Is AirBnB a New Kind of Cult?

In response to the Covid-19 virus, Vortex Organization's Redstone Software engineers have designed and installed a new system in their HelpBookMe property management software. It adds unoccupied dates between bookings to allow separation for guests and additional housekeeping time. These are called :"Bumper" days.
Vortex is a network of inn, resort and vacation rental management companies that share methods, staff, marketing and technology to provide sophisticated services to lodging owners who want maximum income with minimum fuss. Operators of this website are members of the group.
Trina Flanagan, a partner in the firm, said, "We have always employed strict hospitality grade cleaning and sanitizing standards used to clean the inns, resorts and vacation rental homes that its member management companies serve.
With the arrival of covid-19, Vortex managers began allowing homes to site vacant at least one day after prior guests depart and before housekeepers or new guests access the home.
But with the advent of online travel agents like AirBnB, VRBO, Booking.com and others, lodging reservations are procured from many sources and automatically downloaded into the Vortex HelpBookMe Software
Penny Taylor, a partner administering reservations at all geographic locations, add, "Although not practical in all locations, the Bumper system allows bumper dates to be added automatically in all geographic areas and in all properties where that policy is desirable."
Even with the lessening of travel restrictions, the new software capabilities increase safety while making the bumper method to be more selectively implemented.
"Our engineering team researched, coded, tested and implemented the system in record time," noted Ozair Khalid, who oversees reservations software. "Neither the corporate management companies nor major software providers have not rolled out a similar tool. Too bad for their manager customers."
