iPRO – How it started.
Meet Andy Jones, Founder and ex-Booking Manager.
We developed our software to help grow our own short-term rental agency, Azure holidays. At the time, everything was done on spreadsheets and email. We knew that if we wanted to expand, we had to automate our processes. We trialled various off-the-shelf solutions but nothing seemed to fit the way we wanted to work. So we developed our own Property Management Software (PMS) which became iPRO version 1.0.
Over the next two years our portfolio grew to over 500 properties using iPRO, averaging over 200 bookings per month with a team of just four people! We knew we had something that could help other holiday rental agencies and so we released our software to the wider industry.
15 years on, iPRO manages thousands of bookings and £millions of payments each month for our clients. Of course, we continue to work on our software, continually making improvements and creating new features to help short-term rental businesses run effortlessly.
