083: Noiseaware | Andrew Schulz | The Smoke Detector for Noise
Noisey guests can be a huge headache for owners in the short term rental industry. Andrew Schulz from Noiseaware along with Co-Founder dave Strauss are on a mission to change that ! They have created smart noise sensors which will alert you to any issues in your property, wherever you are in the world. In short they’re giving people the power to know the noise level at their property anytime, anywhere.
Or, as the guys both told me when I met them at the first London UK VRTech Live on 9th March, they’ve party pooping their way around the globe!
As Anthony Robbins says, “Why wait to be Memorable?” This type of technology, embraced before others can help you stand out and be memorable to guests, building bookings and when it comes to inviting past guests back – you will be remembered for the excellent, innovative service you offered last time they were there! It’s time to embrace technology and embrace change, the change element is something we owners are good at but in this instance we can use technology to our advantage too!
In this episode Andrew Schultz joins me on the podcast – Andrew is the Co-Founder of Noiseaware, a new easily accessible product that
prevents noise pollution with innovative technology and remarkable customer service.
