RezFocus – Booking Engine Integration
Who wants more bookings? ICND offers an Award-Winning Website Platform that is focused on one thing… conversions.

By concentrating on user-experience, features and functionality, and offering a better way to search, book, and harvest leads. If your website is not performing as well as it should, let us help you perfect it.
At InterCoastal Net Designs (ICND), we have developed a vacation rental booking interface that harnesses the power of your existing Property Management Software (PMS) with all the features and functionality to drive conversions.
We can customize your interface to fit the unique needs of your vacation rental management company by tailoring your search to your market and target audience. ICND works with a verity of Property Management Systems, from Homeaway products such as Property Plus, Escapia and V12, to Barefoot Technologies, Streamline, RNS, VRM, and RMS, we have the experience under our belt to work with your Property Management System.
Our best in class booking engine interface allows you to seamlessly integrate your properties into your own website. Sometimes, when using a Property Management Software (PMS), the provided web interface is framed around the information using an iframe, or maybe a subdomain. So, when your web users click through to browse or book a property, they are actually clicking and browsing on a different version of your website and your primary URL doesn’t get any SEO credit.
Why does this matter? Because bringing the content on to your website allows each property to become content that the Search Engines (such as Google, Bing and Yahoo) can easily crawl and index. Content is king when it comes to optimizing your website, particularly in the highly competitive vacation rental industry and competing for placement against OTAs. For the Search Engines to define your website (and thus your business) as an “authority” in your market, you have to have content–and lots of it. By using the ICND vacation rental booking interface, you can do this easily without having to spend multiple hours every month creating unique content for the Search Engines to find and index. Every property wil have it’s own unique page and we can help you create custom search links for long tail keywords.
