Pros: E' un software che risponde alle esigenze dell'azienda e che fa diventare le cose difficili facili. Veramente complimenti a quanti l'hanno realizzato.

Cons: Consiglio di acquistare questo software per le sue funzionalita' e l'adattamento alle richieste del mercato.

Overall: Posso fare i complimenti a Magarental per la disponibilita¿ e per la professionalita¿ che ci ha dimostrato a risolvere i nostri problemi inerenti alla gestione delle offerte e delle prenotazioni che avevamo in precedenza con il sito web. Dopo l¿affiancamento avuto con i collaboratori della Magarental con un particolare plauso alla Signora Giulia per la sua paziente opera di sopportazione alle nostre incessanti richieste, siamo riusciti ad ottenere un ottimo e valido strumento che ci permette di convertire in maniera piu¿ veloce e dinamica le conferme e soprattutto con un notevole incremento in termini di posizionamento organico grazie alla gestione seo di Magarental. I prossimi obiettivi sono gia¿ in fase di sviluppo e parliamo di implementare la piattaforma per il booking online interconnessa ai maggiori Global Distribution System. Se il buongiorno si vede dal mattino penso che siamo sulla strada giusta.

Recommendations to other buyers: Grazie alla flessibilita' sconvolgente della piattaforma sono riuscito ad ottenere il mio progetto ideale senza spendere una fortuna.

Comments: Magarental is professional and reliable. They are professional in their conduct with clients and also their products allow your business to move to the next level. Thanks to Federico, the website is looking very appealing to Naples Villas' target audience. Giulia, who is part of the customer service team, is very reliable and delivers what she promises. Her technical knowledge and support have been invaluable to getting Magarental system up and running for our business. Isaac has also provided further support, as necessary, to enable us to take full advantage of all that Magarental has to offer. Magarental has so much more than other similar products that I have used in the past or looked into purchasing. Their back office is very sophisticated namely the statistics section and the channel manager is very powerful as it enables you to use channels that others do not offer.

Comments: Magarental es una empresa muy muy buena para desarrollar páginas webs. Primero, me consultaron sobre mi proyecto vs plan de negocio on-line, y me dieron su punto de vista en función de su experiencia, y a partir de ahí surgió un gran negocio. Me gustó mucho que aportaran sus ideas en el proyecto. Todo muy profesional ¿ la primera semana fue trabajando con el diseñador Federico - Italiano. Y después en Suiza se empezó el desarrollo del web site. Tienen una mezcla perfecta de Italy para el Diseno y Suiza para la programación. Tiempo de entrega, fue el programado desde un inicio. Siempre están activos todo el tiempo para responder cualquier duda. El back office, muy fácil de usar (User friendly). El resultado del desarrollo ha sido mejor de lo esperado - He duplicado mis ventas online. Los recomiendo.

Comments: I have changed several tools before Magarental, and they always promised a lot, but couldn't handle all my issues. Either they had problems with iCal, or XML or I received overbookings anyway. Magarental is a little bit complex tool for start using (there are tons of functionalities that I still don't use), but once when you get familiar, it's excellent, and it does job you are paying for. I definitely recommend!

Comments: It brings me no pleasure at all to leave this review, I write this only to share my experience so that others considering Magarental can make an more educated and informed decision.

Initially I chose Magarental as I saw the potential it could have in helping our business more productive and efficient. It offers an "all in one" solution which includes a PMS (Property Management System), Channel Manager, and option to build an integrated website, which we went for.

Before we signed up, the project / sales manager was always available and on hand for questions I had. After the signup however, it was a totally different story.

What really lets the product down is the lack of customer service and leadership behind their team.

If I had an issue and needed an urgent answer sometimes it literally took 4 to 5 days to get a response from the support team. Some questions went weeks without an answer, and many problems we had were still not solved. I spent more time chasing the Magarental team which left me less time to manage my business.

SIGNUP PROCESS & INITIAL CHANNEL MANAGER SETUP:
The system is built for programmers NOT for apartment managers. The entire process of setting up the calendars, pricing, a new property into the system and mapping to a new channel, is a long and arduous process. The system was not built to be user friendly, so you will spend hours and hours learning to setup even one property in the system. I spent countless calls with the Magarental team as the system is archaic and complicated. When trying to train the staff on how to use the system, they found it equally as difficult. Other systems on the market take just minutes to learn. Magarental takes hours and days, months.

WEBSITE BUILDING:
While Magarental offers great looking integrated websites, don't expect much support in this department. The initial contract we signed stated a 3 month lead time for the website to be completed. After the 3 month period I contacted Magarental to find out what the progress was, their answer was "The development team said you haven't updated all your information". What a shocking answer! At no point whatsoever had the Magarental team notified me that any input was needed from my side. Had I not brought the issue up, The website probably would not have been built! It took another 3 months (6 months total) before the website was even close to being completed. There was a complete lack of project management.

Recommendations to other buyers: We have since recently switched to another product. I can only describe the switch as like man evolving from an ice age Neanderthal to flying a modern jet plane. In essence, if you are looking for a system which is intuitive, user friendly, and has great customer service, look elsewhere. There are many other products out there which are far more superior. Magarental and its customer support will leave you feeling frustrated and disappointed.

