UK: Edinburgh-based property management platform Bookster has announced its integration with global digital trust platform SUPERHOG to provide a new standard of trust and professionalism in the self-catering accommodation industry.
The collaboration is designed to make it simple and easy for Bookster holiday rental clients to benefit from services providing new levels of guest trust and automated bookings protection. tIt will also enable self-catering accommodation operators to automate the process of weeding out guests who are intent on breaking the trust relationship between property managers and guests.
Established in 2008, Bookster says that it is the first [and only] property management platform to have SUPERHOG integrated directly into the software.
Robin Morris, managing director of Bookster, said: “Trust is key in the self-catering industry, but it is fragile. By partnering together with SUPERHOG, we are able to offer property managers unique levels of protection, whilst automating the entire process to save time.
“We’re delighted to be able to support the industry as it re-opens, enhancing the experiences of guests and property managers alike,” he added.
Leo Walton, co-founder and growth director of SUPERHOG, said: “With the large-scale trust and protection gap in the short-term rental industry, SUPERHOG’s mission is to help eliminate the potential risks and help enhance the experience for hosts, operators and guests. By partnering with Bookster, we’re excited to bring trust and support to the growing ecosystem of short-term rentals.”
With bookings for holiday homes reaching new highs, there is a minority of people who do not respect the rules of the home, or are more interested in disruption than relaxation. From now on, the SUPERHOG and Bookster partnership will enable property managers to validate guests before arrival, protecting the bookings through virtual damage deposits.
