*As seen in The Logbook
Many short-let property owners would agree that their businesses rely on their properties being occupied. Be it bed and breakfasts, glamping lodges, boutique hotels or properties on AirBNB if a room is unoccupied it is losing revenue.
An average short-let property owner will feature their property on half a dozen travel websites and travel agencies online. Each one having their own requirements for inputting calendar bookings and updating dates of availability. All-in-all this equals hundreds of hours spent each year putting in these details manually.
If there is no time available to do this, rooms and properties can be vulnerable to double bookings. And even if a person is employed to do this regularly, there is no guarantee against human error and this can be expensive and frustrating.
This is why PROP-SYNC, founded by businessman Nick West, was created to compare property bookings and availability on a number of calendars across multiple OTA’s and PMS’s. Then to sync these and reduce double bookings. Users can then manage their units from one place in the PROP-SYNC admin panel and this enables property owners to know, at any time, which rooms are occupied and for how long.
WHAT IS IT
PROP-SYNC is an automatically updating platform designed for short-let property owners who make use of multiple websites for their guests/occupants. It includes real time calendar availability across multiple channels which means no more manual updates on online bookings and no more time-consuming data duplications and duplicated bookings. Things are kept up to date and straight forward.
WHAT TO EXPECT
PROP-SYNC is designed for people who are not in the IT industry, so it is very user friendly. Regardless, there is always someone on hand should there be any enquiries or questions. Heralding from the IT industry, Nick believes in the importance of communication with customers and answering questions and solving any issues as soon as possible.
Valerie Woods, a user since April 2017 said this regarding PROP-SYNC’s customer service:
“They make the process more understandable and dealt with my concerns professionally. If they couldn’t respond immediately, they would always keep me updated and I knew what was going on. I really liked that because I was more at ease and when using something new, it’s always a daunting time but they really made me feel confident.”
THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND
PROP-SYNC calendars are reconciled nightly (i.e. every business day) for peace of mind.
