VRScheduler overview

What is VRScheduler?

VRScheduler is a vacation rental and housekeeping management software which enables property managers, cleaning companies, hot tub service companies, and vacation rental owners to streamline employee and task scheduling, using a drag-and-drop scheduling calendar with workload balancing and color-coded regions. Designed to automate vacation rental operations, VRScheduler supports booking auto-import, task generation, completion notifications, reports, alerts, and checklists.

VRScheduler organizes all vacation rental data, giving users central access to information on tasks, employees, vendors, issues and property workflow. The activity dashboard shows users their most important tasks at-glance, while the master calendar allows users to view all rental activity, from across all of their properties. VRScheduler’s calendar ensures users know which tasks are scheduled, who is assigned to each task, and when they are completed. The calendar also records notes on property damage, maintenance, booking dates, and more.

Mobile-friendly employee dashboards allow staff to keep notes and checklists, as well as record any damage, maintenance, or lost and found items from any mobile device. Issue tracking technology and task creation rules enable users to automate issue management and task management activity. With task creation rules, users can automate tasks for situations such as arrival cleaning, 6 month deep cleans, inventory checks, and more. iCAL imports allow users to import bookings directly from booking software including Airbnb, HomeAway and LiveRez.

Excellent software at a fantastic price

Used daily for 6-12 months

Review Source: Capterra

We couldn't be happier. VRScheduler does everything we need it to at a fraction of the cost of other software providers. It has excellent reporting functionality, great support and is complete in what it covers. Basically, it saves our business so much time, plus we have faith that it will always work properly. We would recommend this product to anyone.

Pros
The ease of scheduling. You can easily see your day or week ahead, and allocate jobs to cleaners efficiently.

Cons
As with all cleaning software, it is a little arduous setting up checklists across multiple individual listings, but I can't see any workaround for that.

Response from VRScheduler


Dear David,

First of all thank you so much for choosing VRScheduler and for posting such a positive review. The fact that you say it does everything that you need, the scheduling is easy and that the reporting functionality is excellent means so much to us.

We are constantly reviewing all functions in order to make improvements where possible so we will take your feedback about the checklists on board.

Your recommendation is also highly appreciated and we hope that you will tell more of your colleagues in the industry about us.

Kind regards

Makes our business run smoothly

This is just an overall solid software that does everything we need to keep operations and task scheduling from getting out of control. We couldn't run our business without it.

Pros
There are too many positives to list them all: The biggest thing that stands our for us is the fantastic customer service and onboarding training/support. The experience working with the VR Scheduler team has been the best software experience we have had. Automated scheduling of cleaning and maintenance that is smart enough to move tasks when reservations come in. Drag/drop to move a scheduled task, but smart enough not to allow any missed cleanings. Ability to assign tasks to specific employees and to see the approximate time the jobs will take. Employee start/stop on jobs for tracking payroll as well as how long a job takes. Piece pay tracking for non-hourly employees Linen packing lists Ability to assign check lists to tasks and for employees to report issues with photos that can then be made into tasks and assigned for completion. Ability to assign multiple employees or teams to the same tasks.

Cons
The learning curve would be very steep if you attempted to use VR Scheduler without any onboarding training. It could be a little more user friendly out of the box, but honestly, if you do the training, it's pretty easy to catch on, and the people at VR Scheduler are always there to help - always willing to do more training.

I have a good experience with this software thus far and training on this software is easy to accomplish as long as you have detailed notes.

Pros
I like this software because currently the property that we service has different Islands and it is easy to decipher through which hoe is on what island.

Cons
The fact that it is not as user friendly, however once in the system and you find your flow it becomes easier to use.

Wonderful! Staff extremely patient and helpful.

Pros
I am very glad that we found this. I had initially chosen a more expensive program mainly due to the looks visually. VR scheduler is a little outdated looking in my opinion, however, once I got past that to get to the features it was everything we were looking for. We are a hybrid company, somewhere in between a cleaning company and a vacation rental manager. We needed a lot of features, minus the reservation/booking features that compromise most other software programs. We were specifically interested in creating staff checklists. It took a little tweaking, but we got it perfect. [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] taught me how to change the font size (for us older folks using our phones), bold words, etc. We were able to make changes to suit our needs. [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] were wonderful (and VERY patient) in helping us get started and set up. I would very highly recommend for features. I still wish the look was a little more modern but for the price this is truly wonderful. It has saved soooo much time in scheduling and the pen and paper system that we had. Very happy that I chose this software.

Cons
Some other programs were more modern looking and a little easier to learn initially

Game Changer!

Review Source: Capterra

VRScheduler has be been a game changer for my department. We were dealing with inefficiencies, excessive man hours scheduling and keeping track of all the operations within the department, A LOT of human error. All of these issues have been eliminated and have improved our efficiency, consistency and overall accountability. [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] and team have been very receptive to making changes/improvements to the software that have been very beneficial for my department. I highly recommend VRScheduler, so sad it took me so long to make this change!

Pros
Integration was super easy!! Set up was time consuming but not difficult! Auto- generates and pulls in real time from Res Software. Auto Assigns all staff requiring minimal adjustment. Ability to see schedule days, weeks, months in advance. Easy adjustment for call off's , cancellations. Less time & energy required to manage 40 field staff and 200 homes.

Cons
I would like to see some improvement in the notifications. The Issues section streamlined. It is not very user friendly, time exhaustive and duplicate issues. I'd like to someday see a communication aspect-Direct Messaging to field staff and entire team.
