We are Fatih & Tolga from Activi, two enthusiastic young entrepreneurs who have brought together their passion for recreation and the latest technologies to create something extraordinary. Currently, we are the pioneers and the only ones in the Netherlands with a comprehensive platform where direct booking is possible.
How it started
Since our youth, we have always organized large group outings for our friends and family. Moreover, Fatih has also served as an instructor for various outdoor activities. Besides practicing our recreational hobby, we have studied IT together and worked for several large companies. Both in the private and government sectors. We were both active in the staff association, where we were responsible for organizing company outings.
It was during this period that the idea for Activi was born. We kept encountering the same obstacles: long waiting times for offers and difficulty in finding the ideal activity in the Netherlands. We realized this could be better and change was needed.
We want to become the largest outings provider in the Netherlands
Five years ago, Activi was born out of our passion for technology as recreation. The only one in the Netherlands this year, we created the ability to integrate various reservation systems into one platform, allowing you to can book in just two steps.
Our dream is to offer a wide range of activities so that our customers have plenty of choice and can easily plan a fun day out. Currently we already have more than 200 directly bookable activities and we aim to expand this number further. Our vision is to become the largest provider in the Netherlands, where everyone can easily book a day out!
We also have a user-friendly system specially designed for companies, allowing them to organize corporate events quickly and easily. Our team pays personal attention to each corporate client.
What will it cost you and what can you expect from us?
Our revenue model is primarily focused on corporate clients. For regular activities, we charge a commission fee of 10% including VAT per booking. If you use Activi through LeisureKing then here comes 3.9% including VAT per booking at for API connection (regular transaction fees will be waived). We want to emphasize that we are a "no cure, no pay" company. Moreover, we do not offer contracts. For example, if you want to try Activi for 3 months, that is certainly possible! Our partners are not tied to anything!
In return for the commission fee, Activi offers extensive reach and also generates numerous bookings. We also host several events with influencers, which provides broad exposure. Moreover, we run various marketing campaigns, including Google AdWords, TikTok, Instagram and Facebook to achieve even greater reach.
We also visit our current partners to take professional photos and videos. We then use this media for our social channels and to send targeted advertisements to our clients.
What can we do for you?
Regarding our ambition, we aim to offer more than 600 to 1,000 activities in the short term! During the past two months, we have worked relentlessly to accurately post all 200 activities on our platform. For the next two weeks, we are already almost fully booked with video meetings! Fortunately, we have a young and dynamic team that is driven to keep up with and publish all the activities.
An extensive marketing campaign is planned in August and September, during which we expect a significant number of bookings. Therefore, we would like to invite all recreational operators to participate in Activi.
Are you interested in working with Activi?
Are you interested in Activi and would like to work with us? Then send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org containing 'I'm in' and the name of your company. Upon receipt, we will send you an affiliate deal from the LeisureKing environment, after which you can specify which activities you want to offer within LeisureKing. As soon as this is completed, we will get started right away!
The only thing we are still asking from our partners is to send some photos and videos via WeTransfer that we can use for the activities. For the rest, we are waiting for everything regarding the indicated activities to be ready, after which we will create a partner account and provide feedback.
Good news! Behind the scenes we have been busy optimizing the Reservation Overview and the Reservation page within the LeisureKing environment. Both have become more compact and functional. Log in and experience the ease of use for yourself. Below is an overview of the changes we have made.
Updates Reservation Overview
1. Responsive design
The new LeisureKing environment is fully responsive and can now be used optimally on your mobile.
2. New user manual
The User Guide can be opened on any page in the OMS and takes you directly to the section on the page you are on. This way you can always find answers to a specific question.
3. QR code scanning
Did your customer receive a QR code in the mail? Then simply scan it with the camera of your smartphone or a computer scanner. Your reservation will be opened in no time or your ticket will be scanned immediately.
4. Completed reservations
A completed reservation is now recognizable by the new purple color.
5. More compact overview
To keep the overview compact, only the basic details of the reservation are visible. Want to know exactly which items belong to a reservation? Use the arrow to unfold the reservation. Instantly see all details of all reservations? Select in the filter bar: Show Details.
Product reservations 6.
Reservations to which only a product has been added are not shown initially. So a reservation in which you only sold a bottle of soda and handled it directly is not listed among the reservations with activities. Want to see them anyway? In the filter bar, select: Show product reservations.
7. Quick Actions
From now on, you no longer have to go all the way into a reservation to add a deposit to the booking, initiate an open payment or set the reservation to Active or Completed. This can now be done simply from the reservation overview.
8. Back to overview
When you return to the overview from an opened reservation you no longer automatically end up at the top of the overview. You will now be positioned where you left off.
Choice in sorting reservations 9.
The display options of the reservation overview have been expanded. For example, you can now sort by customer name and show reservations by day, week or month.
10. Quick checkout positioning
The quick checkout is now a regular part of the menu.
11. Choose your own branches
It is now possible to show reservations from different branches in one overview. To do this, select in the filter bar: Filter. And add the desired branches.
Updates Reservation Page
Sleeker, clearer and faster. That's the new reservation page in a nutshell.
13. Multiple reservation lines on the same date
Does the reservation already have a reservation line on a certain date? Then this date will be copied to any new reservation line you add.
