Vacation Rental Software Overview

Our software suite breakdown

Our Software Suite

The vacation rental industry has grown leaps and bounds over the past 10 years. Many U.S. families have started to shift away from the non-family orientation of hotels and into the family environment behind a vacation home. After the decline in home sales in 2008, realtors began to see more profit in renting vacation rentals vs commissions from sales, causing an influx in market competition. With so much competition in a market that was already growing, it became clear that a streamlined process needed to be created. That's where we came in.

For the last 10 years, Streamline has worked tirelessly to simplify the vacation rental management process. Our quality suite of programs has made it easier than ever before to manage a large volume of properties by providing property managers with every function they may need. As you'll see, this is truly the all-in-one software suite you have been looking for!

Lead Management: Creating a quote and responding to a quote request can become your first impression to a client, and is thus one of the most important parts of any vacation rental management software. With Streamline, a quote can be automatically generated within seconds by our system or your sales agents can generate a personalized quote under a minute. That means no more manually responding to leads, no more manual price calculation, and no more copy and pasting!

Websites: For us and many others in the industry, website design is a constant study on what works to attract the demographic you target, and "what works" constantly changes. However, with Streamline, you can be secure in the knowledge that we have taken the extra step to stay ahead of the curve. From desktop computer, to tables, to mobile responsive websites. Each one has unique visitors.

Responsive/Adaptive Websites: Google put their foot down in April. They made it public that they give more weight to phone searches for websites that are responsive and adaptive. As mentioned above, we stay abreast of these changes in website design, and have made certain all our current and potential clients were ready for this latest evolution. We did this by creating a great suite of responsive and adaptive websites, so you can stay in Google's good graces.

Trust Accounting: This is a critical component to your company. Operating in trust is extremely similar to running a title company, which manages escrow. Fortunately, when you have the right technology in place, this is easily accomplished with little effort. That's why Streamline provides the technology and the functionality for trust accounting.

Distribution Channels: It's very important to diversify your portfolio and consider every possible booking source! To help you achieve that end, we integrate with the most powerful distribution channels in the industry to help generate as many bookings as possible. Booking.com, AirBnB, Expedia, Homeaway, VRBO and the list goes on and on. Don't put all your eggs in one basket. Automate, distribute and increase bookings.

Partners: We surround ourselves with innovation and utilize those partners who dedicate their technology to specific areas. Automated locks, distribution channels, full home management, yield management, electronic signatures, powerful marketing software like NAVIS, integrated email newsletter capability, and more. These are just some of the partners that we utilize to improve your vacation rental management company.

CRM: Everyone advertises that they provide a CRM. With our mobile apps and our powerful automated document system, you are able to build stronger relationships. Profiling guests for targeted marketing is extremely critical. As a property manager, a small investment in your most loyal customers will go a long way. Remember, repeat business will change your "stress level".

Document System: We have created a document system that is driven by triggers. These triggers are any relationship to a reservation, owner activity, housekeeping actions, maintenance activity. Once the trigger takes place, the document is sent out, automating the process so you can spend less time manually dealing with certain tasks. These are custom documents that are created dynamically and created by YOU for YOU. Days before check-in, days after check-out, lead management status, hours a reservation has been on hold and the list is extensive are just a few documents you can create with our powerful system. The right trigger will go a long way.

P.O.S.: Streamline also offers an advanced point of sale system, which allows you to keep inventory. Many clients use this feature for running their small shops or sales at their vacation rental offices. You can take in inventory to enable you to do average costing, create triggers to notify you when specific items need to be replenished, and even integrate this feature with your maintenance area to manage that critical light bulb inventory!

Reporting Suite: Our extensive list of reports allow you to understand how your company is performing. And, while you are able to create your own custom reports, our reports will provide you with the information you need to understand your performance. Our revenue forecasting report allows you to see into the future for company and individual units, while pacing reports enable you to compare today vs last year on this date. We help you understand where your business is coming from, and if any significant shifts! You may be doing a lot better than you think!

