img Dea BukitVista | March 31, 2024

Recently, the term “digital transformation” has become more than just a buzzword; the real estate industry stands on the cusp of a revolution, powered by property technology, or PropTech. This shift is also reflected in Bukit Vista‘s endeavors. In our recent collaboration with the Center for Digital Society (CFDS) at Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM), we shared insights into the technological advancements we have implemented in property management.

This collaboration culminated in Bukit Vista’s featured participation in the 10th series of the Decision talk show on March 21, 2024, a platform dedicated to unveiling the intricacies of digital innovation across various sectors. As a Public Relations Intern, I, Dea Novita, am eager to delve into some of the key takeaways and learning moments that underscored our engagement. Our participation highlighted the essence of collaboration, innovation, and the relentless pursuit of excellence in harnessing technology to redefine the parameters of property management and hospitality services.

The session kicked off with an introduction from Carmelia Gaby Talia, warmly greeting the audience with a blend of cultural salutations, setting the tone for an inclusive and enlightening discussion. The focus of this particular episode was on Bukit Vista, a leading PropTech company that exemplifies the integration of digital technology in property management, marketing, and services. With over 100 properties managed in Bali and Yogyakarta and nearly 56,000 guests accommodated, Bukit Vista’s story reflects the impact of digitalization on the real estate landscape.

AI: A Tool that Transforms Modern Living

A significant part of the discussion centered around the role of artificial intelligence (AI) in redefining property marketing and management. Bukit Vista utilizes AI to optimize property listings on platforms like Airbnb, ensuring maximum visibility and engagement. This innovative use of technology extends to GAIA, an AI-based internal assistant that revolutionizes guest communication and operational tasks, showcasing the potential of AI in enhancing customer service and operational efficiency.

GAIA embodies the company’s innovative approach to enhancing operational efficiency and guest experiences through technology. This AI assistant showcases the practical application of AI in automating and optimizing various aspects of property management and customer service.

  1. Automated Guest Communication: GAIA is primarily designed to automate communication with guests, offering timely and accurate responses to their inquiries. This automation not only improves the efficiency of handling guest queries but also ensures that the guest experience is seamless and personalized.
  2. Operational Efficiency: By automating routine tasks, GAIA significantly reduces the workload on human staff, allowing them to focus on more complex and value-added activities. This shift towards automation helps streamline operations and improve the overall service quality offered to guests.

  3. Learning and Adaptation: GAIA is not just a static AI; it’s built to learn from interactions and improve over time. This ability to adapt and evolve makes Gaya a powerful tool for understanding guest preferences and enhancing the personalization of services.

The Use of AI in Bukit Vista

Furqon shared a compelling example of Gaya’s application in addressing a guest’s inquiry about breakfast inclusion in their booking. Traditionally, such queries would require human intervention, where a staff member would need to manually check the booking details and respond to the guest. However, with Gaya, this process is automated. The AI can swiftly retrieve booking information, understand the specific query about breakfast inclusion, and provide a clear, concise response to the guest directly. 

Bukit Vista’s Cybersecurity Strategy in Securing the Digital Frontier

As the digital landscape evolves, Bukit Vista’s approach to cybersecurity and the management of large-scale property data was also scrutinized. The company’s proactive stance on integrating cybersecurity measures and prioritizing the protection of digital assets was emphasized as crucial in the age of increasing cyber threats.

The talkshow did not just highlight the successes and innovations of Bukit Vista but also posed critical questions about the future of PropTech in addressing urban challenges, regulatory frameworks, and the digital divide. These discussions underscored the importance of continuous learning, adaptation, and the strategic use of technology to overcome traditional barriers and unlock new opportunities in the real estate sector.
