Banter Software
Banter Software is a company that has developed a website management platform specifically for resorts, providing you with a great website that gives you the ability to update your site in real-time (update pictures, videos, add/update/remove cabins, text, rates, etc). Additionally, we offer a variety of features including automated text message alerts to guests, preview options so you can see any changes you make before they go live, social media integration, automated emails for management of guest inquiries, and much more. No longer will you, the resort, need to pay your web-design company every time a change is needed to your site. Instead, our admin portal gives you the ability to keep your site current while we develop new robust features for you.