Monthly Owner Statements: Enter any fees you want to charge your owners, define your date range, click generate and approve them. That's it. No need to go into Quickbooks or any other third party software. For those of us who truly want to Streamline this process, set up ACH and you don't even have to pick up the checks at the printer! It's that simple. ACH will deposit money directly into their account.

Vendor Payables: Streamline has a very powerful vendor payables system, which allows you to pay vendors and keep a historical list of payments for those vendors who think they were not paid! How convenient would it be to pay your owners and your vendors with a few clicks and the confidence that they were paid with ACH?

Payment Types: We allow you to pay owners and vendors via checks and ACH. Print your check, align your delivery address and send your checks! These checks will be logged into the owner statements which will allow them to see what check was used to pay them.

Bulk Mail: Our custom bulkmail system, replaces third party systems and allows you to create dynamic lists to target specific niches. Target marketing works!

Yielding: Our industry and other industries have historically increased their revenues by yielding their rates. Yielding rates is a constant study and evaluation of pricing and occupancy in your area. Studying the supply and demand curves in your home locations, allows you to maximize your revenue!

Vision: Our vision is to create a software system that provides property managers with exactly what they need to operate as efficiently as possible.

"By property managers, For property managers" is not just a slogan. It is what has made Streamline the fastest growing property management software in the industry. We are committed to grow technically, creatively and innovatively as we move into the future. The moment you feel that you have reached the top, you will begin a quick descent to the bottom. Surround yourself with the best and they will always challenge you to create new ideas and continue to be the best. This also comes with a commitment to deliver industry leading customer service and groundbreaking property management solutions to our valued partners".

Robust Accounting

When it comes to property management software, having robust accounting functionality is truly a must. That's why, here at Streamline, we offer three different types of accounting to keep you in trust, all according to your need and expectation. All three are unique and cater to your specific needs, while aiding in keeping you in trust.

Trust Accounting

One of the most critical components of a property management software system is the capability to provide trust accounting. When dealing with trust accounting, you have to look beyond the wording on websites. "We offer trust accounting" , this is a claim almost everyone makes. And yet, every state can have unique definitions of what they consider to be trust accounting , some of which have almost no specific regulations. Though that does not imply that you should not run your system without the concept of trust accounting, it does mean that doing your research is a very important part of determining what your state's trust accounting rules may be. After all, you do not want to be audited and have your business shut down for operating out of trust, and there are no. While software systems can attempt to keep your accounting in trust, if you choose to start using money that is in trust against the rules within your state, there is not a software system out there that can audit your activity based on the rules in your state. To give you one example, in Arizona, long-term rentals have a very unique policy. In the most common definition of trust accounting, you are allowed to pay bills on behalf of the owners using the trust account. The state of Arizona takes this a bit further for long-term rentals. You CANNOT pay a bill for an owner who does not have the funds in their account to pay for that bill. If you are caught doing this, you are considered to be operating outside of trust and you can be shut down. Just do your extra research and operate within the guidelines of your state. Everything will be fine. We also offer a variety of revenue recognition rules. While this does not necessarily fall into trust accounting, when it is time to be audited, you will most definitely need to explain when you recognize revenue. When we recognize revenue, the money is in trust to the OWNER. Be very careful. At revenue recognition, the money does not belong to the property management company! We offer.

  • Daily Revenue Recognition
  • Check-in Revenue Recognition
  • Check-out Revenue Recognition
  • Cash Accounting (This is a newer concept that is becoming popular in this market)

Now that That's out of the way, here are the three major methods of accounting that come standard with Streamline software; Read on for more information!

  • Fully compatible with Other Accounting Software , If you have a high level of comfort with your accounting software, we understand completely. That's why we provide compatibility with most accounting software, so you don't have to make a change that you don't want to!
  • Commission Based Accounting , With commission based accounting, you can learn exactly what you've made at the end of the day , all with no hassle. With profit and loss statements, balance sheets, and everything else you need to make commission based accounting possible, this is one of the most powerful tools that Streamline has to offer. Click to read more.

Here at Streamline, we understand that accounting is one of the most important parts of running a property management business. That's why we offer the most robust and customizable suite of trust accounting functionalities in the business! For more information, call Streamline today; we can't wait to hear from you soon.

