What's New With the Virtual Concierge Service

Multiple Tags:

We’re happy to announce the next set of enhancements to the Virtual Concierge Service for your vacation rental(s). You can now:
Apply the same tag to multiple content items
Apply more than one tag to a single content item

A Quick Refresher on Tags:

Guests can find the content they are interested in by using the voice menu. This is useful, but it is also important for guests to ask for information directly, with a simple question. Tags make it possible for guests to ask for information directly. They also include built-in synonyms, so that different ways of guests asking the same thing are recognized. Use tags wherever you can.

Mobile Concierge:

We have built a simplified way for guests to access the Virtual Concierge on their phone. Using Google Assistant either natively on an Android or with the app on iPhone, guests can now say “Use the Mobile Concierge”. They will be prompted for the passcode to your property, and have immediate access to your custom content. We have removed the need for guests to login prior to accessing the concierge.

Yelp Integration:

With this new Yelp integration, your content will be delivered and then the guest will be asked if they would like the address, phone number or business hours for that place of business. This information will be automatically provided, there is no need for you to specify any of those three things in your content. Any of your content items that have been connected to Yelp will deliver this capability. Should this business information change, it will be automatically updated.

Smart Home Systems For Sale:

With Alexa or Google Home in your vacation rental, you may have considered how else to make effective use of technology at your property. We've been working on something that can help - smart home systems that are easy. We have built pre-programmed kits setup specifically for vacation properties and have them for sale in our online store.

Multiple Property Management:

You asked and we listened. You can now set up one property with all of your custom content and automatically copy it to all of your other properties, without the need to retype anything.

Improve Your Guest’s Experience using Smart Home Technology

Virtual Concierge now offers a pre-programmed Smart Home kit for your vacation rental

It is the perfect addition to the Concierge Service. In addition to your guests learning about your house and the nearby area with the Virtual Concierge, they can also use your Alexa or Google Home to control smart home devices in the house, and you can use it to make sure the house is comfortable and inviting when your guests arrive. Our kits include a smart home hub, light switches, water leak sensors, and optionally you can add a keyless dead bolt lock.
The system is pre-programmed specifically for simplified management of your short-term rental property. It will help deliver an outstanding first impression to your guests by providing a comfortable and well lit house when they arrive. Also enjoy the piece-of-mind knowing that you can control your vacation house remotely and get notifications when conditions change. You can prepare your house for occupancy by simply entering an event in your Google or iCal calendar and leave the rest to automation.
