VillaGoGo!

The site is built using our own property management system Villagogo. As you’d expect, this takes care of every aspect of the property bookings, and availability. Built in Laravel, the interface allows for the admin team at Exclusive Private Villas to take bookings both on their site and over the phone. For this luxury end of the market, many clients prefer a phone call to finalise a booking, for those who don’t there’s the option to instant book. 

Villagogo is multi-currency and it is perfectly suited for use on large travel websites such as Exclusive Private Villas who operate out of both the US and UK. Through this we promote villas on multiple channels, integrate inbound and outbound feeds in realtime over our powerful API. EPV Keep their customers coming back for more, with their Zoho CRM.

To help the process run smoothly, the booking system, CRM and other analytics platforms are fully integrated. The CRM increases bookings, the increased booking data helps refine the offering and deepens the insight into what customers are looking for.

The Villagogo booking system goes a step further by providing their in-office team with a complete overview as to availability and payment status, thereby ensuring that any phone enquiries can be dealt with with an informed overview and suitable options and upsells can be proposed. Secure payments, analytics, conversion tracking, tax, are all covered by Villagogo.

For sales teams, the most important feature for teams is the integration with a worthy CRM. We integrate with live feeds to Salesforce or Zoho. The benefits of this approach are: 

• Higher conversion rates through analytics, tracking users and access to all the data to expand and improve your inventory

• Less time spent administering, bringing the ability to manage more destinations and bookings.

• Detailed reporting on every stage of payment and booking conversion.

We have focused our development on building a stable platform that helps manage bookings with remarkable ease. Whilst already suited to agents managing multiple properties across the globe, the system is open to further customisation. For each client we build add-ons, giving them the benefit of a full-featured bespoke system with none of the risk or upfront investment required.

Travel is about relationships

Selling in the travel industry is about building relationships and understanding what your customers want before they know they want it. The relationship doesn’t start or end with the booking, but runs from a customer’s first interaction with you through to the follow up after the holiday.

No system is an island

The secret to the success behind any travel site we have built has always been on the strength of its inventory. The sites we have been involved with have been able to seamlessly integrate with the search both on their website and on other sites. 

We know that speed matters. Every second a page is loading or your search is running is costing you sales and valuable SEO rankings. If your pagespeed is a problem, this directly impacts sales. Managing travel bookings at scale is a complex task. The right platform gives you faster, more relevant search results.

If you’d like to know more about Villagogo or our take on booking systems as a whole, get in touch. We’re not about making you use our templates or CMS to manage the content on your website. We’re different, and can integrate easily with an existing website or any CMS. Obviously, using our design skills makes sense in many ways, but we can work with you to build or integrate to any set of requirements.