Distribution Channels

Generating reservations is the way that property managers survive. For many of us, we are lucky enough to have a strong repeat business source for income. However, these are the minority, as most others rely on several sources to generate income. One of the most common resources of the past few years have been Google, VRBO, Homeaway and TripAdvisor. Unfortunately, these revenue sources have become clogged with competition, making it extremely hard for many to get what they need from these avenues. So what should you do when something that represented 60% of your revenue has been cut nearly in half? This is where distribution channels come in. Here at Streamline, we do our best to make sure that you aren't just going for the big boys in the industry, but are also diversifying your booking portfolio. We integrate with many third party distribution channels besides VRBO, Homeaway, and others to get your properties in front of eyes and away from the major competition. Let's review some of our partners and what they have to offer:

Homeaway/VRBO:

Our system seamlessly integrates with Homeaway/VRBO with the Book Now feature. We basically update and fully integrate with Homeaway/VRBO. Your descriptions, pictures, amenities, and any information necessary to create a quality listing on these booking engines are automated. No more logging in to your account in order to update photos or any other components of your list. The Book Now feature brings reservations directly into Streamline as a reservation made from Homeaway/VRBO.

BookingPal:

BookingPal provides connectivity to many small booking engines. However, they are now bringing on some of the industry giants. Such as Booking.com, AirBnB.com and Expedia. BookingPal also connects directly with Streamline to make sure that bookings are done seamlessly. They are extremely aggressive with their channel acquisition and have contracts in place with many major players in the travel industry.

Tourico:

When we decided to work with Tourico, it truly defined diversifying your portfolio. They open the market to new and creative methods for generating leads. They work closely with major travel agents around the world and have an amazing track record with property management companies. This is not your standard push into a Booking.com, this creates an innovative method to generate more bookings. Tourico will be fully integrated with Streamline and reservations will come into your system real time.

VacayHome Connect

VacayHome Connect is the leading connectivity and full-service distribution partner for the vacation rental industry, enhancing online presence and increasing bookings of professionally managed vacation homes, resorts and serviced apartments via prominent distribution channels like HomeAway, VRBO, Airbnb, Booking.com, Expedia, TripAdvisor, CTrip and our exclusive membership and loyalty channels.  Integrated with the majority of the leading property and channel management systems the VacayHome Connect platform connects billions of dollars of instantly bookable inventory to millions of travelers around the world.

Partners

In order to be the best, you need to learn from the best. Our clients drive the ingenuity and knowledge to remain ahead of our competition. Streamline specializes in property management software, but creating direct and seamless connections with other companies that provide quality solutions only makes our property management companies stronger. We will go through some of our current partners and briefly explain the tactical and strategic components that led us to establish our partnership.

Homeaway/VRBO

It is a well-known fact that they are a leader in the vacation rental booking world. They are the backbone that has supported and helped create many of the property management companies that exist today. With that in mind, we are fully integrated with Homeaway/VRBO and any bookings that are made through the "BOOK NOW" button, seamlessly included with our system.

TripAdvisor

TripAdvisor is very prominent on search engines and are a must in the property management industry! Recently rebranded to utilize TripAdvisor as a traveler magnet, the integration of these two companies creates a very strong synergy which will add to bookings and lead generation. We are very excited about the future of TripAdvisor and we are fully integrated with their API.

CSA/Rental Guardian/Red Sky Insurance

Insurance is always that cost where you pay to avoid worrying , and future catastrophes. Damage waivers and trip insurance provide this same comfort level to travelers. They may never utilize the service, but the cost is miniscule in relation to the reservation cost. Therefore, people will need to weigh the pros and cons of using insurance. Did you know that when a renter is in your unit, your generic Home Insurance plans do not cover the home? There are different types of Home Insurance and many of them will not cover anything that happens while a renter is in the unit. These companies are trying to figure out ways to reduce your liability and come up with solutions that will also remove these risks from you. CSA and Rental Guardian are fully automated. Red Sky is a partner but they are still working on an integration platform.

BookingPal

BookingPal is a very exciting product that has entered the industry. Their techniques and their approach to distribution are very unique, and they continue to grow at an alarming rate. What does this mean for you and Streamline? Well, because they have spent a lot of time to make sure that their negotiations with each individual channel caters to the property manager, you are able to profit.

