In the past decade, the vacation rental industry has rapidly grown. There’s been a major shift away from the non-family orientation of resorts and hotels and into the independence and family environment that a vacation home offers.
After the decline in home sales after the 2008 banking crisis, realtors began to see more profits from vacation rentals than commissions from sales. The market expanded rapidly and this created an increase in competition. It became clear that a streamlined vacation rental property management process needed to be created. Streamline was born!
For the past decade, Streamline has been working to simplify the vacation rental management process. To this end, they’ve created a suite of programs making it easier than ever before to manage a large number of properties by giving property managers every function they need to be effective.
Thanks to Streamline’s open API, it works together with other companies in the industry to provide you with the best possible solution to meet your company’s unique needs. The suite also features a CRM/Guest Marketing module for staying in touch with people who have stayed in your properties. Track and understand trends and behaviors, maximize conversions and really know your guests. By keeping track of guest details you can design future targeted marketing campaigns to grow your revenues with repeat visits.
This is just the beginning. With tools for managing inbound leads using autoresponders, to setting up, managing and tracking maintenance, and ability to create custom apps to maximize the guest experience, (to name just a few features!) Streamline is a truly comprehensive toolkit for the professional property manager.
