For small independent properties seeking a single system to support all of their hospitality management needs, we recommend Dashbell. Dashbell is a user-friendly, 100% web-based solution that combines robust tools for managing your online bookings, property maintenance, and channel partners, all from a single, centralized location.
Dashbell sets itself apart because it's not an Online Travel Agency, so property owners and managers don't have to worry about the 10 - 20% average commissions that OTAs can charge. Instead, Dashbell empowers small properties manage and sell their rooms in order to get more direct bookings on their own personal site.
Dashbell offers a fully customizable booking widget and credit card verification technology, which makes it simple for site visitors to book their stay directly on the property's website. As well, the software includes a handy tool called TripConnect, which lets users manage bookings from their existing TripAdvisor profile. In addition to TripAdvisor, Dashbell seamlessly integrates with other partner channels, including popular sites like Expedia, Airbnb, Booking. com, and more.
Along with online booking and partner management tools, Dashbell also includes a sophisticated reservation management module that gives users a single view into reservations across every channel. Advanced rate management, housekeeping, and performance and occupancy reporting are included, and the system's guest management functionality includes automated reminders to travelers.
Dashbell was designed to support the unique needs of independent lodgings with less than 50 rooms, including B&Bs, hostels, inns, vacation rentals, campgrounds, and more.