Tourico

We keep going back to diversifying your portfolio. As they say, never put all your eggs in one basket; fortunately, Tourico allows you to avoid precisely that! Tourico is a very unique partner, as they cater to business to business transactions. They work with companies like American Express and Wells Fargo to help manage travel based on points. They also are the official travel agency for Sam's Club. This alone gives them access to 25 million people. They also work with private travel agents and their relationships will bring a new type of clientele.

VacayHome Connect

VacayHome Connect is the leading connectivity and full-service distribution partner for the vacation rental industry, enhancing online presence and increasing bookings of professionally managed vacation homes, resorts and serviced apartments via prominent distribution channels like HomeAway, VRBO, Airbnb, Booking.com, Expedia, TripAdvisor, CTrip and our exclusive membership and loyalty channels.  Integrated with the majority of the leading property and channel management systems the VacayHome Connect platform connects billions of dollars of instantly bookable inventory to millions of travelers around the world.

NAVIS

A leader in phone tracking, conversions and training for the sales process. Our system talks to Navis to make sure that they have the most up-to-date information available to Streamline.

Gateways

Many years ago, when we started with Streamline, we felt that building a strong network with industry gateways would provide clients with options. This would give the flexibility and a high comfort level to the property management companies we worked with and allow them to realize that we do not FORCE you to do anything. After all, this is your property management company and you should operate it however you want. We do not discourage clients who have great relationships with the existing credit card processor. Providing flexible ACH solutions has become a very important feature when integrating with Gateways. Moving forward, international processing capabilities will become another critical component.

MyRateManager

There comes a point where you simply cannot take the time to study occupancy and rates across similar homes every single day. That is when you let a computer algorithm do that work for you, this is where yielding rates comes into play, and why we use MyRateManager.

PayByGroup

This is one of the most creative payment ideas we have seen in years. Many reservations include multiple families who split the cost amongst the members of the family. PayByGroup helps manage the collection of that money. With its unique technology, it makes sure that all parties pay for their share of the reservation. This takes away that "leader" role that we have to assign to someone in our vacation group. It is stressful and awkward to keep calling other members of your party and asking for money.

ResortLock/KABA/Point Central/Lock State Connect

This is definitely the future of property management automation. These companies remove the need for keys, while automating the generation of codes for a guest's stays. The investment that you will make on purchasing those door locks will save you the headache of managing keys. How many times have you lost your keys? Only to call the property manager in the middle of the night to let them know you cannot get into the home. Say goodbye to those days. With our guest app, which allows guests to always have access to their lock code, as well as the automation and integration of these amazing technologies, entry into a home for your guest becomes the least of your worries. Each of these companies have very unique approaches to how they control the codes for the doors. From algorithms already existing within the door, to wifi management of door lock codes, to cellular management of door lock codes. It is important to do your research and make a decision that you can be confident with for many years to come. Purchasing locks is definitely an investment, but after that, you will be opening new doors!

BeHome247

BeHome247 provides full control of your home and puts it at the palm of your guests' hands. At the same time, you are able to view and control everything that is happening at the homes from a property management standpoint. This is the next generation in home automation. Automatically generate door codes, open doors directly from your mobile phone, preset AC levels for your guests, control lighting for your guests prior to arrival while also putting all of these controls on the guests hands. With notifications on problems with wifi, thermostat, appliances and any type of changes in temperature (critical for winter locations). Remember, repeat guests and happy owners will make your company successful over the long haul. Saving $$$$ for owners is extremely exciting to owners. Surround yourself with the best in the industry, to be the best in the industry. We focus on our solutions for property management. We integrate with partners to tap into their experience and ingenuity to provide a better all-around solution. Who wants to log into 10 different systems when they are all related to property management. We know we don't; choose Streamline today to take care of this unmatched integration, and see why we, and our partners, are the best in the business!

