Is Uplisting right for me?
This type of question usually ends with a salesy answer of, yes!, of course, Uplisting is great for you. However, at Uplisting we understand each property manager has a unique set of needs, lots of overlap, but a perfect solution for all types of properties, businesses and people don't exist.
Our philosophy is to be transparent. We don't have any hidden fees or tie you into a long-term contract. We also understand Uplisting is not perfect for everyone and we want you to make the best decision for you and your business.
Let's take a look at:
- Who uses Uplisting now
- Who we don't think Uplisting is a great fit for, right now
Who uses Uplisting now?
Our members are quite diverse, however, in a nutshell, we are focused on urban property managers with 10 to 300+ properties.
We’ve been relying on Uplisting since we started with just 5 properties, now growing to 250+ at AirManaged. We tried a number of similar products before settling on Uplisting. They listen to feedback and the user-friendly design gives us a hub to manage our properties. The team are great when we have a query.
The majority of our members have 20+ properties
However, we have many of members with fewer than 20 properties who look for a platform they can scale with. For example, we've grown together with one member in particular who went from 7 to 175+ properties in the past couple of years.
Our largest members have 300+ properties.
An all-in-one platform (for the most part!)
Our members want a Property and Channel Manager that does as much as possible under one platform.
🙅♀️You don't need a separate channel manager when using Uplisting. We are an official software partner of Airbnb, Booking.com and Homeaway/VRBO. This means no extra costs, nor any confusion.
The vast majority of our members manage properties on behalf of others
ie. they have owner clients. However, we have members with 20+ properties who don't have clients. Their business model is rental arbitrage, or they run a resort for example.
A lot of our members actively provide feedback, ideas and insight
We tend to work closely with our members (although not a requirement!). This feedback directly shapes our product. All members are invited to share their thoughts!
Who is Uplisting, not great for, right now?
These are general assumptions based on discussions we've had on our numerous demo's, calls and customer support over the past couple of years. For each example, we can also point to current members that do use Uplisting.
Reporting dashboards (eg. occupancy rates)
We don't have dashboards for analytics like occupancy rates, yet. We will provide a best in class dashboard in future.
One of our main goals is to allow you to access your data easily. To enable this we offer an API, Webhooks and a Zapier app. Our members have built their own dashboards on Airtable, Coda, Excel and more using Zapier (or their own webhook setups).
Not familiar with Zapier?
If you are looking to automate a lot of your business, and aren't yet using Zapier—take a look ASAP! We run the majority of our internal workflows through our Zapier app.
