Guesty adds StaySense to series of acquisitions

US / Israel: Operations and property management platform, Guesty, has announced the acquisition of StaySense, a technology provider of localised solutions for vacation rental managers.

The acquisition represents a key addition for Guesty as it continues to expand its services and provide advanced capabilities to property and vacation rental managers.

Guesty and StaySense have collaborated a number of times over the past few years. Integrating StaySense’s technology into the Guesty platform will provide customers with access to more comprehensive direct booking and marketing tools, as well as diversified distribution channels to optimise revenue and build leading hospitality brands, and it will also help bolster and support local economies – and local businesses.

Amiad Soto, co-founder and CEO of Guesty, said: “We are thrilled to welcome the StaySense team and David Angotti to the Guesty family. In doing so, Guesty is building out its local distribution arm for US vacation rental managers, deepening its connection with the US leisure market, and diversifying distribution strategies for Guesty customers.

“David fits beautifully into Guesty’s DNA of industry experts and the acquisition of StaySense further strengthens our position as the leading platform for vacation rental managers,” he added.

StaySense founder David Angotti said: “Joining forces with Guesty is an exciting opportunity for StaySense. We share a common vision for the future of hospitality, and together we can provide more value to our clients so they can continue to provide great guest experiences and grow locally and globally.”

Angotti will now join the Guesty team from his Nashville office, and will bring vast professional experience across the entire lifecycle of the short-term rental market and deep familiarity with the vacation rental industry.

Guesty has acquired six hospitality companies over the past two years, with the vision to consolidate a dynamic yet fragmented hospitality industry. The acquisitions include hotel-focused revenue and channel manager, YieldPlanethotel-focused, Queensland-based HiRUM; and property management software companies Kigo, MyVR and Your Porter.

With the addition of StaySense, Guesty said that it was continuing to bring the industry’s best teams and regional leaders under one entity, and investing substantial resources and R&D efforts into solving challenges facing the hospitality businesses.

Today, the all-in-one platform has 15 offices and 800+ team members across the globe.
