With the automation, BookingPal has the ability to not only build out listings quickly, but also to update new content, rates, and any other changes to the channels with limited delay; allowing vacation rental property management customers to benefit from real-time updates to their properties.
IRVINE, CALIFORNIA – BookingPal, a leader in software technology solutions and distribution for vacation rental property managers and owners worldwide, has announced that it has released a new solution to automate the channel distribution for vacation rental property managers.
With the automation, BookingPal has the ability to not only build out listings quickly, but also to update new content, rates, and any other changes to the channels with limited delay; allowing vacation rental property management customers to benefit from real-time updates to their properties. Most importantly, the new automation process allows property managers to start generating revenue more quickly from our channel partners, including Airbnb, Booking.com, Expedia, HomeAway, Ctrip, and TripAdvisor.
BookingPal’s channel connectivity and onboarding solution not only grants the ability for users to create, modify, and manage their listings directly through the BookingPal platform, but also provides channel-specific property validation to ensure that each property meets the minimum requirements of each channel. Should a channel require content that is not available from the PMS (Property Management Software), BookingPal’s intuitive onboarding design will assist the user in identifying what content is still required so it can be input and saved directly into BookingPal’s database to be distributed to the supported channels. The onboarding solution can be used for new properties being listed for the first time on a channel, or existing listings that are switching over to the BookingPal distribution platform, as well as allowing for the import and management of pre-existing reservations from the channels.
Alex Aydin, BookingPal founder and CEO said “The time it takes to launch a listing has always been an area that property managers wanted us to improve, so that they can start generating revenue from their properties as quickly as possible. Leveraging the full content API capabilities of the various OTAs, and automating the steps required to get a listing created on a channel, we can now get properties created on a channel within minutes – easing the process significantly for our customers.”
