Pros: I have been really impressed by the functionality of the Orbirental Property Management Software. I started a full-service vacation rental business in Coachella Valley, CA approximately 1 year ago, and we have been growing quickly with large 5+ bedroom properties will hotel style amenities all in the Indio/La Quinta area. Orbirental has full integrations with the booking platforms, including Airbnb, Homeaway/VRBO, TripAdvisor and Booking.com, which has allowed us to expand our reach to the worldwide traveller market. Orbirental also provides great integrations with the newest and greatest technology partners so we can utilize the benefits of dynamic pricing, guest books, channel managers, keyless locks, email marketing software, along with many more tech companies that are emerging every day in this dynamic and fluid industry.

Orbirental has an innovate and easy to use interface for managers, staff and guest inquiries. The lead management pipeline is what Orbirental has mastered at the core of its PMS, but there are so many useful integrations that make Orbirental a truly one-stop shop for any size management company that wants to stay at the leading trend of technology and run their business efficiently and effectively.

I highly recommend Orbirental for the modern vacation rental property management company!

Cons: Orbirental does not provide a website builder but can help vacation rental management companies build a customer and highly optimized website instead, using their API for data synchronization and payment processing.

Comments: I have been in the rental business for over 10 years now and have used other property management software in the past which they lead me nowhere, poor customer service, lack of features, among other things.

Since I been using orbirental, my business has moved to a different direction, it is a software specially for property managers with the features I need and now I see leads coming in with little or no effort at all, customer service is top notch, quick response and available every time is need it. Channels are flawless just create your listings in orbirental and they are sent to those channels.

I am pleased with the results and looking forward to seeing my business grow alongside with orbirental.

Pros: Simple, Property details can be updated easily and syncing data is faster

Overall: I was introduced to Orbirental by our Director who runs a vacation rental business. We had some tough time before, managing multiple lists and schedules - keeping track of the overall business. I got on with the software very quickly for its simplicity and had all data under my fingertips instantly. More importantly, we could invite other agents, sync calendars and prices from some of the top rental sites such as Airbnb and Homeaway. Even had frequent upgrades and other software tools which has made our lives convenient.

My Director later on was so impressed we had rebuilt our website through them. Customer interaction is excellent through instant messages or email.

Highly recommended!!

Pros: Great calendar/booking widget. Enables payment processing. Easy to use quote tool. Outstanding customer support. Extensive feature set. Basic features up and running instantly. Modern/clean design.

Cons: Bit of a learning curve as one would expect from a product that is unique, powerful and customizable. Takes some effort/configuration to get the most out of it. Somewhat hard to use "on the go" as the admin interface works best on desktop browsers. A companion app for mobile would be awesome.

Overall: Orbirental does much more than I really need it to, but I find myself using more and more of it as time goes on.

Originally discovered this as literally the only nice-looking solution for putting one's vacation rental calendar and a "book now" widget on a dedicated website, but then found it does so much more... Very helpful in terms of managing/consolidating leads from the many different listing platforms into one central location. The ability to easily send quotes to inquiring guests is fantastic. And, if you don't have a way to securely and directly take payments, well it gives you that, too (with support for many different payment processing and payment methods).

It basically gives you all of the essential components you need to run a vacation rental business (and that you would have a very hard time hacking together yourself!). Essential for me was its ability to support dynamic pricing (currently from integration with PriceLabs) , but there should be more integrations as time goes on.

My use case might be a little unusual as I own and manage just a single property. (I have no doubt that it easily scales to support even rather large property management firms and it was obviously designed from the ground up to support multiple users/agents and multiple properties.) For me, I was trying to build my own dedicated website for my vacation rental with similar features, functionality and user experience as delivered by Airbnb, VRBO, etc. and, lo and behold, using Orbirental gave me all of the pieces that I could not have easily and cost-effectively built myself.

It can take a little time to understand the workflows and the Orbirental way of doing things (hence, 4 stars for ease-of-use), but it's mighty powerful... And I find myself, over time, moving toward making it more central to the way I manage and respond to guest inquiries (which I probably should have done in the first place).

OUTSTANDING customer support with quick response time, a "there are no stupid questions" attitude, and very responsive to requests for enhancement. Very reliable: The only "issues" I've seen with the product have been due to the general complexities of integration with the broad variety of external data feeds they have to deal with (e.g., something goes haywire at Airbnb or HomeAway and that ends up affecting Orbirental). Basically, it "does everything it says on the tin" and more.

