The first post-pandemic year in which the accommodation industry was unaffected by the COVID-19 outbreak is behind us, but it was not an easy time - new problems were on the horizon: the war in Ukraine, rising prices for products and services and the energy crisis.

2022-07-21

The day-to-day work with the calendar is related to the ongoing addition of bookings, blockades or offers. Blockades also underpin some of the integrations within Channel Manager.
