August Marketplace Roundup: An Accounting Solution, a Guest Experience App, a Work Order Tool & More
This month’s additions to Guesty’s ever expanding Marketplace definitely won’t disappoint! With everything from a complete accounting solution to an innovative way to get insider travel tips for your guests, the integrations and partnerships we’ve built in August are guaranteed to kick things up a notch.
This Month’s Integrations
There’s a reason your guests didn’t book a hotel room and it’s probably because they wanted a lower-cost, more authentic local experience. With the Cool Cousin app at their fingertips, they won’t be disappointed. The platform connects travelers with locals who share their interests and passions so that they can get insider travel tips from people who know the city and like what they like.
Property managers can customize the app to showcase their branding, utilize it for upsell opportunities and push alerts from Cool Cousins to guests through their preferred communication channels, be it SMS, Email, Facebook Messenger or your booking sites.
How the integration works: Cool cousin will pull Guesty listings and use this information to create custom guides for your guests.
LSI Work Order Tool
A company is only as efficient as all of its moving parts, which is why short-term property managers need to have an organized and clear way of coordinating with their field staff. LSI’s Work Order Tool is just that, offering customizable and color-coded real-time status updates, the ability to filter work orders by status, date, property, vendor or urgency, seamless communication via notes that can be added to work orders and so much more. The platform is mobile-friendly and allows users to upload relevant documents or photos with ease.
How the integration works: LSI Work Order Tool will retrieve listings and calendars from Guesty, enabling users to easily assign work orders to existing listings while taking calendar availability into account.
Want to help your guests explore their travel destination pre-checkin and post-checkout? Those hours between checkout and their flight departure can be a real drag if they’re weighed down by all their luggage. With BagsAway, you can offer guests a simple solution and fully automate the process of finding local storage locations near your properties.
How the integration works: BagsAway will pull reservations from Guesty and send out an automated message to the guest offering luggage storage options.
This Month’s Community Partners
A good property manager is an informed property manager. Keep your finger on the pulse of the industry with AirDNA, a leading provider of short-term vacation rental data and analytics. Their platform tracks the daily performance of over 10 million listings in 80,000 markets globally on Airbnb, HomeAway, Vrbo, and more, helping vacation rental managers optimize their pricing, benchmark their properties, and bring in more revenue.
If you want to give your guests the smoothest possible experience, why not start with their trip to and from the airport? Help them skip the stress by shipping their luggage to your property for the same price as checking a bag. With LugLess, guests can choose to either drop their belongings off at a local FedEx or UPS location or pay for direct pickup from their homes, making their journey to your vacation rental a whole lot less stressful.
One of the least glamorous aspects of short-term property management (or any business, for that matter) is definitely the confusing accounting stuff. Ximplifi takes this burden off your shoulders, handling everything from paying bills, applying booking payments and reconciling accounts to trust accounting & owner statements. And that’s not all! Ximplifi provides you with the financial guidance you need to run your business successfully, straight to the finish line.
