😨 Avoid risky reservations [New Autohost Integration]

By November 20, 2020 November 23rd, 2020 No Comments

Do you screen vacation rental guests?

Screening for risky reservations shouldn’t be difficult. Autohost simplifies this process by scanning and ranking every reservation. We are very excited to introduce you to Autohost, our new Integration Zone partner.

Autohost scans, inspects and ranks every reservation to flag risks. From enquiry to check-in, Autohost continually analyzes reservation changes and notifies the manager or operations team with actions to take in order to reduce your risk and avoid parties, fraud, chargebacks, crime, and potential damage to your business.

This integration, as we see more and more COVID-related parties, is more important than ever. Specifically, the Autohost integration gives managers:

📢 RISK ASSESSMENT: Autohost provides you and your team with a risk assessment for the guest, so you can remove the guesswork from screening.

☝ DIGITAL FINGERPRINT: Every guest in the Autohost ecosystem is digitally identified to make sure they only have a single reservation at a time. Autohost uses artificial intelligence and machine learning for validation.

👨‍👨‍👦‍👦 GUEST INFORMATION VALIDATION: Guests sometimes don’t provide all of the information required. Autohost makes sure to ask them and validate the missing pieces.

🕵️‍♂️ CONTINUOUS MONITORING: Autohost scans every reservation across all platforms from inquiry to a confirmed booking.

💻 SOCIAL MEDIA VALIDATION: Autohost checks the guest against all social media platforms to make sure they’re real and have a presence, letting your team know if they flag anything abnormal.

…and so much more!
