Your guide to integration
Interested in using WebRezPro property management system at your hotel?
WebRezPro is an all-in-one property management system that is built for properties of all sizes and is PCI and EMV compliant.
This page will tell you everything you need to know about WebRezPro and also why it’s so important to integrate with a powerful channel manager. Integration is a vital part of bringing the control of your property into one central hub. By converging the core processes and daily operations you can dramatically decrease admin errors and duplicate data, and save a huge amount of time every day.
Your PMS will do a lot of this but other systems such as channel managers are also essential to run your property smoothly. A channel manager will ensure your inventory is selling and updating in real-time on all your connected online travel agents and your website.
A reliable leading provider like SiteMinder could be the perfect integration for WebRezPro.
WebRezPro is a comprehensive all-in-one property management system. This means it includes pretty much everything you would need to run your property, with each feature working seamlessly with the others.
The WebRezPro cloud-based PMS was released in 2003 so now has more than 15 years of industry history and refinement, allowing hotels to improve efficiency, generate revenue, and master guest experience.
Operating out of Calgary, Canada, WebRezPro is designed specifically for the hotel and hospitality industry and can help a range of properties including hotels, inns, lodges, cabins, campgrounds, hostels and vacation rentals.
WebRezPro consists of many front desk features, booking engines, housekeeping, rate management and accounting, and performance reports.
Approximately 1400 properties in 40 countries already use WebRezPro.
WebRezPro can provide coverage across basically the entire guest journey, from booking to check-in, check-out and post-stay.
The front desk software alone has 21 features for hotels to utilise. Some of these include:
Choosing a cloud-based system like WebRezPro will allow your hotel to benefit from a large degree of accessibility and flexibility. It will save you time and eliminate technical frustration.
Here are some other reasons why you might choose WebRezPro:
WebRezPro will take a guest reservation from check-in to check-out via the following process:
A booking engine is essential if you want to accept direct bookings and is vital to the success of your business.
WebRezPro promises its booking engine function is easy to use, powerful, and doesn’t charge commission fees.
There are two options to choose from; parallel and carousel. The parallel booking engine is fast-loading and can be customised with images and background colors. The carousel booking engine displays large room photos and features a unique rate carousel tool, allowing guests to fine tune their stay.
With an online booking engine, which SiteMinder also offers, you can:
For guests, they’ll be able to see real-time availability, purchase optional extras and products, see photos and slideshows, view rooms in multiple currencies and languages, receive instant reservation confirmations, and book anytime from anywhere.

Pros for the software include:
Cons for the software include:
Some tangible feedback includes reviewers saying “I could not imagine doing our business without WebRezPro” while another states “We have had WebRezPro implemented for 3+ years. It is so far superior to our prior property management systems.’
On the flipside, one reviewer says “Mobile interface for the OWNER is awful! I only use it on my laptop.”
Given the consistently high praise across three review sites, we can position WebRezPro as one of the better PMS options on the market.
WebRezPro states its service is available for just $5/month/room (with a minimum $60/month charge) — with barely any upfront costs.
This monthly fee pays for:
Additional fees apply for access to special modules and interfaces such as GDS/OTAs/POS etc.
Customer support for WebRezPro is based throughout Canada, where the company’s headquarters are situated.
Business hours for phone support are listed as being from 8am to 4:30pm Mountain Standard Time (MST), Monday to Friday.

The systems you use at your property simply must integrate and work seamlessly together for your business to be successful.
It’s especially important for using WebRezPro with a channel manager.
A channel manager is a tool that will allow you to sell all your rooms on all your connected booking sites at the same time. It will automatically update your availability in real-time on all sites when a booking is made, when you close a room to sale, or when you want to make bulk changes to your inventory.
It’s an invaluable piece of technology that is guaranteed to save you plenty of time and keep your stress levels healthy. You should be able to sell more rooms, optimise revenue generation, and experience significantly less double-bookings with a good channel manager provider.
Integrating WebRezPro with a channel manager allows inventory, rates and reservations to be controlled directly from within the PMS. Through the interface, the PMS automatically pushes designated inventory, rates and availability to the connected channels, and reservations made through the channel are automatically sent to the PMS, with availability adjusted accordingly.
WebRezPro is a market leading PMS solution and SiteMinder possesses the world’s most powerful channel manager, so it makes a lot of sense to pair the products together. This will ensure your business has the best chance of success.
In fact, reviews on Capterra talk about this integration with one user stating:
“Our integration between WebRezPro and Siteminder was a big step for us as a small business. The real-time two-way interface between the two software programs allows us to seamlessly manage rates and inventory with all our OTAs without having to actually manage each OTA in their respective extranet.”
Data which can be shared between SiteMinder and WebRezPro includes:
Using SiteMinder’s channel manager will build a link between WebRezPro and your hotel’s chosen booking channels. Two-way integration cuts down the cost of acquiring reservations substantially; for every reservation that is automatically populated, the hotel can then use that time to manage their guests effectively and spend more time on the overall guest experience.
There are many other advantages of two-way integration, such as retaining revenue that would otherwise have been lost due to delayed cancellations, and increasing revenue by maximising online exposure with automated inventory and rate updates.
Using WebRezPro will give you powerful control over your property management thanks to its all-in-one nature. Daily operations will be a breeze and keeping track of all your data will be simple.
However, one important element will still be missing; a channel manager. To stay competitive in today’s market a channel manager should nearly be your first investment. A channel manager will allow you to reach and sell to travellers much more effectively but you shouldn’t manage this process manually.
Your PMS and channel manager need to be in sync, communicating via two-way integration to ensure data is accurate and up-to-date. This enables you to control your inventory in a much more sustainable and profitable way.
If you decide WebRezPro is the right PMS for you, SiteMinder can be the perfect channel manager partner. Just like WebRezPro, SiteMinder is known for its advanced features and ease of use for customers. The two systems are already used in combination by many hotels around the world to optimise daily operations and increase property revenue, so it’s a proven partnership that will put your hotel ahead of the competition. One example can be seen here on Capterra; “Our integration between WebRezPro and SiteMinder was a big step for us as a small business. The real-time two-way interface between the two programs allows us to seamlessly manage rates and inventory.”
