Canada: Operto Guest Technologies has announced a partnership with enterprise property management software and trust accounting provider Lightmaker Property Manager [LMPM].
By joining with LMPM, Operto says it will further enhance its range of technological solutions which provide operational efficiency and best practice for professional property managers, as well as an enhanced personalised and comfortable experience for guests.
Operto provides property managers with a software platform to manage access, temperature control and noise/occupancy monitoring that streamlines operations and improves the host/guest relationship. Its collection of curated hardware and custom-built software makes internet of things (IoT) technology meaningful for property managers looking to scale their business.
LMPM, a cloud-based, mobile-first and pre-scaled enterprise-level PMS with trust accounting, has been in development for more than six years and is seen as the fastest replacement for legacy solutions, such as V12.
Michael Driedger, co-founder and CEO of Operto, said: “We are delighted to announce this partnership with LMPM and to further enhance our potential to offer ambitious property managers advanced technical tools to fully grow their short-term rental businesses.”
LMPM founder Adrian Barrett said: “Through its Smart Stay solution, Operto brings to the short-term rental market a unique offering to enhance the operational and property automation opportunities for property managers. We are excited to be joining forces to increase the potential for both sets of customers.”
Operto solves operational issues commonly faced by professional short-term rental property managers. The company’s flagship Smart Stay solution fully automates guest entry by programming unique entry codes for every reservation onto keypad locks.
According to Booking, 63 per cent of guests want a keyless solution for entry into a property. With no action required by the manager, guests get the convenience of fully secure 24/7 self check-in – no app required.
Operto’s range of Smart Stay solutions also includes monitoring of noise, occupancy, and air quality.
Energy savings are realised through intelligent thermostat control. Smart alerts and scheduling reduce turnover time and repetitive tasks for property managers which in turn reduce costs as well as reduce energy consumption.
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.
