5 Tips for Getting Ready for the Start of the Season with LSI Tools
Spring is officially in full swing, and for many vacation rental companies, this means that the season is about to start in earnest. Many vacation destinations consider Easter week and the month of May as the beginning of their busy summer season, and there’s precious time left to ensure that everything is in order to welcome your first wave of welcome guests.
With that being said, there are steps you can take now to ensure that when your guests start to arrive, you’re ready to greet them and ensure they have a great vacation! Here are a few tips for making the most out of your LSI Tools, while ensuring you are prepared for the buy weeks and months ahead.
Check your Schedule Pro Settings and Rules
Schedule pro is one of our most customizable tools, and as your cleaners and inspectors’ workload increases, it’s a good time to ensure that all of your Schedule Pro operations are in check. Review cleaner contact information and availability for accuracy, double check your cleaning fees for payroll, and review your rules to ensure all situations are accounted for in the busy months to come.
Re-familiarize Your Team with the Disaster Tool
Hurricane seaoson starts June 1, but as the summertime starts to heat up, you likely won’t have time to train and prepare for a potential storm or other disaster that can affect your properties, and your vacation rental business. So take a little time to train on the Disaster Recovery Tool now, to ensure that if there is an emergency, everyone on your team will be well prepared. The Disaster Tool saves hours of time when you need it the most, and best of all, this tool is FREE for all LSI clients!
Set up Automatic Reporting
As your vacation rental managers tend to more imminent issues that naturally accompany a busy summer season, they may not have time to review essential data, such as bookings, revenue, and property performance. But Rental Insight can help! Make sure you set up automated emails to receive daily, weekly, and monthly snapshot reports so you can stay on top of your company’s performance automatically, without detailed and time-consuming data searchers.
Double Check your ResMail Pro Letters, and Your Attachments
This is also a great time to review the content of your ResMail Pro letters to ensure that everything is up to date for the 2019 season. While you’re reviewing the content of your ResMail Pro letters, you may also want to double check any attachments that are included in your guest communications as well. Fliers for trip insurance, community information, or other pertinent docs may need to be updated to reflect any changes for 2019.
