Technology is the biggest catalyst of growth in the vacation rental industry. So much so that some property management companies consider tech the core of their business. 

A tech-driven approach is often what distinguishes successful property managers from ones who struggle to keep up. By automating certain marketing, distribution, revenue management, guest communication and other operational processes, companies are able to scale rapidly and respond to the shifting demands of the market.

To help you stay up-to-date on the latest developments in vacation rental technology, we’ve created a FREE WHITEPAPER called the Global Short-Term Rental Tech Report 2020: Stats, Trends and Investment
