We help property owners, managers and agencies run their holiday lets online, with specialist websites that are tailored to the self catering industry.
Our website platform provides an extensive range of features, that are all seamlessly connected to one another and accessible from your own website. So you can effortlessly stay in control of your site, manage bookings and market your business from a single place.
SCRUMPY makes holiday property management easy, giving you the right tools so you can get direct bookings and can be split into these three main services:
- SEO optimised - Having a great website normally means continual reinvestment to meet the latest demands set by search engines and their algorithms. We stay well ahead of this curve, by implementing the latest coding practices and techniques. Plus SCRUMPY automatically generates more than 30 intelligent tags for each page on your site, giving you the best chances of being found online.
- Research Driven - We don't just do something because it looks 'nice’. Instead, we track visitors as they browse, interact and book on our sites; making well considered decisions based upon the buying trends of your customers. We know what works, and have implemented a structure that highly increases the chances of converting site visitors, into paying guests
- Latest Technology - Our entire platform has been built from the ground up to intuitively work on all devices. This responsive nature means that our websites aren’t just mobile friendly, but actively reposition and resize themselves to best suit what they are being viewed upon. Expect quick loading speeds and full functionality, regardless if you’re using a smartphone, tablet or desktop computer.
- Bookings - Included with everything you need so guests can book directly on your own website: with an industry leading availability calendar, flexible pricing and user friendly checkout process that can offer optional cancellation insurance. Guests can also access the ‘My Booking’ portal to see pre arrival information, configure beds, purchase extras and make payments towards their booking.
- Management - Easily stay on top of your bookings with automated reminders that chase guests when details are outstanding. Our Quick Reply can intelligently compose replies to enquiries, with information based on their dates, what they’ve viewed and booking links. Whilst our Booking Offer feature allows you to send a prepopulated booking form that blocks out dates on the calendar, and expire unless the guest pays the deposit.
- Portals - Dependant on your set up, you may want other members of the team to have access to your site. If you have a cleaner or housekeeper, our dedicated ‘Housekeeping portal’ can display upcoming bookings, without revealing financial details. It allows guests to communicate directly, with the likes of room configurations and provides all of the necessary information for a smooth changeover.
- Content - As well as being in control of everything booking related, you can also make amendments to your website from the same interface. Users of any ability can easily add images and edit descriptions without the need for technical skills. In fact, our range of page creators are tailored to display a range of your content in the best possible way, so you can effortlessly produce engaging and informative content for guests.
- Reporting - A SCRUMPY website contains a lot of key information related to your business, tracking the likes of where bookings originate from and the feedback that is left post stay. You can pull reports of this nature to see in further detail what is and isn’t working, allowing you to focus on areas that may need improvement. These reports are equally just as handy when managing finances, looking at projections, expenditure or balancing the books.
- Exclusive Listing - Become part of an ever growing collective of property owners from across the UK, on the site that organically ranks no. 1 for “short breaks” and is only available to businesses with a SCRUMPY website.
- Property Sharing - Our platform allows for the seamless synchronisation from your SCRUMPY website to shortbreaks.com, where your holiday let is mirrored across and any amendments that you make are instantly reflected on your listing.
- No Commission - There are no charges for enquiries or bookings. We don’t penalise our customers, nor do your guests have to pay booking fees. We simply provide this service because we want you to succeed and encourage as many direct bookings to our clients as possible.
Websites with software - Powered by SCRUMPY
SCRUMPY’s all in one solution combines together a modern website, with booking software and provides you with the tools to get found online. Plus our complimentary listing on shortbreaks.com gives you the best possible chances of being seen.
If you want to move away from OTA’s and those who charge high commissions, we can give you what you need to go independent and get more direct bookings.
P.s If you are an agency, or are considering starting up your own property management company, then let us know - we’ve got even more tailored features that you’l love!
