The Doinn Team
What are the channel managers?
Channel managers are software solutions that help property managers and vacation rental hosts manage their listings on multiple online travel agencies (OTAs) from a single platform. This can save a lot of time and hassle, as it eliminates the need to log into each OTA individually to update listings and rates.
In recent years, channel managers have also become increasingly important for cleaning companies. As more and more property managers and vacation rental hosts outsource their cleaning needs, cleaning companies need to be able to manage bookings and schedules across multiple platforms (PMS´s).
Rentals United and Doinn are the leading channel managers in the vacation rental industry and both offer a variety of features to help streamline their operations, but there are some key differences between the two.
Rentals United is a channel manager that specializes in connecting property managers and vacation rental hosts with OTAs. It offers a wide range of features, including:
- Two-way synchronization with over 60 OTAs
- Automated pricing and availability updates
- Centralized booking management
- Real-time reporting
Doinn is an operations platform for cleaning companies. It offers a variety of features to help cleaning companies manage their operations, including:
- A channel manager for cleaning companies
- A job scheduler
- A team management system
- A reporting dashboard
|Team management system||No||Yes|
|Focus||Property managers||Property managers and Cleaning companies|
When the two leading channel managers, Rentals United and Doinn , integrate together, it creates a seamless and automated vacation rental booking and management system. This benefits all parties involved, from the property managers and vacation rental hosts to the cleaning companies and guests.
Here are some of the benefits of integrating Rentals United and Doinn:
- Reduced human error: Automated booking and management systems reduce the risk of human errors, such as overbooking or double booking. This can save everyone involved a lot of time and hassle.
- Increased efficiency: An integrated system can help property managers, vacation rental hosts, and cleaning companies to streamline their operations and save time. For example, cleaning companies can automatically receive job bookings from Rentals United and then schedule them in Doinn, without having to manually enter the information into both systems.
- Improved guest experience: An integrated system can help to improve the guest experience by ensuring that bookings are processed quickly and accurately. Additionally, cleaning companies can use Doinn to track their employee performance and ensure that guests are receiving high-quality cleaning services.
Here is an example of how an integrated system could work in practice:
- A guest books a vacation rental through an OTA that is connected to Rentals United.
- Rentals United automatically sends the booking information to Doinn.
- Doinn creates a new job in the cleaning company’s schedule.
- The cleaning company receives a notification of the new job on their mobile app.
- The cleaning company accepts the job and assigns it to a cleaner.
- The cleaner completes the job and marks it as complete in Doinn.
- Doinn automatically updates Rentals United with the job status.
- The guest receives a notification that their vacation rental has been cleaned.
This is just one example of how an integrated system can be used to automate the vacation rental booking and management process. With an integrated system, everyone involved can focus on what they do best and provide the best possible experience for guests.

In addition to the features listed above, Doinn also offers a number of other features that are specifically designed for cleaning companies. For example, Doinn allows cleaning companies to:
- Receive last-minute job changes by phone and easily update their schedules accordingly
- Manage their inventory of cleaning supplies and equipment
- Track their employee performance
Doinn also offers a mobile app that allows cleaning companies to manage their operations on the go.

