Our older users know that it took a few years for OwnerRez to break into the channel API integration game. We avoided using third party software and lobbied hard for the channels to work with us directly. It paid off, and a year ago we got our own direct API integrations off the ground. OwnerRez now has the best channel management features available in the vacation rental industry.
While many of our competitors offer channel management of some kind (many use third party managers), many of those competitors don't work to improve those features or keep up with the latest channel standards and features.
Here at OwnerRez, our foot has never lifted off the gas pedal. We meet with our channel partners monthly and keep up to date with all their latest features. For instance, we are about ready to release Cancellation Policies in OwnerRez. These allow you to define your own cancellation periods and percentages, coinciding with a new custom cancellations feature that HomeAway offers via API. We also recently added House Manual support and Custom Taxes for Airbnb.
And the results have paid off. Last month, in the middle of coronavirus hysteria, OwnerRez achieved Preferred Partner status with HomeAway.
Of the many vacation rental software apps on the market, only a select few have achieved Preferred Status. You can see OwnerRez now listed in the HomeAway partner directory. Elite status - here we come!
