We purchased a GoPro (as a gift, of course ), and sent it to a few clients with a list of questions. In return, we asked that they share their honest opinion of the PointCentral system, the implementation and the benefits they are seeing.
Our goal was to demonstrate that PointCentral is easy AND effective.
“It’s more secure than having keys out there in different hands.”
“You have a history of who goes in and out of these homes.”
We’ll kick it off with Sun Palace Vacations in sunny Ft. Meyers, FL.
Sun Palace implemented keyless access, HVAC energy management and pool heat control across their full inventory in December 2013.
“PointCentral had a true spirit of partnership.”
“It was a very positive conversion.”
Winter Park Lodging was in a jam last November because a WiFi smart home system they tried to install wasn’t living up to expectations, and their insanely busy Thanksgiving rush was bearing down on them.
PointCentral and Winter Park connected at the National VRMA show, and we were able to have them fully installed across 70 properties in 3 days. 3 days!
It was a great experience, and we continue to grow a strong partnership with Sarah Bradford (VRM owner) and her team…including Smart Home Seminars.
As a result, we asked Sarah to join us on our GoPro testimonial journey, and she gladly accepted. Muchas gracias Sarah!
Here’s what Sarah Bradford from Winter Park Lodging Company had to say…
“[Homeowner] comfort level has improved dramatically.”
“We are leaps and bounds beyond our old system.”
Bennington Properties has been in business since 1998 and manages almost 200 vacation rental homes. For years, they offered their guests the convenience of direct-to-house check-in through their “secure” (or not so secure :)) lockbox system.
Bennington recognized the limitations and risks of this lockbox system and knew a change was needed. They researched all of the “keyless” solutions and moved quickly once they found the PointCentral solution.
In the middle of a cold-snap in the winter of 2014 (think -17 degrees!) they embarked on the installation of PointCentral across their full inventory of homes.
Despite the rough conditions, the PointCentral installation team had Bennington fully installed, trained and operational in 8 days!
Since the conversion, Owner/CEO Robert Bennington has been one of the most vocal supporters of PointCentral and the power the system holds for vacation rental managers.
During a recent smart home seminar hosted at Benningtong, Robert made the simple but profound statement that…
“[T]he PointCentral system pays for itself.”
Sunriver Resort – Bend, OR
“We had a huge security problem with keys out and floating around and missing keys.”
“The WiFi doesn’t always work. Cellular seems to be up all the time.”
Sunriver was the very first VRM to leverage the power of smart home control for vacation rental management.
Of course we need our “high school sweetheart” to offer a GoPro testimonial!
