Remote cleaning services
As we were saying in the past article about outsourcing cleanings, it’s the best decision ever!
There are so many reasons why outsourcing the cleaning of your tourist apartments is a good idea as we discussed.
And that is why we introduce you to Doinn, our preferred partner.
Doinn was born in 2015 and is a platform where you can buy, monitor, and schedule cleaning and linen rental items.

You can do it from anywhere in the world.
They are currently in more than 600 cities. In Spain, Portugal, UK, France, United States, Canada, and recently Greece.
The best thing is that it is a “plug and play” type of technology.
You create an account on their platform and link your properties with your Avantio profile, then automatically have all the information about your bookings in their system.
Saving you tons of hours and effort by having this process automated.
Once the Avantio and Doinn accounts are synced, the rest is a piece of cake.

Save time with aCheckin
Giving guests the ability to go through the entire check-in process virtually is definitely an advantage.
Especially since in most cases, guests are already used to doing this process digitally.
And continuing with our remote management topic this is a key point.
Recently at avantio we launched aCheck-in.
A feature that will allow you to carry out this process digitally without using an external app.
How does it work?
- After a booking is completed, the guest has access to a site scan their data and perform an ID verification.
- This will generate a doc file with the guest data and requires a digital signature.
- Finally, all the documentation is reviewed and approved by the owner or manager of the property.
An easy process that can be carried out remotely without any problem.
Remote management of check-in
If you are not close to your property and you do not want to incur extra costs, it would be best to have a keyless or self check in protocol for arrivals.
Self check-in means guests can access a place without needing the host to be there.
Guests will be able to access conveniently through: a safe for keys, a smart lock, among others.
And there are so many options from electronic locks to web apps.
Take a look at all the brands that avantio recommends in our marketplace.
What is a reality is that after all the challenges after the pandemic.
You can be sure we will notice the increase in “smart” solutions to take guest experiences one step further.
Tools with a human touch
It is important that by having all this stack of tools you do not lose sight of always keeping the guest experience as your goal.
Automating the processes to manage your vacation rental properties remotely should always be a tool.
These tools will allow you to have more time to be able to communicate more closely with the guests.
In recent years, due to the pandemic, people want to talk less on the phone but they will always be active on a chat.
There is more interest from guests for photos, amenities, and speed of communication with them as a differentiating factor when making a reservation.
Guests and also owners want to have a contact person 24 hours a day, 7 days a week or more.
Remember to also follow up on the trends of the industry there are other series of tools been used lately such as:
- Home security (Make sure to take care of data regulations on your country regarding this)
- Noise monitoring
- House automation (Thermostats, air conditioning, etc)
It has been very interesting to share this remote management summary with you, we hope it will be very useful for your operations.
