1 year review - from an American PM with 30 properties

5.0 11 months ago

Comments: Onboarding was white gloved by an advanced team that cared greatly and had much experience. Every time I reach out for a minor or major support need , I always come away with a warm feeling. I've read an interesting guide relative to how we think guests should rate their experience : "5 stars = had a wonderful stay and made great memories and would recommend. Nothing is perfect". 1 star = property manager should be in jail". I give Avantio 5 stars.

Pros:

~Exemplary customer service - instant chat and regular updates on cases - always delivered with sincere care. ~The price point relative to the US commission model < bleh! Seriously - go see for yourself. ~ Although Avantio one year ago sold to a conglomerate from Ireland, no dear staff has departed in fact more great talent has joined. I feel strongly that further strong improvements will push through.

Cons:

There are EU > US voids in some channel connections, POS and user and end user interfacing. Some are minor, others are not. I've done a great deal of pressing on this - and seen results. Would behoove org to have an American consulted on engineering and marketing team. Example 1: "cabin" was mapped to "chalet" on OTA - and no easy fix. Ex 2: contact database and POS field said "region" and not "state" < no bother to us, but it sure confused a great many of our guests at checkout. This is now fixed. Ex 3: "Dear sir or madam" in automated guest emails. Not a phrase used in ordinary American English. Fixed. But there are more areas that need oversight for seamless ordinary American workflow. I'll end this subject by reiterating that they care to get this right and are methodically making updates. Wasn't a deal breaker before I started with Avantio one year and and it's only improved.

Great product and great support!

5.0 12 months ago

Comments: Great. Don't hesitate with your decision making anymore. AVANTIO will exceed your expectations....

Pros:

Really great software solution for our company. After using KIGO, which unfortunately was problematic from start to finish, I was dreading implementing another new product. But I was pleasantly after my colleague implemented it including the AVANTIO software within 1 month. AVANTIO was the best decision we've made in terms of software. There is just so many solutions to choose from and selecting the right one for your needs is very difficult. We made the right decision and couldn't be happier with them!

Cons:

the owner statements don't completely generate the way we won't them to without doing some minor re-jigging. This is probably due to the complex way we arrive out commission figure rather than the fault of AVANTIO.

Integrated applications, VRMS not suitable for all countries` fiscal needs

3.0 12 months ago

Comments: Property management fairly easy to do. We were not notified and found out through a meeting of different posibilities of integration with our own web site, rather than integrating a new, Avantio web site.Value for price is all in all good, but could be a lot more user friendly and applicable for using payment options for a variety of countries, like Croatia that has very strict laws.

Pros:

Full and correctly synchronized connection with many portals - minimum danger of overbooking. The integration was well organized, onboarding specialists available and very helpful, Avantio Academy very useful.

Cons:

Payment features missing for Croatia (strict laws demand certain aspects of payments to be perfectly executed).System upgrades/maintenance performed on Mondays, limits the use of Avantio when most needed after the weekend.Slow response - once clicked, takes several seconds for a new window to opet/pop up.No possibility to enter net prices of homeowner`s whose properties we manage - additioanl costs for software for issuing bills. Therefore, no way of creating financialy transparent documents from Avantio.

The endless search...!!

5.0 2 years ago

Comments: I have to say that having made the decision to switch software, and after looking at endless comparison sites and endless reviews, weighing up all the pros and cons, (as i am sure you are doing right now), i decided that as we are a company based in Spain, then a PMS from a company in Spain made sense and we went for Avantio. Truth be told, that has undoubtedly been one of my better decisions in recent times. There will be plenty of work to do once you make the switch, and a heck of lot of learning that only really begins once you turn it on, but in the long run, which is how i was looking at it, it seems to have been a very good decision. We have been using this software exclusively since September 2021, and i am still learning new things each and every week. There are still also a vast number of functions that i have yet to use/learn that i will be using for the first time in the coming months. Finally, a special mention must go to the team at Avantio, who really are there to make sure you know how to get the best out of the system and help you when you are unsure about something. From speaking with [SENSITIVE CONTENT] who helped us decide on the right package suitable to our business and answering any questions we had, to the many sessions of Onboarding training with [SENSITIVE CONTENT], website design and implementation with [SENSITIVE CONTENT], and finally the online support from [SENSITIVE CONTENT]. The team as a whole and after support really is first class and should rightly be commended.

Pros:

This really is a very comprehensive piece of software that allows, you, the rental manager/agent to keep on top of all the essential functions of your business. Areas of excellence, to mention a few, would be the automated payments/refunds, unified inbox, scheduled messages (aka "Harmony"), channel manager, and the semi-automated reporting to the Guardia Civil of guest information and to the Hacienda for Modelo 179.

Cons:

The least favourite thing about the software, is not actually the software itself, its in choosing the right time to switch software! I don´t think there is ever a perfect time, but if you are used to a fairly basic piece of software, be warned that switching to Avantio should be left to a time when you have a few months of reasonably "quiet" time to get to grips with everything.

I can't say enough great things!

5.0 9 months ago

Comments: I am onboarding and everything has been night and day compared to my last PMS. The thing makes the most difference is the level of support you have with Avantio, the team truly cares and is there to help things go smoothly and successfully.

Pros:

Extremely user-friendly this is not a complex PMS however it does it all!

Cons:

The only con that I can come up with is that I didn't fund them sooner!
