B&B owners getting a poor deal, 18/6/09

Existing B&B reservation tools aren’t fulfilling their promise to help owners run their business better because they’re too expensive, difficult to set up, and neglect the way it actually feels to use them, according to Cheltenham-based software providers GuestList. Read the full press release.

Three reasons we're interesting

1. We're here for the smaller operators

We developed GuestList to provide smaller holiday businesses with the tool to manage their guests and business just as well as their larger competitors. B&B, small hotel and holiday cottage owners can be overlooked and under-represented by suppliers, organisations and the government compared to other areas of the tourist industry. Our customers and their stories are often the most interesting, and they have a uniquely personal passion and stake in their business.

2. Software makes life easier

Hosted web applications represent a new wave of business software, giving users a tool that is universal, constantly improving and never goes out of date. Our development is also as open as possible - we're always asking for feedback and letting customers decide what happens next. We believe GuestList can have a significant impact on smaller operators who are more personally involved in their business. Have a look at our product blog.

3. Tourism information

As we look after more customers, we're collecting combined (anonymous) information about individual properties and bookings. We're hoping to provide useful information about tourism patterns to both our customers and the media.
