For local inhabitants and businesses, the disaster is also economic. Florida is a big travel market. With great beaches and world-famous attractions such as Walt Disney World and Universal Studios, the state attracts many families who book a vacation rental for their stay. Cities like Orlando and Kissimmee usually rank high in market size for vacation rental revenues.

If you are scaling your property management business, it comes a time when you wonder you should be switching from using third-party software to owning your tech stack. The need for making the jump may come from a desire to adapt your technology to the way you run your business (and not the opposite), to deliver a better guest experience, or to attract investors by raising the tech profile of your company. When do you know whether it is time for you to own vs rent your tech? What are the pros and the cons? Join us for a free, live workshop on July 8. We’ll be discussing the topic with Alexi Jones, the founder of digital hospitality solution Yoomondo. Aliw will also reveal how Rental Scale-Up members can purchase and make their own the source code powering Yoomondo.

Register for Alexi Jones’ discussion on “The Pros And Cons Of Owning Your Tech With Yoomondo” at 10:00 am EST/ 04:00 pm Central European Time today.