Highly recommended and essential!

Recommendations to other buyers: See the calendar and booking widget serving up live information on availability.

Pros: Easy to onboard, efficient to use, automated and extremely powerful for a full service property manager!

Cons: nothing!

Overall: Orbirental has a very automated setup and on boarding process and the team of technicians are there to make sure that everything goes smoothly. The software allows users to easily turn on and off integrations with 3rd party softwares that are extremely useful tools for running a full service property management business with streamlined operations, marketing, guest services, automation and reporting. This software is designed at its core to streamline the inquiry and booking process in an easy to use Dashboard. From being able to send custom quotes to potential guests, to syncing with dynamic pricing engines, to the plug and play calendar and booking widgets, Orbirental is a software that is very streamlined in its design and user interface, but don't let the simplicity of the UI fool you......this software is extremely dynamic and provides an integrated all-in-one solution for the modern property manager!

Recommendations to other buyers: Keep up the high level of personal attention for clients, and it may be really useful to have a 24/7 customer service phone number for managers to call. However, the chat feature is a useful tool for now.

Comments: Very slick interface and many great features but can be a little daunting to use first especially if you need to use more complex features such as credit card charging (this perhaps could be a little more user friendly) for instance.
However Stephan from the head of the company is always very quick to respond and just super helpful with even with things that would be more of a responsibility of a third party to help you with. This level of support just in itself makes Orbirental a very adequate choice for PMS if you want to make sure everything is in order with your short term rental business online.

Pros: Product is team centric. In sync with our vacation rental agency workflow. Great response from the customer servicer team.

Overall: Our vacation rental software was becoming obsolete, and we were experiencing growing pains as our apartment portfolio was expending. We looked at several VR management softwares already on the market, but none were really adapted to our agency. By going with one of those platforms, we would have lost time trying to making it work instead of acquiring a tool to make us more efficient. Being part of the developing effort behind Orbirental was truly beneficial to Paris For Rent. Efficiency has improved, and our response time to inquiries is shorter. Through multi-channeling we receive more inquiries and reply to them faster. Automation of menial tasks has allowed us to free up time for our sales agents, and they can use this time to find new prospects and partner agencies. We look forward to implementing Orbirental's new features for yield management in the coming weeks. Also, great customer support .

Comments: My company handles property management rentals differently than most, Hawaii regulations require a 30-day minimum and as such, we needed to work with Orbirental to be compliant. The team at Orbirental was quick to understand our situation and took the time to learn about your needs and find solutions.

It has been great working with them to implement better systems that can accommodate a wider range of properties, allowing us to take advantage of the tools Orbirental offers while maintaining state compliance.

I'm excited to see how this management system evolves as they learn from property managers big and small.

Comments: I've had the pleasure of meeting Stephen of Orbirental in person, and getting a private demo of what the software can do. I must say - it's a winner. I've literally looked at dozens of possible solutions, and all of them seemed either overblown, horribly old-school or just plain clumsy to use (or a combination of those three...). Orbirental is none of that: In spite of being a very young company, the solution is beautiful. Visually appealing, very easy to navigate, and it actually makes the workflow easier instead of even more complicated. And while its functionality may not quite yet be at the level of some of the bigger ones, it's still a winner for me: The pace and efficiency with which they manage to implement suggestions and new solutions blows me away. Seriously, after dealing with old, huge, outdated solutions, this is a fresh breeze!

Comments: After searching for more than 5 years for a VR Booking management system that works the way all property managers dream of, I've finally found the solution with Orbirental. The system automates the booking process in the most sensible, easy and productive way I've ever seen. And the visual tools Orbirental uses to present all stages of the booking process and how your properties are performing makes it not only super easy to use and understand, but it also informs your decision making, allowing you to tweak your operation and increase profits.

When I get a new inquiry, I can see where it's coming from, I can assign it to one of our reps and follow it all the way through to booking. The calendar allows me to instantly see the availability for all properties at once, instead of having to click through multiple calendars to find the info you want. And I really appreciate the way the dashboard is designed, you always know what's going on at a glace, and the built in reports allows you to learn so much about your operation, and you can use what you've learned to adjust your strategy as appropriate so your properties perform even better.

Their support is second to none and they continue to add new features while keeping things simple.

If you're a property manager with more than 1 or 2 properties under your belt, I'd highly recommend you give Orbirental a try. You'll be glad you did.
