The headache for independent owners like ourselves is the constant juggling of information and action related to our properties. Keeping our events calendars up to date; keeping tabs on deposits and payments; keeping others such as housekeepers and maintenance staff in the loop – the list goes on. And the headache cranks up for each additional property we own! Our Homes and Rooms Dashboard has the answer…
Review at a glance with the Homes and Rooms Dashboard
So it’s great to have all this information in one place where you can review the status and the data at a glance and take timely, appropriate action to control it. With the Homes and Rooms Dashboard, we can have it all in one place.
This configurable dashboard gives us an instant snapshot and finger on the button of our properties 24/7, wherever we have internet connection. Specially developed widgets are keeping tabs on virtually every aspect including: enquiry status, reservations, alerts, income tracking, communications, upcoming tasks and more. We can quickly snap to the most recent inquiries, reservations, communications and activities.
Need to know your precise real time reservations status? Just click on the appropriate Homes and Rooms Dashboard widget and the instant display shows how many and which guests have agreed to stay, paid deposits, fully paid, arrived, just departed, or cancelled for example. Click again and you have the individual reservation details.
Another clever widget, Alerts, flags up a held inquiry or email, an overdue payment or delayed reservation, a security deposit that’s due for refund or a guest review that has just been submitted. That last one is something we all want to jump on right away!
Use the Income Tracking widget and we can see how our finances are looking at a precise moment, or over a selected period, with the capability to drill down to the details, enabling us to keep close financial control and plan accordingly.
Because everyone has different priorities at different times, the Homes and Rooms Dashboard can be configured to suit our needs. Widgets can be dragged and dropped to another part of the screen and they can be expanded or collapsed according to needs and preferences. In this way, we can achieve the most efficient presentation of the information enabling a quicker grasp of situations.
With the Homes and Rooms Dashboard set up, we’re empowered and in control of our operations. But wait, isn’t there still an awful lot of routine work to be done? Let’s not forget the dealing with reservation inquiries, sending out emails, communicating with guests and partners or staff and so on…
This is where the Homes and Rooms Dashboard really becomes indispensable: it allows you to view in real time the automation of the very many communications needed to run a vacation property. How much or how little you automate of the process is down to your personal preference and the amount of time you have at your disposal. The service is set up to offer you full control whatever the level of automation.
And this is what helps give us the edge when dealing with inquiries and guests alike: a timely, constantly updated flow of information through the Homes and Rooms Dashboard to help run our properties smoothly and professionally.
