Guesty announces direct integration with HomeAway

Israel: Management platform Guesty has announced its users will be able to integrate directly with HomeAway’s distribution network and manage their listings from the Guesty dashboard.

In a press release, Guesty COO Vered Schwarz said: “Enabling our users to more seamlessly manage their properties is of the utmost importance to Guesty. That’s why we dedicate countless resources to direct integrations with our valued channel partners.

“We are excited to add HomeAway to that list. HomeAway is a strong player in the vacation rental ecosystem and our direct integration will provide Guesty users with increased exposure, specialized support and more, enabling them to focus on what matters most: growing their businesses,” she added.

The addition is the latest in a list of capabilities that Guesty has added to its platform in the last quarter alone to ensure that short-term property managers can do it all from the Guesty dashboard. These updates include a revamped mobile app, the ability to manage multi-unit listings from our platform and access to advanced analytics that can be utilised to make data-driven decisions.

Guesty’s direct integration with HomeAway means:
● Property managers get paid right away: they can process traveller payments automatically (currently available to those with existing Stripe accounts)
● This integration enables property managers to automatically distribute their listings from Guesty to HomeAway with a single log-in
● Property managers’ data automatically syncs: listings stay up-to-date across all HomeAway
● Specialised, quick customer support: Guesty users who take advantage of this integration will have access to a support team dedicated to integrated property managers

In the last year, Guesty’s customer base has increased by 100 per cent and employee count has risen to more than 260 staff, spread out across seven offices worldwide (and counting). The company is now the highest-funded short-term rental PMS on the market, according to Crunchbase, with $60 million in funding.

Guesty says it has customers in 70+ countries managing hundreds of thousands of listings who report an average 150 per cent increase in revenue annually, a 100 per cent increase in listings annually and 50 or more hours saved per week, on average, due to Guesty’s features.
