VANCOUVER, BC - Operto Guest Technologies, the award-winning Smart Stay system and purpose-built software for managing connected devices in guest accommodation, has announced an integration partnership with Direct, the property management system. The integration will ensure that Direct property management customers can easily access the Operto in-property automation software and solution for Smart Stays.
Operto - from the Italian word aperto; meaning to open - enables property managers to enhance their operations, making them more efficient and providing an elevated guest experience through a curated range of smart home technology. Operto's purpose-built software makes this technology meaningful in a commercial setting. The foundation of Operto's Smart Stay solution is keyless entry. According to recent research by Booking.com, 63% of guests want a keyless solution for their rental experience.
Direct provides a complete enterprise solution for vacation rental managers. From payment solutions, trust accounting, website templates, and automated email templates; the system allows for every size of vacation rental manager to succeed at scale.
“Direct has been building a really elegant and technology forward solution. There is no doubt that our shared integration will bring value to vacation rental managers big and small,” said Michael Driedger co-founder and CEO of Operto.
“Operto aligns with our mission to provide next-generation technology that is built to work at scale, and I'm extremely excited for the future of this integration," said Wes Smithe, CEO and co-founder of Direct. "Our platforms are innovative and powerful, and will stand the test of time for managers who wish to take their operations to the next level.”
Operto solves operational issues commonly faced by professional property managers. The flagship solution fully automates guest entry by programming unique entry codes for every reservation onto keypad locks. 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 include monitoring of noise, occupancy, and air quality. Energy savings are realized through intelligent thermostat control. Smart alerts and scheduling reduces turnover time and repetitive 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.
