In the competitive landscape of Vacation Rentals (VRM) and Short Term Rentals (STR), property managers must embrace technology to control their own destiny.
Evan Dolgow – leading the predictive hospitality movement within Aidaptive – walks us through an understanding of STR & VRM technology in this video.

We’ve re-recorded it to share more broadly to empower STR property managers and vacation rental management professionals to feel comfortable with their data, with technology, and provide actionable steps to take this week to improve your direct booking performance.