Lead Management & Customer Relations Management

As property managers, our #1 concern tends to be generating revenue. Probably a very good focal point for continued success. The most important correlation to revenue becomes the owners and your guests. It truly comes down to optimizing the ability to make reservations and maintaining relationships with guests. It also ties into creating a relationship with your owners. What if you could automate all of this? Our lead management system and our customer relation management tools will help to achieve these goals and more.

Our Lead Management System

Here at Streamline, we have the most advanced and creative conversion process. By looking into response times, maximizing quote generation, and putting checks and balance in place, we enable property managers to fill the demands of speed and inquiry conversions. When you put our call tracking system, online chat and SMS platforms in place, you have begun to control your lead sources and enable nearly every form of communication with a client. How many times have you told your sales agents to make sure they select the "Heard About Us" dropdown? How else are you going to know what generates money for you! But, with our phone tracking system, you do not need to rely on your agents any more. No longer will you have to worry about the "Heard About Us" dropdown, and no longer will you have to puzzle out where your leads are coming from; you will know exactly where the call came from and that phone number determines the source of the call. There are many other features that come into play with our call management component on our lead management system but we encourage you to have a demo and see the full capabilities for yourself! How amazing would it be to receive a phone call and know paramount information concerning the caller? Information that you simply must know when running a property management company, such as if they are actually in your system? With Streamline, this functionality is just the tip of the iceberg. You'll be able to record calls and tie them into the folio, tap into a call as the manager and listen for training purposes, and even get a transcription of the phone call and analyze calls for specific keywords! Yes, I know this sounds too good to be true; but, as we continue to add functionality, Streamline continues to separate itself from its competitors. Creativity, ingenuity and experience in the property management industry has allowed us to become innovators. These are just a few reasons why our Lead Management system is the best in the industry!

Customer Relationship Management

Marketing & knowing your target audience is critical in the success of your business. Knowing things such as who you are talking to on the phone and who you should be targeting, depending on the time of year are all extremely important to improving your rental conversion rates. Fortunately, with our CRM system, you will be able to define guest characteristics that are specific to those guests and no one else. This will help give you insight into a variety of guest characteristics that you can use to increase the chance you'll add them as a customer. For instance, when a call comes in to the system, you will actually know what that person likes based on previous experiences. No matter if they enjoy hiking, are bikers, or take pictures, you will know, and you can tailor your sale to those characteristics! With our CRM, you'll also be able to send bulkmail to all of your hikers that made a reservation with you in 2014 because you have an upcoming hiking event. Remember; the goal of our CRM is to create the ultimate relationship between your guests and your marketing reach. Make sure that you maximize conversions when you are trying to increase sales. If you target the correct audience, at the right time, you will maximize your conversions and revenues. Here are some other aspects our CRM provides:

  • When clients are not clicking into your quotes, it means there was no interaction to view the homes. This should trigger a phone call. Our system tracks whether your quote was delivered to the guest.
  • With the beauty of chat technology, you can create triggers in our system to let you know that it is time to engage with the client. If they have been looking at the home for over a minute, you will be alerted and you can touch base with the prospective guest!

Companies with the power to control all of these areas in lead management tend to be the most successful property management companies in their specific areas. Call today to learn more about our Lead Management and CRM system, and we will help you become one of these successful management companies!

Vendor Payables: Streamline has a very powerful vendor payables system, which allows you to pay vendors and keep a historical list of payments for those vendors who think they were not paid!

Robust Accounting

When it comes to property management software, having robust accounting functionality is truly a must. That's why, here at Streamline, we offer three different types of accounting to keep you in trust, all according to your need and expectation. All three are unique and cater to your specific needs, while aiding in keeping you in trust.

