US: Technology and solution provider, Harmonisoft, has announced the launch of its software platform EZcare in a rebranding from its previous name, EZ Inspections, which is designed to fully modernise back-of-house management for short- and long-term rentals.
The EZcare platform uses automation with the aim of saving hundreds of hours each month for administrative managers and field staff alike. In order to differentiate itself from existing property care solutions in the housing rental industry, it has included customisable features, integrations with property management systems including Streamline, Escapia, Track and Rent Manager, and what it believes is an affordable price point.
The EZcare team is being led by hospitality industry veteran Brian Butler, who previously led sales and operations teams at NAVIS, Vacasa, and TurnKey Vacation Rentals.
Butler said: “I know firsthand how challenging it is to manage care-taking for a portfolio of rental properties. By focusing on those unique needs, EZcare will help busy managers reclaim time, save money, and gain field-level visibility through automation and technology.”
Managers will be able to quickly schedule tasks through a drag-and-drop calendar, while field staff can receive and manage assignments through the EZcare mobile app. It also has its own customisable inspection template builder, and a suite of other modules, such as mobile invoicing, inventory control and linen packing.
Ian Pritchett, director of operations for California-based Oranj Palm Vacation Rentals, said in a press release: “Working with EZcare has been amazing. We’ve been trying to move to mobile inspections for years, but all other companies have always been far too expensive, unable to meet our specific needs, or both.”
Butler cites the EZcare technology team’s willingness to partner with customers on customisation as a potential game-changer within the industry.
He said: “Since we work with property managers of all sizes around the globe, we frequently receive requests for specific features to meet a company’s particular needs. Our development team works directly with management company owners to understand, develop and implement new tools that give our customers the efficiencies they need to save costs and stay competitive.”
