myBookingPal, the leading vacation rental distribution platform with over 200,000 bookable vacation homes worldwide, is delighted to announce a new partnership with Barefoot Technologies, a leading provider of vacation rental management software.
This new partnership and integration will give Barefoot vacation rental and property managers effortless access to demand channels from around the globe, providing increased electronic distribution and exposure for their properties. myBookingPal’s platform will automatically update availability calendars, property level information, take care of payment processing, and feed real time rates to all of their selected distribution channels. myBookingPal will also provide Barefoot property managers with access to a network of 1,000’s of offline travel agents that specialize in vacation rental properties, further strengthening distribution and generating more revenue for them.
“myBookingPal works with our clients to go beyond just synchronizing availability and price that a typical channel manager’s offer. They handle all the property content set up with the Online Travel Agencies (OTAs), automatically update availability calendars and rates, and handle the financial transactions for the Property Managers. myBookingPal also advocates for the vacation rental company with OTAs which is a big benefit to Barefoot and our clients as most OTA’s really don’t understand the nuances of the vacation rental management market,” notes Ed Ulmer, Barefoot Technologies’ CEO.
“We’re very excited to be able to market all of our properties on multiple high performance booking sites such as AirBnB, Expedia and Booking.com. The partnership between Barefoot and BookingPal makes it easy for us to integrate the crucial data necessary for us to be able to participate with these powerful lodging websites, enabling us to reach international travelers. We are looking forward to being able to increase booking performance with increased efficiency. This is a game changer for us and the industry as a whole” said Nick Pullen, CEO of the Pullen Realty Group.
“We are proud to partner with Barefoot,” said Brian Brown, vice president of Business Development at myBookingPal. “The partnership and integration between myBookingPal and Barefoot combines two powerful technologies that will provide property managers using Barefoot with the opportunity to significantly increase bookings for their properties worldwide.”
