It’s Time to Take a Stand Together

Earlier this spring, we made a conscious decision to pull away from any two-way integration with HomeAway’s and VRBO’s advertising platform for our product, and we’d like to explain why.

The decision was a direct result of Home Away’s announcement of their recently updated Listing Agreement for Property Managers. This updated agreement includes expansion of off-platform booking definitions, a new set of reporting requirements, and a mandatory submission to internal business audits conducted by HomeAway.

Founder of VROOMRes

“I’m extremely good at fixing things and identifying what’s wrong and how to solve the problem.”

These simple words describe the mindset of Kevin High, founder of VROOMRes.

Kevin has applied this mindset in advertising, academia, boat motors, software, and nanotechnology, among other things. In his latest venture, he brings his solution-oriented mindset to the field of property management with innovative technological solutions. The name of the short-term rental game is reservations. The first response to an inquiry will most likely book the reservation, which means that homeowners or their property managers have to regularly check and update their home listings on multiple websites, such as Airbnb, HomeAway, and VRBO. And users struggle to keep pace with the websites and the software.

High began looking for a better software solution for his own property management company. Finding none that fit all of his company’s needs and discussing property management challenges with other managers, High decided to put his technology and business skills to work. Thus VROOMRes was born: a property management system developed by property managers for property managers. The modular components of VROOMRes are intuitive, thoughtful, and process-driven to meet the needs of individual property owners.