Trust Accounting

One of the most critical components of a property management software system is the capability to provide trust accounting. When dealing with trust accounting, you have to look beyond the wording on websites. "We offer trust accounting", this is a claim almost everyone makes. And yet, every state can have unique definitions of what they consider to be trust accounting, some of which have almost no specific regulations. Though that does not imply that you should not run your system without the concept of trust accounting, it does mean that doing your research is a very important part of determining what your state's trust accounting rules may be. After all, you do not want to be audited and have your business shut down for operating out of trust, and there are no. While software systems can attempt to keep your accounting in trust, if you choose to start using money that is in trust against the rules within your state, there is not a software system out there that can audit your activity based on the rules in your state. To give you one example, in Arizona, long-term rentals have a very unique policy. In the most common definition of trust accounting, you are allowed to pay bills on behalf of the owners using the trust account. The state of Arizona takes this a bit further for long-term rentals. You CANNOT pay a bill for an owner who does not have the funds in their account to pay for that bill. If you are caught doing this, you are considered to be operating outside of trust and you can be shut down. Just do your extra research and operate within the guidelines of your state. Everything will be fine. We also offer a variety of revenue recognition rules. While this does not necessarily fall into trust accounting, when it is time to be audited, you will most definitely need to explain when you recognize revenue. When we recognize revenue, the money is in trust to the OWNER. Be very careful. At revenue recognition, the money does not belong to the property management company! We offer.

  • Daily Revenue Recognition
  • Check-in Revenue Recognition
  • Check-out Revenue Recognition
  • Cash Accounting (This is a newer concept that is becoming popular in this market)

Now that That's out of the way, here are the three major methods of accounting that come standard with Streamline software; Read on for more information!

  • Fully compatible with Other Accounting Software, If you have a high level of comfort with your accounting software, we understand completely. That's why we provide compatibility with most accounting software, so you don't have to make a change that you don't want to!
  • Commission Based Accounting, With commission based accounting, you can learn exactly what you've made at the end of the day, all with no hassle. With profit and loss statements, balance sheets, and everything else you need to make commission based accounting possible, this is one of the most powerful tools that Streamline has to offer.

Here at Streamline, we understand that accounting is one of the most important parts of running a property management business. That's why we offer the most robust and customizable suite of trust accounting functionalities in the business! For more information, call Streamline today; we can't wait to hear from you soon.

Distribution Channels

Generating reservations is the way that property managers survive. For many of us, we are lucky enough to have a strong repeat business source for income. However, these are the minority, as most others rely on several sources to generate income. One of the most common resources of the past few years have been Google, VRBO, Homeaway and TripAdvisor. Unfortunately, these revenue sources have become clogged with competition, making it extremely hard for many to get what they need from these avenues. So what should you do when something that represented 60% of your revenue has been cut nearly in half? This is where distribution channels come in. Here at Streamline, we do our best to make sure that you aren't just going for the big boys in the industry, but are also diversifying your booking portfolio. We integrate with many third party distribution channels besides VRBO, Homeaway, and others to get your properties in front of eyes and away from the major competition. Let's review some of our partners and what they have to offer:

Homeaway/VRBO:

Our system seamlessly integrates with Homeaway/VRBO with the Book Now feature. We basically update and fully integrate with Homeaway/VRBO. Your descriptions, pictures, amenities, and any information necessary to create a quality listing on these booking engines are automated. No more logging in to your account in order to update photos or any other components of your list. The Book Now feature brings reservations directly into Streamline as a reservation made from Homeaway/VRBO.

BookingPal:

BookingPal provides connectivity to many small booking engines. However, they are now bringing on some of the industry giants. Such as Booking.com, AirBnB.com and Expedia. BookingPal also connects directly with Streamline to make sure that bookings are done seamlessly. They are extremely aggressive with their channel acquisition and have contracts in place with many major players in the travel industry.

Tourico:

When we decided to work with Tourico, it truly defined diversifying your portfolio. They open the market to new and creative methods for generating leads. They work closely with major travel agents around the world and have an amazing track record with property management companies. This is not your standard push into a Booking.com, this creates an innovative method to generate more bookings. Tourico will be fully integrated with Streamline and reservations will come into your system real time.

VacayHome Connect

VacayHome Connect is the leading connectivity and full-service distribution partner for the vacation rental industry, enhancing online presence and increasing bookings of professionally managed vacation homes, resorts and serviced apartments via prominent distribution channels like HomeAway, VRBO, Airbnb, Booking.com, Expedia, TripAdvisor, CTrip and our exclusive membership and loyalty channels.  Integrated with the majority of the leading property and channel management systems the VacayHome Connect platform connects billions of dollars of instantly bookable inventory to millions of travelers around the world.

