In this tutorial, you will learn about Hyly.AI's Open Tours API Partners and how to set up or check if the ILS Authorization is enabled for a particular property for Costar, Betterbot, Rentpath, etc.
Open Tours API Partners
The ILS Authorization, if implemented, enables the clients to use our Open Tours API, which will allow integrating our calendars with theirs. For example, if the property is authorized for Betterbot, Betterbot will be able to put tours on our calendar without any error.
Another example is if a prospect schedules a tour using the ILS website, such as Apartments.com, the tour will not get integrated with the Hyly.AI system unless the ILS Authorization for the property is enabled.
Below mentioned are the Open Tours API Partners Hyly.AI has
Widgets are the automated chatbots used by property management companies to guide the leads on the property websites to take specific actions. The hyTours Scheduler can be added inside these widgets as well. Below are the partners Hyly.AI has with whom our hyTours Scheduler can be integrated.
Unit Availability Partner
Hyly.AI has partnered with Engrain to get the unit availability details from the property websites. Engrain is also our open tours API partner.
Set Up ILS Authorisation
Step 2 - Navigate to Admin Settings : Tour Scheduler
Click on 'Tour Calendars' to view other tabs on the left, then click on 'Admin Settings: Tour Scheduler'
Step 3 - Go to ILS Authorization Page
Click on 'ILS Authorization'
Step 4 - Map the Source
If it is an unmapped source, you will need to map it with the predefined ILS sources
Step 5 - Map the Assist
These Open API Partners pass us the true source of the lead to Hyly using SSID also to attribute the bots as help or assisting to covert the lead to tour; we capture it under Assist Tag. Map the assist, just below the source dropdown.
