As the vacation rental industry grows, so do the opportunities for property managers. Growing your vacation rental business is not an easy feat but, with the right tools and resources, it’s more achievable than ever.

Property managers are always on the lookout for new specialised software and products to streamline their operations, marketing, distribution, guest communication, and other processes.

Startups around the world are always ready to respond to this need, coming up with innovative products and services to help property managers step up their game. 

So to help both property managers and new startups get moving on the journey towards growth, we are creating VRTECH Spotlight. It’s a video series where we introduce cool tech innovations in the vacation rental industry and the startups behind them.

Komodore is the check-in app that short-term rental property managers use to automate guest communication, traveller registration and other check-in related tasks. It lets you provide your guests with an interactive digital welcome book and a smart door opening system that elevates the check-in experience.
