A Hyderabad-based Startup is connecting Hostels and Tenants on a Single Platform

Hostels and PGs: A secure and affordable accommodation

 

Going to a new city for work, studies or just a trip means one needs to find a comfortable and secure accommodation without burning a hole in the pocket. While finding such an accommodation is not everyone’s cup of tea. PGs and Hostels are the places where could stay comfortably and securely with spending just a small amount. But unlike hotels, one has to search for them thoroughly in different areas, and being a newbie in the city adds on to the problem.

 

 

 

 

To solve this problem, Hyderabad based JoeyRooms have come up with an innovative idea where you need not pay bigger amounts to fancy hotels for a secure and comfortable accommodation. Rather you could find a could accommodation which is secure, comfortable, homely as well as fits well in your pocket, via Joeyrooms.

 

The user gets to choose from a fleet of PGs and Hostels in the desired Location with the one minute PG Locator. Joeyrooms website acts as a platform where PGs and Hostels could register themselves and update their details from time to time.

 

The user could give reviews, select PGs based on the reviews, location and the services provided to them. In its initial stage, Joeyrooms offers the PGs and Hostel accommodation only for Bengaluru  and Hyderabad, but are planning to soon expand their services to other cities across India.

 

How they built a secure and reliable service with real-time robust communication.

 

As soon as a User signs up, they get a verification code on the number they have provided while filling up the Signup form. The user is kept in sync every time they opt to rent a property with message alerts. The entire communication such as the updates, PG owner details, OTPs, Verification codes, Offers and other information is communicated via SMS using MSG91 SMS Gateway services.

 

 

 

 

The Communication process remains robust, reliable, secure and real-time making the renting portal a big hit both among the PG owners and the Tenants. A proper database of both the tenants and PG owners is maintained which plays a key role in the communication with the help of the Excel Addon. Here the API directly fetches the data from the database with the help of Excel plugin, saving time and energy and preventing human errors.

 

With such a robust and reliable communication system JoeyRooms is able to make a mark in the industry raising standards of customer satisfaction paving their way for further expansions.

 

Goutham, Founder JoeyRooms says “MSG91 has helped us in establishing and maintaining a robust end-to-end communication with our users, helping us to keep in constant touch with them. While the Excel plugin has been a true time-saver by picking up the contacts straight away from the database.”
