Baton Rouge, LA – Oct 5, 2016 — Premier Campground Management, the growing leader in campground reservation software, is launching Premier RV Club – a new discount camping club that will provide member campgrounds with a new and exclusive sales channel to reach new customers through discounted rates and last-minute deals on their excess inventory. Club members can view and search for discounts on the club’s website (www.premierrvclub.com), find details about the campsite and immediately reserve online. Reservations are booked directly into PCM just like any other reservation – no special handling is required.
Premier Campground Management now has built-in tools that allow campgrounds to publish discounts directly to the club’s website. Campground owners can designate sites to be offered at a discount as well as specify what dates are eligible and how much the discount will be. Many more options are available for precise and full control of the promotions.
“We want to help grow your business. Our goal is not only to help manage your campground, it is to help increase your profits by attracting more customers and filling more sites.” said Billy Chism, President of Stainless Software, Inc. “Discount clubs are a proven way to attract new guests while also increasing occupancy rates. Our new twist on this concept is to provide real-time discounts to members for specific sites that can be redeemed immediately. Campground owners are in full control of when discounts are offered, how they are structured and who is eligible. Most importantly, our system takes care of managing everything so there is no added hassle for the campground staff.”
“Creating and fostering a new community of camping enthusiasts is something we’re very excited about. Premier RV Club will be the place campers visit first when planning a trip and looking for a way to stretch their camping budget” said Billy Chism. “What’s more exciting is that it’s free – free for PCM customers to publish discounts on the club’s website and free lifetime membership for campers that sign-up now.”

“This new, advanced feature gives our customers the power to create new and innovative solutions for their unique needs and set their website apart from the competition.” said Billy Chism, President of Stainless Software. “In addition to retrieving data, you can retrieve and display our top rated interactive campground map. You no longer have to direct your online guests to your reservation page to see your campground’s map. Instead, put it right on your home page. Our interactive map allows your guests to explore your park, get details for each site, filter by site type, view site availability for any dates and even view detailed popup descriptions for anything you want to highlight on your map.”
Highly customized websites and apps can now be created with very tight integration with Premier Campground Management’s cloud-based solution.

“We’re very excited to be able to open up our system to other developers and see what new innovations arise. We plan to continually build upon our API with new features to accommodate our users’ changing needs and continue progress toward our goal of providing campground owners and managers the best possible tools to manage their campground.” said Billy Chism.
