Pros & Cons

Like 96% recommend

Administration from Motels

That we can speak to a human being for training and resolving problems. It makes life so much easier particularly for on-boarding.

Manager from Boutiques

Ease of use, very intuitive, correct price, reliability. Support available when needed. Ideal for beginners and experts alike

CEO from Vacation Rentals & Villas

The system allows me to work with non instant bookings ! Great onboarding team ! The system seems very easy to use so far, I have been using it for a couple of months only.

Realestate manager from Extended Stay & Serviced Apartments

Automations dont let you edit after they've been saved, you have to duplicate it and edit it then delete the old one.

COO from Vacation Rentals & Villas

Paul has been great with us. There is not much I believe can be improved with our on boarding process.

Operations Manager from Vacation Rentals & Villas

Some of their features like: - Allowing us to include our Company's logo at the invoice part - Allowing us to categorize our listings under "Booking Engine" - Allowing us to customize the direct website

What do you like most?

Knowledgeable customer service. Friendly and efficient. Was able to successfully handle all my questions. I also like the quick response time to my email.

What do you dislike or think could be improved?

So far, I have no complaints. The only thing that would maybe make the customer service more ideal would be to have a 24/7 call hotline to answer questions on the spot.
