Meet our New Partner Breezeway! Interview with CEO Jeremy Gall
There are so many variables to consider in property management – unique properties, unpredictable scheduling, multiple locations, and frequent service requests – short-term operators often struggle coordinating operations. Yet operations have a meaningful impact on a company’s brand, and managers who don’t build strong housekeeping and maintenance programs can find themselves exposed to unprepared units, disgruntled guests, and owner issues.
Solving this problem for our customers and prospects is very important to us, which is why we’re thrilled to announce our partnership with Breezeway! Breezeway is an operations and services platform that helps hospitality operators automate cleans, inspections, and maintenance repairs, making it easy for managers to deliver the best experience to guests and owners.
We had the pleasure of interviewing Breezeway’s Founder & CEO, Jeremy Gall, to learn more about one of the fastest growing software companies in the ecosystem.
Avantio: Tell us about Breezeway’s story in the vacation rental sector?
Jeremy: Prior to Breezeway, I founded a company called FlipKey.com, and grew it into one of the leading vacation rental listing and review sites (before TripAdvisor’s acquisition in 2013). In working with thousands of managers I saw that guests were starting to demand higher quality property conditions, branded experiences, and more concierge offerings. This trend really excited me, and I was convinced it would shape the future of property management. It was with this thesis that Breezeway was born, and we’ve been on a mission to power the future of property care and service ever since.
Avantio: Why is it so important for vacation rental managers to have strong housekeeping and maintenance programs?
Jeremy:Today’s travelers expect five-star hospitality experiences, leaving very little room for error. Ensuring quality properties and concierge service for your guests requires managers to dial in their property care programs. Managers who operate the ‘old-school’ way are likely manually scheduling jobs from reservation reports, using paper checklists to perform quality assurance, and communicating issues and statuses through disorganized text and email threads. These work-arounds make it near impossible to avoid missed cleans and maintenance tasks, which inevitably lead to guest complaints and negative reviews. In an age where brand has never been more important, managers need to put their best foot forward to maximize the guest experience.
