Podcast 230 explores services from Advanced Outdoor Solutions

The guests today are Kathleen Walsh, president of Advanced Outdoor Solutions; and Bob Gillcash, the senior vice president.

They provide some history about the company and an overview of the services Advanced Outdoor Solutions can offer to campground owners and RV park developers.

Based near Fort Myers, Fla., the company provides a myriad of services to help campgrounds utilize technology to become more efficient. Not only that, but the company can assist in the development or expansion of campgrounds as well as the day-to-day management of those facilities.

They describe the features of the company’s Mosaic reservation system that enables campgrounds to manage reservations as efficiently as it manages social media and digital marketing – all from the same platform.

The basic system is perfect for smaller campgrounds, they explain, while a more robust advanced version is designed for larger RV parks.

Advanced Outdoor Solutions is also a big advocate for rate management strategies that can increase campground sales by as much as 150 percent, especially with the ability to add additional services to guest reservations, such as tickets and golf cart rentals.

The company has its roots in the hotel industry, and is now ready to bring some outside-the-box thinking to the outdoor hospitality market.

The company’s tagline is “Thinking outside the tent.” Kathleen Walsh and Bob Gilcash are correct in noting that people are looking at campgrounds to provide more than a parking space for an RV – they are expecting the business to deliver a quality experience for their families.
