iGMS’s booking processing is effortless and straightforward. Every booking that hits your properties from OTAs has a reservation card in which the guest’s contact information is listed. 

iGMS automates your payment processing, and you can also make refunds quickly. You can use the pre-set email templates for each property or create new ones manually and easily use them for communication. Your check-in instructions will also be sent out in one of the emails.

Automata in Tokeet has been developed to provide a certain amount of automation. It automates activities from check-in to check-out.

You get a workflow of tasks organised by Automata to provide a list of all the services needed for a reservation received. Check Automata here.

Tokeet uses Signature, a document management tool, to facilitate getting guests’ signatures. With Signature, you can send the contract to the guests and get notified when the document is signed.

iGMS offers native integrations with Airbnb, Vrbo, and Booking.com, and it offers iCal support for various OTAs.

Getting connected to Airbnb, HomeAway, and Vrbo, you can sync your availability, occupancy, pricing, and messaging with your iGMS account and manage them from your multi-calendar within the system. Regarding the rest of the channels, you can only import/export your tasks and availability using the iCal connection, which requires your supervision as it takes some time for it to get updated each time a change is made.

Tokeet has two types of connection for channels: API (Airbnb, Booking.com and Expedia) and iCal.

N.B. Changes in availability are instantly sent to your connected channels. However, rates always need to be pushed by using the push rate option.

Also, note that Tokeet will not import manual blocks from your API channels. In order to account for them, you will need to create Hold Events on your Tokeet calendar.

iGMS generates mid-stay housekeeping and check-out housekeeping tasks automatically from the system upon every entry/check-out.

Your iGMS multi-calendar will provide you with three types of functions differentiated with three different colours: 

  • Red tasks — assigned cleaning visits are indicated by a © in the multi-calendar, and unassigned ones have a silhouette of a person. Cleaning visits are automatically created upon check-out of each reservation. It is not possible to have more than one cleaning visit per day.
  • Purple tasks — short visits, inspections or handyman appointments. The number of tasks per day is not limited.
  • Green tasks with a check mark — completed cleaning visits and tasks.

An iGMS account holder can set up Access and Permissions in each team member’s account in the Team & Members section.

Tokeet suggests using other cleaning services’ apps in conjunction with Tokeet.

iGMS sends check-in instructions to guests via a set of ready-made email templates for each property. You can also create new templates for each booking, message them from the unified inbox, welcome them, and provide them with the necessary information for each check-in.

Tokeet’s Automata allows you to create triggers. You can automate your guest communications with Automata triggers. By setting specific trigger conditions, you can automate the process of booking, payment, check-in, and check-out.

  1. iGMS does not have a booking engine yet, but it is on their roadmap. 
  2. There is no way to connect your website to your iGMS account. However, you can create each direct booking manually in iGMS and automate your communications and housekeeping afterwards.

iGMS offers a tool for times when a guest wants to stay longer in your properties, which is editing the booking without going to your Airbnb account to make changes to the booking details. The property, the price, the number of guests, the dates, and the number of nights can be altered from inside the reservation card.

  • Add your longer-term listings to Airbnb’s Monthly Stay programme along with other leading mid-term booking channels.
  • Filter reports by the length of stay to tag extended stays within the Guesty admin to automate customised communication.

In Tokeet, you can link different rooms of a rental together and rent them as a whole.

  • iGMS’s hosts and their teams can view structured information about the booking in reservation cards, such as the property, dates, guests, and the reservation cost.
  • You can set up how the check-in will take place. A concierge can be assigned or you can also select self check-in for the task.
  • Hosts can also add instructions and assign tasks to the team member related to cleaning or check-out.
  • There are specific pre-set email templates for check-in instructions for each property, which are sent out automatically to your guests from Airbnb, HomeAway, and Vrbo.

You can share your Guest Portal with guests through Tokeet by either including a link in Enquiry Actions or sending it within a message template.

In case you have sold add-ons to your guests, you can make a single invoice with multiple items for them.

iGMS allows you to view the guest profile on the platform. The guest profile contains information about the guest, such as reservation code, contact details, their profile on Airbnb, government ID, work email, social accounts, selfies and more.

You can easily navigate to the reviews and recommendations that the guest has received. If you click on the guest’s photo, you will have the guest’s Airbnb verification information displayed. This allows Airbnb hosts to screen guests instantly via the software. 

From the reservation card, hosts can message the guests or open the itinerary.

Tokeet saves the contact details of all the enquiries in the CRM within your Tokeet account. You can also add to this database or update it.

  • Sends the fixers notifications on their mobile phones via text messaging when the task is created automatically from the system or manually by another user of iGMS. They will also receive another message as a reminder the evening before.
  • Creates a daily schedule for each staff of yours for the following day in order to avoid missing things.

Guesty vs Tokeet: Which Property Management System to Choose?

Guesty is one of the most popular PMS providers in the vacation rental industry. It is an established brand with many branches all around the world. Guesty has a different pricing strategy compared to most of its competitors. The pricing model is commission-based, which means you will be charged on the bookings made through the software. This naturally increases the amount of commission you have to pay to Guesty while managing and scaling your short-term rental business. There are also other charges such as the initial set-up fee. However, Guesty is famous for having one of the most user-friendly platforms in the industry. 

Tokeet is a Vacation Rental Management Software offering tools for channel management, rental automation, owner management, and more. If you are looking for a cheaper option, then Tokeet is the right one for you. However, you should always bear in mind that most of the time you need to compensate for the low price you pay. Unresponsive support and weak technical help are pressing issues to seriously think about. Tokeet initially provides you with some basic functionalities found in most PMSes. However, to get your hands on more advanced features, you should pay for its supplementary schemes like Automata.
