Is your PMS enough for distribution?

Channel Managers and Hotel Property Management Systems have been around for quite a few years now. Whether you are a real estate agency, a hotel, a B&B manager or the owner of some family properties, there are chances that you are looking for the type of software that can help you out the best. Here are some differences between Channel Management systems and Property Management Systems, which can let you understand such platforms better and take an informed decision.

Is your PMS enough for distribution

Purpose

Property Management Systems are a type of software system that is created to make daily operations management easier for real estate companies, hotels or rental agencies. The aim is to assign, schedule and organize tasks and these are especially helpful for reporting, accounting and staff management. Channel Managers, on the other hand, specialize in distributing short-term rentals to listing websites, whether it comes to wholesalers, GDS, Metasearch, Vacation Rental sites or OTAs.

Capability

PMS systems are created originally in the form of front desk hotel software, and are made to follow trends in the market and can redirect them to vacation rentals or some other expanding sector. With the use of this type of system, you can spend less time in dealing with business and get more time to concentrate on guest experience and guests.

A PMS channel manager can let you deal with time-consuming operations of managing a vacation rental business. A PMS channel manager updates information automatically across every booking channel and can automate payments and online reservations. Dedicated channel managers, however, are online distribution specialists and can frequently offer much more connections across many channels.

Sophistication

When you choose a property management system integrated with a channel manager, it can help you in online property management and can ensure listing distribution for you across many websites. A PMS or company has several advantages. Property management systems offer automated guest communication services, business performance analytics, in-built accounting services and many more.

PMS coming with an in-built channel manager can be very useful for your own business. A dedicated channel manager is useful in all those cases where there is a drop in the functionality of a property management system. There are more sophisticated capabilities of dedicated channel managers, which can let you create a very complex type of pricing model as per your wish. While PMSes and channel managers tend to vary in nature, the former lacks the sophisticated features that are part of dedicated channel managers – such as pushing right property specs and dealing with a complicated pricing model.

Support

A few property management firms have a team comprising of local employees that care for on-site upkeep and maintenance. But you can expect a built-in expert team with dedicated channel managers, which come with the support of a team comprising of expert distribution professionals. The team of experts of the developer company has a direct communication line with booking websites as well as other channels, due to the fact that a high volume of properties is offered by dedicated channel managers to listing websites.

The online global travel market was over $629 billion in overall worth in 2017 and is anticipated to reach a figure of around $818bn by the year 2020. These are some travel statistics that you must know about for the year 2020.

Longer family holidays are becoming more popular

These days, family holidays spanning for a longer time are up. While it is always that family trips have been a staple part of annual programs, family holidays are being influenced too much by @travelling_family, @byjetpack, @thebucketlistfamily and the likes. By 2020, it is figured that around 50% of the labor force of America and the UK will comprise of freelancers. 40% more kids got home-schooled in the year 2017 instead of in 2014 (comprising of as many as 48,000). It comes as no surprise that the freedom offered by home-schooling is being embraced by parents.

Rise of Online Travel Research

These days, more and more travellers are carrying out research over the World Wide Web to know about the different types of travel options, accommodations etc available. The travel website Tripadvisor is being used increasingly to find out about hotels, restaurants, flights and more. Tripadvisor, with over 325 users every month, is in the position to have an impact on travel purchases online. Travelers who visit this website are also likelier to take time on research, with over 80% taking over 4 weeks to finish a purchase. This is a popular point to start for lots of travel searches, particularly in the preliminary stages of travel research.

Solo Travel is getting friendlier

These days, the introduction of co-living apartments is being given more and more prominence. These let solo travellers come across people on their trips having a similar mindset. WeLive is a leading name in co-living that has apartment complexes these days, with hot tubs, yoga classes, events programs, shared social leaders etc in Crystal City and New York. Travellers can stay in these complexes for a few months or only a few days. Dublin Airport made a claim that 57% out of its estimated 31.5 million passengers in 2018 were solo travellers. In Solo Travel in 2020, younger travellers can be expected more than ever earlier.

Travel decisions will be impacted by Generation Alpha

The term ‘Generation Alpha’ means the generation of people who were born after the year 2010, and is exhibiting more signs of having an impact on family travel planning and decisions than was supposed previously, as per Expedia Group Media Solutions. According to the study of Expedia Group 2019 globally, on an average, travellers from Generation Alpha are making over 3 family vacations in a calendar year.

According to Short Term Rentals 2019, 95% of family trippers mentioned that their priority was to keep their families happy and entertained, while other important priorities were closest theme parks or main attractions (as mentioned by 85%), making travel plans around the time of school holidays (mentioned by 85%), outdoor activities (mentioned by 85%) and value and deals (mentioned by 89%).
