Homestay Systems

We make advanced homestay coordination easier by enabling everyone online

Coordinators and hosts can access and update their homestay profiles online.

 

Homestay families can see compatible groups based on distance, availability and other advanced filters, and receive updates via emails when new groups become available for them to consider. Coordinators may also promote available groups to a filtered list of homestay families with email or SMS campaigns including personalized information.

 

Homestay families may apply to host guests of any available groups, with a clear view of hosting requirements and options to express their preferences. Coordinators can then process applicants with a clear sense of their hosting preferences, family photo, inspection score, review count, average review score, and other profile information. When confirming a homestay family or adding them to the backup list for a group, a customizable and personalized update can be sent to the homestay family by email with a click.

 

We save time and improve accuracy by performing many such processes automatically or with a click of a button.

About Us

Homestay Systems was initially created by Websight Creative from 2016, to support Choice Homestay.

 

Homestay Systems now enables Choice Homestay to perform existing processes quicker and easier than ever before, as well as many advanced processes which were not accessible before. This enables Choice Homestay to provide advanced homestay coordination to clients and over 3000 guests per year as well as over 1600 approved homestay families in Queensland, Australia.

 

In light of Choice Homestay’s success with Homestay Systems in Australia, we decided in 2018 to create a new and further improved commercial version of Homestay Systems for homestay agencies around the globe to also operate easier and better. We firmly believe that enabling easier and better homestay coordination intentionally enables homestay coordinators to match-make and support better shared homestay connections, experiences, appreciation for one-another and ongoing relationships.

 

This new version of Homestay Systems has been created to be extra customisable with varying account permission options, accessible, secure, functional and quick, while providing a super-collaborative real-time view of data including any data changes by anyone without needing to refresh. We’re proud to say the outcome of our efforts are evolutionary and we look forward to sharing more sense of Homestay Systems with more homestay agencies here in Australia and abroad. Please feel welcome to contact for more sense of homestay coordination potentials.
