VANCOUVER, BC – Operto Guest Technologies has announced a partnership with award-winning vacation and short-term rental software provider, Hostfully. The relationship brings Operto’s Smart Stay automation solution to property managers internationally and further cements Operto’s position as the leading operating system in the industry.
Operto provides property managers with a software platform to manage access, temperature control and monitoring that streamlines operations and improves the host/guest relationship. Its collection of curated hardware and custom built software makes internet of things (IoT) technology meaningful for property managers looking to scale their business.
Hostfully is a complete, end-to-end property management platform which helps to increase bookings and boost revenue for vacation rental property managers. Its affordable, easy-to-use solution streamlines workflow and simplifies operational processes in the industry.
Hostfully’s digital guidebooks also help property managers modernize communications by providing guests with professional and branded information that can be viewed prior to check-in and updated remotely.
Michael Driedger, co-founder and CEO of Operto said, “Hostfully is an innovative company and we are excited to team up with them. Together we look forward to offering professional property managers increased efficiency allowing them to do what they do best, which is to deliver on guest experience. We have exciting things planned with their integrated guidebooks as well.”
Hostfully co-founder and CEO, Margot Schmorak said; “Operto’s expertise in IoT and device management will bring tremendous value to Hostfully Property Management Platform users. Vacation rental managers have so much important work to do each day. Working with Operto on device management will help managers spend less time on repetitive tasks and more on other important aspects of their high-touch business. We couldn’t be happier with our partnership with Operto – it’s a great way to bring the most innovative solutions to the vacation rental industry.”
Operto solves operational issues commonly faced by professional property managers – whether they be of short-term rentals, hotels or hostels. Operto’s flagship Smart Stay solution fully automates guest entry by programming unique entry codes for every reservation onto keypad locks. According to Booking, 63% of guests want a keyless solution for entry into a property. With no action required by the manager, guests get the convenience of fully secure 24/7 self check-in – no app required.
Operto’s range of Smart Stay solutions also includes monitoring of noise, occupancy, and air quality. Energy savings are realized through intelligent thermostat control. Smart alerts and scheduling reduce turnover time and repetitive tasks for property managers which in turn reduce costs.
Operto is currently working with hotels, vacation rentals, serviced apartments as well as more niche accommodation alternatives across North America, Europe, Asia, and the Caribbean.
