Thank you for your interest in Breezeway. We're excited to tell you more about our property care and operations software, and have listed answers to the most frequently asked questions below. Feel free to contact us with any questions, or submit this form for a customized product demo.
What are Property Operations?
Property operations are the workflows and processes used to coordinate, communicate and verify detailed work to ensure high-quality property care and guest experiences. This includes scheduling internal staff and service partners, tracking property details and events, coordination work across multiple locations and unique properties, and monitoring compliance with internal service standards.
Why are Property Operations so Important Today?
Property operations have always been the backbone of maintaining high-quality accommodations. Guest expectations for the physical space (presentation, cleanliness, amenities, etc.) have increased, adding to the existing operational burden of hospitality providers. In fact, 37% of vacation rental managers believe cleaning and operations will be the most important aspects of their business over the next year. Now more than ever, the pandemic has underscored the need for highly detailed, quality-assured, and controlled property operations that can be validated and shared with clients.
What Does Breezeway Do?
Breezeway is the leading property care and operations platform for coordinating, communicating, and verifying detailed work all while ensuring the best guest experience is delivered. Breezeway's software and mobile apps have facilitated more than 4M property tasks across 100+ million square feet of property, and have help hundreds of short-term rental operators, long-term residential managers, service providers, and other hospitality professionals meet detailed service standards. Breezeway was started in 2017 by Jeremy Gall (who previously founded FlipKey and sold to TripAdvisor), with the mission to create the necessary digital tools to power the future of property care and services.
How Is Breezeway Different than My Traditional PMS System?
Most PMS softwares focus on the front-of-house aspects of property management like facilitating bookings and reservations, managing property listings, website marketing, and accounting. While these are all very important aspects of a successful vacation rental business, back of house operations are often neglected. As the job of a vacation rental manager continues to shift from valuing the transaction (marketing and facilitating the rental booking) to emphasizing the experience (offering services and crafting the perfect vacation), managers are adopting purpose-built tools outside of their PMS system to coordinate and manage their property care and operations. Focusing solely on property operations enables Breezeway to offer solutions like intelligent task automation and remote scheduling coordination, SMS guest messaging, dynamic quality assurance tools and mobile checklists, automated 'gap night' messaging, comprehensive owner reporting, and robust asset management and preventative maintenance programs.
Does Breezeway Integrate with My PMS System?
Yes, we integrate with over 30 of the industry's leading property management software systems as well as smart locks and IoT devices. Our PMS integrations automatically sync your property details and reservation data in real-time, and schedules the activity workflow that is needed at each property. You can filter this schedule by reservation, property type, customized tags, and more, which makes it easy for you to coordinate cleaning, inspections, and maintenance.
What Products Does Breezeway Offer?
We offer three distinct product types: our property operations platform, our SMS guest messaging tools, and our safety and compliance programs. While each product can be purchased and used separately, leveraging these products together can drive additional efficiencies across your operations.
