US: IQware, a global provider of hospitality technology software solutions, has announced a new integration with PointCentral, a provider of home automation solutions that allow property managers to offer a premium smart home experience with contactless check-in for guests.
Through the new IQware integration, an automated data transfer automatically creates and sends smart lock access codes to guests based on upcoming reservation dates, improving keyless access management and eliminating the need for property managers to access both platforms. The seamless connection between PointCentral and the IQpms Software provides a more convenient and safer rental experience for property managers, cleaning staff and guests.
IQware CEO Francois Greffard said: “At IQware, we are all about helping our vacation rental managers maximise revenue, increase occupancy and improve the overall guest experience. By offering an integration with the PointCentral suite of product offerings, IQware is now better positioned to help our clients streamline their processes and maximise efficiencies.”
For 20 years, IQware has been on the forefront of hospitality technology development that empowers lodging operators to increase bottom line dollars. In today’s market especially, contactless communication is very important to property owners.
Statistics from Entrata and on iPropertyManagement.com suggest that most vacation rentals are booked online and that renters are willing to pay more for properties that offer a smart home experience.
PointCentral president Sean Miller said: “We are proud to welcome IQware, Inc. into our family of integrated property management platforms. This is another important step in our platform evolution that delivers additional value to our existing customers and creates opportunities to expand our reach.
“With heightened awareness of health concerns and efforts to limit interactions with people, it’s important that property managers have direct access to our access control solution within any vacation property management platform they use,” he added.
PointCentral, a subsidiary of Alarm.com, provides short- and long-term residential property managers with a full suite of smart property solutions. The PointCentral platform monitors and controls single-family and multi-family rental properties throughout North America over a secure and reliable cellular network.
Founded in 1984, IQware helps hotels and other lodging operations find, book, know, host, and keep their guests. Today, IQware’s technology operates over 135,000 rooms, generating over $3.5 billion in annual gross revenue.
