Reduce the dreaded housekeeper "no show"

2019-10-14

Being able to look online and see if they have signed into the job is a relief if it is a short changeover and a new guest will be arriving later that day.

Pros

The integration with booking software like Airbnb, Homeaway and Booking.com

Cons

Modules to train staff would be helpful

Great Product!

2018-01-10

Pros

Properly helps us manage an entire staff of cleaning professionals for our VR management company, and the photo QA is an absolute lifesaver.

Cons

Adding real-time visible location services, smart routing, whitelabelled reports, and a few other features would make this top notch :)

We love Properly for our vacation rental management

2019-02-11

We are able to provide proof to the booking channel and guest.

Pros

We have properties all over the world and Properly provides us a way to manage the listings remotely giving us "eyes" to know that the cleaning staff is doing their job.

Cons

It would be a nice feature add to possibly order supplies or small decor items if they are low on inventory or broken through the app.

Properly Has Potential

2019-05-12

Overall, Properly has been a good solution for our cleaners but there is much room for improvement.

Pros

They love that they can see their calendars in advance and easily enter in problems through the app.

Cons

It tends to lag quite a bit and poses some problems scheduling last minute bookings with our cleaners.

Properly is a lifesaver for remote property managers

2019-07-16

I love the feature if the cleaner needs to report something wrong.

Pros

The ease of use in getting your account set up. It was nice to have template checklists to start from and then customize as needed for my specific properties.

Cons

It was harder to find and access the available cleaners network from the app.

Great help to schedule and maintain management company

2018-07-07

Pros

Having the calendar automatically sync means we won't miss cleans.

Cons

Getting large enough to warrant this type of software means that there is so much data input needed before starting. This took a long time (weeks).

Response from Properly


Hi Colin. Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. Good news! Actually we do have time stamps of job start and finish times. When your cleaner arrives and starts the job in the app, your job summary will reflect their start time. You can also set your account to be notified by email or SMS when they start. If they have their location services turned on, you will also see that they are in the correct location. Similarly, when they finish the job, you¿ll know and have a record of the time. Now, regarding translation, more good news. Properly does use Google Translate! The cleaner can tap ¿translate¿ in the app to translate your instructions to the language of their choice. The Properly app supports 8 languages so static app instructions will reflect the language the user¿s phone is set to. Lastly, we will be adding payments in the future. Stay tuned for that. Find us on chat support if you have any questions. Thank you again. Sincerely - The Properly Team

Nice app, but expensive and lacking.

2018-01-19

Pros

Intuitive and clean interface. App and website both work great.

Cons

If it was cheaper it might be worth it, but as it turns out my hosting platform already offers a similar feature.

Makes airbnb flips super-easy

2019-10-15

Pros

Connects me with cleaners, easy to use, takes the complexity away from running an airbnb

Cons

Need to arrange payment outside, can't set a template for a job (I have to set every parameter, such as length of cleaning, price offered, time) manually every time.

organizes my daily schedule

Pros

One location to see daily activity regardless of platform.

Cons

Wish it would warn me when I am duplicating the property. (I do it often) Would like to have a link to the guest directly on Properly.

First time set up

2018-11-26

With that, we've also had some illegal activity take place one or twice.

Pros

Also, the automatic reminder of guest check in/out to have me schedule a cleaning is very nice.

Cons

The initial set up was a little wonky. I set up from my phone initially, and when we tested the set up, the icons were all shifted slightly to the right. I was able to correct this through the website.

2018-01-10

Pros

It's very nice to have any and all issues reported, and any and all pictures of the homes in one space.

Cons

I wish that we could re-open a job when something additional is found before the cleaner/ inspector leaves.

Hi Amy! Thank you for completing a review. Your cleaners and inspectors should definitely use the Report a Problem feature to document issues as they are discovered during a job. Then you will know if any last minute details need to be tended to. Let support know if you don't know where to find this! All the best - the Properly Team.

Huge time saver!

2018-07-25

Saved time managing the cleaners for my properties.

Pros

Let's you see all of your AirBnb cleanings in one place. Saves time by having cleaners follow interactive cleaning guides during cleanings.

Cons

Would be nice to have an auto unschedule a cleaner so you don't have to go into the calendar to cancel.

Has been a game-changer for cleaning management!

2018-01-25

Pros

To date I have only used the software for the basic function of creating electronic visual checklists for short-term accommodation properties, and scheduling contracted cleaner.

Cons

Some issues with photo boundaries and sensitivity of icons, can make new checklists time-consuming to create. Market place in my city (Perth, Australia) is limited. I believe the app developers should be out marketing this tool to cleaners / subcontractors, not relying on property managers to bring their chosen cleaners onboard
