Set your guide colors, fonts, background images, and customize every nook and cranny of your guide. With our Account Branding feature, you can share branding settings across all of your guidebooks or modify them individually. Should you need to change anything with your brand, make the change in one place and push it to all guides.

Privacy Control Everything

You have all the control when it comes to privacy. Each topic you create can be set to public or private. Public topics can be viewed by anyone, private topics can only be viewed using an invite link or share link. When generating invite links, you can set a date range where the link is valid.

digital guide with map recommendations
Guest Recommendations With Maps

Pin all your favorite restaurants, attractions, bars, or whatever is important to you on a Google Map. Your guests can use the interactive map to see your pins. Add notes to each pin to make it personalized. Notes could include your favorite dish at the restaurant or what to bring to the attraction.

Collect Guest Feedback/Reviews

Our built-in feedback/reviews collection form allows you to gather feedback from your guests from within your guidebook. This feedback is often left by guests during their stay. This feedback can help find dissatisfied guests prior to them leaving reviews publicly. It also gives a forum for guests to provide constructive criticism without making it public.

digital guide responsive
Works On Every Device

Optimized for mobile but works seamless and lightning fast on every device including laptops & tablets. The guide was designed to look and feel like a mobile app with quick transitions between content and a layout that everybody is used to.

send invites to digital guide
Invites By Text or Email

Create invites to generate individual links to your guide. The invite links grant access to private topics and can be set to work a specific number of days before arrival and/or after departure. Invite notifications can be sent out via text or email and can even be scheduled into the future.

multiple guides in one account
Multiple Guides, One Account

Anyone with more than one guide will appreciate this. Topics, maps and branding can be synced between multiple guides making updates a breeze. Have multiple vacation rentals in the same location? Use the same map for all. Have some topics that are the same between guides? Update it in one place and our system pushes the changes to all applicable guide(s).

Print the QR code for the topic on operating the coffee maker and place it on the physical coffee maker. Guests are taken directly to the topic when scanning it.

analytics for digital guide
Analytics & Tracking

We provide important analytics and tracking so you can see how your guide is performing. See individual statistics for each invite you create including whether the guide was viewed and how many times. High-level analytics is also provided showing total guide views and guide views per day over the trailing 30 days.

share access to account
Multi-User Access

Grant sub-user access on a per-guide basis. Great for property managers who want to hold all the guides in their account but grant access for homeowners or hosts to help manage them. When you add a sub-user, they only have the ability to edit the guides you assign to them.

Let's hear some reviews from our clients.

Great, great, great! We love it and thinking back to when we used to have a printed welcome guide, I'm not sure how I could ever go back. Managing a small boutique hotel, every time we made a change I'd have to print off 15 copies and go into each room and put each new page of the guide in a plastic sleeve. It would take my entire morning. I no longer fear guide changes!

Boutique Hotel Owner

Our vacation rental is our retirement plan but it was become time-consuming to manage. As retirees, we're not "techy" but in an effort to streamline our business we gave this product a try. It was simple for us to put together a guide for our vacation rental and our guests love it. Thanks for making us old people feel modern.
