Really saves a lot of work in daily business of Apartment Rentals. Overall a great software!

2017-06-22

No more double-bookings. easy to manage 23 properties. would not like to miss it!

Pros

Also the offers for booking portal partners for the CM (Channel Management) are definitely better than the most other CM Systems on the market.

Cons

Sometimes languages are mixed and you may find English-Spanish or German-Spanish in one sentence. Some booking portals have problems with connecting the right features, but this is rather a individual problem of the portals themselves.

Great experience. And great job from Avantio

2019-10-23

In the area of tourist rentals everything has changed, especially with the introduction in the market of small businesses like ours.

Pros

It is very easy to configure templates that automate processes with reservations. The interaction of the web with the reservation system is exceptionally good.

Cons

The price is the biggest obstacle. But not only Avantio, we made several comparisons with different companies and all have similar prices. I understand that this type of software requires a great team behind and that costs money.

Great product for the money

2019-10-17

Avantio is probably one of the best property management software products on the market, we have trialed a few other softwares and wasted a lot of money along the way with many promising you everything but actual deliver nothing.

Pros

The product is also good value for money with no commission on bookings.

Cons

Avantio does lack some features I would like but I know they are working on them and I am confident that within the next year I will have all the features I need.

PMS, Channel Manager and Website, 3 in 1.

2018-06-26

Pros

It is very helpful, with just 1 software you can manage bookings, payments, cleaners, owners, accommodations, very easy Channel Manager you can connect with any portal (Booking.com, Airbnb, Expedia, HomeAway, Holidu....) and the website.

Cons

No app available. It takes too long if you want to change some content on your website because you cannot manage it directly.

Hi Dolores. Thank you very much for your review - the Short Let London website is definitely one of our favourites!
There are many aspects of the website you can manage directly, but not all, that's correct. We'll do our best to increase the turn-around times for those changes, and give you some extra training how to manage your website and listings from the software

Plus qu'un logiciel: une équipe !

2019-11-28

Nous allons aussi dorénavant travailler avec de nouveaux portails comme Booking ou intégrer la passerelle directe avec Airbnb que nous avions l'habitude de gérer séparément.

Pros

De nombreuses passerelles vers tous les plus grands portails: Booking, Homeaway, Airbnb, Holidu et pleins d'autres en fonction des profils recherchés.

Cons

Beaucoup de projets en cours de développement, du coup, il peut y avoir du retard pour certains d'entre eux notamment si les évolutions de la législation obligent à revoir les priorités. Il est vrai que développer un outil à visée mondiale ce n'est pas facile. Nous avions par exemple espéré l'intégration de la signature électronique, qui commence à peine. La comptabilité a pris pas mal de retard aussi mais cela arrive maintenant et nous soulagera par rapport à nos obligations légales.

Avantio Channel Manager permitted us to increase our company

2018-01-02

Pros

We save so much time and many mistakes, with the synchronisation of the information of our properties to the most important portals. The management with the owner of the properties we represent is complete and efective, saving us time and mistakes.

Cons

The technical support is sometimes not as fast as needed. It is getting slow to move from one separator to the other.

Probably the best holiday villa management platform out there.

2021-02-24

I used my previous booking platform for almost 10 years and encountered numerous issues as the system was constantly revised and the results were very much hit and miss.

Pros

Very efficient and easy channel connection which pleasantly surprised me as our previous platform wasn't too good at this.

Cons

Currently no mobile app and this should be rectified asap.

Trusted and reliable Partner

2021-03-30

Therefore, even though there are some small limitations (especially on the Booking Engine side), having such an efficient Customer Support makes Avantio a perfect partner!

Pros

Among the various features present in Avantio, certainly the ease of connection with almost all the online booking portals is the most appreciable.

Cons

There are a few small aspects that are improvable on the user side, including having the VRMS responsive so that it can be used with mobile devices.

Great software to manage your hotel's booking

2020-05-14

We manage over 200 touristic apartments, Avantio is the brain, the main system we rely on to booking, clean them, manage them, and have our own database wherever we go and whatever we want.

Pros

Pretty easy software to use and manage all the bookings received from different websites.

Cons

But there is some items/features that they aren't available for iPhones making the software a little useless in those devices.