I'm very surprised by reading this review from a person who has always been late paying the flat rate. He only paid the flat after many reminder emails of admin, he's not a professional P.M.Furthermore he signed for a basic agree which means a template without any modifications but it worked out completely different. We did many modifications upon his request and he was satisfied fro this.He did not pay anything more for that, never.Reading that there is a lack of customer service is very surprising. When we working on the modifications was ok for him and we¿re always online for any help or customer service but when a customer doesn't pay why does he expect all this customer service!? Also to help him out we decided to let him pay the website (www.oasisapartments.eu) not immediately but every month partly on top of the flats and we must receive 4 yet.He wrote us the stop the payments but continue use MR without pay and we have simply blocked the account and he wrote the review.

Comments: After having used most of the vacation rental software on the market and found that many have major bugs, or have security or legal issues that are definitely to be avoided.
I have finally come across magarental who not only are much cheaper than comparable software, they are fast, courteous, precise and their customer support greatly excelled my expectations.
I would recommend to any agency that needs a REAL WORKING software and a BEAUTIFUL website.

Recommendations to other buyers: Much of the data and all the pphotos from our previous management program were imported directly by magarentals which saved us a lot of time.

Comments: Already during the first demo, it was love at first sight because it has what a vacation rentals REALLY need: it's "easy to understand" for those who want to make a booking.

According with my long experience with other similar booking engine systems and after 4 months of use, I can confirm that Magarental is an impressive software for holiday rentals.

But the best part of this company is the professional and proactive attitude of the staff.

Their support and expertise are priceless. When you start a project with them, you feel that you have the right partner close to you. The exchange of ideas, every brainstorming and each proposal draft, are a pleasant experience. They understand perfectly the way you work and what goal you would achieve in your business. And this is extremely important because the booking system and the website are a 24h money making machine. Every detail is essential!

I can¿t forget to mention the patience and very good skills of Federico (designer). He has made ¿¿real what we had just in our head.

Pros: Good customization, good design, answer to my questions in near real time
Cons: Nothing special, they are continually updating the system and they are open to all our suggestions.

Comments: We are so proud about our new website, new booking engine and the collaboration with Maurizio and Magarental staff.

Our new website immediately received a lot of positive feedbacks from our users!
But what it's very important that we are happy to have finally found an amazing and professional technology partner.

The booking engine is become an irreplaceable tool in our daily routine. We can managed everything with just few clicks. And we love how this software manages the enquiries.

The result of our collaboration is visible here: www.shortlet-london.com.

Pros: Easy to use, great customisation, good customer service, good training.
Cons: The system has not the feature to duplicate the set up of an already listed apartment. It could help when you have a lot of similar flats as in our case.

Comments: Just moved from one of the big boys to Magarental a smaller company who offer vacation rental software.

I needed to connect to all the main vacation portals and Magarental has this covered.

The software has a lot of features that my old software did not have, they even have a guest area where the guest can login and see the booking, book activities, hire a car, tips on places to visit, places to eat. They can even ask for assistance in the property and look up medical service.

The other factors to move where the cost and customer service, as they are a smaller company they are always on hand to help and the cost for the software is half of what I was paying.

Finally a serious vacation rental software!

Comments: After a long search and many delusions in the field of vacation rental software, my Company has finally met Maurizio and his Magarental. In 6 years we have tried many different software, but I have to say that Magarental is the only one that completely match with my Company¿s needs. With so many different settings and its friendly usability, Magarental became shortly an essential tool to work with. One of the best things about Magarental is the fact that you can ask the staff to customize certain settings depending on your needs and on your way to work. I have to say that ever since we use Magarental and its powerful channel manager, our revenues have increased and the booking department work much easily. Thanks also to Giulia and the staff of the Magarental¿s customer service for their prompt response to all the needs and questions.

Comments: We have been using the Magarental software for almost one year to manage our rental service in Venice and it has demonstrated a powerful tool insuring the grow of our business.
We needed a software developed merely for the rental business that can be adapted to the daily work to accommodate the requests of demanding clients and the peculiarity of a very special town like Venice. We selected Magarental because it is a "plug play" solution with the additional advantage that it can be customized. Even if the process required for the customization is not that lean and requires some time and attention.
The only concern is the lack of CRM and customer loyalty tools, but they are working on it.

Magarental is the best overall on-line management site for Holiday Rental businesses.

Comments: I manage around 500 properties and I was fascinated by kigo... than in London I met Maurizio Lecce (Project Manager) and it was something like a miracle...
Magarental is the property management software i dreamed... Instantly update prices and availability on all the channel manager linked to the software and, when there's no connection, it gives you the chance to link at least the availabilities with google calendar (like with airbnb).
You pay for each property you listed and no for each booking you receive (as kigo).
It's fantastic how manage the email, the bookings, the complex with units apartment, and channels.
It's quite hard to learn how use it because you can manage thousands of information but once you start working... everything will be ok and easy.
Cons? it's only a bit slow when update prices, but it's justified by the amount of informations sent to the channels Instantly (and maybe for my line not really fastly)
Anyway the best pros is the everything is customizable, and they do also the front-end website as you want in 6 months, you can see my website @ www.bellavitavillas.com
Another great thing is that between us we can share the properties listed on Magarental and have our portfolio very rich, if you have interested to cooperate with our organization please write me: a.barbaraATperledipuglia.it
If u have more question I'm available also to answer to you.

Comments: I'm using this booking platform since 2011 with great satisfaction for over 5 years.
Magarental's staff is always ready to develop and customize every need technology that is used for my business model.
Maurizio (Magarental's Ceo) has always demonstrated great qualities to understand the real needs and requirements of our company often anticipating and implementing technologies that have led us to establish ourselves in the market for holiday homes on the Italian territory.
That personally I can say is that Magarental has the qualities to make a project slow and loser in a successful project.
