Skip to main content CEO Henry Bennett talks with Jasper Ribbers about Affordable Technology for Airbnb Hosts

We were kindly invited to talk on the hit podcast Get Paid For Your Pad about and the general tech eco-system for Airbnb hosts. Henry & Jasper talked about how most vacation rental tech is built for large companies and ultimately smaller property managers and Airbnb hosts end up over paying for technology.

The talk focuses on how Airbnb hosts and vacation rental managers who manage under 10 units can reduce the cost of their tech stack to maximise their profits. Henry discusses that many enquires for are managing up to 50 properties without using a PMS systems. These property managers use only  a channel manager such as Rentals United or SyncBnB and then manually manage the cleaning and other operational aspects without any technology. Whilst this approach increases profit in the short term, it is clear the eco-system could do with tech products that also cater for these hosts that do not have the budget for a costly PMS.
