Simplicity, Accessibility, and Seamless Distribution!
At minimum those are the 3 keys to operating at maximum efficiency for me. Recently after several years with a particular management software company we decided to go with a new software, and we have been running blindly in a maze of uncertainty since.
Needless to say the grass is NOT always greener on the other side. We have lost what I hope is temporary access to our listing sites, and the ability to communicate with our guests, and respond to inquiries. This has brought our systems to a screeching halt in the middle of us accelerating forward.
Don't get me wrong! I really liked, and wanted to love our new management software. Everything seemed so simple, and easy to use, but evidently too simple for our needs. They just aren't in the stage where our partnership can be fruitful for either party. Sometimes you just have to know when it is best part ways, and maybe you'll meet again someday.
Knowing where you are as a owner, manager, or management company and what you require of your software to do for you is crucial in the VR world. I recommend to explore options, utilize free trial periods, and really figure out what fits seamlessly in your system before making a concrete commitment.
