All the pros
of going Pro

Managing — and definitely scaling — a vacation rental business can be a challenging task. And as any business owner knows, every penny spent matters — especially when you’re starting out or managing just a few properties. Investing in the right tools and strategies is a delicate balance of current needs, future goals, and careful financials.

Hostfully’s property management software is a flexible solution to help you scale your business and manage your operations no matter how many properties you manage. In this article, we will explore the benefits that managers with four or fewer properties (Starter Accounts) can expect to get by upgrading to Hostfully’s Pro offerings so you can determine if the added features are a good investment for your business goals. 

*For a limited time (8/1/24 – 8/30/24), you can get an additional savings of $195/month ($20/month savings for 12 months) or $2,122/year ($200 one-time discount)*** <LINK TO UPGRADE OFFER>

Property Management Software:

Starter vs. Pro

You don’t need to manage ten properties to reap the rewards of a Pro account. As your business grows, you might find yourself needing more advanced tools to manage your operations effectively. The Hostfully Pro Account is designed to help you make that jump. Ultimately, your plan should fit your business needs and goals. So, let’s take a look at the differences between both plans and the benefits of upgrading to a Pro account.

“As a property manager just starting out, choosing the right PMS was a daunting task. Choosing the Pro level with Hostfully was a strategic decision. I needed a PMS that could scale with my growing business. Hostfully’s easy-to-use interface and robust features not only allows me to compete with the larger, nationally-known companies through branding and automation but also provide me with a dedicated customer success manager (only included in the Pro level and up). Having [my dedicated customer success manager] to directly address any issues or suggestions has been invaluable in overcoming challenges and optimizing my operations. I look forward to continuing having Hostfully as an integral part of my company as I grow.”

Upgrade feature 1
Multiple user permissions

With a Hostfully Pro Account, you can add multiple users to your account. This feature is particularly useful if you have a team working with you or if you outsource certain tasks, as the upgrade allows each user to have their own login credentials, making it easy to assign and manage responsibilities, and lightening your delegating load.   

Upgrade feature 2
Custom
branding and white labeling

With a Hostfully Pro Account, you can customize a direct booking website with your logo, brand colors, and more to match your brand’s look and feel. Your custom site is key to building repeat guest loyalty, offering exclusive discounts, and saving on OTA fees. Additionally, the feature allows you to white-label your listings on Google, helping you stand out from the competition.

Upgrade feature 3
Guest signatures

Hostfully Pro Accounts include a digital signature feature that simplifies the process. No more chasing down signatures or dealing with software like Docusign. This feature streamlines one of the more tiresome aspects of managing and takes the pressure off you and your guests.

Hostfully’s Pro plan includes SMS and WhatsApp access which saves you time, enhances guest satisfaction, and makes communication easier than ever before.
