The Value of Your Property Management Software’s Partnerships with Direct Distribution Channels
Say you heard it here first, your Vacation Rental Management Company (VRMC) needs multiple channels for marketing. In today’s world your VRMC cannot survive on old-school brochure marketing with your reservation agents waiting at the landline for an inbound call. Your VRMC’s marketing team needs to utilize listing sites, an active website, digital marketing strategies, and online travel agencies (OTAs) to increase your web visibility, drive direct bookings, and bring back repeat guests. To create efficient operations revolving around these marketing priorities, having a property management software (PMS) that integrates with listing channels will help you and your marketing team tremendously.
Learn how direct integrations between your listing channels and your PMS provide accurate and transparent results.
The Importance of a Direct Integration
Your direct distribution channels will automatically do a one or two-way, real-time, sync with your PMS through an application programming interface, also known as an API. This interface allows direct channels and the PMS to build their software precisely to match each channel’s unique features. When a PMS integrates directly with channel listing platforms you are avoiding the risk of discrepancies in pricing, unwanted rate markups and double bookings.
The benefit of this integration you may ask? Having a direct integration in place between your PMS and listing channels give you full transparency and control over your properties to ensure accuracy across all channels. When you consider multiple properties, multiple channels, and many user interactions with your listings, avoiding error is crucial to guest experience and your VRMC’s operations.
Now that you understand the value of direct integrations between your PMS and your listing sites, let’s see who TRACK shares fully integrated partnerships with.
