Colorado-based startup Roomify.us (https://roomify.us) launches a new web-based tool that allows anyone to easily create beautiful accommodation booking sites and destination guides.
Roomify for Accommodations brings together an incredible mix of powerful features. Site owners can curate their own list of vacation rentals, hotels and B&Bs under a single roof. Using powerful content management tools they can create beautiful, specialized content and share their location or topic expertise with the world while generating revenue from bookings.
Property owners can login and manage property descriptions, availability, prices and bookings while Roomify technology makes sure that bookings are synced with other sites and tools to avoid double bookings – giving owners peace of mind.
Guests can search for availability and book instantly or have Conversations with owners on the site (another Roomify innovation). Conversations allow owners to get to know guests and make specialized price offers – a huge incentive for guests to get in touch through the site.
Unlike other tools that are limited to just vacation rental listings and are one-size-fits-all, Roomify for Accommodations caters for vacation rentals, hotels and B&Bs and is fully customizable. With the Roomify self-hosting option there is complete access to all the code running this powerful tool and the client is 100% independent to run their business even if Roomify is no longer involved. Alternatively, the client can host on the Roomify Cloud for ease of mind and guaranteed support. They can still always choose to move everything (their data and code) to any other suitable web hosting solution. No other company provides this level of freedom.
Co-founders Adrian Rollett, Cecily Borzillo and Ronald Ashri created Roomify to bring powerful booking solutions combined with elegant websites to everyone. “Our core technologies are all 100% open-source”, says Ronald, “as we don’t believe clients should be held hostage to a specific vendor. It enables us to react faster and research innovative solutions constantly.”
Niche destination sites represent a significant part of the future of travel as people are tired of having to trawl through hundreds and hundreds of listings to find something suitable. “We want to empower anyone with great local or topic travel knowledge to share that with everyone and create a profitable, easy to manage business along the way”.