A Key Driver of Efficiency and Growth for Cleaning Companies
The cleaning industry is increasingly adopting software automation to streamline operations, enhance efficiency, and achieve significant business growth.
Benefits of Doinn Software Automation
- Time savings: Doinn eliminates time-consuming manual tasks, allowing cleaning companies to reallocate resources to more strategic business areas and achieve similar or even better outputs with fewer resources.
- More accurate data and reports: Doinn eliminates errors in data collection and reporting, providing reliable insights for informed decision-making.
- Increased customer satisfaction: Doinn improves customer satisfaction by enabling real-time tracking and monitoring of cleaning activities, faster resolution of service issues, and better access to automated reporting and dashboards.
Examples of Automation by Doinn
- Workforce planning: Doinn generates operational rosters based on budget considerations and automatically fills open shifts.
- Service status: Doinn provides notifications when an employee starts and finishes a service.
- Reporting: Doinn automates financial reporting, compliance monitoring and reporting, and client dashboards.
- Integration: Doinn integrates job management from hundreds of PMSs to eliminate manual data entry and reduce the risk of errors.
Getting Started with Doinn
Cleaning companies can embark on the software automation journey by identifying critical areas within their business that heavily rely on manual processes. Payroll and finance departments often make excellent starting points, as automating these functions can lead to immediate time and cost savings. Companies can then expand automation to operations and workforce planning, optimising resource allocation and enhancing overall operational efficiency.
For those using multiple software solutions, it is crucial to identify areas of integration to ensure seamless data flows between systems. Integrating job management, financial, and reporting systems enables real-time data synchronisation and eliminates the need for duplicate data entry, reducing errors and improving data accuracy.
The Future of Software Automation in the Cleaning Industry
With the expansion of the Internet of Things (IoT) and connected devices, we can anticipate more intelligent automation in the cleaning industry. For instance, bins equipped with sensors can detect when they are full and send alerts for timely emptying. At the same time, smart soap dispensers can notify when running low, ensuring uninterrupted service.
Additionally, advancements in generative AI are set to revolutionise software automation in the cleaning industry. Imagine the ability to query business data using natural language and receive immediate results, streamlining decision-making processes and driving further efficiency gains.
The strategic imperative
Doinn’s software automation is a strategic imperative for cleaning companies that want to achieve higher productivity, accuracy, and profitability levels in today’s competitive landscape. By investing in the right technology and implementing tailored automation solutions, cleaning companies can position themselves at the forefront of the industry and deliver exceptional service to their customers.

The Importance of Short-Term Rentals for LGBTQ+ travelers
As we embrace the colorful and vibrant celebration of Pride Month, it’s crucial to acknowledge the role of short-term rentals in fostering unity, love, and acceptance.
Beyond being a convenient accommodation option, the industry has become a safe haven for LGBTQ+ travelers and an avenue for expressing identity and celebrating diversity. In this blog, we explore the significance of short-term rentals during Pride Month and the impact they have on creating inclusive and memorable experiences.
- A Welcoming Environment: Short-term rentals offer LGBTQ+ travelers a unique sense of comfort and safety. By providing private spaces, these rentals allow individuals and couples to express themselves freely without fear of discrimination or judgment. Whether it’s a cozy apartment or a stylish home, these accommodations create an inclusive environment where LGBTQ+ guests can feel embraced and respected.
- Connection with Local LGBTQ+ Communities: Short-term rentals often provide opportunities to connect with local LGBTQ+ communities, offering a chance to discover vibrant neighborhoods, events, and initiatives specific to Pride Month. Hosts, who are often enthusiastic locals, can share insider tips, recommend LGBTQ+ friendly venues, and foster a sense of belonging for guests. This connection enhances the overall travel experience, making it more immersive and memorable.
- Flexibility and Privacy: Short-term rentals offer the flexibility to curate personalized Pride Month experiences. Whether attending pride parades, joining LGBTQ+ cultural events, or exploring queer history, guests can plan their itinerary based on their interests and preferences. Moreover, the privacy provided by these rentals allows LGBTQ+ travelers to fully embrace and express their identities, making their journey a deeply personal and empowering experience.
- Embracing Diversity: The short-term rental industry celebrates diversity by offering a wide range of accommodations to suit different tastes and needs. LGBTQ+ travelers can find LGBTQ+ owned or LGBTQ+ friendly rentals that align with their values and preferences. This aspect not only fosters a sense of belonging but also contributes to the empowerment and support of LGBTQ+ business owners within the industry.
- Platform Initiatives: Several short-term rental platforms actively support and celebrate Pride Month. They create dedicated LGBTQ+ travel sections, collaborate with LGBTQ+ influencers, and offer resources that highlight LGBTQ+-friendly destinations and experiences. Such initiatives amplify LGBTQ+ voices, drive visibility, and encourage further acceptance and inclusivity.
As we commemorate Pride Month, Airbnb also talks about the power of inclusive language, but what is important is to recognize the vital role that short-term rentals play in creating a welcoming and inclusive environment for LGBTQ+ travelers. By providing a safe and accepting space, connecting with local communities, offering flexibility and privacy, embracing diversity, and supporting relevant initiatives, the industry continues to promote unity, love, and acceptance.
Let us celebrate the power of short-term rentals in making Pride Month experiences truly extraordinary and unforgettable (and professionally clean with Doinn)
