Using OwnerRez without a website

Is it possible to use this software as a standalone reservation system, or does it need to be integrated with a website?

In the features > integration section, I read "we want to provide a basic 'start from' page for every owner to give their guests in the event they don't have a website." Does this mean there's a URL to direct people to check out availability and book time? I was only able to find the feature to generate javascript embed code.

Thanks!

Hi Renee,

We have many users who don't have websites. Our system helps you receive inquiries (from all the major listing sites) and quickly create quotes and respond. You don't need any website to do those things.

However, we do not (yet) offer the ability for people to book directly without any interaction from you. We've discussed this feature many times - we feel that the vast majority of traffic comes from inquiries so there's a much stronger need to handle the inquiry/email traffic first.

Hope this helps,

-Michelle

Ah, got it. That makes sense. Is there a way for people to check availability without interacting with us? Is that what the widget does that integrates with an existing site?

Yes, that's what the widget is for. We plan on having a full page calendar you can link to, but that's in the future. You could also give people a link to your Google Calendar, FlipKey or HomeAway calendars since our software keeps all of those up to date for you.
