Rebranding as VacayHome Connect signifies movement into a new phase as the company continues to invest in next-gen infrastructure and technology innovations for the vacation rental industry
June 29, 2017 – VacayStay Connect, a leading full-service distribution solution for the vacation rental industry, announced today that it is changing its corporate name to VacayHome Connect. The name change reflects the company’s commitment to the vacation rental industry and its expertise in driving results through innovations needed to shape the future of the vacation rental industry.
“We believe the name VacayHome Connect better reflects our core customer base as we introduce new innovative product and services,” said Sunil Aluvila, President and CEO. “After working to help professional property managers make their vacation rental properties available for instant booking through major online travel sites, we understand that today’s travel sites do not always support the requirements of vacation rental managers to dynamically apply flexible pricing rules and restrictions, efficiently handle guest interactions and generate incremental revenue. Our company is committed to deliver the best solution in the industry for the distribution of vacation homes and feel that our company name should reflect these efforts.”
Earlier this year, the Company has made some significant advances in the distribution of vacation rentals:
- Aggregate the largest collection of instant-bookable resort inventory on the HomeAway network.
- Piloted the development and testing of HomeAway’s new multi-unit property user interface.
- Launched the first ever private distribution channel for the vacation rental industry, allowing guests to book their stay with points through participating channels.
“As a company with its roots in distribution technology, we are focused on delivering breakthrough products and services that will help connect all the points in the vacation rental distribution continuum,” said Michael Montemurro, COO of VacayHome Connect. “We know the majority of vacation rental managers want to run their business their way while still reaching consumers across a variety of travel distribution channels. To that end, we will continue to provide them with the products and services they need to better support their distribution strategy, while making it work within capabilities of their property management system.”
