Vacation Rental Software Development
This client needed to hire a programmer to fix errors in their custom vacation rental property management software. I provided ongoing web development support for about a year before it was decided that a website redesign was the right approach to take.
We started over from scratch with a custom webs design, new database design and development and web programming. Next, a redesign SEO plan to address issues in their outdated website to improve driving traffic to their new site was developed.
Bookerville API was integrated to manage property information to push property data to aggregators like HomeAway, VRBO, AirBnB… and then sync data on their website. Password protected admin tools were coded to be able to manage additional data not stored at Bookerville. A custom search engine was coded to be able to search for property by regions, check in data and many other amenities. We used a combination of Bookerville widgets to display data along with custom programming.
Custom WordPress Development
Integrating a WordPress blog into their custom website was included in the redesign project. Custom WordPress theme development included matching the theme on the blog with the main site. Integrating recent posts on the non WordPress pages was also custom coded.
WordPress Maintenance Service
WordPress hosting and maintenance are also provided ongoing. I take care of ongoing code updates and security reviews, along with providing WordPress hosting and any support issues. As a small business owner without in house website support, this takes the stress of website management off their plate.
