BPO is Property Management System which can be connected to Myallocator. For more information on which features set in BPO can be sent to Myallocator please check PMS Features article
Backpack Online is the first comprehensive, browser based property management system (PMS) developed specifically for the hostel, budget hotel, guesthouse and B&B sector. It provides the core functionality required for managing all types of reservations, check ins/outs and taking booking payments. It also significantly aids property owners with the administrative, back-office effort involved in managing their properties, including inventory management, scheduling and financial accounting.
backpack online is a user-friendly interface, multilingual, with daily back up of data on our dedicated servers and mobile or PDA access to up-to-date, real-time data on the road. It is seamlessly integrated with Hostelworld.com, the market leading consumer site for the budget accommodation.
Things To Note
- Hostelworld/Hostelbookers are connected to BPO directly. There is no need to set up this channel in MyAllocator if you're using BPO as your property management system
- BPO doesn't support myallocator sending bookings to them. They instead "pull" bookings from myallocator. Therefore any issues related to bookings present in myallocator but missing in BPO should be investigated by BPO team
