Re: Wheelhouse

Thanks! Or something like it would be a great plugin for for property managers managing multiple units across multiple channels.

Re: Wheelhouse

I am trying WH out on my AirBnB listing. personally not overly impressed as I noticed that they have set some holiday rates lower than I KNOW they could book, and I had to interfere and manually override the price. Overall, i do not think it makes property to book more or earn higher .. I guess my existing rates were already pretty fine tuned...

Re: Wheelhouse

I am experimenting with WH too on AirBNB and TA channels. The drawback is that now my WH TA prices do not necessarily match OR prices as I book TA inquiries via OR.

Re: Wheelhouse

Wheelhouse is a requirement for us, or a way to upload bulk rates via CSV or similar. We price every night of the year differently via Wheelhouse. At a minimum we would need to price 75 or so rate periods per year per property, which would be super labor intensive in the existing interface. Looking forward to continuing to use your service if we can come up with a rate solution!

Re: Wheelhouse

We've been in contact with the Wheelhouse guys, and an integration is possible in theory but we haven't yet completed it. Are you going based on their standard auto price or doing the detailed seasonal adjustments?

We do have a bulk rates/seasons import/export already. If you look under Tools you'll see a Rates/Seasons import (https://secure.ownerreservations.com/bookings/import/rateexcel) and Rates/Season export (https://secure.ownerreservations.com/bookings/import/rateexport) that's based on an Excel template.

Re: Wheelhouse

Your bulk import is a pretty good fit for me - thank you!

Re: Wheelhouse

Bulk import is not quite the same as WH rates are dynamic - they can be adjusted daily based on local demand, seasonality and other factors such as availability of inventory in the area. So I cannot be reimporting them daily :)
I have it turned on on AirBNB and TA, and while if averaged my rates are not far apart from WH rates, WH is more fine tuned to, for example, price some weekdays lower than I would but weekends higher than I typically would, and maybe even make rates look more appealing to the potential guests. I can live without WH on OR, as I can use TA rate set by WH for TA inquiries, ABB gets its own rates via WH and so on.
