There is a lot of “new” around Wheelhouse these days! 😍

This week witnessed the historic IPO of Airbnb — which again signaled to the world- “short term rentals are not a fad, they are the future

And today, we’re sharing our *newest* version of Wheelhouse— by introducing our most professional-grade offering yet — Wheelhouse Pro!

As we move into 2021, Wheelhouse’s mission — to be the most valued partner of ambitious hospitality entrepreneurs — remains as important, as ever.

This launch reflects major new investments in three (3) key areas, to help achieve that vision:

  • Deeper Insights — our new platform delivers more data & more transparency to our customers.
  • Broader Toolset — we have added products & partners around our revenue management to make sure you can achieve any business ambition.
  • Better Value — our goal is to help our customers earn even more revenue while offering multiple payment tiers to empower every unique customer & business.

But first… 22%+ more revenue / listing in 2020 🚀

Before we dive into your new Wheelhouse, we wanted to stress that the new Wheelhouse is only going to improve on the strength of what will continue to be our flagship offering — best-in-class revenue management.

To that end, we’re proud that in 2020, listings connected to Wheelhouse outperformed their competitors by 22.6%!

Yet, we are confident that Wheelhouse Pro will only help make our customer’s 2021 even stronger.

Ready to learn more about the tooling that we think will make that goal a reality? Let’s dive in!

Our 3 FAVE changes to Wheelhouse:

#1: Flat OR Flex Pricing 🙏

In re-launching Wheelhouse, we wanted to give every customer a choice in how to pay for Wheelhouse.

Therefore, not only are we introducing a “free forever” tier, we are introducing two new paid tiers for you to choose from:

Flat Rate: “Wheelhouse Pro” is our most powerful offering and includes everything for professional operators looking to maximize performance. We offer this for $19.99/listing/month for a single listing, with increasing discounts available for larger portfolios.

Flex Rate: “Wheelhouse Essential” is a simpler but flexible offering designed for growing portfolios. We are offering this tier for .75% of revenue, charged at the end of each month, along with a monthly fee of $2.99/listing.

We are confident that both options will provide exceptional value while empowering you to determine both (1) how & (2) when you pay for the most powerful pricing & data platform available.

#2: Automated Pricing for 18 Months 💥

Now, Wheelhouse Pro can price your nights perfectly — 18 months into the future.

Thanks to continued advancements in both our data & modeling (learn more here), we can now help ensure that your listings can capture great rates for next year’s most in-demand nights.

As of today, you can edit, customize & automate up to 18 months of nightly prices — check it out on your calendar pages!

To activate “Pro”, please sign up from your dashboard or subscriptions page, today!

#3: Booking Scores are Live! 💯

Booking Scores is a new feature, designed to help you & your team capture the best bookings.

Booking Scores calculate the expected value of each booking, through a combination of (a) nightly price, (b) length of stay, (c) lead time, and more — all in the context of similar bookings in your market.

As an operator, booking scores are a way to more deeply understand each listing’s performance.

And, for property managers, booking scores can help communicate the value of the service you provide to your owners/partners.

While brand-spanking new, we’re quite excited to see this feature continue to evolve in 2021… (with your feedback, ofcourse!)

2 more surprises! 🎉

Surprise #1: Market Reports & Insights 🌎

As you might have noticed, Wheelhouse started sharing our newest offering, Market Reports two weeks ago.

Wheelhouse’s market reports can help you evaluate every aspect of your market.

They can help you understand what’s happening today, while also giving you deep insights into your ever-evolving market’s past & future performance.

In recognition that 2020 has been a challenging year, our team made the decision to initially provide all market reports to you & our other amazing customers, free of charge through January 2021.

While eventually, we will have to charge for aspects of this offering, we believe it’s important that everyone can leverage this data to ensure their calendars are set up for success in 2021.

Yes. You read that right! Market reports are currently free. Check out your market here, or, view them from your dashboard.

Surprise #2: Advanced APIs are Live! 💻

Yep! We have new APIs live, as well.

As of today, you & your team can access Wheelhouse’s pricing insights in an entirely new fashion, to either leverage our platform, our build out your own services.

In the last 7 weeks, we’ve helped onboard 7 teams to these APIs, and we’re now ready to invite you & your team to make Wheelhouse a foundation of your business’s success as well!

What’s next for you on Wheelhouse?

#1: Comp Sets 🏇 🏇 🏇

Darn right!

Wheelhouse is weeks away from handing over the keys to the most comprehensive CompSet in the industry (read more about the foundation of our CompSets)

In fact — message us, and we’d be happy to add you to our “Comp Set early access” list.

While the proof will have to wait a few weeks, we’re willing to bet that the robustness of this Comp Set will give you unprecedented insights into how properties near you are finding success, and how you can leverage their learnings to drive your own success, as well.

#2: “Available Everywhere!” 📡

In the last year, customers have inquired about potential connections to 110+ unique channels & software partners.

And… good news! Over the next few months, we’ll be working with partners to ensure Wheelhouse can be available to as many customers as possible.

We’ll keep you posted on our progress, but get ready for Wheelhouse to interact with all your favorite channels & services!

We can’t wait 😄

More than just software

Despite being proud of our software & data we design & develop, the most important metric at Wheelhouse continues to be our 99% Customer Satisfaction score 😍

And, while we’d admit it’s a bit intimidating to imagine improving on that score, rest assured that in 2021 our team will amplify the ways that our support team helps you & your business thrive.

It’s our highest honor to be a partner in your business’s success, and we look forward to continuing to serve you & your team in the year & years ahead.

Now… ready to see your new Wheelhouse?

Onwards 🙌

Team Wheelhouse!
