Vacation Rental Glossary

Channel Manager

Vacation rental metrics or key performance indicators are critical measurable aspects of your business that you can lean on to understand and manage your business better. From occupancy rates to referrals your vacation rental is getting, it can be helpful to track these metrics. “You can’t improve what you don’t measure!”

If you understand the business metrics, you and/or the vacation rentals’ manager will be able to analyze the return on your investment and return on revenue more accurately to improve your operations.

A channel manager is a software tool that allows you to sell rooms on several connected booking sites (channels) simultaneously. The software will automatically update your availability across sites when a booking is made. Essentially, it is the technological equivalent of having a 24/7 global sales and reservations department.
