The Vacation Rental Platform Central (VRPc) is a system that receives your inventory data and builds webpages and a booking system with that data.  The data is usually uploaded from a Property Management System, Distribution Channel or can be used in a Stand-Alone mode.  Because there is one instance of the main code, the VRPc has many advantages over the “one-off” model that is used by our competitors.

Benefits:

  • Speed and Reliability – the VRPc software runs on a state-of-the-art server that is designed optimized for this purpose only
  • Low Cost – one instance of the code means that fixes or enhancements apply automatically to all customer systems.  This keeps product costs low.
  • Feature Delivery – software updates are client driven and once a feature is added for one client, that can also be available to all clients….very quickly!
  • Easy Updates – periodic enhancements, fixes and new features are easily available
  • Works with any website design platform or Content Management System
  • Modular System – the VRPc has many Modules (see below) available.  This gives the system flexibility in both features and pricing

he following Modules can be added to the Core VRPc functionality.  These modules will allow you to add features to better fit your business model and in many cases allow you to reach more customers and generate additional online revenue.

Modules:

  • Mobile – automatically deliver the correct design layout for the device used
  • Rate Calculator – add rates, taxes and commissions to booking
