One of the most important features of Kigo is certainly our Channel Manager. It allows you to share and promote your properties created in Kigo with multiple Portals and Agencies around the globe, by sincronizing your calendars, property information, rates etc. The Channel Manager allows you to easily manage your incoming reservations, inquiries and cancellations directly from your Kigo Back Office. Thus, you only need to keep your Kigo Calendar up to date and this one will sincronize your availability information and rates to all the selected portals.
Important: You will need to setup an account with each portal you would like to collaborate with first in order to share your properties with them.
The section "Preferred Channels" will show you the main portals Kigo is collaborating with: Booking.com, HomeAway and Flipkey/Tripadvisor.
