Here at Avantio we’ve started 2023 as we mean to go on: continuing to evolve our tools and ecosystem to ensure maximum value and continued success for our clients!

Let’s take a look at all the latest updates to your vacation rental management system and what this means for your short-term rental business.

Create opportunities on your vacation rental management system

We know that converting OTA bookings to loyal, repeat guests is one of the key objectives and challenges for many short-term rental businesses. Of course, there are many tips and tools you can leverage to help form that lasting connection with your guests, from informative and engaging guest welcome books, to the convenience of keyless access.

If you’re familiar with our Opportunities Tool, you’ll know that this feature enables you to create custom proposals to send directly to your potential guests. By sending previous guests or new leads emails featuring properties that meet their criteria, and adding custom discounts, you’re boosting your likelihood of direct bookings using our vacation rental management system.

This is one of the top tools that Avantio clients use to entice guests back to their properties again and again, and it’s just one of the many features offered by our comprehensive vacation rental management system.

Improved filters

As always, we’ve been listening to your feedback and have made a few updates to this tool to make it even easier to create proposals to send to your clients – increasing guest loyalty and boosting your revenue.

Firstly, we’ve improved the search filters within our vacation rental management system, so it’s even easier to identify and share properties that meet your guests’ specifications or budget range. This means you can quickly find the perfect properties from your portfolio and share them swiftly with your guests improving their overall experience.

Our vacation rental management system is designed to streamline your workflow and make managing your short-term rental business a breeze. With these updates, we’re confident that you’ll see a significant improvement in your efficiency and guest satisfaction levels.

Automatically completed

Now, when you send your proposals using our vacation rental management system, the links automatically contain all details of your offer as you searched them in the system, including dates, number of occupants, etc. This means you no longer have to worry about manually inputting this information, saving you time and effort. Our vacation rental management system is designed to provide a seamless and transparent booking experience for your guests. When they view the property on your website, the proposal appears exactly the same as it does to you.

This also makes it crystal clear to prospective guests why you’ve selected this property for them, and exactly what’s included in the proposal you’re making. This level of customization, combined with the ease of use of our vacation rental management system, helps to boost your likelihood of securing direct bookings and increasing your revenue.

Upgraded designs

We know that a crucial step in the guest journey is desire to travel. That’s why we’ve made the proposal designs more attractive and with a more intuitive user experience. You can add any extras you may wish to upsell, then all that your clients have to do is click to book!

The upgraded designs are also optimized for mobile devices, so your guests can view the proposal conveniently while they’re on the go. It’s important to make the booking process as easy and stress-free as possible, so that your guests can focus on planning their trip and enjoying their stay.

Conversion notifications directly from your vacation rental management system

Finally, you’ll now receive a notification each time an opportunity is converted. This means you can track your success directly on the vacation rental management system and refine your strategy accordingly. After all, knowing which of your proposals are successful is the key to repeating the trick.

By having access to valuable insights, you can better understand which proposals are generating the most conversions and optimize your sales process. This feature is a game-changer for short-term rental businesses looking to boost their revenue or improve customer satisfaction.

The convenience of having this information at your fingertips will save you time and allow you to focus on other essential aspects of your business.

Automating Airbnb reviews on your vacation rental management system

As we know, Airbnb reviews are an essential part of building trust between guests and property managers. They’re the mark of a serious and seasoned guest or host, and properties and hosts with more positive reviews are significantly more likely to get booked. Furthermore, leaving reviews for your guests will often prompt them to do the same for you!

Of course, if you’re managing multiple guests each week, taking the time to leave reviews after each check-out can be a challenge. With our latest update, you can set up Airbnb guest reviews to be left automatically via the VRMS.

The predefined message is a positive review that you can customize and even deactivate from your VRMS. This means that you don’t need to think of a unique message for each guest review or take the time to send it. It’s all done for you!

Leaving guest reviews makes your listings gain more visibility in future guests’ searches, which helps you better position your accommodations and potentially get more bookings. And of course, maintaining your reviews is essential for helping you maintain your Airbnb Superhost status!

A vacation rental management system that offers owner flexibility

We know that sustainable business growth is a fine balance for many of our PMs. If one of your 2023 vacation rental KPIs is to increase your client portfolio, we’ve got you covered. We’re continuing to evolve our owner contracts, so you can offer more flexibility to owners and seal more deals!

Now, you can choose to configure settlements according to reservation date, check-in, or check-out – as well as selecting the number of days for each option. This makes it much easier to accommodate the preference of your existing and potential new clients. Use this new feature to show your clients you truly understand the varying needs of their short-term rental business!

This level of flexibility helps you to be more competitive, as it allows you to easily tailor your contracts to the specific needs of your clients. With the ability to offer more flexible terms and conditions, you can attract new customers and retain existing ones.

Also, by understanding your client’s needs and creating experiences that meet their requirements, you can build solid and long-term relationships. Together, with the other features available, this feature will help you achieve your 2023 vacation rental KPIs and sustainably grow your business.

Use this new feature to show your clients you truly understand the varying needs of their short-term rental business!
