Canada: Leading Smart Stay system and purpose-built software, Operto Guest Technologies, has announced an integration partnership with property management software MyVR, which is used by master-leased properties and high-growth vacation rental managers.
The integration aims to ensure that MyVR customers can easily access the Operto in-property automation software and solution for Smart Stays.
Operto – from the Italian word aperto; meaning to open – enables property managers to enhance their operations, making them more efficient and providing an elevated guest experience through a curated range of smart home technology. Operto’s purpose-built software makes this technology meaningful in a commercial setting.
MyVR says it provides short-term rental management and marketing software that is trusted by many of the industry’s fastest growing companies. MyVR hopes to compliment Operto’s existing offerings, already providing direct channel management, guest CRM, robust reporting and workflow automation.
Operto co-founder and CEO, Michael Driedger, said: “Our integration with MyVR will bring Operto’s Smart Stay property automation solutions to MyVR’s ever-expanding marketplace of tools for managers. This integration will save property managers lots of time, and therefore reduce costs, on both platforms.”
The firm seeks to solve operational issues commonly faced by professional property managers.
Its flagship solution fully automates guest entry by programming unique entry codes for every reservation onto keypad locks. With no action required by the manager, guests can get the convenience of a fully secure 24/7 self check-in – no app required.
MyVR co-founder and COO, Markus Nordvik, said: “We are excited to introduce such an innovative product to our clients. Most of our clients are growing rapidly and integrations like Operto help our clients scale their business while providing a world-class guest experience.”
Operto’s range of Smart Stay solutions also includes monitoring of noise, occupancy and air quality. Energy savings are realised through intelligent thermostat control, while smart alerts and scheduling reduce turnover time and repetitive tasks.
In addition, the company is currently working with hotels, vacation rentals, serviced apartments as well as more niche accommodation alternatives across North America, Europe, Asia and the Caribbean.
