Ep 011: Systemised = Optimized | Website Mastery | Ian Woolley | HLS Solutions

Ian joins us from HLS Solutions

Systemizing is one of the most important things you can do for your business and one way of doing this is through a management system that tracks the entire process.

Ian’s Company have evolved with the assistance of it’s customers’ feedback, into a provider of a great range of solutions for the holiday home owner and letting agent.

Today’s episode talks about the importance of the management process and how a management system that tracks all processes within your holiday let business can do this, when our memory fails us, the system won’t.

We talk about how Ian’s software works and how it can benefit us. The HLS software truly tracks all processes within the business from marketing, enquiries, through maintenance, cleaning and changeovers, through to the guest processes to following up and asking for feedback to continued contact with past guests.

I’m a huge advocate of systems and processes; they make huge differences in your business:

  • More efficient
  • Easier to run
  • The processes run more smoothly
  • Easier to deal with staff
  • Ultimately increasing your bookings,
  • Saving you time
  • Reducing costs

The creation of the systems makes you look at each step you take and question if it’s right and if you’re doing it the best way possible for your holiday let business. If you want to begin systemizing your processes within your holiday let business but don’t know where to start, head over to the contacts page and send me a message.

Systemizing is one of the most important things you can do for your business and one way of doing this is through a management system that tracks the entire process.