Partners

In order to be the best, you need to learn from the best. Our clients drive the ingenuity and knowledge to remain ahead of our competition. Streamline specializes in property management software, but creating direct and seamless connections with other companies that provide quality solutions only makes our property management companies stronger. We will go through some of our current partners and briefly explain the tactical and strategic components that led us to establish our partnership.

Homeaway/VRBO

It is a well-known fact that they are a leader in the vacation rental booking world. They are the backbone that has supported and helped create many of the property management companies that exist today. With that in mind, we are fully integrated with Homeaway/VRBO and any bookings that are made through the "BOOK NOW" button, seamlessly included with our system.

TripAdvisor

TripAdvisor is very prominent on search engines and are a must in the property management industry! Recently rebranded to utilize TripAdvisor as a traveler magnet, the integration of these two companies creates a very strong synergy which will add to bookings and lead generation. We are very excited about the future of TripAdvisor and we are fully integrated with their API.

CSA/Rental Guardian/Red Sky Insurance

Insurance is always that cost where you pay to avoid worrying, and future catastrophes. Damage waivers and trip insurance provide this same comfort level to travelers. They may never utilize the service, but the cost is miniscule in relation to the reservation cost. Therefore, people will need to weigh the pros and cons of using insurance. Did you know that when a renter is in your unit, your generic Home Insurance plans do not cover the home? There are different types of Home Insurance and many of them will not cover anything that happens while a renter is in the unit. These companies are trying to figure out ways to reduce your liability and come up with solutions that will also remove these risks from you. CSA and Rental Guardian are fully automated. Red Sky is a partner but they are still working on an integration platform.

BookingPal

BookingPal is a very exciting product that has entered the industry. Their techniques and their approach to distribution are very unique, and they continue to grow at an alarming rate. What does this mean for you and Streamline? Well, because they have spent a lot of time to make sure that their negotiations with each individual channel caters to the property manager, you are able to profit.

Tourico

We keep going back to diversifying your portfolio. As they say, never put all your eggs in one basket; fortunately, Tourico allows you to avoid precisely that! Tourico is a very unique partner, as they cater to business to business transactions. They work with companies like American Express and Wells Fargo to help manage travel based on points. They also are the official travel agency for Sam's Club. This alone gives them access to 25 million people. They also work with private travel agents and their relationships will bring a new type of clientele.

VacayHome Connect

VacayHome Connect is the leading connectivity and full-service distribution partner for the vacation rental industry, enhancing online presence and increasing bookings of professionally managed vacation homes, resorts and serviced apartments via prominent distribution channels like HomeAway, VRBO, Airbnb, Booking.com, Expedia, TripAdvisor, CTrip and our exclusive membership and loyalty channels.  Integrated with the majority of the leading property and channel management systems the VacayHome Connect platform connects billions of dollars of instantly bookable inventory to millions of travelers around the world.

NAVIS

A leader in phone tracking, conversions and training for the sales process. Our system talks to Navis to make sure that they have the most up-to-date information available to Streamline.

Gateways

Many years ago, when we started with Streamline, we felt that building a strong network with industry gateways would provide clients with options. This would give the flexibility and a high comfort level to the property management companies we worked with and allow them to realize that we do not FORCE you to do anything. After all, this is your property management company and you should operate it however you want. We do not discourage clients who have great relationships with the existing credit card processor. Providing flexible ACH solutions has become a very important feature when integrating with Gateways. Moving forward, international processing capabilities will become another critical component.

MyRateManager

There comes a point where you simply cannot take the time to study occupancy and rates across similar homes every single day. That is when you let a computer algorithm do that work for you, this is where yielding rates comes into play, and why we use MyRateManager.

PayByGroup

This is one of the most creative payment ideas we have seen in years. Many reservations include multiple families who split the cost amongst the members of the family. PayByGroup helps manage the collection of that money. With its unique technology, it makes sure that all parties pay for their share of the reservation. This takes away that "leader" role that we have to assign to someone in our vacation group. It is stressful and awkward to keep calling other members of your party and asking for money.

