Leading the way for web design in Hampshire, we know a thing or two about websites. That means we are often able to provide things that some other developers can’t.
SuperControl is a versatile booking system that has been used for years to help property letters and holiday letters offer real-time availability and bookings from all the major property portals, as well as their website.
New Forest Holiday Lets tasked us with creating a beautiful new website to advertise their collection of properties in the New Forest, using SuperControl to automatically add new properties, sync availability, and allow people to find the right property for them.
Here’s what you need to know.
SuperControl Website Developers
SuperControl provides an API integration that allows a web developer to integrate a lot of their functionality direct onto your own website.
Normally, booking systems are clunky and slow, and often take the visitor away from your own website straight away. It can make what should be an exciting process really boring for the user. By using our custom-built, super-fast website design alongside the API for SuperControl, we were able to get the best of both worlds.
How does it work?
You use SuperControl to upload your new properties and manage their pricing and availability. It’s then connected to your own website, as well as all the major booking websites (Airbnb, Booking.com etc) to allow your properties availability to be constantly synchronised and updated, meaning you don’t have to deal with double bookings or incorrect availability that your customers can view.
Benefits to SuperControl
SuperControl themselves declare the integration as a path towards more bookings and less work. Administration time is reduced and the fully-automated system allows customers quick access to your property’s availability, 24/7/365. This data then syncs to your website directly, reducing or increasing availability when the bookings are rolling in.
As we mentioned, often these systems can be hard to use and susceptible to issues. But the SuperControl booking system is user-friendly and provides a vastly improved user experience to the alternatives. That’s a win for your customers that increases the odds of them booking.
The software is also GDPR compliant and has enhanced security benefits. Your customers can book easily, safe in the knowledge their data is protected.
So what was the finished SuperControl development project?
New Forest Holiday Lets ended up with a gorgeous website build, with SuperControl functionality to boot.
It’s a user-driven website with a focus on the aesthetic of the New Forest, showcasing what makes their properties so special. With the API connected, the team has an automated system controlling their bookings. They simply focus on providing first-class customer service, as they always have done.
SuperControl for the new era in web design
SuperControl is a great tool when utilised properly. But don’t fall into the trap of slow, antiquated websites just to get access to it.
Work with us and get all the functionality alongside all the benefits of a custom-build website.
