Welcome to HLS Solutions' Winter Newsletter



We are pleased to be able to provide you with our latest newsletter packed with useful information and articles from industry professionals.  We hope that you will enjoy this issue and find the articles interesting and informative.


Well it has been a bit of a strange year for the UK holiday letting industry...


We started with hosepipe bans and drought warnings, followed by the wettest summer on record.  A lot of regions have been hit by the recent flooding and now they are predicting the coldest winter for years!  Certainly not the easiest season to deal with holiday letting in the UK!


However in spite of all of this the majority of our customers have reported that they have experieced a very successful year, and I am delighted to report that many are continuing to expand and build even further.  That is great news for us, and I am confident that our software and services are helping our customers to achieve their goals.


In this newsletter we bring you further information on our software developments, our expanding web and design aspect of our business, along with a couple of features from third party companies we think you will find interesting.


Thank you for your support in 2012 and we wish everyone a very happy and successful 2013!




Printed holiday brochures - the end of an era?


Creating a physical printed brochure of all available holiday properties has always been a huge administrative task and extremely expensive.


Whilst there is always going to be a requirement for a printed brochure to sit on your customer's coffee table as a permanent advertising reminder, we also need to look at how technology may be able to help with this.


At HLS we have been keen to investigate some solutions, which we feel can bridge the gap between your website and a printed brochure.  As part of this we are delighted to be able to announce that we have linked up with a company who can convert pdf documents into digital form.  


You can now give customers to ability to view your full brochure instantly, turning pages, and viewing all your brochure content, without having to wait for days for it to arrive in the post!

The biggest development has been the integration of HLS Holiday Manager with Apache Open Office.


Apache OpenOffice is the leading open-source office software suite for word processing.  Apache OpenOffice is the result of over twenty years' software engineering and does everything you want your office software to do, the way you want it to.


With a full word processing package in the software, plus a number of other enhancements and functionality, there is even more reason to organise for your demonstration today.

New Holiday letting advertising features for Cornwall!


With such extensive press for long term property management and sales of properties, it has always been surprising there has been such little similar coverage for holiday lettings.  However, perhaps this is about to change...


The Cornwall property paper has recently completed a limited three edition run featuring the Cornish holiday letting sector, which has proved so popular they are planning a further longer term run early in 2013.


We are delighted to feature them, and hope this will prove to become a more regular feature for Cornwall and other regions.
