…this is probably a bit premature, however it does get me excited as it begins to address a shortcoming in Lodgix that’s been present for almost a decade.   That’s right a decade, since our inception. 🙂

While Lodgix has some pretty snazzy housekeeping and arrival reports, as well as Employee logins, and automated SMS and email triggers.   We don’t have:

  • any way to assign invoices to Housekeepers;
  • any way for a Housekeeper to update the status of a property (clean, dirty, inspection, etc..), view Housekeeping notes, etc.;
  • a Housekeeping app, designed only for mobile phones, that a Housekeeper can use in the field to easily update the property status and communicate with Lodgix.  Also the app should display assigned work orders, as well as allow work orders to be opened / edited and closed;
  • a visual way for the host / property manager to see (and edit) the current clean status of a property;

So coding has started, won’t know how long this will take for a couple more weeks.  Currently researching interfaces that perform well on a phone!

Fingers crossed!
