Guesty Lite aims to enhance listing visibility across major booking channels, streamline daily operations, and facilitate growth, all from a unified platform. This initiative promises to help hosts boost their revenue and provide outstanding guest experiences effortlessly.
The short-term rental sector has experienced consistent growth, with a quarterly supply increase of 15% from 2022 to 2023. In a market with over 4 million Airbnb hosts alone, standing out is crucial for attracting guests. Guesty Lite addresses the complete spectrum of property management and distribution needs, offering vital tools to gain a competitive edge.
Amiad Soto, CEO of Guesty, emphasized the importance of enabling hosts, even those with a single property, to maximize their investment. He highlighted the burgeoning short-term rental market’s demand for differentiation and how Guesty Lite meets this need by offering a scalable, feature-rich software solution.
Guesty Lite is powered by the company’s extensive industry expertise and a robust R&D department comprising over 200 engineers. The package includes several key features, such as the Channel Manager for listing properties on multiple booking platforms like Airbnb, Booking.com, and Vrbo effortlessly. Its Multi-Calendar feature provides a comprehensive booking overview to prevent double bookings, while advanced automation tools facilitate tasks like pricing optimization, guest communication, and cleaner scheduling. Initially available in English, French, Portuguese, Italian, and Spanish, Guesty Lite combines global reach with a localized approach.
Markus Nordvik, Guesty’s General Manager of Global Host Solutions, explained that Guesty Lite was developed in response to user feedback and industry insights. The package aims to address the challenges hosts face in scaling their businesses due to time constraints.
