US: Enterprise-scale property automation solution, PointCentral, has integrated its smart home technology with Seattle-based OwnerRez, Smakers of Property Management Systems for rental managers.
The PointCentral integration automatically assigns unique access codes for the keyless locks installed in rental properties and updates as needed for date changes and early/late check-in and check-out times.
OwnerRez CEO Paul Waldschmidt said: “After receiving numerous requests from our vacation rental management customers to integrate our software with PointCentral, we reached out to them to make it happen.
“By automatically creating lock codes for guests, property managers using OwnerRez software will no longer find it necessary to hand out keys at the office, allowing guests to get a faster start on their vacations, and staff to focus on more critical management issues. It’s a win-win for everyone,” he added.
PointCentral president Sean Miller said: “This latest integration with OwnerRez makes 23 companies who have decided to interface their software with PointCentral Property Automation technology.
“Eliminating keys for vacation rental property managers is a big deal because it not only saves a lot of headaches, it increases guest safety and satisfaction. And as so often occurs, changes to dates and arrival times will be automatically adjusted, ensuring that lock codes work the first time, every time,” he added.
