Intrinsiq Support: Accommodation Allocation

Published Bernice on Wednesday, July 28, 2021 12:00 AM

Accommodation Allocation Matching

Many schools offer home-stay accommodation as one of their options for when students book courses at their school. This is still a very popular choice among students, and, as a result, very often, schools go through a lot of work in order to make sure that the student is matched with the right family; or to keep track of when a specific family will not be available to host.

While some schools and education providers within the field of international education are still doing manual homestay allocation, the Intrinsiq system has been developed to such an extent that it allows for students to be matched with the right family….automatically, at the click of a button.

Families who are not able to host students for a period of time

The Intrinsiq system has a home-stay portal, where host families can log in and mark the days they will be on holiday or cannot host. They can even mark off one of their rooms as not being available, if for example, they need to do maintenance on it at a certain time.

Matching the right student with the right family

On top of that, the system also matches the student to the family when allocating, based on the criteria marked in the student’s profile and in the host’s profile. When allocating, the Intrinsiq system will list down those families that have availability for the period the student requires, and they are also sorted by matching percentage. Therefore, instead of taking the time to make calls and check for availability the system ''does everything for you''!

How is it possible for the Intrinsiq system to match students and host families so accurately?

This kind of automated matching is possible thanks to the data that members of staff enter into the Intrinsiq system about their accommodation options and students when they book. The system filters through the available accommodation options as per the booking date, and it also filters as per the student necessities, requirements and wishes. For example, if a student wants to stay in a single room in a host family without pets, the system will automatically filter out all those host families who do not have a single room option and those who have pets.

Final confirmation at the click of a button

Once the student is allocated to a particular family, the Intrinsiq system automatically sends off a notification to the family at the click of a button. That way the family receives the student info and also confirms the booking.
