I'm looking for a word that can be used for services, bookings, products and reservations.

For example, at a hotel you can reserve a tennis court, book a conference room, order room service and request a wake up service.

What single word can I use that encompasses all of these?

    Are you asking to describe a feature of an online service? Or is this to succinctly describe the function a person would provide at a customer service counter? Or is there some other driving need here... – Tim Ward Jan 26 '16 at 14:17

  • Customer service or customer requirement. I doubt there is a single word. – user140086 Jan 26 '16 at 14:48
  • Agree with @Rathony, although "Guest Services" might have a warm-fuzzier appeal to it. – Tim Ward Jan 26 '16 at 15:52

Ah, I think I've got it. Not a novel word, to be honest, but it just might fit the bill.


a usually multilingual hotel staff member who handles luggage and mail, makes reservations, and arranges tours; broadly : a person employed (as by a business) to make arrangements or run errands

Unfortunately, Conde Nast Traveler has already taken the domain name, concierge.com, so if you're looking for a domain name, this doesn't help.

  • That is not at all what I am looking for. When I say domain, I mean it as in its definition: "a specified sphere of activity or knowledge" – dan-klasson Jan 27 '16 at 2:42

Front-of-house refers to all those types of services that interact with customers, doesn't it?

See here:

(often used as an adjective) the business of dealing with an audience at a theatre, for example selling tickets and programmes
