So you’ve finally made the leap and purchased a vacation rental software (hopefully, Roomify for Accommodations!) that meets your needs and showcases your property as it deserves to be showcased. The next step is populating the website with content. We posted last week on selecting the proper photos, and while this is a very important part of bringing your site up to speed, it is not the only... Read More

Pictures are one of the most important factors influencing a traveler during the booking process. High quality pictures are fundamental to highlighting your property’s unique characteristics; they can enhance your image and give a professional look to your website. Thanks to the immediate, and predominantly emotional, impact of pictures, the visual message often overtakes the written message.... Read More

Let’s face it, we live in a digital age where most business transactions are in some way aided or guided by the internet. For transactions, information, or guidance, we want to see online evidence. The expectations of your vacation rental customers are no different. A potential guest may be able to find you on one of the large booking sites, but where you truly draw them in and convince them of... Read More

While there are many, many software packages and online services available for the vacation rental market, only Roomify for Accommodations is completely free to download, use and modify, without any licensing, per-booking or per-property fees.(*) While open source software hasn’t made the same in-roads in the travel industry as many others, we believe it’s past time. Here’s why:   1. Vendor lock-... Read More

We are thrilled to announce that as of today, Roomify for Accommodations is freely available and, as always, completely open source! Today we're going to share some of our motivations for making rfa widely available, and talk about some of the projects we hope to see in the community. What: RfA is a rich, fully-featured application for building accommodations websites with... Read More

Today we are thrilled to announce the release of our new Accommodations platform. The new Accommodations platform will power our vacation rental, B&B and multi-property solutions and is available on the Roomify Cloud or as a self-hosted solution. At its heart lies our unique open-source booking library - BAT - and the feature set reflects the experience gained working with our wonderful... Read More

This, of course, means that BAT makes no assumptions about what you are going to book or how you are going to book it. BAT provides the tools with which you can define exactly what you need. In order to help you with your configuration of BAT we have put together documentation. In order to have a consistent example, throughout the documentation we develop an example application for booking... Read More

Our Booking and Availability Management Tools have reached beta release stage. This means that we have covered all the main features for the 1.0 version of the library and we will now focus on bug fixes and UI improvements as well as developing documentation and a more comprehensive test suite. The BAT PHP library is now version 1.0.0-beta1 while the Drupal module is at 7.x-1.0-beta1. What is... Read More

Last week we released BAT - our Bookings and Availability Management toolkit as well as a Drupal module for BAT.  We are using BAT to build the new version of our Rooms module as well as other products. However, BAT is much more than an engine for nightly bookings. It also allows us to build any sort of booking / resource management tool. So we asked: "What would it take to build a resource...

Towards the end of October 2015 we announced a broader vision for our company. Roomify aims to provide the tools that will allow anyone to manage the booking and availability of resources - whatever those may be. We consider this a core component of an open sharing economy platform. After that announcement, we went to work. We kept our head down, the coffee (and tea) flowing and focused on what... Read More

Today we are very excited to announce a broader vision for what we are doing at Roomify. Roomify started out with the aim of addressing the booking and reservation problem within the hospitality industry - and that remains a key goal for us. Some time ago, however, we had the opportunity to take a break and look at the bigger picture. We evaluated what is at the core of the open source tools we... Read More

As part of our work on Rooms Tours, (coming soon!) we wanted to give users the ability to quickly and easily input regular tour dates/times. (This would be something like: California Wine Country Tour, every week from Tuesday at noon to Thursday noon, from May 15th through September 15th.) We quickly thought of using something like the Google calendar interface for inputting recurring calendar... Read More

The overwhelming majority of businesses in the Drupal community are consulting agencies. Groups of experts that make their skills available to clients at any hourly or daily rate. A much smaller number of Drupal businesses are creating products using Drupal. The problems product companies face are quite different and we are hoping to meet other product companies and share experiences at DrupalCon... Read More

It’s now just over three months since roomify launched. We’ve been enjoying the process immensely, despite the inevitable frustration of trying to set up everything that a business requires. What has kept us going is the satisfaction of hitting product milestones, and hearing back from users and clients about how our products are helping them. (We also like getting paid - that’s awesome too!). As... Read More

These reservation tools allow users to find and book the thing they are looking for with ease, and get the best deal possible.
