Vancouver: Property automation startup and one of PhocusWire’s Hot 25 startups for 2019, Operto Guest Technologies, has announced it has rebranded from Slickspaces Technologies.
Following rapid expansion since its founding in 2016, the relaunch of the brand signifies a milestone for the company as its offering to hoteliers and vacation rental property managers is increased.
In the meantime, Operto has launched a next-generation operating dashboard, offering both hotel and property managers real-time insight and control over their inventory. The dashboard supports automation features including integrated keyless entry, noise and occupancy monitoring, temperature and energy control.
Operto – from the Italian word aperto; meaning to open – enables accommodation providers to enhance their operations, making them more efficient and providing an elevated guest experience through a curated range of smart-home technology and purpose-built software.
Operto founder Michael Driedger said: “We are really pleased to offer our software to the new wave of forward-thinking accommodation providers that are increasingly utilising tech to enhance operations and guest experience.
“Hotel and short-term rental property managers spend their days looking to make guests’ lives better, so with Operto we’ve focused on making their jobs simpler and the guest experience smoother. With the right technology, property managers and hoteliers get both happy guests, cost savings and increased revenue,” he added.
Operto seeks to solve operational issues that are commonly faced by property managers across the accommodation industry.
The flagship solution fully automates guest entry by programming unique entry codes for every reservation onto keypad locks. With no action required by front desk or booking staff, guests get the convenience of 24/7 self check-in, with no app required.
In another way, teams can divert their focus from transactional check-ins to personalised interactions that add value to their business.
In addition, Operto’s range of solutions also includes monitoring of noise, occupancy, and air quality, while energy costs are reduced through intelligent thermostat control. Guest welcome features make visitors feel at home, while smart alerts and scheduling reduces turnover time and more arduous tasks.
Operto is currently working with hotels, vacation rentals, serviced apartments as well as more niche accommodation alternatives across North America, Europe, Asia, and the Caribbean.
