Integrate TIDY With Lodgify for Full Service Rental and Cleaning Management

September 29, 2023

If you are a vacation rental owner or manager, you know how important it is to keep your properties ready and clean for guests. However, managing the booking process can be challenging, especially if you have multiple rental properties to take care of. Additionally, scheduling reliable cleaning services that help you ensure the best possible experience for your visitors is no easy feat, yet of the utmost importance.

Luckily, integrating TIDY and Lodgify is a game-changer for rental businesses, helping you easily manage the entire rental and cleaning process. In this article, we'll discuss the many benefits of integrating TIDY and Lodgify, and show you how to do it in a few simple steps.

Benefits of Integrating TIDY and Lodgify

Both TIDY and Lodgify bring many benefits to rental property owners. TIDY is a cleaning management software that connects property managers with professional cleaners who can handle their rental cleaning needs. Lodgify is a property-management software that helps you create and manage your own vacation rental website, accept online bookings, and sync your calendars with other booking channels like Airbnb.

Integrating TIDY and Lodgify together is a game-changer, making a full-service rental management solution. With TIDY and Lodgify integrated, property managers can enjoy the following benefits:

Simplified Rental Cleaning Management

Keeping your rental properties clean for every stay is one of the most important steps in managing a rental business. However, maintaining regular, reliable vacation rental cleaning during the short turnover window between guest bookings is a challenge for business owners. That’s where TIDY comes in.

TIDY helps you find the best property management cleaning services in your area and book them with ease. With TIDY, you can easily schedule, track, and pay for your cleanings through our app or website. You can also customize your cleaning preferences, add special instructions, and communicate with your cleaners directly. TIDY’s platform connects you with next-day service providers for:

  • Regular cleaning
  • Pool cleaning
  • Carpet cleaning
  • Window washing
  • Lawn & garden care
  • Junk removal
  • Pest control
  • Pressure washing
  • Tree trimming
  • Inspections
  • Maintenance
  • Trash services

For any physical management your property needs, TIDY is here to help. It's the ultimate platform for ensuring your property is in tip-top shape before each new stay.

When integrated with TIDY, Lodgify’s software also helps to make property cleanings a breeze. Lodgify’s platform lets you manage your reservations, guests, payments, and reviews all from one dashboard. When connected to your TIDY account, you can integrate your cleaning services with your existing calendar, automatically scheduling cleanings after checkout.

The two platforms together also let you receive notifications when your cleaners start and finish their jobs — plus get photos of the cleaned property. This way, you can rest assured that your properties are always clean and ready for the next guest. This simplified, automated property management solution saves you time, money, and hassle, so you can focus on growing your business.

Increased Occupancy and Income

With traditional property management methods, owners have to leave a significant amount of time between bookings to get each stay ready. Now, the integration of TIDY and Lodgify helps property owners turn over their rentals as fast as possible.

With this reliable and consistent commercial cleaning service, you can reduce your turnaround time and offer more availability to your potential guests. This lets you boost your occupancy rate and maximize your income. Plus, you’ll save costs from having one or multiple long-term cleaning partners, increasing your potential revenue even more.

Knowing you can host as many guests as possible makes it easier to optimize your pricing strategy and adjust your rates based on demand, seasonality, and competition. Plus, the better cleaning — and increased amount of guests — means you will receive more and better reviews for your short-term rentals. These powerful tools can add a lot of value — literally — to your rental business.

Access to an Extremely Powerful Suite of Tools

Integrating TIDY and Lodgify also gives you access to an extremely powerful suite of tools that can help you grow your rental business even further.

For example, TIDY’s features let you manage your cleaners, monitor their performance, rate their work, and tip them accordingly. You can also use TIDY’s analytics to track your cleaning costs, frequency, duration, and quality to further optimize your cleaning strategy. TIDY also lets you message directly with cleaners to ensure clear communication and that they meet your needs.

Lodgify’s platform features tools for creating a stunning website for your rental business, accepting online bookings directly from your guests, and syncing your availability with other channels. You can also use Lodgify’s marketing tools to promote your website, generate more traffic, and increase your conversions.

Integrating TIDY and Lodgify lets you leverage the best of both platforms and take your rental business to the next level. The two platforms seamlessly integrate together to provide the ultimate solution for hosting multiple rental properties. They empower you to manage all the calendars, booking, cleaning, reviews, and more for each property in one space.

Enhanced Booking Management

With the two platforms together, property owners can easily manage all of their reservations from one place, whether they come from their own website or other channels like Airbnb. From TIDY’s and Lodgify’s unified dashboard, you can view one booking calendar for all of your upcoming stays. Here, you can also manage any cancellations, confirmations, payments, and reviews.

