Exclusive features from TechSpokes

These new offerings are something we take great pride in providing. Following years of design, testing, and fine-tuning, we have now integrated them into a comprehensive solution joined with our core products. The following distinctive features are nothing short of game-changing for your business.

Last-Minute Deals Module

Shows Guests Their Savings | Compelling Discounts That Drive Bookings

Last Minute Deals

Managing last-minute discounts and displaying savings is a tedious task that normally requires extensive time and expense. That’s why many managers choose yield management tools to handle last-minute rates automatically. But that’s only part of the solution, as guests only see the marked-down rate, and not the savings offered.

Our Last-Minute Deals Module solves this problem! Compatible with any yield management system including PriceLabs, Beyond, and others, it automatically displays your customizable deal messages on property and index pages, and in search results. Both the original and discounted rates are shown in calendars so your guests know what the true value is. Quotes also reflect the original price, discounted price, and discount percentage, providing a compelling reason to book immediately.

TechSpokes’ Last Minute Deals Module also creates a unique last-minute deals collection. Completely automated, it displays all currently available discounted properties. Promote this deals collection in your newsletters, social media, or on other websites. It’s a perfect way to gain traction for your deals, increase traffic, and grow direct bookings.

Your visitors want the best value available to compel booking now. Your homeowners seek to achieve the highest yields. TechSpokes’ Last Minute Deals Module makes it possible to satisfy both.

Hotel-Type Reservation Module

An innovative solution to offer both unit-type and individual-unit bookings

Hotel Module

While most vacation rentals are offered as individual units, many managers operate resorts where they market units grouped by type, similar to hotels. Renting by type, rather than by the specific unit, gives the manager and property owners maximum flexibility. Units can be reassigned up to the guests’ arrival and owners have more access to use their own property since it is the property type that’s being rented rather than a specific unit.

Problem: Track can only offer individual units and doesn’t group them by type. Previously, managers avoided this limitation by creating “virtual” units to represent property types on their websites. That, however, requires manually moving reservations away from “virtual” unit types to actual units, which takes excessive time and attention to avoid problems, and over and under-bookings.

Solution: Let our Hotel-Type Reservation Module easily manage these automatically. Assign units to a unit type in TRACK PMS and let your website technology do the heavy lifting for you.

TechSpokes’ booking engine handles the display, availability, quotes and reservations easily, based on a unit-type, specific units, or both.

We display only one rental property for each unit type in search results and throughout the website. Calendars update automatically to reflect availability for all units of any type. The module then assigns reservations to unique properties, optimizes availability by placing them back-to-back, and also lets you choose priorities such as least-rented books first.

Booking Rule Conflict Resolution Module: “Puka Finder”

Quickly bring thousands of dollars back to your available inventory

Puka Finder

Minimum stays, fixed arrival days, and other booking rules are necessary to successfully optimize your business.

Booking rules managed within Track create conflicts. For example, a 5-night minimum stay will make a valuable 4-night booking impossible. Guests become frustrated when they see dates available but cannot book them online, either abandoning the reservation or requiring them to call to book.

Finding and eliminating booking rule conflicts manually is time-intensive and impractical. Not resolving these, however, results in a substantial loss of revenue.

TechSpokes Puka Finder identifies those restricted dates in availability calendars and lets you return to bookable inventory hundreds of thousands of dollars. Managers see an immediate increase in available nights and potential bookings without spending hours browsing throughout the calendars.

Our intelligent engine works 24/7. First, it analyzes your availability calendars and booking rules. It spots conflicts and provides a customizable report screen directly in your website administration area. You see exactly how much revenue is blocked and why, and can immediately fix any of the issues without ever leaving the report. We then update TRACK rules automatically to resolve the conflicts you select.

The next release of Puka Finder will extend functionality to also allow fixes to occur automatically based on your own rules. As well as automated single night gap up-sells to adjacent reservations.

Affiliate Marketing Module

Offer commissions outside normal distribution channels

Vacation Rentals Affiliate Marketing

A new way to generate revenue partnering with homeowners, other vacation rental companies, and websites to book your inventory. Offer flexible commissions directly to those who drive traffic to your website. Previously available only to OTAs, Affiliate Marketing Module is now exclusively available by TechSpokes.

Let those you choose, whether homeowners, travel agents, travel websites, tourist boards, book your properties online and earn commissions even when they aren’t a formal distribution channel in your PMS.

Exclusively for the vacation rental industry. Affiliate Marketing Module supports cookie or promo code tracking for one-time or lifetime commissions.

Flexible rules allow homeowners to have one commission structure for their own units and a different commission structure when other vacation rental units are booked. Non-homeowners can have a completely different plan, too, while flexible rules and payment structures satisfy every situation.

Affiliate Marketing Module lets others help you by generating more rental income. Offer this as an exclusive benefit of partnering with your company.

Distribution Channel Functionality

Partner with Other TRACK PMS property managers to grow your business

Websites

Let vacation rental managers become distribution channel partners to accept reservations online for each other and pay commissions.

This multi-connection functionality is ideal for those managers who want to combine their marketing efforts and either share common websites or use entirely separate websites to promote direct booking.

Create strategic alliances with your colleagues. We’ll let you offer their inventory on your website to extend your online presence.
