A Success Story
Lake Vermilion Resort Association was unhappy with their search solution.
For years, the association used a search solution on their site that none of their members liked. They looked for a solution that met their needs, but were unable to find a suitable service. They wanted a search engine their visitors could use to search across all 40 independent resorts, lodges, houseboats, campgrounds, and hotels. Since there were so many different types of properties in the Lake Association, accommodating all their independent businesses was going to be a challenge.
Lake Vermilion Resort Association partnered with the software development firm Northern Voyageur, Inc. to create a search and booking engine from the ground up. This took several years of collaborative effort by the many resorts and the developers at Northern Voyageur, Inc., eventually, they produced a product now known as CabinKey™ .
Today, the vacation rental properties on beautiful Lake Vermilion enjoy a unified search solution that is powerful enough for any property.
Resort owners on Lake Vermilion have had the opportunity to try several reservation systems. While all these systems work, none have worked as well as CabinKey Reservation System. The reason why CabinKey has accelerated above and beyond any other reservation structure, is because it was developed specifically for resorts. The other reservation platforms are modified from the hotel reservation archetypal platform to function in a resort model. While these reservation systems work, there are many limitations. Most resorts have minimum stays, hotels typically are for one-night layovers. Moreover, resorts offer amenities such as boat rental, fishing guides, meal plans and so on that your typical hotel don’t. CabinKey has solved all these issues. It is user friendly! This reservation system can be modified by the resort owner and not by some software technician, as no two resorts are the same. A resort owner can add or remove amenities as they choose. CabinKey is accessible on mobile for the resort owner who is on the go. The greatest benefit CabinKey offers is online booking and payment which is linked to your financial institution. The resort owner doesn’t have to take valuable time answering the phone to book a reservation if he is busy with other projects or wants to spend valuable time with his/her family. Remember most reservations take place after hours. If you are a resort owner, Lake Vermilion Resort & Tourism Association strongly recommends CabinKey for your reservation system. You won’t be disappointed!
