PointCentral Integrates with Hostfully for Seamless, Contact-Free Access to Vacation Rentals

PointCentral has announced a new integration with Hostfully, an end-to-end property management platform that improves keyless access and smart property automation management.

PointCentral has announced a new integration with Hostfully, an end-to-end property management platform that improves keyless access and smart property automation management. Property managers use PointCentral’s cloud-based property automation platform to remotely monitor and control access and energy use at their connected rental properties. Now, property managers can offer contactless check-in to incoming guests through an automated data transfer between PointCentral and Hostfully that creates and sends smart lock access codes to guests based on reservation dates.

The seamless connection gives property managers single-point access to both platforms and provides a safer, more convenient rental experience for everyone.

“We are proud to welcome Hostfully into our family of integrated property management platforms,” said Sean Miller, president of PointCentral. “This is another important step in our platform evolution that delivers additional value to our existing customers and creates opportunities to expand our customer base. With heightened awareness of health concerns and efforts to limit interactions with people, it’s important that property managers have access to our digital key access solution directly within any vacation property management platform they use.”

A comprehensive property management platform that includes property automation can help property managers streamline their operations, improve security and maximize incomes. Statistics from Entrata and on iPropertyManagement.com suggest that most vacation rentals are booked online and that renters are willing to pay more for smart-enabled properties.

“At Hostfully, we are constantly improving our Property Management Platform (PMP) to help vacation rental owners optimize operations and revenue," said David Jacoby, Hostfully's president and co-founder. "By adding PointCentral as an integration partner, we are able to offer our managers a seamless keyless access system, which not only improves the guest experience, but reduces the need for expensive and repetitive tasks by the managers and their staff.”
