Kigo's vacation rental management software integrates with websites and online booking platforms to offer online reservations and booking with online payments and a reservation manager. However, with no other functions, it is not a full vacation property management software program.
A booking calendar allows you to integrate online booking and reservation directly into your website to offer instant reservations and online payments. A reservation management system immediately processes bookings and marks property as booked for that period to avoid double-bookings problems.
Online payment integration allows you to accept credit cards and other payment options directly on your website and log them in the vacation rental software's reservation manager with the guest and the reservation, marking it as paid. You can accept security deposits, full payments and various discounts.
You can also set up seasonal pricing, different types of rental units, and pricing for the length of stay and different numbers of guests. This allows you to automate your reservation system to save money and to speed up rentals because potential guests won't have to wait for your business hours to make a reservation.
The vacation rental manager offers eSignature functions and automatic document email, allowing you to send rental agreements to guests as soon as they finish the reservation. This allows them to get the agreement back to you as quickly as possible.
Calendar integration and synchronization allows you to sync with all of your employee schedules, including iCal, Google Calendar, Outlook, iPhone and other popular options. This allows you to automate notifications and reminders for cleaning, greetings and maintenance before a guest arrives. Email templates and automatic email support allow you to greet guests, send important information and send documents. You can choose from a number of included templates or generate your own for customized emails.
The vacation home rental manager offers a reporting function for creating income and payment reports, making it simple to see most of your cash flow. However, with no expense reporting or integration, you do not get any reports on actual earnings. You cannot integrate with QuickBooks or another type of accounting software.
Kigo offers a powerful vacation rental manager if you are looking to add online reservations and bookings but does not offer much else in terms of services.
