What our clients say

I've reduce my time of work!

Thanks to the Rooms Categorization and the Channel Manager I've reduce the time of work. The plugin is very intuitive in almost all of it. I love the teamwork!

Awesome Support!!

Despite this is the best solution for hotels, and saves you much time and money, is the support that makes the difference. The support is really outstanding, keep it up, guys! Many thanks.
— Diego

A very good booking system together with a very useful channel manager

I purchased it because I needed to integrate my website with all the channels. It made easier for us planning the day thanks to the dashboard and thanks to the overview occupation of the month. We can see which room had to be done first, depending on how late the guests arrived. With all these tools, it is helping us to make a plan every morning for the entire day and to focus our attention commercially.