ResortLock/KABA/Point Central/Lock State Connect

This is definitely the future of property management automation. These companies remove the need for keys, while automating the generation of codes for a guest's stays. The investment that you will make on purchasing those door locks will save you the headache of managing keys. How many times have you lost your keys? Only to call the property manager in the middle of the night to let them know you cannot get into the home. Say goodbye to those days. With our guest app, which allows guests to always have access to their lock code, as well as the automation and integration of these amazing technologies, entry into a home for your guest becomes the least of your worries. Each of these companies have very unique approaches to how they control the codes for the doors. From algorithms already existing within the door, to wifi management of door lock codes, to cellular management of door lock codes. It is important to do your research and make a decision that you can be confident with for many years to come. Purchasing locks is definitely an investment, but after that, you will be opening new doors!

BeHome247

BeHome247 provides full control of your home and puts it at the palm of your guests' hands. At the same time, you are able to view and control everything that is happening at the homes from a property management standpoint. This is the next generation in home automation.

Lead Management & Customer Relations Management

As property managers, our #1 concern tends to be generating revenue. Probably a very good focal point for continued success. The most important correlation to revenue becomes the owners and your guests. It truly comes down to optimizing the ability to make reservations and maintaining relationships with guests. It also ties into creating a relationship with your owners. What if you could automate all of this? Our lead management system and our customer relation management tools will help to achieve these goals and more.

Our Lead Management System

Here at Streamline, we have the most advanced and creative conversion process. By looking into response times, maximizing quote generation, and putting checks and balance in place, we enable property managers to fill the demands of speed and inquiry conversions. When you put our call tracking system, online chat and SMS platforms in place, you have begun to control your lead sources and enable nearly every form of communication with a client. How many times have you told your sales agents to make sure they select the "Heard About Us" dropdown? How else are you going to know what generates money for you! But, with our phone tracking system, you do not need to rely on your agents any more. No longer will you have to worry about the "Heard About Us" dropdown, and no longer will you have to puzzle out where your leads are coming from; you will know exactly where the call came from and that phone number determines the source of the call. There are many other features that come into play with our call management component on our lead management system but we encourage you to have a demo and see the full capabilities for yourself! How amazing would it be to receive a phone call and know paramount information concerning the caller? Information that you simply must know when running a property management company, such as if they are actually in your system? With Streamline, this functionality is just the tip of the iceberg. You'll be able to record calls and tie them into the folio, tap into a call as the manager and listen for training purposes, and even get a transcription of the phone call and analyze calls for specific keywords! Yes, I know this sounds too good to be true; but, as we continue to add functionality, Streamline continues to separate itself from its competitors. Creativity, ingenuity and experience in the property management industry has allowed us to become innovators. These are just a few reasons why our Lead Management system is the best in the industry!

Customer Relationship Management

Marketing & knowing your target audience is critical in the success of your business. Knowing things such as who you are talking to on the phone and who you should be targeting, depending on the time of year are all extremely important to improving your rental conversion rates. Fortunately, with our CRM system, you will be able to define guest characteristics that are specific to those guests and no one else. This will help give you insight into a variety of guest characteristics that you can use to increase the chance you'll add them as a customer. For instance, when a call comes in to the system, you will actually know what that person likes based on previous experiences. No matter if they enjoy hiking, are bikers, or take pictures, you will know, and you can tailor your sale to those characteristics! With our CRM, you'll also be able to send bulkmail to all of your hikers that made a reservation with you in 2014 because you have an upcoming hiking event. Remember; the goal of our CRM is to create the ultimate relationship between your guests and your marketing reach. Make sure that you maximize conversions when you are trying to increase sales. If you target the correct audience, at the right time, you will maximize your conversions and revenues. Here are some other aspects our CRM provides:

  • When clients are not clicking into your quotes, it means there was no interaction to view the homes. This should trigger a phone call. Our system tracks whether your quote was delivered to the guest
  • With the beauty of chat technology, you can create triggers in our system to let you know that it is time to engage with the client. If they have been looking at the home for over a minute, you will be alerted and you can touch base with the prospective guest!

Companies with the power to control all of these areas in lead management tend to be the most successful property management companies in their specific areas. Call today to learn more about our Lead Management and CRM system, and we will help you become one of these successful management companies!
