Our client wanted to establish a platform that would allow residents to provide their properties as Airbnb rentals. The proposed platform will be tightly integrated with Airbnb and should allow residents to list their properties on Airbnb via the platform. Hosts will be able to easily manage information about their properties on the platform. The main goal of the platform is to allow hosts to get detailed insights about their revenue from the property.
The primary challenge of the project was the integration with Airbnb. Apart from the integration, the project included several interfaces like the mobile app and website for the hosts and backend for their website. 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 the 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 was also able to support the expected growth of the business over the years. The platform, was built as a property management system where property owners and property MasterHosts list their property on Airbnb and a guest can book a unit over Airbnb and a MasterHost can able to chat with a host, check monthly, weekly, and yearly revenue with the help of charts, post a review about a guest, manage events and much more using the system.
A master host can sync a unit(s) of a property with the help of Airbnb and also modify details about a unit like a floor plan, number of bedrooms, etc. And after updating details a MasterHost can publish their listings and if all the information is valid then a guest can book a listing over Airbnb.
Some useful tools, like video-wall, will be useful for property management to overview all their earnings on a single screen and slideshow images or videos on the big screen.
The platform, allowed 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. The platform 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 Mobile app allows 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 services provided by client.
