Here’s how:

1. Wide portal selection

Kigo offers a range of portal partners with global reach. This multiplies the number of guests your business can appeal to, resulting in more booking opportunities.

2. Cloud-based solution

A cloud-based solution merges and manages all bookings and inquiries in one universal reservation system.

3. Double booking prevention

With the right solution, rates and availability calendar and property information are synced across all channel partners, eliminating the possibility of double bookings.

 “Since I have been using Kigo, everything is going smoothly and I am having no more double bookings. Not only are the availabilities perfectly synchronized, but all the descriptions are in place, so if anything changes in the houses of my agency, they get directly changed on all channels. I didn’t think that it would be such a difference in the experience, but if you want to grow an agency it’s important that every channel gets synced in the same way. Now I can handle a lot more houses than ever before.”

-Till Pernay, CEO, Private Properties

4. Intuitive interface

An intuitive interface simplifies communication with guests, so all inquiries can be answered quickly.

5. Responsive, expert support team