The two platforms also let you communicate with your guests before, during, and after their stay. And you can send them automated messages, confirmations, invoices, and reminders.

You can also collect payments securely through Lodgify’s payment gateway or integrate with other payment providers like Stripe or PayPal. This streamlined booking management solution provides a hassle-free experience for you and your guests, enhancing the professionalism of your rental business.

Steps to Integrate TIDY and Lodgify

It’s clear that TIDY and Lodgify are each powerful platforms in their own right. But together, they're revolutionary. And combining them is easier than you think. Here are the steps to integrate your TIDY and Lodgify accounts:

Create a TIDY Account

The first step is to create a TIDY account if you don't already have one. To do so, sign up for free on the TIDY website or download the TIDY app on your iOS or Android device. Then, you will need to provide some basic information about yourself and your properties, such as your name, email address, phone number, location, number of bedrooms, bathrooms, etc.

You will also need to choose the right plan for you based on the number of properties you own. The plans range from $0 to $10 per unit per month. Confirm your account via email, and you are good to go.

Create a Lodgify Account

The next step is to create a Lodgify account (if you also don't yet have one). You can sign up for a free trial on the Lodgify website, or speak with a representative to decide the best plan for you. You will also need to provide some basic information about yourself and your properties. You may need to wait for the company to verify your information, and then confirm your account via email.

Link Your TIDY and Lodgify Accounts

Once you have your accounts, you'll need to link them so they can communicate with each other. To do this, simply follow these steps:

  • Log in to your TIDY account on the web or app.
  • Go to the “Integrations” page and click on the Lodgify icon.
  • Enter your Lodgify username and password and click “Connect.”
  • Select the properties you want to sync and click “Save.”

That’s it! You have successfully integrated TIDY and Lodgify. You can now see your Lodgify calendar on your TIDY dashboard and automatically schedule cleanings after each checkout.

Schedule a Cleaning

The final step is to schedule a cleaning for your properties. You can do this in two ways:

  • Automatically: You don't need to do anything if you have linked your TIDY and Lodgify accounts. TIDY will automatically schedule a cleaning for your properties after each checkout based on your preferences. You can also adjust the cleaning time, frequency, and duration as needed.
  • Manually: If you prefer to schedule a cleaning manually, you can do so by logging into your TIDY account and clicking on the Schedule button. Choose the property, date, time, and cleaner you want. You can also add any special instructions or requests for your cleaner.

Once you have scheduled a cleaning, you can track its status, communicate with your cleaning team, and receive photos of the cleaned property on your TIDY dashboard.

Congratulations, you’ve now integrated TIDY and Lodgify together. Now you can optimize your entire rental management process, enhance guest experiences, and grow your business operations.

How Does the Integration Work?

TIDY and Lodgify have collaborated to make the integration between the two platforms work seamlessly. After you integrate your accounts, TIDY pulls all your listings from Lodgify and creates them as properties in TIDY. Then, when a new guest reservation appears on your Lodgify account, it's also automatically added to your "Reservations" tab within TIDY.

Now TIDY knows the reservation details and when to automatically book a cleaning between guests' check-in and check-out. The turnover cleaning follows any instructions you set under "Automatic Booking." Your selected “Pros,” or professional cleaning crew, can still accept each job as usual.

Once a Pro is assigned the job, they will receive your instructions and cleaning procedures, access the To-Do List (if you have one), and communicate with you through TIDY. The app will notify you according to the notification settings you determined under preferences. The Pro will also send you photos of updates through TIDY. And just like that, your property is ready for the next guest.

You can then continue managing your properties on the Lodgify platform, automatically or manually setting up cleanings as needed. Both TIDY and Lodgify have 24/7 customer service to address your needs or concerns throughout the entire hosting journey.

How Automatic Booking Works

Automatic booking is a valuable tool that all hosts should consider. The integration between these platforms makes automating the majority of your hosting process easier than ever.

Automatic booking works by TIDY identifying each new guest reservation from your Lodgify account, and automatically adding it to your "Reservations" tab in the TIDY app. Then, once the check-out notification occurs, TIDY automatically requests a turnover cleaning, following the instructions you set under "Automatic Booking." Your pre-selected Pros will then be on their way to getting the job done.

Now, you can sit back and relax while your Pros send you live tracking of tasks in the TIDY app, along with photos of the progress or the final result. You can also communicate with them directly in the app to ask questions or let them know about any concerns. This process continues for each booking, making the cleaning process completely automated.

TIDY also offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee, meaning there’s no need to worry about any errors.
