, if 5 users book rooms, but only 2 will ever use the software at the same time, only 2 user licences need to be purchased. The software can still be accessed by all 5 PC’s.


Can I add additional user licenses after my original purchase?

Absolutely. Additional licenses can be bought when required. Simply contact iiS for further information or to purchase additional licenses.


Where can I buy Fast Track Room Booking?

iiS believes in keeping software costs low. To make a purchase simply click ‘Buy FTRB’ in the main menu to the left and complete the form. An activation key will be sent to you via email


What about support and upgrades?

On line support is £95 per year or 20% of the licences’ cost per year; whichever is higher.


What about training?

Fast Track Room Booking users have reported that the rich Quick Help and Frequently Asked Questions support INSIDE the software means that training is not typically necessary.
If however you do want training then it can be done over the Web. This costs £250 for a 2-hour session (often held with a small group with speakerphone at the user end). If you would rather on-site training then please contact us for further details and costs.


Is a complicated installation involved?

Not at all. Installation is fully automatic from an Install-Shield type application and is performed in virtually no time at all.
