What is a Property Management System (PMS)?
A Property Management System (PMS) serves as a vital software tool for property managers, empowering them to efficiently oversee and manage rental properties. This versatile system is designed to streamline various tasks, providing comprehensive support across multiple aspects of property management.
Here's a glimpse into its functionalities:
Reservations Management: Efficiently track and manage reservations, ensuring seamless booking experiences for guests.
Guest Check-Ins and Check-Outs: Simplify the guest arrival and departure process, enhancing guest satisfaction and operational efficiency.
Housekeeping Management: Coordinate housekeeping schedules and tasks to maintain pristine accommodations for incoming guests.
Maintenance Tracking: Facilitate timely maintenance activities, ensuring that properties remain in top condition.
Billing and Invoicing: Automate billing processes and generate accurate invoices, streamlining financial transactions.
And much more! By leveraging a robust Property Management System like NextPax integrated with Florida Rental By Owners (FLARBO), property managers can optimize their operations, deliver exceptional guest experiences, and maximize revenue potential.
How does a Channel Manager work with a Property Management System?
Integrating a Channel Manager with a Property Management System (PMS) offers a powerful solution to streamline reservation and availability management for rental properties. This integration enhances efficiency and accuracy by centralizing key functionalities.
Here's how it works:
Centralized Reservation Management: By integrating a PMS with a Channel Manager, the PMS becomes the central hub for managing reservations and availability. This centralized approach simplifies the process for property managers, allowing them to oversee bookings seamlessly.
Data Synchronization: The PMS communicates availability and rate information to the Channel Manager. Subsequently, the Channel Manager updates this data across all connected Online Travel Agencies (OTAs) and other distribution channels. This ensures consistency and avoids overbooking issues.
Real-Time Updates: With real-time synchronization between the PMS and the Channel Manager, property managers can trust that availability and rates are always up-to-date across all platforms. This helps maximize occupancy and revenue potential.

How Can I Set Up a NextPax Integration with Florida Rental By Owners?
To start the integration process:
1. Be sure you already have your FLARBO property subscription(s) paid for and ready to start the connection process. You can start by creating a FLARBO host account and list your property here. If you have multiple properties you may be eligible for a discount. Contact our customer service team here to find out more.
2. If you don't have a NextPax account already contact us for an introduction to the NextPax team. From there you will need to do the following with NextPax Channel Distributor.
- Sign a NextPax Agreement
- Enable NextPax as channel Manager in the host's PMS
- Once the properties are fed to NextPax, they will do a data review to make sure all taxes and fees are correct
- NextPax will then enable the properties to send to FLARBO for distribution.
* Note: Any time a host adds a new property for Florida Rentals by Owners, they will need to email the NextPax support team to enable. If they do not, the property will not be sent to FLARBO for publication.
3. Once the properties are fed to FLARBO our team will need to know which properties are associated with the different subscription levels you have purchased (if they are different levels).
4. Once our team connects the properties in FLARBO they will notify the host.
5. Be sure to review the front end of the website property listngs to be sure they appear correctly.
6. Any future changes to the property must be managed within your property management software. Do not edit listings on the FLARBO Host Dashboard as they will not be saved with the daily synch to NextPax.
How do I Delist a Property?
Rentals are often sold and taken off the market, we understand this. If you would like to delist your properties from this channel, please contact customer service. Include your NextPax ID and FLARBO ID to request the properties to be delisted.
