ReservationKey Is Also For Property Managers!

Recently we’ve seen an uptick in interest in our system from people that manage vacation rental homes, condos, cabins, etc. I’m happy to say the system works great for these type of users, and continues to improve everyday. 

Here is a link to a recent recommendation from a property manager user in Miami:

And here is an email I recently received from a prospective user that had a huge list of items she is looking for in her new system. It was pretty cool being able to go through this list and check off almost every item as a feature we offer. See below for the complete list and our response.

If you manage short term rentals, definitely consider our product for your needs. Not only do we have a very flexible and full-featured product, but we offer it at a great price.

Video capabilities – not sure what you need? Would be easy to embed youtube videos in the property description with HTML
