New Web Tech for Vacation Rental Owners
Lodgify and Airbnb have recently entered into a partnership which will allow for a seamless two-way service between the two vacation-rental platforms, using a full API integration.
Lodgify members can now use the company’s browser-based vacation-rental software solution to manage every aspect of their properties, directly from their Lodgify website. The new partnership creates a conduit through which all property-related information, including booking details, rate information, lodging availability, and much more, is automatically synchronized between the two services in real time.
Messages, reviews, and updates to the property are also updated on both services as they occur. In addition, Lodgify users can now advertise their listings and properties on Airbnb in a matter of a few simple clicks.
