Focus on growing your business and let HireAway’s team of dedicated guest reservation agents help you manage your day-to-day operations. We have expertise in booking software solutions.
- Faster to respond means faster to book
- This industry has high negative attrition in reservation and guest management. Most companies only hire one or two people who can barely keep up because the cost of a domestic servicing person is not economical. When that person leaves your whole business is in jeopardy. It’s hard to find employees and then have to retrain in the system. With managed service you never have to worry about this risk AND you have far more coverage at a fraction of the cost.
- Stop doing this to yourself! Many owners and manager are managing their own platform and dealing with reservations and guest communications for all hours of the day and night with no rest on weekends.
- Increased guest servicing means great reviews and return visitors. Reviews are everything in this business. Having guest services agents available to manage reservations and guest issues means high marks for communications, introductions, and the personal guest experience.
