Autohost partners with Streamline

Canada: Guest-screening and verification software provider, Autohost has announced a partnership integration with property management software provider provider Streamline Vacation Rental Software.

The relationship provides increased security to Streamline customers, including access to Autohost’s unique guest verification and online check-in automation platform. This partnership comes just in time as property managers prepare for a surge in revenge travel as the Covid-19 pandemic dissipates.

With an increase in travellers comes an increase in risky bookings that can lead to parties, property damage, chargebacks, fraud and other criminal activities. By connecting with Autohost, reservations in Streamline will be automatically assessed for risk.

Every guest will be verified through Autohost’s online check-in portal before receiving any confidential or sensitive information, such as check-in instructions or smart lock access codes.

The integration will allow property managers access to Autohost’s full reservation risk assessment capabilities, including:

  • Chargeback protection
  • Party prevention
  • ID verification
  • Fraud detection
  • Payment validation
  • Security deposits
  • Background checks

Streamline offers an all-in-one solution for vacation rental managers, providing a CRM for guest marketing, revenue management, channel distribution and more. With Autohost now available in its marketplace, Streamline customers can implement automated guest screening to screen thousands of reservations and grow their portfolios, all without introducing additional resources.

Autohost CEO Roy Firestein said: “As a comprehensive solution for large-scale property managers, Streamline is the perfect fit for Autohost. Together we’ll be able to build more trust between operators and guests, advancing a gold standard for security in hospitality.

“Plus, with increased protection, professional property managers can focus less on security and guest vetting and more on what matters most: the guest experience,” he added.

Mike Norde, third party relationship manager at Streamline, said: “Streamline is excited to partner with Autohost and give our clients the ability to connect to a top tier guest-screening solution. Our goal is to always add value, and by integrating with Autohost we’re ensuring that our clients and their owners’ inventory is protected.

“We look forward to a long and fruitful partnership together,” he added.
