The client wanted to setup a platform, Niido, which can allow the residents to rent out their properties on Airbnb. The proposed platform will be tightly integrated with the Airbnb and should allow the residents to list their properties on Airbnb via the platform. The platform will also allow the hosts to easily manage the details of their property. The main goal of the platform is to allow the hosts to get detailed insights about their revenue from the property.
Project Type:Website, Mobile App and Backend
Technologies:Android, iOS, PHP (Yii2 Framework)
The primary challenge of the project was the integration with Airbnb. Apart from the integration, the project included a number of interfaces like the mobile app and website for the hosts and backend for the Niido. The client also wanted to offer some additional services to the guests so they wanted to have add-on features like home cleaning, key-less entry, events management and ability to post other curated content.
Experts at E2logy quickly understood the whole business concept and designed a fully scalable architecture for the system that not only met the current requirements but also able to support the expected growth of the business over the years. The platform, Niido was built as a property management system where property owner and property MasterHosts list their property on Airbnb and a guest can book a unit over Airbnb and a MasterHosts can able to chat with a host, check monthly, weekly and yearly revenue with help of charts, post a review about a guest, manage events and much more using system.
A MasterHost can sync a unit(s) of a property with the help of Airbnb and also modify details abot a unit like floor plan, number of bedrooms etc. And after updating details a MasterHost can publish their listings and if all the information are valid then a guest can book a listing over Airbnb.
Some useful tools, like video-wall, will be useful for a property management to overview all their earning on a single screen and slideshow to images or videos on big screen.
The platform, Nidoo, allowed the residents to earn extra income when they list and rent their space on Airbnb and their guests enjoy a hotel alternative that feels like home. Niido made the process seamless and secure with advanced technology and services like on-site MasterHosts™, home cleaning, keyless entry, five-star amenities, and curated weekly events such as wellness classes, social gatherings and Airbnb Experiences.
The Niido Mobile app allows the residents to sync with their Airbnb calendar, check earnings YTD, and see future bookings. On top of that, they can reserve amenities, pay rent, and more. They can also opt-in for weekly or monthly cleaning service provided by Niido.