14. Quick calculation of reservation value and payments
On the reservation page, you can now see at a glance how much the customer still has to pay. Also, the difference between the amount paid and the amount from the reservation lines is immediately visible.
15. Scanning material into your OMS
With the Scan&Go feature, you can make each rental item unique with a QR code. You then easily link the rental item to a reservation by scanning the QR code.
Do you have questions about the updates? If so, please contact us.
If you log into LeisureKing starting March 8, the software will look different than what you're used to. Below we tell you more about the major changes and what this means for you.
The first time you log in you will see a notification about your new unlock code. You need the unlock code to unlock LeisureKing after a short period of inactivity. This makes your account more secure. Because if you accidentally leave your account unattended, the system will automatically lock.
By default, your unlock code is the first 4 letters of your username (case sensitive). But you can also change the code to a 4-digit code. You can change this via Settings > Users.
Your employees are all different. Through the new rights structure, a user account can be specified based on more than 25 different user rights. User rights can be found at Settings > Users.
Note! All of your current users will have "read only" permissions by default. Be sure to reset all user permissions immediately when you log in on March 8, 2022.
Assortment is the new name for Tools. Here you will find all the information related to your activities. Also the Availability can be found here. Under Assortment > Offerings > Activities you will now find a Shopping Cart and Pencil icon. Click on the shopping cart to manage photos and online texts. The pencil icon allows you to change your rates and time slots.
The menu will take you to your Customers' data. Within the Customer Overview you can now easily search for all visitors who have visited your company. Also convenient, you can add a new customer with the click of a button.
The Service page helps you with all your questions regarding LeisureKing. Here you can view the online user manual and quickly get in touch with a support person via Support request. Is there a LeisureKing Add-on you would like to use? You can request that too here.
So, as you can read, there are going to be a lot of changes in OMS. We hope you are as excited about it as we are! Can't wait to use the new features? Then get in touch with us.
Customer experience, that word was central during the development of LeisureKing's new booking module. Although your activities are easily bookable through your website, we go the extra mile! Even faster, clearer, more efficient.... Below we tell you more about the advantages and how you can use the new booking module.
In the menu you will now find Booking modules. Here you will find all your current online windows. But you can also get started directly to create the new booking module. You can then send the embed code to your website administrator so that the booking window will be visible on your website.
New booking module
The new booking module has many nice changes from the old one. For example, the module is equipped with a shopping cart, so your customer can easily fill his day with different activities. Furthermore, the availability is shown faster and more clearly and we have worked hard on a beautiful and modern look. Upsell items are easier to book, desired name and address details can be set up and analytical data can be easily captured.
Create new booking module
When creating a new booking module, you can configure a lot yourself. For example, you choose the type of module, indicate whether your customer can enter a discount code, how payment should be made, which name and address information you need and which activities should be shown in your new booking module.
Styles and themes
The booking modules are fully customizable. From now on, you can easily enter your own website color code when creating a new house style. But that's not all, because any font you can find on Google Fonts can also be used in the new booking module. Thus, the booking module becomes even more part of your website.
Oh, and do you know or are you a CSS Developer? Then create your own theme.
To replace your current online window for the new booking module, you can easily retrieve your new embed code in each module. You can find it at the bottom of the booking module settings. You can also use the embed code to place a shopping cart on your website. In addition, we have already prepared a script for you with which you can easily capture Google Analytics.
Unfortunately, we had to skip it in 2020, but this year we will be back twice over! What can you expect from us at the Recreation Trade Fair booth 259 in hall 2?
LeisureKing is the reservation system for the recreation industry. We are continuously improving and developing ourselves. That's why we will introduce you to the latest features of the past year, but we also like to give you the chance to be the first to see our very latest functionality. For example, we are working on new online window structures and more and more parties are joining us to work together. So your services will soon be even better to sell.
At the recreation trade fair, a number of our partners will also be present with a stand such as:
MplusKASSA - How do you combine your hospitality location with online reservations of your day recreation? Very simple: by letting LeisureKing talk to MplusKASSA, for example. This way you work daily within one system for your reservations and hospitality. Would you like to link a LeisureKing reservation to a restaurant table? We'd be happy to show you how! We will be at the fair with a POS system, and on November 16 and 17 we welcome our partners from LEZA (the company behind MplusKASSA) to our booth to tell you more about it!
Booking Experts - The reservation system for two recreation worlds. Where you know LeisureKing as the reservation system for day recreation, Booking Experts likes to be that for vacation parks and hotels. In August, our link with Booking Experts went live, and now vacation park guests can effortlessly enrich their vacation with fun day activities (via the My Environment). You'll find Booking Experts' booth at number 223.
PAY - PAY has been involved with LeisureKing from day 1. Pay.nl is our payment provider and as partners we continue to work continuously to make the systems work together even better. We are also happy to demonstrate this to you on the exhibition floor.
Dagjeweg - Offer your outings through dagjeweg.nl? This is possible with the link that DagjeWeg has with LeisureKing. Because of our total integration, bookings that are made and paid via DagjeWeg come directly to your LeisureKing environment. You can find DagjeWeg at booth 248. We would love to show you how this link works, but also the links with other booking platforms like Booking.com, GetYourGuide and TUI.
Stop by for coffee in the morning, lunch at noon or drinks at the end of the day! Get your tickets for free via our exhibition page and we'll see you there!
