I know there are so many. Curious to know what you all use and why?

We own two vacation rentals in Kissemmee, FL. Honestly, if you're handling your own bookings and have an outside company handle your cleaning and maintenance, most automation software has way too many "bells and whistles" than you'll ever need. We decided against purchasing it.

Looking at adding YourPorterApp as well, they have some bugs to work out and if they add a few more services, could be a great go to resource.

I own 3 vacation rental properties and acquiring a fourth. I have a property manager currently running them but considering doing it myself. I have used Lodgify, but found it far too clunky and they never smoothed out their portals to VRBO and Airbnb. 

considering software like myvr , or smoobu, or some others, but would like advice from people that have used them.

I have two PM companies I own - one of them is a larger company with hundreds of units where we need robust accounting capabilities - so we use Escapia.

My other company, we only have 60-70 units - and we use Guesty -as it's out of box and easier for the reservation agents to respond to Airbnb messages throughout one single interface. But it lacks an accounting module - so it creates a lot of work on myself and the bookkeeper every month...

Some of the key features to look for when looking to transition to automated bookkeeping are:

  • Automated data entry, billing, validation, calculations and other mundane administrative work.
  • Reduced human error (through e.g. OCR data entry)
  • Analysis of a given set of data
  • Detecting trends and patterns in accounting data
  • Real time data updation and calculation (clients don’t have to wait till the month’s end to see their finances)

One of the very first companies to utilize AI in their bookkeeping was smacc. The use of automated bookkeeping has increased as more and more businesses look to expand and automate the most time-consuming processes.
